Simpsonized Me

I have to admit, I love the Simpsons. They are not as funny as they once were, but they still have their moments. I have the first 8 seasons on DVD, and went to see The Simpson Movie on opening day. The movie is funny for those of us who enjoy parody and satire.

When the Simpsons first arrived on the scene, I was living near Springfield, IL and a friend of mine was working at the new FOX channel there. The Halloween Parade was going to feature the Simpson characters, although the show was not on the air...other than on the Tracy Ullman Show. Anyway, I was going to get to be Homer, and walk through the parade. Unfortunately, the costumes did not show up on time. D'oh.

Gary Stager, over at The Pulse, has Simpsonized himself (as have millions of us by now). As I prepare to head back to school...and after intentionally taking time away from blogging to think, reflect, and determine what was important to me for the coming educational year...I give you my arrival at Springfield Elementary School.
