[TV] - Simpsons deemed not

[TV] - Simpsons deemed not Rio-friendly - If you happened to catch the Simpson's about 2 weeks ago, you saw that funny episode with the orphan from Rio who is lost, prompting a concerned Lisa and the rest of her family to fly to Rio in search of the waif. Who wouldn't, when the child was in danger of being bitten by crazed monkeys?
Well, the city of Rio is not too pleased at the portrayal they received in the episode. Legal action has begun.
The moral? Don't make a joke about anything that people have spent a lot of money trying to fool other peope about.
