iCeM@n: I'm doing something of Homer Simpson-like stupidy am I not?
Geoff Dias: Yep, you're pulling a Homer. You're thinking WAY too much for this.

Anyway, I might go to the Def Leppard concert and pull a Homer. [If] you've ever seen the episode where the Simpsons go to the county fair, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Too many analysts pulled a Homer, while others got caught up in the prediction racket, focussing their energies on issuing stock-price targets and earnings estimates.

But to pull a Homer you need to be responsible for the idiocy yourself.

I catch myself thinking I could get him a Nickel Creek CD for Father's Day, but realizing I'd be pulling a Homer. (around our house Simpson's comparisons are frequent, and the episode where Homer got Marge a bowling ball for her birthday (with Homer engraved on it) is a classic.)
