Although some might reasonably argue that Homer Simpson HASN'T evolved, I see him as having some redeeming traits. For example, there's little doubt that he is a loving husband and father, though pretty lame in his expression of same. No matter, this isn't about Homer's (dys)functionality, or even, really, about Homer. Rather, this is about evolution. And please don't write to me about intelligent design re: Homer Simpson....I'm just not brave enough for that discussion. Ever.
