NPR: Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore Not Entirely Accurate Portrayal of “Capital of India’s Booming IT Industry”

Because of the mammoth Simpsons marathon on FXXXXXXXXXX, this week NPR’s Goats and Soda blog was moved to revisit that one time where Homer went to Bangalore. The author didn’t like the episode that much — too many stereotypes! Which was kind of the point, I think?

It’s might be worth pointing out that portions of India are indeed “exotic” and “backward” — as well as a billion other things. And anyone really need to be told that monkeys don’t actually fight elephants on the streets of Bangalore? And can we really be sure that that’s never happened? I wish I had seen that.
