The Homer Humiliator is an invention Bart Simpson designed for the school science fair. Martin Prince, his partner, failed to see the scientific function of the machine, so they made a Robopet instead. However, after the Robopet became a success, he received funded to make it. Firstly, a pie is catapulted up and hits Homer in the head. Then, an old boot hits him in the crotch. Finally, the catapult whacks him on the head.
Differences between the design and the machine
- In the design, the boot hits him in the butt, but when the machine is on, it hits him in the crotch. (This may be because Homer was facing the wrong way.)
- In the design, the catapult merely is used to throw the pie. The actual machine has it act as a makeshift hammer as well (this may have been an added feature.)
In Bart's design, Homer looks like Angry Dad holding a newspaper from Episode 2.
