Marge Simpson Enjoys Her First Teabagging In HaloS

The twentieth season of Matt Groening's The Simpsons introduces the corpse-desecrating act of "teabagging" to the stalwart Simpsons fan in a not-so-subtle nod to Bungie's Halo 2, complete with mostly accurate Xbox controllers.

That near-accuracy may lead some to speculate that the grinding of one's digital undercarriage on the armored cadaver of a fallen foe is product placement. But the inaccuracies and, we assume, the corporate shying away from publicizing virtual ball-dropping online, would make me think this is just a silly reference.

And such a topical one! I guess we can move the trend marker for "Teabagging in Halo" on the downward trajectory of its lifespan, just to the right of the shark fin. Enjoy the brief clip snippet at Hulu.
