Not like those shiftless Mennonites

| | Comments (2)

On an episode of the Simpsons tonight, the line "Ooh, the Amish are so industrious... Not like those shiftless Mennonites." Canadian Mennonite points out that Matt Groening's grandmother was a Mennonite from Saskatchewan. The question is : Would Andrea's Mennonite-radar be able to spot Matt Groening in a bar?

from the article - (A web check reveals that Great-Grandmother Groening was Aganetha Klassen, daughter of Kleine Gemeinde minister Abraham Klassen of Kansas.)
