Sup Travellers?! Are you a fan of "The Simpsons"? Well my guess is that you probably are, because it is one of the best television shows of all time next to "Friends". Anyway, just in case you didn't know, Marge Simpson, the wife of Homer Simpson is dead at 94. I'm dead serious.



According to reports from Oregon Live, Margaret Ruth Groening died last month at the age of 94. She was the inspiration for the character Marge Simpson. She was married to Homer and had two daughters named Lisa and Maggie, plus a son named Matt, of Simpsons fame. Margaret Groening was the inspiration for Marge Simpson, and here's a quote from her obituary about why she chose Homer Groening for her husband: "He made her laugh the most." Groening also had a third daughter, Patty, and a second son, Mark.

Groening never actually went by "Marge," the Oregonian notes, but many equated her with the TV mom nonetheless. As one commenter wrote to Matt in the online obituary guest book, "Your mom became everyone's mom." The Simpsons creator has said more than once that the characters were named after his family; he even gave one character, Chief Wiggum, his mom's maiden name.

RIP Marge Simpson. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
