The Simpsons vs. First Amendment

This is funny:

Only one in four Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment... but more than half can name at least two members of the cartoon family.

That's not the best part though:

About one in five people thought the right to own a pet was protected.

Here are the results, and yes, I can't do all five off the top of my head either. However, I know the Simpsons and American Idol judges. Sue me.

Hm, let me think. I gues freedom of speech? Freedom of press? Hm. Americans, americans... The right to bear arms? Or is that not a freedom?

Let's see...

The five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment are freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition for redress of grievances.

Yay! Got two, and I'm not even american! Shoulda gotten the religion thing, though. I know more Simpsons characters, though :-)
