You might not realize it, but Homer and Marge Simpson can really turn the sexy on when the cameras go off ... at least according to one artist's imagination.

AleXsandro Palombo put together a series of provocative images of the popular animated couple, riffing off the erotic photography of Helmut Newton.

Who knows how you think up this kind of thing ... but he did.

Marge Simpson Gets Sexy

A seductive, gender-bending Homer steers clear of the donuts and blue jeans in the pics, opting instead for a suave suit and the occasional drag number.

Marge Simpson, meanwhile ditches her favorite green tube dress for a slinkier black number, sometimes preferring to wear little or nothing at all.

The Homer and Marge Simpson nude images are a direct homage to Helmut Newton, a black-and-white photographer known for his erotic elegance.

We're not sure if you'll be turned on, scarred for life or somewhere in between, but this is not something you'll see if you watch The Simpsons online.

Do you even want to see it? That's a tough question, we know. Ponder it now before you proceed and can't erase the naked imagery from your memory.

The Simpsons Season 25 Episode 7 went back to a familiar well this week, as Bart tried to clean up his act and shape up. Been there, done that, right?

Yes, but this time his efforts took place aboard a submarine at least.

Similarly, Krusty experienced financial problems once again, though this time he tried to rectify the situation by licensing his series to foreign markets.

This led to the show skewering of other actual shows that did so, which was vintage Simpsons, and shows you why the show has lasted 25 seasons.

A show known more for laughs than violence is set to take out one of its own.

Executive Producer Al Jean says The Simpsons will celebrate its 25th season at some point in the near future by killing off a long-time character. Who might it be?

"I'll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is," Jean told reporters during a recent conference call.

Hmmm… that does actually narrow down the list by quite a lot.

The Harlem Shake is everywhere these days.

Even The Simpsons! Yup, animated style!

The bizarrely awesome dance-video phenomenon has grown so popular that the Fox hit had to produce its own Harlem Shake video, the "Homer Shake."

Unlike most videos of this meme, there's actually a new soundtrack, with the voice of Homer on "vocals." The Simpsons quotes + Harlem Shake = gold.

Other than that, it's pretty boilerplate.

It starts with a single character (Maggie) feeling the beat of the Baauer club hit, before being joined by many others in various stages of seizures/undress.

What's your favorite Harlem Shake video? Check out just a few of the many, many parodies sweeping the Internets after the jump and tell us!

Still reeling from the 2012 presidential election, C. Montgomery Burns of The Simpsons fame took a few minutes to explain the upcoming Fiscal Cliff this week.

You have to give the tycoon credit for moving on in the wake of Mitt Romney's defeat to bring America up to date on January 1's impending financial calamity.

Unfortunately, that doesn't exactly go as planned either, according to Smithers and his Insta-polls ...

After more than 500 episodes, The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has finally answered an age-old question: Where is Springfield, the anywhere-in-America town where Bart and Lisa have been in elementary school for over two decades?

Oregon.

Groening tells the Smithsonian Magazine that Homer and family call that state home as he once did: "Springfield was named after Springfield, Oregon," he says.

"When I was a kid, the show Father Knows Best took place in the town of Springfield, and I was thrilled because I imagined it was the town next to Portland, my hometown."

"When I grew up, I realized it was just a fictitious name. I also figured out that Springfield was one of the most common names for a city in the U.S."

"In anticipation of the success of the show, I thought, 'This will be cool; everyone will think it's their Springfield.' And they have."

There have been clues dropped here and there, but one of the most easily identified links between fictional Springfield and real Springfield is Homer's job.

A former nuclear power plant was located for years in Rainier, Oregon, north of Portland. Who knew that was the source of so many great Simpsons quotes?

FUN FACT: There are 28 Springfields in the U.S., but that's actually only the fourth-most common town name behind Greenville, Franklin and Clinton!
