Homer Simpson Voted America's Craziest Dad

A survey of 100,000 U.S. members of Casino Fortune, the oldest online casino, revealed Homer Simpson as the Craziest TV Dad. Sixty-seven wild TV fathers, nearly all from sitcoms, were nominated, and 20 of those were voted onto the Craziest TV Dad list.

Members cited Homer's regular strangling of son Bart; his forgetfulness of his children's names; and general wackiness as reasons for picking THE SIMPSONS dad. Bill Cosby as THE COSBY SHOWs Cliff Huxtable came in number two due to his wild antics and crotchety shoe salesman Al Bundy from MARRIED WITH CHILDREN made #3 on the list.

Besides Homer, three other animated fathers were voted in by the online gamblers: Fred Flintstone, Peter Griffin of FAMILY GUY and Stan Smith of AMERICAN DAD. The latter two are both voiced by Seth MacFarlane. A fourth animated father, Robert Freeman from the new show BOONDOCKS, barely missed the top 20, placing #23 on the list.

Everybody has a different idea of what crazy means, says ceo John Wallis, so we received a very diverse group of dads. Of course, most of our members told us that their dad was crazier than anything theyd seen on TV.

CasinoFortune.coms Craziest TV Dad list was picked by polling members for nominations and then having them vote on the 67 nominated fathers.
