As a white skinhead, it’s no surprise that Homer Simpson would be into MMA. What’s surprising is that The Simpsons will be devoting an entire episode to the sport this Sunday (8/7c). Is it a desperate attempt by the 21-year-old series to generate interest among young males, most of whom moved on to Family Guy a long time ago? Quite possibly! But hey, score another one for the mainstream acceptance of cage-fighting. TV.com has the synopsis of this Sunday’s episode, which is titled “The Great Wife Hope”:
Believe it or not, that’s exactly how Lina Kvokov got booked to fight Kim Couture last year. No word yet if the promoter will be a thinly-veiled Dana White-parody, but FiveOuncesofPain hears that Dancing With the Stars‘s Chuck Liddell will make a cameo in the episode, hopefully to tell Marge that she’s an killjoy idiot who should find something else to protest, before having sex with her in a nightclub bathroom.
So do any of you still watch this show? Is Maggie talking yet? Did Burns and Smithers ever consummate their relationship?
