| Fortune Teller
| Location Information
The Fortune Teller is a fortune-telling business located in Ethnictown, an immigrant neighborhood of Springfield. It is owned and operated by the Gypsy.
The Gypsy tells fortunes using a crystal ball, Tarot cards, and other, unspecified means. In addition to the fortune-telling equipment, her shop also has things such as a beaded doorway, shrunken heads, locked chests, a pentagram on the wall, candles on a stand, and all kinds of mysterious-looking books.
The Gypsy runs a very practical, street-smart business and operates under the following principles:
- If you are a police officer, you have to tell the Gypsy of that fact before she will read your fortune. (She will ask.)
- The Gypsy will not accept checks from people she deems to be irresponsible or unreliable (such as Homer Simpson).
- The Gypsy reserves the right to refuse service to people who offend or anger her, Homer again being an example.
- The Gypsy uses technology as well as magic in her business: The sign in her shop window says "Fortune Teller. After hours use automated teller".
The Simpsons patronized the Gypsy's Shop when Marge went in to have her fortune read. Homer arrived moments later and the Gypsy immediately sensed that she shouldn't accept a check from him. Homer offended her by accusing her of being a fraud, and the Gypsy ordered him to leave. When he accidentally trashed her shop (by being freaked out by the doorway beads, knocking over a candle stand, setting himself on fire and thus setting off the sprinklers which soaked everything in the place), the Gypsy put a curse on him.
Homer later returned seeking revenge for being cursed. By then, the Gypsy had finished with making repairs to her shop.
