Homer Simpson is a cartoon character from the series The Simpsons. He's the father of Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson, and Maggie Simpson, and the husband of Marge Simpson. He lives in Springfield. Although TV says donuts are high in fat, Homer eats a lot of them, which is why he's fat. Of course, all the Duff beer he drinks as he sits on his couch could contribute to his rotund figure, as well.
