D’oh! The numbers behind Homer Simpson’s favourite catchphrase
Over the years the inhabitants of Springfield have given us a cavalcade of quotable lines to use in our everyday lives. Home to the most famous family in America, The Simpsons, this city has provided the back drop for the animated family’s escapades for 29 seasons now, making it the longest running animated series on TV.
Of all the quotable lines, the most famous is also the shortest—Homer Simpson’s trademark “D’oh.” This annoyed grunt became so universally popular that it made its way into both the Oxford English Dictionary and Merriam-Webster Dictionary, defined as a word “used to express sudden recognition of a foolish blunder or an ironic turn of events.”
The team over at TonerGiant have decided to celebrate this expression by creating an infographic dedicated to all things “D’oh.” Have you ever wondered how many times the catchphrase has been uttered? Which episode it appears in most? Or would you like an insight into the show’s eerily accurate predictions for the future?
All this plus more is included in the infographic below, take a look and indulge your Simpsons fan knowledge!
