The Upper Lower Middle Class Life of Homer Simpson

Video of the Month

Good old Homer Simpson has apparently had 191 jobs in 27 seasons (and counting)!

That’s if you include titles like fortune cookie writer, the grim reaper, or beer smuggler. In this video his self-proclaimed ‘upper lower middle class’ status is analysed across the years and across different job titles, and is visualised with the help of some awesome graphs.

And when you compare the average American and Homer Simpson, he is surprisingly representative of economic trends in the U.S. Has the Simpsons imitated real life, or has real life imitated the Simpsons? Who knows anymore.
