Skydivers trust Homer over President

People considering a tandem skydive would trust cartoon character Homer Simpson over US President George Bush, according to research.

The public voted the daft dad of hit TV show The Simpsons as their number one choice if they were participating in the daredevil stunt.

Homer got 20% of the overall vote in the survey carried out on behalf of disability charity Leonard Cheshire, while President Bush got just 8%.

More than 1,000 adults were asked to rank personalities in order of who they felt was most trustworthy.

The Weakest Link host Anne Robinson got 16% of the overall vote, while Pop Idol judge Simon Cowell got 13%.

At the bottom of the pile came Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? cheat Charles Ingram (3%) and Big Brother star Jade Goody (4%).

Homer was most trusted by people in the North West (31%) but least by those living in the North East (16%).


LMAO...I don't trust George....but this might be the exception.... :-]

Can't you imagine Homer?

"OK, I got ya! Ooh look, a doughnut...mmmm...."

I can't really trust Bush either. A quote from Robin Williams:

"Our economy is going--oh, look at the kitty." :-b

I'd like to suggest that if they were to make a live-action movie of the Simpsons, they could do a lot worse in casting then our current president.
