Well, at least Homer had the good sense to wear his skivvies.

"Well, I don't like it meeself," said one sour-looking tourist. "We've got the historic value of the man, the Giant, and yet this looks more like a comedy feature. And I just don't think it's appropriate to have both of them next to each other."

English pagans are also upset. There are reports that some have been doing rain dances, enticing a deluge to wash the fat man away. Homer's figure is biodegradable white paint that is supposed to be able to wash away.

On the one hand, I think it's funny. Homer and a donut next to the chalk man. It tickles my sense of the ridiculous.

But on the other hand, I think advertising is getting a little out of control. The neighbors don't appreciate this from what I hear, but I bet the farmer who's land that is made a pretty pence from the deal.

I agree that advertising gets a little obnoxious at times, but let us consider the cultural icon that Homer Simpson has become and the irony that the the two juxtaposed represent.

Aside from that, it's fun, funny, and temporary.

thanks for the article..

"But when you actually look at the facts … the closest road to the Giant is actually called Springfield."

and to think they wanted to advertise viagra next to the giant, boy the fur would be really flying if that happened (one look at the full image of the hill giant would see why)

flag given purely for the huge chuckle i just had with the image alone, that is hilarious.
