Homer Simpson's Life Lessons

Found this list of Homer Simpson's life lessons and thought I'd pass my favorites along.

"Kids are like monkeys, only louder."

"When someone tells you your butt is on fire, you should take them at their word. "

"You can have many different jobs and still be lazy."

"You may think it's easier to de-ice your windshield with a flamethrower, but there are repercussions. Serious repercussions."

"There are some things that just aren't meant to be eaten. "

"The intelligent man wins his battles with pointed words. I'm sorry -- I meant sticks. Pointed sticks. "

"There are way too many numbers. The world would be a better place if we lost half of them -- starting with 8. I've always hated 8. "

"When you borrow something from your neighbor, always do it under the cover of darkness."

"My favorite color is chocolate."

I can't believe they left out, "Donuts, is there anything they can't do"

If you're really bored you can read life lessons from Pamela Anderson, Ozzy Osbourne, Tom Petty andHeather Locklear.

Will these words of "wisdom" rank up there with the likes of Socrates, Plato, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, William Shakespeare, et.al.? Or will *they* look at such writings and wonder what kind of society paid attention to cartoon characters and rock musicians?

Glancing over these was something to do on a hot, humid afternoon though....

Its funny you should mention future generations. I've often wondered just how wrong we are about events and places in the past.

Ummmmmmmmm, dougnuts!

I agree with you both about how the future will view us and I am most certain that we have misinterpreted many aspects of ancient history.
