Marge Simpson Goes Head-To-Head With Queen
Cartoon matriarch MARGE SIMPSON will deliver a Christmas speech to the British public, which will rival monarch QUEEN ELIZABETH II's traditional festive message.
The blue-haired housewife will talk about family harmony from the living room of her clan's Springfield home.
UK TV network CHANNEL FOUR - who have snapped up the rights to screen THE SIMPSONS in Britain - will screen the message at the same time the Queen addresses the nation on other networks.
A source says, "Like the Queen, Marge has big hair, stays calm during problematic times, has a troublesome husband and kids who are hard to control - she's perfect for the alternative speech."
The show's producer AL JEAN adds, "Go up against the Queen? I hope Marge beats her in the ratings."29/09/2004 14:48
