An unidentified driver produced Homer Simpson's license when he was stopped for violating a traffic rule in southern England. Yes, you read that right! The man actually produced a license with the credentials of the fictional character from long-running American animated sitcom The Simpsons.
Thames Valley Police took to Twitter on March 15 to share a post with the picture of the fake driver's license. According to the post, the incident happened in Milton Keynes. When the officer asked the driver for a driver's license, she was shown the license that had Homer Simpson written on it and had the famous "D'oh!" face of the character.
Following the incident, the car was seized and the driver was "reported for driving with no insurance and driving without a proper license".

Homer Simpson is the protagonist of the show and is said to perfectly represent the general American working class. He appears as a bald obese man who, who is extremely lazy and crass, but extremely devoted to his family and doesn't mind sacrificing his interests for his family's.
