When Portlandia draws its dreamily rendered portrait of Portland, Oregon, the show strives for accuracy and authenticity. Over the last two laugh-filled seasons, the show has covered many subjects near and dear to the hearts of Portlandians everywhere. Things like recycling, brunch etiquette, river safety, eco-consciousness and child rearing. And, of course, Portlandia believes in inclusiveness (except for DJs, of course), which is why in this new clip from the upcoming third season of everyone’s favorite sketch comedy show, we find them broaching a slightly delicate subject, to which we can all relate. Specifically, vagina pillows. Would a portrait of Portlandia be complete without at least one reference to vagina pillows? Well apparently not, according to the show’s stars and creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein who enlisted the help of Saturday Night Live’s Bobby Moynihan to help bring attention to the important subject.

Watch this clip from Portlandia season three and be sure to tune in to Winter in Portlandia on Friday, Dec. 14 at 10:30/9:30C. The new season starts Friday, Jan. 4 at 10/9c:

Portlandia is heading to The Simpsons on Sunday

Portlandia is invading The Simpsons. Yep, Springfield is colliding with Portland in an episode titled “The Day the Earth Stood Cool,” which airs this Sunday, December 9 at 8pm on FOX. In the episode, Portlandia’s stars and creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein guest star as hip parents who move in next door to The Simpsons and introduce the family to the wonderful world of cool parenting, which they use to raise their child T-Rex, played by Patton Oswalt.

Fred plays Terrence, who runs a doughnut shop that was clearly inspired by Portland’s famous Voodoo Donuts. Since Homer has a built-in doughnut radar, soon enough he befriends Terrence and Bart becomes buddies with T-Rex. Carrie plays Emily, a mom with strong beliefs about natural parenting, including breastfeeding. This makes Marge feel bad about her choice to bottlefeed Maggie. (GASP!)

Adding to the show’s cool factor, The Decemberists are also making an appearance and, in fact, composed original music just for the episode. (Portlandia fans may recognize lead singer Colin Meloy from that time he tried to check into The Deuce.)

We’ll see you in Springfield!

On the season finale of Portlandia, we saw the show’s co-creators Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) and Carrie Brownstein (Wild Flag, Sleater-Kinney) star as some of the series most beloved characters including their alter-egos Fred and Carrie waiting for the Mayor (Kyle Maclachlan) and extremely eco-conscious couple Peter and Nance and a bunch of our other favorite Portlandia residents waiting in line for the city’s most popular brunch spot and its world famous marionberry pancakes. The episode also featured a memorable appearance by Tim Robbins, a guest turn by Ed Begley, Jr. as a beleaguered diner owner, and a brilliant performance by Toni and Candace who did not appreciate the brunch line blocking their entrance. That’s what we saw when we watched the episode. And that’s what you can see now that we’ve put Brunch Village into our online streaming forum, the aptly named Stream Room.

So watch this clip starring Tim Robbins, then head to the Stream Room to watch the full episode of Portlandia’s “Brunch Village”:
