Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Gets a Simpsons Cameo
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg is finally going to show Jeff Bezos who's boss and play himself as a guest voice on The Simpsons. In the episode, Lisa and Nelson go to a convention for entrepreneurs after she agrees to fund his bike business, and (possible spoiler alert!) Zuckerberg reminds the kids "just how many famous billionaires like himself have dropped out of school."
The episode is said to air in October, so if you're into that sort of thing, you have plenty of time to figure out how to set your DVR. Also in Zuckerberg news, the site reached the 500 million user mark this week -- which he discussed in an interview with Diane Sawyer in which he did not, ostensibly, pee his pants -- and is dealing with a lawsuit in which a designer says Zuckerberg offered him part ownership of the company in exchange for work "in the early days." And that's enough Zuckerbergs for one post.
