Yesterday was a tribute to the great Oscar Wilde. Today, I have another tribute to someone known for their down-to-earth sensibility and completely relatable manner. Of course, I'm talking about Homer Simpson. As a child, I was banned from watching "The Simpsons." I'm not entirely sure why I wasn't routinely beaten up for that in school, but I wasn't. However, even I knew who they were and their famous witticisms. Especially Homer. Homerisms brings out the best of him.
While some kids decided to take up dangerous habits to fulfill their teenage rebellion quota, I would watch "The Simpsons." While my mom would throw a fit as if I had downed a six-pack, I knew deep-down that it wasn't nearly as bad as she thought it was. How else was I supposed to vicariously learn irresponsibility? For anyone else who isn't free to experience "The Simpsons," there's an app of wisdom and entertainment available.
Just tap on the arrows to move through the quotes, or you can select the "Overview" feature and scroll through them on the roller. You can also go into the settings and change the sound effects that play when you change between sayings.
Homerisms is an iPhone app available in the App Store for the awesome price of FREE.
