Spanish Shopkeeper Finds Homer Simpson Euro

By Wyatt Earp | August 9, 2008

I guess it’s worth a lot of D’oh!

MADRID - A one euro coin has turned up in Spain bearing the face of cartoon couch potato Homer Simpson instead of that of the country’s king, a sweetshop owner told Reuters on Friday.

Jose Martinez was counting the cash in his till in the city of Aviles, northern Spain, when he came across the coin where Homer’s bald head, big eyes and big nose had replaced the serious features of King Juan Carlos.

“The coin must have been done by a professional, the work is impressive,” he told Reuters. (H/T - )

To quote the Comic Book Guy: “Greatest work of art . . . EVER!”

    I wonder if King Juan Carlos walks around in his underwear. There is a striking resemblance.

    DPU - Good score! Didn’t know about that.

    RT - He probably loves donuts and Duff Beer, too.
