Email Homer Simpson

http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/67784.htm

YOU'VE GOT MAIL, HOMER!

By DON KAPLAN
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



January 30, 2003 --
HOMER Simpson is ready to answer your e-mails.

Honest.

Earlier this month, fans of the show began sending email to Homer at an on-line address - chunkylover53@aol.com - shown during the Jan. 12 epsiode.

In the episode, a private-eye hired by Homer to keep tabs on his daughter emailed him at that address.

After the episode, thousands of fans began sending e-mail to the address as a joke, but were surprised when Homer answered them.

Well, sort of.

It's actually "Simpsons" writer/producer, Matt Selman, who registered the e-mail address before the episode aired.

"He logged in the night that the episode aired and it was immediately filled with the maximum number of responses," "Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean told The Post yesterday.

"He's tried to answer every one of them and then as soon as he answers a hundred, a hundred more pop in - it's like Sisyphus."

In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was condemned to an eternity of rolling a boulder uphill then watching it roll back down again.

"It's like letters to Santa Claus, he's trying to answer them as Homer and give advice," Jean says.

That is the second Sisyphus reference in 12 hours for me. Last night there was a Red Bull commercial that showed a cartoon called Sisphus rolling a bolder up a hill. freaky.

That question was just asked on Weakest Link.
