Awesome data breakdown of Simpsons characters by word count

World-conquering super-sitcom The Simpsons is, unbelievably, beginning its 28th season. It's lasted longer than every member for the 27 club, or if you prefer your analogies less morbid, it's lasted almost three times as long as the Beatles' entire career. That's a long time.

Now, all that time has meant the creators have had plenty of time to fill Springfield with one of the most well-developed slate of supporting characters of any TV show. But who's said the most words in their time on the show? Luckily, number cruncher Todd Schneider has your back - he's done the hard sums, totted up the totals, and ranked Simpsons characters by how many words they spoke in the first 28 seasons. Enjoy getting your colleagues to guess who comes top...
