Just because you're an AP lit student, doesn't mean you can't enjoy things like the Simpsons.
I'm a freshman in high school and I think of Homer, the poet, before I think of the Simpsons. How did you not hear the context in which they were using his name? I think I could tell the difference between an author of an epic and a cartoon character from what someone says. :P
I think this is great. Most Americans probably associate Homer with the Simpsons regardless of Literature background. I found the poet Homer's work rather dull anyway and would much rather watch an episode of the Simpsons. It's not one of the longest running TV shows of all time for no reason.
