Simpsonized for your pleasure

Mark as himself and as a Simpsons characterOkay, this is more of a game about pleasuring yourself, with the help of the Simpsons. You can go upload a photo of yourself, and the gizmo will magically turn you into a Simpsons character.

Just in case you’re wondering how accurate this thingy is, here is my own photo and the Simpsonized version. The only non-gizmo Photoshopping I did was to my shirt, to make it look more like a mock turtleneck.

Of course, this is how I actually think I would look if I was a Simpsons character. You can make your avatar here.

(Like you hadn’t already found all this stuff on your own, but just in case …)

The movie is good fun, though it lacks some of the bite of the earlier seasons. The first time I ever saw the Simpsons, I didn’t even experience it in English and I still became a fan. I was living in Prague, and my brother came for a visit and we’d gone for a hiking holiday in the Beskedy Mountains. We were staying at a little “guest house” there (actually, I think they might have scouted it as the setting for Hostel II), but they had a satellite dish, and a TV. (And very few dismemberments.)

The locals were all laughing at the cartoon, and I said, “I wonder what that is?”

“You’ve never watched the Simpsons?” my brother asked, incredulous. (Actually, I’m not sure how I’d missed it all those years.)

So, he translated, even though he didn’t speak a word of Czech. He’d seen the episode — the one where Homer saves Bart from trying to jump the canyon on his skateboard and ends up going over himself: Bart the Daredevil. [wiki] (Incidentally, Matt Groening once said this episode was his favorite episode.)

“I’m going to make it! I’m going to make it! This is the greatest thrill of my life, I’m king of the world! Woo! Wooo! I se– ahhhhoooooooooooowwwww!”

Hilarious. Even with my brother doing the voice work, not Dan Castellaneta. [clip here at YouTube.]
