MY BIG FAT GAY SIMPSONS
So, word's out by now that this year's season of the The Simpsons will feature the "coming out" of one of its beloved characters, in an episode centering on gay marriage. The question, posed to thousands of geeks everywhere at ComicCon (a major conference of comic book/sci fi fans--think that classic SNL sketch where William Shatner tells the fans to "Get a life!"), is, which character will it be?
This article calculates the odds. I think they're right. Because we automatically think "Smithers," means it's probably not Smithers.
IMHO? I'd love to see Flanders come out of his Bible-thumping closet. It would be a real conflict for Homer's favorite neighbor. Another possibility with California gubernatorial ramifications? McBain.
(I know this is going to be another popular discussion, a la the Harry Potter debate...can I bust through the glass ceiling of the whopping 13 comments that has received? Time will tell, as the number of visitors on my webcounter continues to go up and the number of comments on my posts continues to go down...)
