Homer Simpson can't watch the Game of Thrones finale, thanks to the eclipse

Posted on

Homer Simpson, not the smartest dude on the planet. Homer Simpson, very curious about the eclipse. These two Homer Simpsons do not go well together, and the results are blindingly bad.

Yes, the Simpsons patriarch tried to marvel at a rare solar event — the eclipse on Aug. 21 — but instead of using the right eyewear, he tried to stare at the sun using a beer bottle. Now he’d like to talk to you about the dangers of eclipse-viewing. And worse than blindness for him is the realization that he will not be able to see Sunday night’s season finale of Game of Thrones.

Remember, kids, beer is not always your friend.

The Simpsons returns to Fox for season 29 on Oct. 1.
