Artist’s Deliberately “Sh*tty” ‘Simpsons’ Gift Is Actually Kind of Genius

Homer's spice rack from the Simpsons. A misshapen, lopsided wooden rack with nails sticking out of it.

What do you give the Simpsons fan who has everything? Why not a replica of a classic gag from the show?

Last week, Reddit user cle1110 posted a photo to r/pics and r/woodworking of a spice rack built for a “‘shitty’ gift exchange”—presumably a gift exchange in which the gifts are intentionally terrible. Or maybe it’s a gift exchange that cle1110 personally believes is shitty? In any case, I wish I could be in the room when the recipient unwraps this bad boy. In the photo shared to the Reddit thread, the spice rack is an almost exact replica of a spice rack that Homer Simpson tries to make for Marge in season 2’s “Itchy and Scratchy and Marge”—that is, a misshapen abomination with nails sticking out of it.
