Should I blame Burger King or The Simpsons?

Philo SimpsonD'oh! [But updated!] Prompted by the good people of Crooked Timber, I thought I'd get myself Simpsonized — and I'm pleased with the results. But the Burger King site that generates customized Simpsons characters seems to hate Macintosh computers. I couldn't get Simpsonized using Safari at all. Undaunted, I tried Firefox and was able to generate good ol' Philo Simpson. But I can't save my avatar, create an account, order up some gear with my likeness emblazoned on it, or any of the other entertaining options the Whopperkin want to me to do. Hmmph. That's just some evil Flash. And I would have bought a mug, because I am that vain. I'm sticking with Krusty Burgers.

Updated 7.27.07: Okay, I was able to download Philo using Firefox on a Mac earlier this morning. I may yet try to order a mug.

That really is quite amazing. Mine's not nearly as close - I'll email it to you so you can archive it with my guest blogger posts...

Yours looks pretty good. Mine looks absolutely nothing like me. At least, I hope it looks nothing like me because it's quite ugly!
