The Lessons of Chief Wiggum

“Um, I’m fine. Now, Lisa, when you’re walking down the side of the road, always wanna be sure to go with traffic, okay? Well…is that with traffic, or against traffic? It’s with traffic. With traffic. Anyway, goodnight.” -Chief Clancy Wiggum 

I’d like to thank Chief Wiggum, Matt Groening & the rest of the writers of that Simpsons episode. I reference pop culture on a fairly regular basis, however this one is a little more special to my life.

Throughout my adolescence this Simpsons moment thoroughly confused me to which side of the road I was supposed to run on – and to an extension what side to ride a bicycle. The chief of police on a cartoon show said it; 11 year old me assumed it was legit.
