The Simpsons Leicester lockdown memes have hilariously captured the frustration of those living in the city. Let’s take a look at some.
This year, we’ve already seen plenty of The Simpsons fans highlighting what they believe are predictions the show has offered.
The hit animated sitcom has a history of appearing to foreshadow real events, such as Donald Trump’s presidency. However, in 2020 we’ve seen some fake predictions emerge too.
For example, you may remember the image being shared of Chief Wiggum kneeling on a man’s neck with Lisa holding a sign reading “Justice for George.” Although some tried to pass it off as real, it was simply a fan-made image.
On the other hand, the show has been brought into the limelight once again for those joking that Leicester will meet the same fate as Springfield in The Simpsons Movie.
Bring in the dome
Leicester is facing a localised lockdown, with the BBC noting that non-essential shops have closed suddenly and plans to open restaurants and pubs have been delayed for at least two weeks.
Additionally, schools will remain closed to the majority of students.
This is due to an increase in cases, as Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced that the city had “10% of all positive cases in the country over the past week”.
As highlighted by the Leicester Mercury, a postcode checker has been made to ensure residents know which areas of Leicestershire are in lockdown and which aren’t.
Nevertheless, confusion over lockdown restrictions remains, with many wondering how they can possibly enforce it.
Well, meme aficionados feel there’s only one solution…
The Simpsons: Leicester lockdown memes
In The Simpsons Movie, Springfield is closed off from the rest of the world and sealed in a glass dome to ensure nobody leaves.
Obviously The Simpsons hasn’t predicted this for Leicester, but it hasn’t stopped some making light of the situation and making memes.
