Here’s a question you’ve probably never asked yourself – how much money does Homer Simpson earn every year?
Though you’ve probably never wondered, it’s quite interesting when you come round and actually think about it. How much dollar does TV’s most relatable dad earn per annum?
Thankfully, the good people down at Vox, have done their research and worked out just how much money our humble power plant safety inspector earns.
By taking a split-second shot of Homer’s paycheck from Season 7, the guys at Vox worked out that Homer earns $479.60 dollars per week, and thus $11.99 an hour.
That works out to around $24,395. Now if you adjust that for inflation Homer’s yearly salary is about $37,416 dollars (£28,662) – more than the national average in the UK…
However this is entirely based on his cheque as a nuclear safety inspector and, as I’m sure you all know, Homer has had one helluva lot of jobs – 191 to be precise.
Boxer, trucker, hippie, plow-driver, food critic, mayor, bodyguard, writer, to name but a few.
After three decades of The Simpsons and Homer has pretty much the exact same yearly earnings as he did at the beginning – but hey, he’s doing better than me.
