Simpsons weird Arnold Palmer reference
Arnie referenced 4 times in brand new show!

On the day Arnold Palmer passed away, the Simpsons' new season premier referenced the great man four times. Which is weird considering the episodes are made weeks earlier.
The reference actually refers to Palmer's famous iced tea drink which Homer is planning to super-soaker Lenny with.
During the episode, Homer tells his wife Marge that he plans to “Arnold Palmer” his pal Lenny. I'm sure Arnie would have a had a little chuckle about this eerie coincidence.
All four references...
Simpsons executive producer Al Jean took to Twitter on Sunday night to express his grief over the golf legend’s death, writing, “v v sorry to learn of death of Arnold Palmer what a giant.”
