Unleash Your Yellow with FOX's The Simpsons Poster Contest

An edible Milhouse?

FOX has invited fans of The Simpsons, celebrating its twentieth (yes, twentieth!) anniversary with a fan-based initiative called “Unleash Your Yellow” that runs between now and January 2010.

I'm already completely enchanted by The Simpsons Poster Contest, which has asked fans of everyone's favorite animated family to discover The Simpsons in their everyday life: "Whether it’s a cob of corn that reminds them of Marge, a billowing cloud that looks like Homer or a picket fence that resembles the spikes of Bart’s hair, inspiration can be found anywhere!"

Fans, who must be older than 18, can design and submit posters using their original art, which can also be combined with digital assets that can be found online at thesimpsons.com. The deadline to submit your entries is 11:59 PM ET on March 4th.

But that's not all. The Top Ten finalists, decided by FOX and producers of The Simpsons, will be posted on thesimpsons.com. The winner to be revealed online on April 5th and will receive a trip to Los Angeles to attend The Simpsons 21st season premiere party as well as tickets to “The Simpsons Ride” at Universal Studios Hollywood. Additionally, the winning artwork may be incorporated into the series’ Fall 2009 marketing campaign.

(I'm feeling extremely inspired by that towering cotton candy I saw the other day; it just screams Marge Simpson. But I still can't get that candy Milhouse out of my head. And, well, I'm more than a little curious to see how many people work Ralph into their posters.)

This is a fun idea, although I don't know if I could beat the candy Milhouse. The corn on the cob Marge is hysterical too.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have
