My Simpsons family

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Burger King-sponsored “Simpsonize Me” site. Well, I never got that to work, but a colleague recently started using a Groening-style avatar of himself on AIM. (Interestingly enough, the avatar resembles the Simpsons character Dr. Nick Riviera, and this colleague is also named Nick. He does not claim Hollywood Upstairs Medical College as his alma mater however.)

I asked him about it and he mentioned the fact that the Simpsons Movie website has a build-an-avatar feature too, which is what he used to create his. It’s not automatic like the Burger King one is (or at least claims to be), but it works, in Mii Channel fashion.

And so, without further ado, and at risk of Fox siccing its lawyers on me (note I kept the illegible legalese at the bottom of the image below), here is my family, Simpsons style.

It’s that King… that evil Burger King!

Burger KingSo there I was, sitting at my desk at work, minding my own business, when suddenly I realized… he was watching me.

Yes, peering over the edge of my flat-panel monitor, that evil Burger King was staring into my very soul!

Whew… I deserve a break today. (OK, so that’s McDonald’s. Have it your way.)

By the way, yes, that’s Anakin next to him. Go ahead, Anakin… kill him! He’s too dangerous to be left alive!
