    A tidbit from our local news said the announcement was made at Comic-Con. Didn't see this with a search, so here you go...

    Let the speculation begin - my bet: Lenny

    Probably something lame like Milhouse.

    Lisa is the one that makes the most sense to me, but it'll probably be someone really random. I'm betting on Moe.

    I think it's gonna be both Simpsons sisters:
    Ashlee and Jessica

    It would make the most sense if it was Smithers, since they've already established him as being gay.

    It would also be the most obvious if it was smithers...

    now Lisa, that would be a surprise.

    Nice T.F. there, Morgan [​IMG]

    The National Post was mentioning a marriage, but we haven't seen Smithers with a "significant other", although Lenny and Carl are usually always together, and Lenny is definitely fond of Carl, thus my speculation.

    Skinner would also make sense.

    It doesn't really even matter, since the show's not always consistant. Just because you'd GUESS someone... doesn't really mean that's even who they're considering.

    It could be Duff man, or the bumblebee guy for all the world knows.

    It will either be Lenny or Carl.

    Lisa - had a crush on a boy in one episode. (can't remember who)
    Patty and Selma - like Richard Dean Anderson.
    Moe - dated some girl (can't remember who)
    Milhouse - likes Lisa to much
    Ralph - I'm not to sure about him. I knew he liked Lisa in one ep but it didn't go very far.
    Milhouse's mom - likes to many guys
    Milhouse's dad - I not sure about him to.
    Willie - Not sure
    Skinner - Likes Edna
    Apu - Married?
    Smithers - way to obvious
    Burns - has a son
    The Doctor - I think he's married
    Professor Frink - Not sure about him

    Anybody else? I can't remember all of their names.

    Smithers mentioned a wife in an early episode (but she could be like Corky's unseen wife in Waiting for Guffman?).

    All of which means nothing. Lots of homosexual persons have dated and had crushes on the opposite sex, some even marry and have children. Doesn't mean they can't get sick of living the lie after awhile.

    I read on another message board that either Selma or Patty was in a "staying in the closet" float in a gay pride parade in one of the episodes, along with Smithers. They were not shown except for their sleeves and voices. So maybe one of the sisters...

    All this speculation is so pointless. Its going to be Smithers whether you think its too obvious or not.

    Maybe it will be Rev. Lovejoy and Ralph Wiggums?
