Philosopher of the Decade

Top Philosopher Homer

Homer Simpson has been named man of the decade.

The doughnut-loving cartoon dad won a place in the poll in Britain's Men's Health magazine to find the most influential men of the past 10 years.

In the 10 categories, Homer won the title Philosopher Of The Decade, while 'Live 8' organiser Sir Bob Geldof, iPod creator Jonathan Ive, TV chef Jamie Oliver and England soccer manager Sven-Goran Eriksson also made the Top 10.

Editor Morgan Rees said: "These are people of real substance and solid achievement rather than temporary fame.

"The people on our list have used their talents to change the world around them, rather than just to draw attention to themselves."

He added: "Homer taught a generation how to take on the challenge of modern fatherhood and win - although not always with honour."
