Merman Sighting on the Simpsons

Just in case you hadn't guessed, one of my favorite shows is the Simpsons! Most seasons have an episode that is a storyteller episode. It's usually got a theme (history, tall tales, sea stories) and is divided into three stories.
In the fourteenth episode of the thirteenth season, Tales from the Public Domain, Homer reads three stories to the kids. One of the tales he tells is the Odyssey. Homer is Odysseus and after destroying Troy he refuses to make a sacrfice to the gods who then curse him and his crew. They used the Sea Captain to be Poseidon. Later in the episode Marge's sisters Patty and Selma are the beatiful (sounding) sirens.

I just found this other version of Homer in the Odyssey from the simpsons comic.
