In the Simpson's cartoons, Homer is paid off to kill some famous celebrities. In the cartoon, you see Homer kill George Clooney, Prince and Neil Armstrong (who has been killed in other cartoons as well). Notice the date the episode debuted, November 2, 2008. This date stands out largely for two reasons
Prince died on April 21, 2016, the 112th day of the year. The date November 2, or 11/2, is a lot like 112. Also, it was a date with '41' numerology, just like the date prince died.
11/2/2008 = 11+2+20+08 = 41
4/21/16 = 4+21+16 = 41
The gematria of the episode is also interesting, 'Treehouse of Horror XIX'.
Notice the number sequence, 124. That reminds of the date 4/21, written in reverse.
The word 'treehouse' also has gematria of '44', the kill number, reminding of how Prince died on the 44th Parallel North.
I wonder how far away the George Clooney headlines are...
The Simpson's episode debuted 2,727 days before Prince's death.
