The Simpsons stole my plot!

The Simpsons episode tonight — “Million Dollar Maybe — uses the same basic plot device as my young adult, self-published novel My $100 Million Secret: Homer wins the lottery but can’t tell Marge because he bought the ticket when he should have been at an event with her. In mine, Jake wins the lottery but can’t tell his parents because they’re morally opposed to it. In the Simpsons, hilarious events ensue. In mine, a young lad tries to do right and non-hilarious events ensue.

Speaking of ensuing, someone call a lawyer!
