Does This Stargazer Fish Look Like Homer Simpson?
While many other cartoon characters have living, breathing counterparts in real life, fans of Homer Simpson have had to content themselves with this lifeless (but admittedly Homer-esque) 800-year-old carved stone head, which was recently unearthed in a garden in Scotland. Until now.
With its wide mouth and blank stare, this Stargazer fish, which was photographed by British photographer Mark Webster in the Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, bears an undeniable resemblance to the head of ‘The Simpsons‘ clan.
According to Webster, he recognized the similarities as soon as he spotted the fish, which was using dark volcanic sand to camouflage itself. “I immediately saw a resemblance to Homer Simpson with the bulging eyes and that slightly vacant look with its mouth open,” he said.
What do you think? Does this fish make a passable Homer? Get a closer look at the fish below.
