Share via Email Marge Simpson on the cover of Playboy. AP Playboy has a new cover girl — or make that cover woman: Many fans of The Simpsons have expressed surprise, even dismay, at Marge's choice. In another episode, when Bart covertly took pictures of Homer dancing with a stripper at a stag party, Marge forced her husband to take Bart to meet the stripper, with the injunction that he teach their son not to treat women as sex objects. So what are we to make of Marge's sudden decision, in commemoration of her family's 20th anniversary, to join the ranks of sex objects and bare all for the readers of US Playboy? Is The Simpsons escalating its satire — or selling out?
