“I’m the king of the world! Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo!” – Homer Simpson
The first and best link we have this week is a fan made poster of Homer’s disastrous attempt to teach Bart a lesson. I cannot recommend it highly enough. After that there are a bunch of other links to great fan made stuff, including Legos and crayons. And after that, we’ve got the play moving to America’s wang, a whole website dedicated to Simpsons tattoos, idiotic donut marketing, and more.

It’s December 1941 in Casablanca. What time is it in Springfield? – As usual, the fading .gifs for the casting images are great, and “Dr. Wolfe as Major Strasser” is an inspired pick. But I don’t think Wiggum is smart enough to be Captain Renault. Rex Banner, maybe?
Milhouse – A fan made Lego Milhouse head. Click this. It even has his little cowlick.
Crayola Mini-Scultures of Bob’s Burgers, Simpsons, Groot, and More – The family carved into crayons. Excellent.

Matt Groening and Lynda Barry: A loving and productive friendship. – Always nice to see them together:
“We disapprove of each other,” Groening said, after he revealed that he’d once asked Barry to marry him. (Her response: “THE HELL!”) She hates his swank Malibu house, and he calls Wisconsin, where she lives, “colder than Scott Walker’s tit.”
Bart Gets Hit By A Car – Season 2 often creeps up on the unsuspecting:
Well, here’s an episode that’s even better than I remembered. It’s sorta like “Simpson & Delilah”; I remembered it being good, but not as good as it actually was.
I barely moved all day the first time I got my hands on the Season 2 DVDs.
