Even before the death of ace golfer Arnold Palmer, “The Simpsons” have reportedly predicted it already.
Which particular scene of the animated series did such prediction appear?
On Monday, the well-decorated professional golfer died at the age of 87 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, something which his family and friends must have known about even before it happened if they listened to “The Simpsons.”
According to Independent UK, the prediction about Arnold Palmer’s death came few hours before the news broke. In the said episode of the Fox animated series, Homer was heard mentioning the golfer’s name, but in past tense.
“I’m going to fill a Super Soaker full of lemonade, Karl’s going to fill one with iced tea and we’re going to Arnold Palmer Lenny when he walks in!” he told Marge, adding that “Arnold Palmer was a golfer and he made up this drink where it’s not a full glass of lemonade or a full glass of iced tea.”
Amid the speculation that Arnold Palmer’s death was predicted by “The Simpsons,” the report noted that it was not the first time that the show turned out right for its so-called predictions.

In the past, Homer and Marge talked about Donald Trump’s presidential bid and the horse meat scandal.
Following the golf legend’s demise, several personalities in the world of golf shared their sympathies and grief for the man who made the sport extra popular, Golf Week reported.
“We loved him with a mythic American joy,” the late golfer’s biographer James Dodson said.
He also hinted that the death of Arnold Palmer marks the loss of the “defining figure in golf.”
“I used to hear cheers go up from the crowd around Palmer,” fellow professional golfer Lee Trevino said. “And I never knew whether he’d made a birdie or just hitched up his pants.”
Being called “The King,” it appears that Arnold Palmer will continue to have that nick even after his death.
