An IRISH Simpsons fan page miraculously uncovered a conspiracy theory about Ned Flanders.
Fans of the show will know that Ned is the god-loving neighbor, sporting a mustache and two good shoes, Homer and the gang, and most importantly, he’s left-handed.
In fact, he even has a shop that only sells left-handed products called The Leftorium.
The eagle-eyed Twitter account – Ireland Simpsons Fans – noticed something was not so “right” (Am I funny?) Right hand over the years.
Flanders was spotted bowling, writing, and playing guitar with his right hand, and Ireland Simpsons fans decided to embark on a full comic and reached out to the producers of the broadcast, looking for answers.

Tagging Al Jean, who has written for the show since 1989, and who has been a permanent show-runner since 2001, the fan account wrote: “@AlJean, explain yourself”, along with several photos of Ned’s work who frowns.
So what is going on here?
Is ‘Saint Flanders’ actually a double-edged liar having posed for almost 30 years as a proud southpaw, or was it just a case of forgetful animation?
Fortunately, Al Jean himself made contact to provide the answer.
.@The simpsons a right-hander will definitely be fired for these blunders

“A right-hander will be permanently fired for these blunders,” he wrote in response – confirming that it was the fault of the show’s creators, not Ned himself.
Thank god, eh stable Neddy?
Anyway, if you are a Simpsons fan follow Ireland Simpsons Fans, you won’t regret it!
