Yoko Ono references ‘The Simpsons” joke about her in her new exhibition

A new piece on display in Reykjavik is titled 'A single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man's hat'.

Yoko Ono honours a joke made about her on The Simpsons in a new art exhibition.

In the season five episode ‘Homer’s Barbershop Quartet’, an affectionate parody of The Beatles’ story, Homer’s friend Barney enjoys a brief romance with a Japanese conceptual artist who is clearly modelled on Ono.

When the Ono character pops into Mo’s Bar for a drink, she orders “a single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man’s hat”. Mo duly obliges her.

As Twitter user @thefutureheart points out, this is the exact title and content of a new piece on display at Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland.

The piece was created by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson for an exhibition which Ono, who presumably sees the funny side, has curated for the museum. Titled YOKO ONO: ONE MORE STORY, the exhibition runs until February 5.

Meanwhile, three classic albums by Yoko Ono are due to be reissued on November 11. All three feature her late husband John Lennon.

The albums all include songs not featured on the original versions and mark the start of a full reissue campaign for Ono, who received NME’s Inspiration prize at the NME Awards in February at Brixton O2 Academy.
