Someone Made a Replica of the Car Homer Simpson Designed

Here's footage of a working replica of "The Homer," the car Homer Simpson designed in the season two Simpsons episode, "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" in which he bankrupted his brother Herb Powell (Danny DeVito) by designing said car. The car was made by Porcubimmer Racing for the 24 Hours of LeMons car racing series, which often features theme cars from movies and TV. Like the car from the show, it's complete with a bubble-top back seat, tail fins, and a horn that plays "La Cucaracha."

Watch Nick Turner Try to Do Stand-Up While His Keys Are Locked in the Car with the Engine Running

New York-based stand-up Nick Turner accidentally locked his keys in his car with the engine running right before going onstage to perform this set at Wyatt Cenac's show Night Train. He also locked his set list in the car too, which causes him to only talk about his car situation for the entire set. It's completely understandable because I can't imagine being able to think/talk about anything else with my keys locked in the car and the engine running, and it turns out to be a super funny and exciting set.
