Marge Simpson Poses for Playboy

Read it in the Sun Herald last weekend so it must be true – in the Simpsons' 20th anniversary year Marge Simpson has posed for US Playboy magazine on both the cover and in the centrefold with an accompanying interview entitled "The Devil in Marge Simpson". Hilarious but sort of upsetting at the same time as Marge (along with Lisa) seem to be the only Simpsons with a little bit of commonsense. Don't know whether a nude spread establishes her as an independent woman with a naughty streak or whether it will complete ruin her reputation and street cred. How can we talk about her in this way? Well, the Simpsons are as real to us as Dame Edna Everage whose purple hair is as famous as Marge's blue bouffant. The magazine hits newsstands on 16 October 2009.
