I heard on the news that the TomTom GPS system has added Marge Simpson’s voice as an option. Again this is one of those that just makes me smile to think about.
I’ve watched The Simpsons for a long time, but one of my favorite things about it is the way it creates a bridge between a wide variety of people. People who might not think they have anything in common can smile together over a Simpsons reference. They’re a fixture and a reflection of so much in American culture that in some ways Marge is already telling us where we’re going, so it’s only fitting to have her voice on a GPS.
