America’s newest sex symbol: Marge Simpson?


marge-pbPlayboy has announced that their cover model for the November issue will be Marge Simpson. Not only will she grace the cover, she’ll also have a two-page centerfold spread. The magazine coyly won’t say how much will be revealed by the blue-haired mother of three. All they’re saying is that is that it will be “very, very racy.”

I’m curious to see how this will be received. This isn’t the first time Playboy has tried to appeal to the younger set, with previous cover featuring female professional wrestlers and G4’s Olivia Munn. Going with a female cartoon character is a little different.

Is America ready for an animated Playboy bunny? It’ll be interesting to see if this is successful for them. We’ll find out when the issue hits newsstands on Oct. 16. “The Simpsons” have been around for 20 years now, it’s nice to see that they still have some new things to show us.

Here and there ...
