I stopped watching The Simpsons on FOX about, oh, I don’t know, 10 or so years ago. I just stopped watching it one day, and realized I didn’t miss it all that much. Of course, South Park coming along to take up the slack probably helped, and I just didn’t realize I was swapping one favorite animated show for another. All that is to say that Marge Simpson is the surprise cover girl of Playboy’s November issue.
Why Marge? Says Scott Flanders (I shit you not, I’m not making that name up), the recently-hired chief executive of Playboy Enterprises:
“It had never been done, and we thought it would be kind of hip, cool and unusual.”
Hey, Scott, you know why it’s never been done before? Probably cause it’s kinda hard to crank one out to a yellow animated chick with blue hair. I’m just sayin’.
The issue, due out in brown paper bags everywhere October 16, will include the cover (below), an article called “The Devil in Marge Simpson”, and a three-page picture spread. I’ll leave it to your imagination what that three-page picture spread will include.
