So, this is the market strategy:

Attract younger customers by showing nearly-naked pictures of a cartoon woman for cash, when those people could just as easily get more graphic porn of the same woman for free on the internet (should they, you know, be so inclined.)

Am I missing something here? Is it the sheer novelty factor that's supposed to spur that impulse buying?
Well, it's not the sexual allure of a yellow cartoon character, so yes, i'd say it's the novelty value.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable way to sell magazines to me, it's just a bit of a joke with one of the world's most popular cartoon characters. People do seem to be taking Playboy a little seriously.

Hey, it might be cute if the show did a tie-in episode for this issue, a story wherein Marge (for some reason) decides to pose for Playboy. Kinda like how "Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words" featured a New York Times Sunday crossword with a hidden message from Homer to Lisa (encoded acrostically in the first letters of the clues), and the actual NYT Sunday crossword published the day that episode aired was the exact same one seen in the episode and actually did contain that message.

Well, they had to try really hard to ascertain that women really couldn't get pregnant, anymore...

What's so bad about that? This planet would be far better off without humanity--we are a blight, more devastating to the world around our mutant monkey asses than was the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs. That's not opinion, it's been documented.

Of course, I just had the time of my life orally exploring the nether parts of a very beautiful and very female exotic dancer so I'd just as soon limit the species to non-procreative sex of any kind. But I thought CoM was the feel-good movie of the year till that damned baby showed up.

So, is this evidence of Simpsons jumping the shark, or of Playboy jumping the shark?

Re: Simpson poses nude for Playboy

Are there any sharks The Simpsons haven't already jumped? They haven't just jumped the shark, they've gotten it pregnant, married it, and settled down to raise a family with it.




(Do sharks get pregnant? Well, they are oviparous, but most sharks' eggs do develop and hatch within their bodies, so it's sort of like pregnancy. Besides, it's a metaphorical shark anyway.)

I was just going to mention something along this line, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see the slide this into an episode some where

They then jumped their baby shark/Simpson hybrids.

The baby sharks then got killed by attempting to jump other baby sharks, then got replaced by similar-looking sharks while everyone else pretended nothing ever happened.
