Earlier this month, we wrote about Duke 2L Andrew Blumberg. He scored an appearance on the Food Network Challenge because he is a “Simpsons superfan.”
He was teamed up with a professional cake designer to advise her on making a Bart Simpson cake that was faithful to the original character. Blumberg was an excellent cake consigliere; his partner won the challenge. (We now have photos of their winning creation, after the jump.)
According to Duke Law News, Blumberg’s superfandom is rooted in more than just watching tons of Simpsons episodes. He also worked on a project incorporating Simpsons clips into a lesson on contracts law.
We’ve found out that Blumberg’s Simpsons obsession goes even further. Guess which firm he’s summering with? Punchline, after the jump.
We heard from a tipster that Blumberg would be a summer associate at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. Blumberg confirmed this via Facebook message:
I am indeed summering with Simpson Thacher, and the irony is not lost on me .
Blumberg also sent along photos of the cake that netted his partner the $10,000 grand prize.
