I don’t know about you guys, but I understand the votes for Mr.Simpson, since clearly he does love that Marge somethin’ awful. As forMariah, let’s be honest: The Emancipation of Mimi is such asmash that she can pretty much eat wherever and however she pleases.The news about poor, adorable Lucille just makes me sad, and I can onlygive props to Boitano for being such a good sport about his image. Thatleaves me with option A., a musical mash-up that most likely didn’t getvetted by the church’s P.R. department, and one that I’m suspectingprobably won’t ever see the light of day.
