In recent years, the animated series has become known for its uncanny ability to seem to divine what will happen in the future.

In the 2013 episode “A Test Before Trying,” Mr. Burns announces that energy bills will increase.

To decide how much your electric bill will go up, I assembled a team of respected economists and gave them plausible rate hike percentages,” he says.

“Now we will apply unconstrained free market principles to arrive at a number. Now release the dogs.”

The economists are then chased by dogs, with one catching the person with a 17 percent sign on their back.

“And there you have it, folks. Rates will increase by a healthy 17 percent,” concludes Mr. Burns.

A TikTok user pointed out that the Office for National Statistics said that after raising the energy price cap last October, “consumer prices for gas and electricity rose by 17.1% and 8.7%, respectively.”
