March 2014 'Simpsons' Episode Foreshadows FIFA Corruption Scandal

The words "FIFA" and "corruption" have been linked to each other for years now, but it wasn't until Wednesday's massive probe that the law could link them side-by-side in a large and public scale.

Did the forever socially aware Simpsons prophetically predict the widespread arrests made on Wednesday in Zurich that threw FIFA into a tailspin?

The evidence from the March 2014 episode "You Don't Have to Live Like a Referee" gives the show quite a bit of prophetic clout.

Keep in mind, it was also pretty accurate with the World Cup...
