Someone Built the Homer Car

Powerful like a gorilla, yet soft like a Nerf ball, the Homer is a car built for the average man. Or that, at least, was the vision described by Homer on Season 2, Episode 15 of The Simpsons. And now something called Porcubimmer Motors has built a real-life version, complete with a horn that plays “La Cucaracha.” Well done, Porcubimmer.
