Factual error: The tongue Lisa sleeps on in the museum isn't anatomically correct. It shows the bitter and sweet taste buds as being side by side on the surface of the tongue. In reality, different taste buds are not in specific places on the tongue. I wouldn't normally complain, but this is supposed to be in a museum.David Mercier
Factual error: During the video screening at the Teacher of the Year committee, the panel is watching the teacher who acts like Robin Williams. In the video the main judge says "Next" and pushes a button on the video control. It goes to the video that Bart Simpson sent in. How was this possible? The video control would only fast forward the video and two separate entries would not be sent in on the same tape. The committee wouldn't have spliced the footage together onto the same tape as the tapes were piled up on the desk. At the start of the scene one of the judges mentions to put in the next tape.Lummie
Factual error: In the scene where Lisa's great great grandmother, and the slave Virgil escape to Canada, they enter Canada across a suspension bridge, which has, on the Canadian side, the Canadian Maple Leaf flag. In 1860, Canada was not yet even a country, and the flag was the Union Jack and the Canadian Ensign. The Maple Leaf was not adopted as the Canadian flag until February 15, 1965.rswarrior
Factual error: When Chief Wiggum opens the revolver's chamber, there's 5 rounds with one open slot. In the next shot, we see the reverse end of the chamber and it's drawn in such a way to indicate those 5 rounds all have bullets in them still, meaning the empty slot is from when Maggie shot Mr. Burns. But revolvers don't eject spent shells automatically and no one handled the gun after it dropped on the floor. So the empty casing should have still been in there when Wiggum opens it up for the first time.Bishop73
Factual error: On the castle where King Henry VIII is supposed to live, the flags at the top have the pattern of the English flag, being a + shaped cross on a coloured background, but it should be a red cross on a white background. Instead it's a white cross on a blue background. Those are the colours of the Scottish flag, but England and Scotland were separate countries at that point in history. And the cross on the Scottish flag is an X shape rather than a + shape anyway.
