Bart Simpson donates $10 mil to Scientology

    Nancy Cartwright — best known as the voice of Bart Simpson — last year gave the church $10 million to help spread the word of founder L. Ron Hubbard into other galaxies.

    It was all part of Scientology’s Global Salvage effort, which aims to “de-aberrate” Earth — meaning to rid mankind of psychology ills and other “aberrant” behavior.

    Surprisingly, Nancy, 50, forked over twice as much as the Scientology’s most prominent member, Tom Cruise, who only gave $5 million in an installment plan.

    That's because she's better than Tom Cruise in almost every step of the way. He's still a weird, little fucker.

    I imagined she'd have done well, but a spare $10 mil? Eat my shorts.

    I can think of a few more charities worthy of her money, like the Rumple Fund.

    Or The Human Fund: "Money for people"

    That had a certain understated stupidity to it.

    This is ripe for parody on The Simpsons, don't you think?

    I wonder if she told church leaders to "Don't have a cow, man" when she announced she'd be doing this.
