In an upcoming Christmas Day special of The Simpsons, Lisa Simpson will cry for Cornish freedom.
Lisa will run around the Simpsons' home in Springfield shouting "Rydhsys rag Kernow lemmyn", which translates as "Free Cornwall Now."
"In an upcoming episode Lisa Simpson briefly takes up the cause of Cornish independence," the e-mail said. "Our hope is to have the character run around the house yelling 'Free Cornwall Now' in Cornish."
Cornwall has remained stubbornly distinct from the rest of the United Kingdom. Nationalists in the county think the area should be accorded the status Wales and Scotland enjoy, having devolved powers if not outright independence.
