Which of these three will be named after the Simpsons’ Homer Simpson?

The Simpsons have a habit of naming their characters after their favourite cartoon character.

Here’s a list of the five best Simpsons character names, sorted by how popular they are in the US and their overall popularity.


Homer Simpson (1951-1953) The Simpsons name for Homer Simpson, a character played by the late comedian David Arnold, was chosen for its similarity to the popular character.

“I’ve got this little thing called the Homer Simpson character and we named our house after him,” Simpsons co-creator Matt Groening said in an interview with the Washington Post in 1991.

“It was a big inspiration for the house, and the Simpsons decided to call it after him.”

Homer-Lisa (1956-1964) Lisa Simpson is the younger sister of Homer Simpson.

Her name was also chosen for her resemblance to Lisa, a fellow character in the series, who died in 1969.

“We thought it would be nice to get a little Homer-like character named after a little Lisa Simpson,” Groening told the Washington Times in 2011.

“Lisa Simpson is a very special character, and that character had a very important role in the Simpsons and I think that’s one of the things that I wanted to do with this character.”


Bart Simpson (1963-1967) Bart Simpson is Bart Simpson’s twin brother.

Bart is a character with a deep friendship with Homer, and was named after Homer’s great-uncle, Mr. Burns, a famous character from the animated series The Simpsons.

Bart was also named after Bart and his great-grandfather, who both died of heart disease.


Bart the Great (1965-1969) Bart the great was an evil scientist who turned the Simpson family into a race of robots.

Bart’s name was chosen after the great-great-grandson of Homer’s best friend, Bart Simpson.

“Bart the Great was a character who was very, very, close to Homer Simpson and that was part of the reason we chose him for this name,” Groen said in 2011 in a profile on the character on the Simpsons Wiki.

“He was a very dear friend of Homer, his family, his friends and also his family was really important to him, so we thought it was important to give him a name that had that sort of feel to it.”


Homer’s Monster (1969-1971) Homer’s monster is the titular character from The Simpsons, a recurring character played for a brief period by the actor James Earl Jones.

His name was originally chosen for his resemblance to the character, played by actor James Cagney.

The truth about children’s dental health

Children’s dental care is at the heart of our future, but just how well is it doing?

According to a new study published in the journal Science, the answer is “not great”.

This is despite the fact that we know more about the conditions that cause and cure cavities than ever before.

What’s more, the new study finds that the vast majority of cavities in children today are due to a variety of conditions, not just cavities caused by tooth decay.

The findings could have implications for our ability to diagnose and treat these conditions in the future, says lead author Dr Lisa Lipschutz of the University of Oxford in the UK.

“There’s been a huge amount of interest in the problem of children’s health over the last decade, and it’s very exciting that the answer to this question is ‘not so good’,” says Dr Lipsichutz.

The researchers used a mathematical model to investigate how cavities affect children’s oral health.

They found that the key to finding a good solution to cavities is to have a good understanding of the disease itself.

This knowledge can be acquired from the children themselves, their families and healthcare providers.

This could be a key factor in finding a solution to the problem.

“The key here is to start at the start, which is what we did,” says Dr Jules Moller of the Department of Dentistry at the University College London, UK.

The model was developed using data from a large survey of dental staff in a UK dental hospital.

“This was the first systematic review of children with dental health,” says Professor Lipskiewicz.

“Previous studies had focused on the impact of poor dental health on children’s outcomes, such as poor oral hygiene or poor oral care.

This paper is very useful because it addresses these problems at the level of individual patients, which was never before possible.”

This was an important step forward in understanding children’s children’s risk of dental cavities and how to improve their dental health.

“The researchers also looked at the impact that different levels of dental education had on dental health in children.

“It’s very clear from this paper that there is a relationship between the level and the degree of education.” “

We found that children with the highest levels of education had the lowest risk of cavions, which could have resulted in a significant reduction in the rate of children developing cavities,” says co-author Dr Christine Emshwiller of the Faculty of Dentetics at King’s College London.

“It’s very clear from this paper that there is a relationship between the level and the degree of education.”

The findings suggest that children need to have good oral health as well as a high level of education in order to improve dental health.

“Dental education is essential to a healthy dental health, but our research suggests that our understanding of cavias and their treatment is not always well aligned,” says Lipschtutz.

“If children with cavities need to be educated in order for them to improve oral health, it’s a missed opportunity.”

The authors note that this study did not investigate children with oral conditions that were related to poor oral health and therefore could not be directly linked to the results.

“However, our results are consistent with the hypothesis that dental education can play a key role in children’s early health and disease development,” says Emshwiller.

“Further research is needed to explore the relationship between education, oral health in childhood and dental disease.”

“We believe this paper is a significant contribution to the understanding of childrens oral health,” concludes Dr Lipperschutz.

Dental office with no staff to assist parents of dying infants found in Florida

A dental office with limited staffing is facing the possibility of closure due to budget cuts in Florida, as the state faces the largest population of chronic dental care-seeking adults in the nation.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the state Department of Health Services said its dental office in the Port Orange neighborhood of South Tampa, which is just west of Daytona Beach, has been forced to turn away a large number of patients due to a lack of staff to help with their care.

The department said it was working to provide dental care to as many people as possible.

The statement did not provide further details.

The department has said it will make changes in its operations as part of its efforts to address the budget crunch.

It did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Dental offices in South Florida are typically staffed by nurses and other dental personnel, but that practice is in jeopardy as the population of people seeking dental care increases and more people enter the workforce, said Dr. David Hodge, a clinical associate professor of pediatrics at the University of South Florida.

Dentists say the shortage is particularly severe in the state’s cities.

The state, which has more than 3 million residents, has the highest rate of tooth decay among states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

More than 1.3 million children in Florida were underweight in 2015, according a report released last month by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Hodge said he had seen this firsthand when he worked as a dentist in Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

The state is dealing with a sharp increase in dental caries, a condition that can cause decay of teeth and gums, and has experienced a significant decline in the number of dental offices in recent years.

Hoyle said that if the state continues to rely on such clinics, the dental industry will lose jobs and patients.

He said he is not optimistic the state can continue to meet the needs of its growing population of patients.

“If the budget cuts continue and dental clinics are not able to provide care to its growing number of people, that is going to result in dentists being laid off and dental employees losing their jobs,” he said.
