Happy 24th birthday to the Simpsons. Today in 1989, the first episode of the now iconic animated show aired on Fox.

More than 500 episodes later, the show is a touchstone of contemporary comedy and animation. It probably even introduced more than one word to our language (Cromulent, Meh).

It's also virtually impossible to pick a favourite episode but we thought we'd sorta try anyway. We asked our readers on Facebook and Twitter to tell us the one Simpsons episode they would watch RIGHT NOW.

Here are some of our favourite responses. Perfect for a Simpsons binge-watching session after work ("not tonight honey, I'm watching 12 Simpsons episodes back-to-back").
