'The Simpsons' to Spoof 'The Social Network'

'The Simpsons'Facebook co-creator Mark Zuckerberg has already made a guest appearance on 'The Simpsons,' and now the animated comedy is getting ready to spoof the fictionalized version of his life.

Yes, 'The Simpsons' will take on 'The Social Network,' in an episode due to air in 2012 called -- what else? -- 'The D'oh-cial Network.'

'The Sun' reports that 'The Simpsons' homage to Aaron Sorkin's 2010 movie will see Lisa create a social network site in Springfield but give too much credit to everyone else.

And at least one of the movie's stars will be reprising his role in the Springfield version.

'The Social Network' is based on the founding of social networking site Facebook and the ensuing legal battles between Zuckerberg and the Winklevoss twins. Armie Hammer, who played both Winklevoss brothers in the movie, is believed to have signed on for 'The D'oh-cial Network.'

Acording to 'The Sun,' the episode will feature a homage to 'The Social Network's rowing scene. However, this time the Winklevoss boys will be pitted against against Marge's twin sisters Patty and Selma. We can't wait!

'The Simpsons' Season 23 premieres Sunday Sept. 25 on Fox.
