'The Simpsons' Plays on 'Breaking Bad' in Couch Gag
Marge becomes a cupcake baron as Springfield craves the blue stuff

This Sunday's episode of The Simpsons will open with a spot-on tribute to Breaking Bad, but Springfield isn't hit with a meth affliction. Instead, Marge becomes a cupcake baron, cooking the blue stuff in her kitchen before selling it at bake sales and sending off Bart with stuffed suitcases ready for slinging, all to the tune of "Crystal Blue Persuasion" by Tommy James and the Shondells.

Sequel to 'Simpsons' Movie Unlikely Anytime Soon, Creator Says

But who would watch such a show? No spoilers, but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Simpsons aren't the only ones who like to relax on the couch at the end of a tough day. The second half of the fifth and final season of Breaking Bad resumes this summer on AMC.
