Fact of the Day: Homer Groening

The Simpsons' creator Matt Groening named a lot of his characters after his own family. His father was named Homer, his mother Margaret (Marge) and he had two sisters named Lisa and Maggie. Rather than name the boy after himself, Bart was simply an anagram for brat.
