Don't Simpsonize Me

As pretty much everyone already knows, you can go to Simpsonize Me dot Com, upload a photo of yourself and viola, there is a Simpsons character that looks like you. Here's the thing though - it doesn't look like you. It pretty much spits out a completely generic male or female character (depending on if you told it you were male or female), and they you can change the hair/clothes/etc. to try to make it even somewhat resemble you. The options are so limited, however, that even after your tweaking, it won't.

Case in point - this is supposed to look like me:

me as a Simpson


Really, not so much. It resembles me in that it's a girl with shoulder length, vaguely-reddish blonde hair. Highly disappointing.1

Compare this, however, with the South Park me I created years ago, on the South Park Create a Character site:


It's like looking in a mirror!

1Come to think of it though, the last time I turned into a Simpson didn't work out so well for me either.

...dude.

No f'n kidding. Simpsonization = bad in all iterations!

Miss you!

Ooo...We finally saw HPatOotP last night, too. I liked it much more that HPatGoF.

Best footnote EVER!

Your footnote is too funny.

I think they both kind of look like you. Though truth be told I think the essence of Beth is best expressed in anime.
