KBSoA: A Mildly Clever Homer Clock

Homer Clock

I am opposed to most Simpsons merchandise for a number of reason, it tends to be crappy, it tends to be overpriced, it supports the continued existence of Zombie Simpsons.  However, they do occasionally come up with something that is at least a little bit funny.  Behold the Homer clock to the left.  As the clock ticks Homer alternately raises (and eye fucks) either the donut or the beer. 

The photo certainly makes it look like a cheap plastic piece of crap, and the price of $40 seems awfully steep.  But I’ve got to admit, it is at least a decent use of the character. 

Interestingly enough, nowhere at that link does it state whether the clock is battery operated or whether it plugs into the wall.  I don’t buy a lot of clocks, but were I in the market for one I imagine that “How is it powered?” is one of the questions I would ask.  The lack of that kind of basic product information on a page that’s going for an order says a lot about the kind of people who buy this stuff.  They don’t care how (or maybe even if) it works, they just want to have it because it looks like Homer. 

One presumes that, if it does plug into the wall, it gets incredibly hot if you leave it plugged in.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
