Mr. Burns Explains The Fiscal Cliff In 'Simpsons' PSA (VIDEO)

Are you confused about the "fiscal cliff" everyone's been talking about? Well, let Springfield's resident billionaire Mr. Burns clear things up for you.

In this post-election PSA, Mr. Burns breaks down our impending financial doom from the Springfield Republican Party HQ (complete with a sign that says, "Rape Now Bad").

While we're pretty sure you won't actually learn anything valuable about fiscal cliffs by watching this, you'll at least get a better idea of the plight of the common billionaire (and what Mr. Burns thinks of Paul Ryan).

New episodes of "The Simpsons" air Sundays at 8:00 p.m. EST/7:00 CST on Fox.
