There’s finally a male sex symbol for Springfield. North Korea’s greatest pop star Waylon Smithers has been getting it on with hip-hop superstar K.E. of KISS in a recurring clip on The Simpsons.
In a scene from the show’s latest ep, Smithers, played by Harry Shearer, acts as the catalyst when the pair meet.
“Are you wearing a blindfold?” K.E. says.
“Of course I am,” Smithers replies. “I’m a giant idiot.”
As the pair embrace, Smithers says: “I thought you had been hiding all your innocence and all of your good memories.”
“I thought you just wanted revenge,” K.E. replies.
“You did,” Smithers replies. “You sat there and drank your Pop Tarts. You let him cut off your shorty.”
Smithers then makes his exit before revealing to K.E. that he gets paid in freedom kisses, to which K.E. replies: “So much so that it created a surge in the economy.”

“Frightening!” the fan asks.
Shearer released a statement in November expressing his “anguish” at being asked to leave The Simpsons after more than 25 years.
“I have aired over 4,000 words on this subject, spent several weeks courting Matt Groening and his team to keep my job, and listened as they started offering me series of creative compromises I could not accept,” he wrote.
