Enjoy your genetically-modified turkey!

Anyone watching the parades? Reminds me of last year's Turkey Day post.

"Moe'N'A Lisa"

Last November I posted the article "Tom Wolfe Is Screaming" that describes the recording session with Michael Chabon, Tom Wolfe and Gore Vidal for the "Moe'N'A Lisa" episode of The Simpsons. The article was accompanied by a preliminary sketch of Tom Wolfe, and you can now see the finished promo card above. The episode is scheduled to air Sunday, November 19. Here's the synopsis.
"After Homer forgets Moe's birthday, Moe's anger inspires Lisa to write about him for her school report. She finds a poetic side to Moe and helps him get published in American Poetry Perspectives. However, when Moe is featured at a literary conference -- where he encounters celebrated authors Gore Vidal, Michael Chabon, Tom Wolfe and Jonathan Franzen, all guest-voicing as themselves -- he takes all the credit despite Lisa's feelings."
