D’oh! Driver fails to fool police with fake Homer Simpson license

Nice try...

A motorist is facing the long arm of the law after he handed a fake driving license to police that featured the identity of Homer Simpson.

According to Thames Valley Police, a traffic officer in Milton Keynes was greeted with the sight of the iconic Simpsons patriarch after demanding to see the driver’s license following a traffic violation.

The photo of the license features Homer’s classic ‘D’oh’ face, as well as an address that is incorrectly listed as ’28 Springfield Way’.

“Earlier this week, @tvprp‘s PC Phillips stopped a car in Milton Keynes. When she tried to identify the driver’s ID, she found the below…”, Thames Valley Police wrote on Twitter.

Confirming the driver’s fate, they added: “The driver’s car was seized and he was reported for driving with no insurance and driving without a proper licence.”

One pun-loving Twitter user responded: “Marg….inal offence I would say”.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that a fictional word from The Simpsons would be entering the dictionary for the first time.

In 1996 episode Lisa The Iconoclast, Lisa begins a historical investigation into the origins of Springfield founder Jebediah Springfield and discovers that he was a violent pirate who clashed with founding father George Washington.
At the start of the episode, we see an educational recreation of Springfield’s life, where the word ’embiggen’ is used for the first time.

Now, it’s been announced by the Merriam-Webster dictionary that ‘Embiggen’ is one of 850 new words to enter their definitive list, with the definition listed as “to make bigger or more expansive.”
