Just As I Thought

Forget Selma

According to Queer Day, the long and eagerly awaited “coming out” of a Simpsons character involves Patty, Marge’s sister.

Homer: Which one’s Selma, again?
Marge: She’s the one who likes Police Academy movies and Hummel figurines, and walking through the park on clear autumn days.
Homer: Oh, yeah yeah yeah. But I thought she was the one that didn’t like to be … you know … touched.
Marge: It’s Patty who chose a life of celibacy. Selma simply had celibacy thrust upon her.

For those of you who can’t tell them apart, Patty is the one who had a short-lived affair with Principal Skinner. She wears pink, while Selma wears blue. Let the wild conspiratorial speculation on their clothing choices begin!
