According to historians, Homer was completely blind, and at the same time was in fact more than one person. Recent research by Baldrick, Cambridge University's leading archaeologist, has shown that Homer's most likely identities were Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, with a dash of Alan Davies thrown in for good measure. The avalidity of this claim is open to debate, however, following interviews with Fry in the early 1980s.“Baaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!”
~ Stephen Fry on Whether or not he was Homer
It is a little known fact that he was a keen inventor, coming up with such useful everyday items as the toaster, Angel Delight and the lever-arch file.
Homer is most famous for his two best selling books, the first being The Iliad: A Deeper Study, the second being The Odyssey: Fokkers in Stormy Waters. The first is his award-winning thesis on exactly why Greeks are so terrible at everything American, the answer of course being that they're not true American cowboys. The second is the sequel, dealing with the consequences of the first book, mainly on why every country but Greece is "totally awesome". This has a grain of truth to it, as we all know that Greece is not America.
Homer took a liking to the internet during his final days, and spent most of his time on MySpace, chatting with his online girlfriend from Lost Angeles.
Homer was also incredibly famous for his competitive eating career. He won numerous awards in the Gyro-eating contests, and even won the Food Olympics in that area for an unprecedented 12 years in a row. However, his career was cut short when he accidentally choked on a toothpick. The irony is that the toothpick would not have cut through him if it had one of those small plastic colored wrap thingies on the end of it, the very thing Homer requested to have removed. It was the only time he had it removed, since it was actually a dare to see if he could eat an all-toothpick gyro.
