Marge Simpson is new Playboy cover girl



The Juice*, of all media collectives, knows print is a bit wayward in its strategies lately, but the cover girl of the latest issue of Playboy is just plain ol' shocking: Marge Simpson. can someone please dial The Hoff's doctor?

The skin mag's November installment, hitting the stands on Oct. 16, features the cartoon mom, although there (thankfully) will not be any full-frontal shenanigans, the AP reports. No, they're only offering three pages of "implied nudity" in The Simpsons mother's photo spread. That might be even worse.

It will be the first time the mag has used a cartoon character on its cover -- a shocking development to those who remember Jessica Rabbit. New CEO Scott Flanders (we're not making that up) says the idea is to attract readers in their 20s, since their audience averages 35. Because putting cartoon characters that 35-year-olds grew up with is the solution to that.
