Marge Simpson Nude Playboy Spread – Really?

If you’re going to replace a real woman on the cover of Playboy with an animated babe, there are so many hotter choices than Marge Simpson! How about Jessica Rabbit – hot! Luanne from King of the Hill isn’t bad and she certainly fits the stereotype of brainless blonds doing nude Playboy spreads. At least they didn’t pick Meg from Family Guy – shudder!

Playboy CEO Scott Flanders said the mag primarily markets to an audience√ā¬†around the average age of 35 and the company is trying to appeal to a younger age range. The funny thing about that is, most of the people we know that watch The Simpsons are well on their way to mid-life crisis age.

The whole Playboy stunt is designed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of The Simpsons hitting the air. Fans may be a bit disappointed though, because reportedly Marge Simpson won’t be revealing if the carpet matches the drapes…
