Simpsons and Neuroscience/Neuroimaging

I recently watched a great new episode of the Simpsons entitled Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind. It mocks the Michel Gondry flic that bears a similar title (I really want to go and watch his new movie Be Kind Rewind with Mos Def, btw).
What the Simpsons episode made me think of is in how many neuroscientific talks Simpson brain pictures are used as jovial illustrations. I wonder if this also holds for other disciplines or if there is something specific about the mind/brain and the Simpsons family/writers...
So here are two stills from the episode and I'm waiting for the moment when I see somebody using them in a talk.
