Fox Entertainment’s announcement Wednesday that it has hired Lisa Simpson to oversee its talent relations would probably make a great episode of “The Simpsons” ― only it’s real.

An actual woman named Lisa Simpson is now a senior vice president at the place where cartoon Lisa Simpson ― a woke feminist, environmentalist and saxophonist who’s 8 years old ― has wielded plenty of clout for decades.

Some media outlets played the news straight, but people on Twitter had jokes.
