Having trouble getting your head round the ins and outs of America's 'fiscal cliff'? Or maybe you're too busy worrying about our own dear Chancellor's Autumn Statement to give a monkey's about the financial woes of other nations?

Either way, help is at hand from an unlikely source - Mr Burns from 'The Simpsons' - who's kindly taken time out from his busy schedule to explain the fiscal cliff in terms we can all understand. (A hint? It helps to think of the economy as a car with a rich man as the driver.)

If you're a 'Simpsons' fan - and frankly, who isn't? - you may also be interested to see whether they made it into our Top 20 sitcom families...
