Put down that toaster and get out of the bathtub, your meaningless existence has been validated with 6 new Simpsons posters. You’ll be pleased to know at least one poster contains enough comedic punch to make you tilt your head back and guffaw; gushing out enough spittle to bathe a small animal. If you’re wondering, I’m talking about the last poster after the jump. Wiener jokes are the only reason I get out of bed. I live for wiener. Hm, that came out wrong.
Getting a little uncomfortable? Good, because a disturbing story in NYDN behind Maggie’s first words, voiced by then 60-year-old Elizabeth Taylor, recounts the 24 takes necessary to de-sexualize the two syllable word, “Dad-dy.”
Groening recalls how Elizabeth Taylor once agreed to play little Maggie saying her first word, “Daddy.”
“We did 24 takes, but they were always too sexual. Finally Liz said, ‘F– you,’ and walked out.”
I always had a nagging suspicion that behind the innocent pacifier sucking was a raging slut. I’m glad Elizabeth Taylor picked up on it too.
The posters after the jump.
