Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{August 1, 2007}   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:

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