Joseph Fitzgerald O'Malley Fitzpatrick O'Donnell The Edge 'Joe' Quimby, is the long-standing, much-maligned - yet strangely forgivable - Mayor of Springfeld.

Don't assume that his lengthy term of office reflects a spotless career. Quimby once enraged Springfield voters by releasing the nefarious Sideshow Bob from prison - a mistake he paid for when Bob was elected (briefly) as mayor shortly afterwards. He was also the center of a paternity scandal - 27 paternity scandals to be precise - but he cunningly kept the journalists at bay by bribing them with adorable puppies.

Mayor Quimby is not without his talents, however. His uncanny ears can detect the sound of a briefcase opening from several rooms away, while his ability to seduce (or just pay for) nubile young blondes (often several simultaneously) is unparalleled in all the land.

A healthy business relationship with Fat Tony has also had a major part to play in his illustrious career.
