Could you accept "Kwik e Mart owner" for Apu?
Mar 4th, 2010 at 21:59 GMT
Kwik E Mart owner for Apu, Leftorium owner for Ned, mob boss and mafia don are the same thing, Barney is also a helicopter pilot, sideshow bob is an actor or sidekick, entertainer is too vague

You need to greatly expand the possible answer pool. I missed at least a half dozen only because I couldn't figure out how you phrased the answer. Seriously, DMV Employee? Restaurant Proprietor? And in some cases you go it wrong anyway. Homer is a Safety Inspector, Ned owns the Leftorium.

I agree with much of what is said above, although 'DMV employee' is pretty clear. This is not a good quiz to create because there are too many potentially correct answers for many of the choices. I entered 'self-help specialist' for Brad Goodman but it wasn't accepted. And isn't Horatio McCallister the 'Sea Captain'? Too much ambiguity, though I appreciate the attempt.

Actually, I already had multiple answers for each character, but I realize that there are virtually infinite ways to phrase most of these occupations, so bear with me. Keep the suggestions coming and I'll be happy to add them.

Struggled to get the right words for some professions, but understand the challenge to make it - great quiz!
Mar 15th, 2010 at 06:45 GMT
thanks, mckenna. It certainly wasn't easy trying to find every possible word to describe some of these occupations.
Apr 7th, 2010 at 13:52 GMT
I enjoyed it, thank you. Tried many things for Patty: DMV clerk, motor vehicles department employee, etc. Also, for Luigi, restaurateur, Italian chef, cook, chef, All in all I was pretty happy how many were exactly what I entered.

Isn't Max Power just another name for Homer Simpson? I'm sure we see him working in the nuclear power plant in that episode.

Barney does not own Barney's Bowl-a-Rama his uncle Al does and named it after him. Source-season 6 episode 13 'And Maggie Makes Three'
Sep 17th, 2010 at 02:55 GMT
TPAVS4893 is definitely correct about the Bowl-a-Rama. Barney's profession is straight-up drinker and wino. Also, listing Lyle Lanley as con artist is very limiting - maybe also list him as monorail salesman or traveling salesman? Good choices though, some really obscure and difficult ones which is awesome. It's so hard to find Simpsons quizzes that delve past the obvious into the real fanatical territory.
Sep 17th, 2010 at 03:31 GMT
Thanks for the heads up. I admit I haven't seen every episode, so some of the obscure side jobs a character only had for one episode elude me. I don't know why they call it Barney's Bowl-a-rama if it's owned by his uncle, but I believe you. Unfortunately, being a drunkard doesn't really count as a job, but I added snowplow driver and helicopter pilot. Hope that helps.

This is a good quiz. Maybe the majority were just a bit indignant about their poor scores.

Also test subject for barney. "Are those ears?!" "not so loud!" Also doctorb for Dr Nick...The extra B is for bargain
