This COULD be funny. I love it when this show lampoons the publishing industry.

"The Ten-Per-Cent Solution:"

Image
Fox has released an image of Joan Rivers' character from an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.

Rivers guest-stars as Annie Dubinski, Krusty the Clown's agent, in the Sunday, Dec. 4 episode, "The Ten-Per-Cent Solution."

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"Krusty the Clown is stuck in a rut when the television network pulls his show from the air and his talent agency drops him as a client. But when The Simpsons introduce him to seasoned agent Annie (Rivers), they are surprised to learn that Annie was Krusty's very first agent. Despite their rocky relationship, Annie is convinced to re-sign Krusty and craft his career comeback. But when Krusty's retro comedy show reboot is deemed a critical success, Krusty must decide to stay with his agent or side with the network executives."

I draw too, dammit!

Another guest star playing an actual character and not just herself. Well done Simpsons writers, you get points for that! No, wait, let's try positive reinforcement...have a chocolate treat!
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

This could be truly delightful; Rivers does well sending herself up, which is just what this role might entail.
