Here’s what Reuters had to say:

Marge Simpson — the blue beehived matriarch of America’s most loved dysfunctional family – is Playboy magazine’s November cover, the magazine said on Friday.

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

Playboy said the cover and a three-page picture spread inside was a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the “The Simpsons” and part of a plan to appeal to a younger generation of readers.

Scott Flanders, the recently-hired chief executive of Playboy Enterprises, told the Chicago Sun-Times in an interview that the Marge Simpson cover and centrefold was “somewhat tongue-in-cheek.”

“It had never been done, and we thought it would be kind of hip, cool and unusual,” Flanders told the newspaper. He said the magazine hoped to attract readers in their 20s compared to the average Playboy reader’s age of 35.
