Bart Simpson is promoting Scientology now



It seems that Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson on some show called The Simpsons (it may be new, or a midseason replacement or something) has recorded a message touting a Scientology speaking engagement she has in L.A. on Saturday. That's no surprise, but what is shocking is that she uses the voice and very name of Bart Simpson to do her shilling.

In a move that likely violates her contract in more ways than we can count -- who knows? maybe they paid a licensing fee -- Cartwright begins the call by saying, "Hey, what's happening, man? This is Bart Simpson! Just kidding, this is Nancy Cartwright," after which she goes on to explain that she's auditing on Operating Thetan 7, which is pretty high up the chain if our Scientologist-speak is up to date.

Listen to this YouTube recording of the phone message (before it gets yanked by salivating lawyers) and tell us, does a yellow cartoon child have the power to convince you to get a stress test?
