Come Out, Come Out, Whoever You Are...
Simpsons ties knot with gay marriage. The feverish public debate in the US over gay marriages is to be played out in a forthcoming episode of The Simpsons, it emerged today. The show's producers have revealed that the cartoon classic will feature an episode in which gay marriage is legalised in Springfield. Producer Al Jean said, "We have a show where, to raise money, Springfield legalises gay marriage. Homer becomes a minister by going on the internet and filling out a form. A long time character comes out of the closet, but I'm not saying who."
So who will it be? Smithers? Carl and Lenny? Moe? Comic Book Guy?
