New Year, New Job: The Careers of Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson is often depicted as being lazy, incompetent and easily enraged at the slightest provocation. Despite all this, he often (enragingly) finds himself with amazing career opportunities. This week we look at some of Homer's greatest job opportunities!

Astronaut Homer- yes, unbelievably, Homer actually made it to outer space. Homer's bizarre quest for Tang Powdered Drink leads to him getting the opportunity of a lifetime. NASA was looking for an everyday guy who could help them increase their television ratings. Homer and Barney competed for the position, won by Homer by default. Homer gets to outer space and accidentally saves the day, only to become overlooked in favor of an inanimate carbon rod.
