When you're on a road trip in unfamiliar territory, you might not want to ask one of the world's most famous imbeciles for directions:
A writer for "The Simpsons" said a satellite navigator outfitted with Homer Simpson's voice took him and his wife on an accidental trip to a Massachusetts city.

Mike Reiss, 50, said he and his wife, Denise, were staying with friends in Wenham, Mass., and wanted to visit the Peabody Essex Museum, but the global positioning system instead directed them in Homer Simpson's voice to the City of Peabody, a little more than 2 miles off course, The Gloucester (Mass.) Times reported Tuesday.

"We came via a GPS mistake," Reiss said. "I have a Homer Simpson global positioning system. It speaks in the voice of Homer Simpson."
Is it just me, or would it have been funnier if Homer had accidentally sent them here, instead?
