Brian O'Reilly

THE SIMPSONS' nuclear plant owner Mr Burns has become the latest billionaire to endorse republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney in a YouTube video.

During the 2 minute long video Burns calls out one of his famous hounds, and in a scene echoing Paul the Octopus’ famed World Cup selection, tells the dog to pick a candidate based on two plates of food.

On one plate is a stake, or ‘Meat Romney’ – while on the other plate are some withered vegetables Burns said were grown in First Lady Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden, representing ‘Broccoli Obama’.

The video has got almost 300,000 views since it was uploaded yesterday.
