'Homer Simpson' pulled over by police in Milton Keynes

Fake driving licence presented to officer has picture of character saying ‘D’oh!’ catchphrase

Choosing one of the world’s most famous cartoon characters for a fake driving licence might seem like something only Homer Simpson himself would do, but this week police pulled over a driver who had done just that.

A unidentified male driver was stopped by police in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, this week and presented the officer with the licence, featuring the character from The Simpsons.

This was presented as a driving licence to us last night in @tvp_mk. Also had no insurance and therefore car seized and reported for both offences. #P6432 pic.twitter.com/JEZq0Fu4y6

The date of birth on the fake licence is 4 August 1963, while Simpson’s date of birth in the TV show is 12 May 1956.

One person wrote: “Everyone knows that Homer Simpson lives at 742 Evergreen Terrace! Amateur ... ”
