Did This Old Comic Inspire Matt Groening? [Pic]. This comic strip was found in a 1949 Icelandic newspaper. Was Matt Groening inspired by it for Homer? It`s uncanny.

The writing at the bottom says something about "axing too well" in Icelandic. I doubt Danish newspapers and magazines don't translate their punchlines.
