Top 10 Reasons Why Homer Simpson is Better Than Peter Griffin

The Top Ten
1 He's funnier

He tried to pretend to be a black guy and Lois beat him up I was so happy!

He has better lines (stupid like a fox, I am so smart S.M.R.T), I can't remember any funny Peter lines

2 He doesn't use inappropriate jokes
3 He's not offensive

Homer is all of these he used innapropiate jokes and The Simpsons itself is offensive.

Peter can go to Hell!
Homer all the way!

4 He doesn't blame his problems on his daughter

Peter abuses his children, must most of all he hates his daughter, Meg!
Homer, on the other hand (at least in the first 8 seasons), never favored one of his children over another one! He loves all his children equally and that's why he's so much better as a father!

5 He doesn't hate his wife
6 He pays attention to his son

Wrong. Homer strangles him, makes him drive for him, abuses him, makes him put food in his mouth and hates him. Homer doesn't care about Bart at all. Peter loves his family while Homer tries to kill his family. Whoever made this is just biased towards The Simpsons.

Homer cares about Bart while Peter probably doesn't even know how old Chris is.

7 He's more original

Ain't that the truth? Peter Griffin is a terrible ripoff and Family Guy should be cancelled.

8 He isn't mean to his daughter

One thing that made me stop watching family guy is the fact that all the jokes and humor were all overshadowed tremendously by me feeling insanely sorry for Meg. Her life is horrible, her entire family hates her, especially her father.. in fact Brian is right in saying that Meg is the strongest person in the family, if my life was filled with such misery I would've offed myself ages ago. I just can't stand watching how Peter treats Meg. The fact that the producers think this is funny is proof that Family Guy should just END already.

Homer on the other hand has a beautiful relationship with Lisa. I still remember the episode where Lisa needed to relieve her stress.. and she momentarily had a vision of herself as Homer.. and realized that Homer did a LOT of things he hated all for the sake of spending time with her.. Peter would never do that, even if it wasn't Meg. What Homer lacks in brains he makes up for in his insanely big heart and innocence.

9 He has better quotes
10 He's nicer

Homer is a heavily flawed man, but there's a good side to him and he's shown to absolutely adore his family. Peter, while he's hilarious, really isn't the greatest father. He could commit a deadly murder and easily blame it on Meg.

Yeah... Peter shot Meg in the face for saying HI. Homer lets Lisa say hi to him all the time. Homer strangles Bart, Peter attempts to drown Meg.

Homer cares about his family,
Peter would rather drink beer with his friends.

Homer is the better man

Homer Simpson is a stupid but kind and funny father while Peter griffin is basically an adult version of Eric Cartman but without the funniness.

The Contenders
11 He has a bigger heart

Homer has a big big heart while Peter doesn't even have a soul.

12 He has funnier quotes

Both, I think, were funniest in the older days.

13 He abuses his son, but in a funny way

Homer strangles Bart in impossible funny ways, like breaking the wall of the bedrooms and strangling him.

14 He's a better husband
15 He's funny stupid instead of stupid stupid
16 He's more of a family guy

Homer is a family Guy, Peter is just not...

He loves his family, although not always making them happy he always does the best he can

17 He loves his family
18 He's smarter

Even when Homer says the dumbest things, they're often so cleverly stupid, perfectly contradictory so fast with the best presentation, but Peter's stupidity is like the plot breaker of so many episodes so drastically to the point it gets annoying sometimes

19 He's more sane

That episode with that fat mental guy who thought he was Michael Jackson.
Homer Simpson got a certificate saying "Not Insane" and he was only sent to the mental hospital because of a pink shirt and being too lazy to fill in the paper work and having Bart messing it up.

20 He tries to be a good father

Homer tries. He knows he messes up. He knows he makes mistakes. He feels remorseful and tries to make it right. He doesn't always succeed but dang it he tries!

Peter on the other hand, cares only about himself, goes out of his way to mess things up because he thinks its funny, regardless of who it hurts.

When homer hurts someone, its not intentionally and he wants to fix it!

21 He's kinder to his neighbors
22 He's less judgmental

Homer may be stupid, but at least he has a heart. Homer actually treats his family better while Peter treats his own wife like crap. Peter never listens to anyone, all he does is says what he thinks is right, he never has time to listen to other people's opinions. And when he does, he belittles them! What a jerk!

This is why I like Homer Simpson!

23 He isn't racist

The only reason why the simpsons were able to go on all these years is because Homer isn't as selfish as Peter is!

24 He's less abusive
25 He's a better listener

Homer may be stupid, but at least he has a heart! He treats his family better than Peter treats his own daughter! Besides, Peter never listens to anyone! Peter does only what he thinks is best. And even when he does listen to other people's opinions. He criticizes them! What a jerk!
