The Simpsons: 5 Reasons Why Homer Simpson Is Secretly Australian

5. He Loves His Beer

The Simpsons Homer Beer

Now, my apologies for any Germans that may take offence at anything I may say in this part of my argument but if Australians are famous for anything around the world, it's for our love of beer. The amber fluid is a fundamental part of our culture heritage (whether people like it or not) and has a prominent history on this, our great southern land. And as my childhood was spent growing up within the confines of pub situated in the "outback" of Australia I have witnessed both the good and the bad that has come with what is essentially our national pastime. That brings us to Homer. Now it is common knowledge throughout the world to anyone that has not been living under a rock for the past two decades is that "Homer no function beer well without." Initially his whole way of life could actually be described by the man himself in a quick sentence. "I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my homosexuals flaming!" And when faced with the prospect of living without his beloved beverage his alternative could be describe as....imaginative, to say the least. "Basically, we become a family of traveling acrobats." Let's not forget the now famous musical homage to the infamous refreshment. Now I can tell you from first hand experience that this not only represent in full the Australians love for their beer but in every aspect of every famous quote that Homer has ever muttered on the subject is our doctorate on the matter. And if there was any doubt, let me give you a personal opinion that he himself has said. "You must love this country more than I love a cold beer on a hot Christmas morning." Now although that may seem like an ironic gag to you Americans, that to us is EXACTLY the definition of what we love about AND experience at every Xmas. Homer in one, off-handed remark described the Australian Xmas experience in full detail. Now if that doesn't get Donald Trump jumping off his rocker and screaming for Homers birth certificate I honestly don't know what will (oh wait). You can't deny the validity of the argument that I present to you with this one statement alone. Not only in my eyes does this prove his true ethnicity but explains many mannerisms that he exhibits that seem strangely Un-American. Take for instance my next point....

Passions in life: Movies, Music and Wrestling....My childhood was spent growing up in the "Outback" of Australia (I'm a little bit country) and my adulthood resided within the city limits (I'm a little bit rock and roll), so you could say that I am the best (or worst) of both worlds. A 6 foot 7 ex wannabe pro wrestler (whose career was cut short due to a busted back, NOT caused by wrestling) & muso who has a precocious cat & a habit of doing the wrong thing but for the right reasons. The story of my life???? All demos, no albums ;)
