A TV host is blaming Homer Simpson for Britain’s obesity crisis!
Steve Miller, presenter of the show "Fat Families", claims that Homer's love of donuts and beer encourages unhealthy eating habits. Now he's written to the show’s creator, Matt Groening.
"We have a mega issue with obesity and Homer is wobbly and porky. I would have him talking to his family about how cool it is to be healthy and do more activities with his family that promotes movement. I would also hypnotise him to get him to control his weight."
Really Steve? Let us review some facts:
• The show has broadcast 556 episodes, making it the longest-running American sitcom.
• The Simpsons Movie grossed over $527 million.
• The show has earned 31 Primetime Emmy Awards
• Homer's exclamatory catchphrase "D'oh!" has been adopted into the English language
Looks like Homer is doing just fine. Stick to "Fat Families" Steve! (A parody of "Fat Families" for The Simpsons program is probably being written right now!)
