Top Five Homer Simpson Bacon Quotes


Homer J. Simpson is the patriarch of the fictional Simpson family, the focal point of the Matt Groening-created Fox TV show “The Simpsons.”

The show — which also includes Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie in the Simpson family — just aired its 550th episode. It’s marking its silver anniversary season running through Jan. 14, 2015, having debuted on Dec. 17, 1989.

As for Homer (voiced by Dan Castellaneta, with his singing voice from Don Jordan), he’s a safety inspector at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant.

Also, he loves to eat. While his professed favorite foods are donuts (raspberry cream or double-glaze), pork chops and honey roasted peanuts, he has a soft spot for bacon and, of course, Duff beer.

So, we humbly serve up our top five Simpson bacon quotes:
