‘Adamson’: The original Homer Simpson from 1949?

Meet Adamson - a dead ringer for Homer Simpson, as published in Icelandic paper Fálkinn in July 1949.

Adamson was created by Swedish cartoonist Oscar Jacobsson, whose work was published successfully around the world. In America Adamson was known as Silent Sam, and had a considerable following. Was Adamson a possible influence on the look of Matt Groening’s Homer Simpson?

Official Vatican newspaper has declared that Homer Simpson is a Catholic in good standing

I was born into Catholicism. Can I be un-baptised? These fuckers are nuts.

The official Vatican newspaper has declared that beer-swilling, doughnut-loving Homer Simpson and son Bart are Catholics — and what’s more, it says that parents should not be afraid to let their children watch “the adventures of the little guys in yellow.”
“Few people know it, and he does everything to hide it. But it’s true: Homer J. Simpson is Catholic,” the Osservatore Romano newspaper said in an article on Sunday headlined “Homer and Bart are Catholics.”

If Jesus were alive he’d probably find this hysterical…and pathetic.
