A few months ago I saw this post:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=388525.0  and almost died laughing.  I knew I had to make them for my bro as we are both major major Simpson's fans.  Everything we say to each other is a Simpson's quote, so these were perfect for his upcoming wedding.

And they were perfect, when he opened them he fell back on the couch and kicked his feet in the air he was laughing so hard.  Told him I made them as a gag gift and he didn't need to wear them, were just for funnies, but he wouldn't hear of it.  He wanted to wear them!  At least some of the time.  So he ended up wearing them for pictures, but not too much time other than that.  Not sure wifey would have liked that too much, LOL.

Took about four hours total for these guys, which is funny because I truly meant for them to stay in the box so that's a lot of work on something for one laugh. 

Here's the reference pic:

And the happy bro on his day:

Thanks for looking!

Those are great. I love that episode. I'm surprised The Simpsons didn't start manufacturing them on their own.
