Hello all,

D'oh! Marge makes cover of Playboy

Marge Simpson is the first cartoon character to appear on the cover of the famed men's publication. (AFP/Playboy)

Marge Simpson, the blue beehived matriarch of America's most loved dysfunctional family, is Playboy magazine's November cover.

Simpson, tastefully concealing her assets behind a signature Playboy Bunny chair, is the first cartoon character to front the glossy adult magazine, joining the ranks of sex symbols like Marilyn Monroe and Cindy Crawford.

Playboy said the cover celebrates the 20th anniversary of the The Simpsons.

Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie have already been honoured this year with a set of US postal stamps.
The magazine promises a story inside called The Devil in Marge Simpson and another three pages of pictures.
The Simpsons debuted in December 1989 with a Christmas-themed episode called Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire.
It has won 24 Emmys and was renewed by Fox television earlier this year for two more seasons.

The Simpsons began its 21st season last month, putting it on track to become the longest-running prime-time series on US television.

Right on! There is just something about Marge. Homer definitely out kicked his coverage.

Sure, why not? All the other women in Playboy are cartoonish caricatures of women too. Marge is in familiar surroundings.
