The White House has reacted angrily to the result of an IQ contest which showed that Homer Simpson is smarter than President Trump.
The cartoon hero scored in the low double digits and at least one point above his Presidential rival. It has been revealed that the contest, which took place in the fictitious town of Shelbyville rather than Homer's hometown of Springfield, to ensure fairness, pitted the two yellow-faced celebrities against one another in a series of gruelling questions conducted over three hours.
The first required the contestants to arrive at the test centre, using only a map and satellite navigation system. Both flunked that question, arriving three hours late and blaming each other. Trump steamed ahead in the second question, which was "What is your name?", though he lost a bonus point by forgetting what the "J" in his middle name stood for.
However, when it came to naming cities and states in the United States of America, the cartoon father of Bart, Lisa and Maggie, took the lead, being able to name his own city of Springfield, while Trump lost points for arguing with the referees about the existence of Calisota, North Montana and Spoonerville.
When the final results were revealed, Homer Simpson initially let out a loud "Woohoo" before the realisation that he was brainier than the U.S. President sunk in, when he asked "Does this mean I have to live at White Castle"?
The President's spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissed the test as "fake news" and walked out of the building in protest, before remembering that the news conference was being held in her White House office.
