Chew on this. I’m a classics nerd, and therefore will ofttimes cite Homer as my favorite author. My favorite artist? Winslow Homer. Nickname of close friend? Homer*. Unfortunately, my favorite Simpson’s character is Moe and my best sports moment was making a save in gym class floor hockey, so it’s not enough to be a full obsession. More of a streak, I guess. Still — weird. I like stuff called Homer.
*Why not “favorite”? Grown men don’t have favorite friends.
