....
a) it's fair usage by definition (from Dictionary.com): an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: [i]the rape of the countryside. .........
Cheesebugers and the countryside are all things, not people. Now I know the Simpsons are not real people, but the offence is when the word is wrongly applied to a person or people. I hate it when kids say "We got raped" for example on the XBox360. Horrible.
