4. Get stuck into Simpsons-inspired read

The Simpsons has always been so popular because it's so bloody intelligent, simple as. If you go back over episodes you saw years ago, you'll only notice now just how in touch with politics, world culture and sociology that the show is. 

Making it the perfect show to write a book (or four) about. A particularly successful one is The Simpsons: An Uncensored, Unauthorized History by John Ortved available on Amazon. Go on, treat yo' self.


5. Buy this painting from "The Shinning"

Yes, it is spelled correctly. 

You can get this actually timeless art piece for less than €14, what a deal.

8. Bake with this Simpsons doughnut maker

This beauty makes six doughnuts, has a non-stick coating AND includes recipes. And just when the doughnut revolution is kicking off in the city, how ideal.

So unfortunately this doesn't ship to Ireland, but surely if there was ever a time to call out a favour from a friend abroad – this is it.

9. And finally, get your mitts on this Homersapien action figure

Homersapien is the remote-controlled, donut-loving robot of your dreams. It's a Simpsons version of the classic Robosapien, and resembles Homer, in case you didn't get that.

It comes pre-programmed with 67 actions, including the ability to throw, dance, and burp. And is for sure to keep you entertained for hours.
