Selma Bouvier

Selma Bouvier (voiced by Julie Kavner) is a fictional character on the television cartoon The Simpsons. Selma is one of Marge's two cynical chain-smoking sisters (the other is Patty), who works at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and has a strong dislike for Homer. Her full name has evolved into Selma Bouvier Terwilliger Hutz McClure, after marriages to Sideshow Bob, Lionel Hutz, and Troy McClure.

It is not easy to distinguish the twins from each other. This table should do the trick:

Necklace pearls oval circular
Earrings s-shaped triangular
Hair divided undivided

According to Marge, Patty chose a life of celibacy, while Selma had celibacy thrust upon her.

Like her twin sister Patty, Selma is an avid (and sometimes maniacal) fan of the eighties TV series MacGyver.

Selma once took the Simpson children on a disastrous trip to the Duff Gardens theme park, where Bart manhandled several animatronic characters and Lisa went on a psychedelic trip after ingesting "water" from a boat ride. Selma cares for her deceased aunt's iguana Jub-Jub.
