Kim Kardashian, Simpsonised

aleXsando Palombo

Sometimes art is meant to shock and titillate.

And sometimes...it deflates.

Artist aleXsandro Palombo, known for his Simpson-izations of Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kate Middleton and other culturally relevant types, has of course given the Springfield treatment (he is unafilliated with the show) to Kim's controversial Paper magazine cover shoot.

Perhaps his work was already in the can by the time yesterday's full-frontal extravaganza hit the Internet, but Palombo stuck to what was in, er, hindsight the much more family-friendly photos in which Kim bared her unbelievably round butt and balanced a champagne glass on her tush.

Titled "Iconic Booty Simpsonized," the pics of course capture the essence of Simpsons-style art, and the face is just like the one Polombo has given to past characterizations of Kim and Kanye, having also interpreted her famous post-baby bod swimsuit selfie and their wedding-themed Vogue cover shoot.

But we have to say...the ass is a little small.

Kim's Paper cover shocked because of the eye-popping contrast between her bodacious booty and teeny-tiny waist and this looks almost like--well, we can't say average proportions. But alas, Kim's Simpsons butt is disappointingly small.

If ever there was a time to exaggerate or go all Adult Swim, for-mature-audiences-only on a cartoon likeness, this was the time!

Then again, at least Marge Simpson, Rev. Lovejoy's wife and Millhouse's mom don't have that much to gossip about in this case—their butts probably look fairly similar.
