The Lard of the Rings pt. 1Edit

Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon ”Greetings! I am a circus strongman, the 13th most popular sideshow at the circus.”

“But the guy who eats glass is retiring soon, so I’ll be moving up the list.”

“I have the strength of Hercules! And like Hercules, I have been tasked by the gods to perform Twelve Labors.”

“Unlike Hercules, I’ll probably only get through five of them.”

“Help me achieve my First Labor: impressing rubes with a feat of strength!”

The Lard of the Rings pt. 2Edit


Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon ”What will be the second Labor of Homercles? If I can earn the gods’ favor, they will grant me a boon…”

“Perhaps a leotard that doesn’t bind up in the crotch.”

Apu Icon ”Strongman, I have an eight-headed hydra that will take all your strength to defeat.”
Strongman Homer Icon ”*Gasp* You mean… the octuplets?!”
Apu Icon ”Yes! My kids broke into the bulk Halloween candy and now they’re going crazy in my store on a total sugar high.”

“Do whatever you must. As a loving parent I ask only this: keep the windows closed so I don’t hear them screaming.”


Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon ”I almost had them trapped behind the Squishee machine, but then they beat me up and stole my weight belt.”
Apu Icon ”Beating up an employee… sometimes my kids make me proud.”

The Lard of the Rings pt. 3Edit


Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon "Who’s got a Labor? Looking for a Labor.”
Krusty Icon ”Hey, strongman! I bought a bunch of horse meat from this Greek guy, Diomedes, for my new signature Krusty Whinniewich.”

“How’d you like to tenderize it by pounding it with your fat fists?”

Strongman Homer Icon ”They’re not fat, they’re full-figured.”


Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon ”Well, I made a lot of progress. The meat used to be tough as boot leather, now it’s only tough as shoe leather.”
Krusty Icon ”Another Krustyburger disaster. I guess the moral is, don’t look at the Greeks bearing gift horses in the mouth.”

The Lard of the Rings pt. 4Edit


Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon ”I’ve gotta get one of these labors right, or I’ll never get my boon from the gods. And I want boon! Major boon!”
Mr. Burns Icon ”Strongman, I have lost one of my hounds. For your next task, you must travel into Hell, find him, and bring him back.”
Strongman Homer Icon ”I get finding a lost dog, but what’s the “travel into Hell” part?”
Mr. Burns Icon ”Well, he’ll only come to my voice. So you must carry me pick-a-back while we search…”

“And the entire time I’m going to complain about the cost of employee health and pension benefits.”

Strongman Homer Icon ”So cruel! Still, eyes on the boon. Eyes on the boon.”


Character Dialogue
Mr. Burns Icon “Oh, my poor little doggy, you look so tired. Just clamp your jaws on the Strongman’s leg and he’ll drag you home.”

The Lard of the Rings pt. 5Edit


Character Dialogue
Strongman Homer Icon “I’m so sick of doing labors! Who’d’ve thought they’d be like work!”
Moe Icon ”I’ve got a job for you. I need you to kill a bull in my tavern.”
Strongman Homer Icon ”Kill him yourself. The next feat of strength I’m doing is thunder farts.”
Moe Icon ”Nah, I mean killing a “Duff Bull”, the new beer from Duff. “There’s no bull about Duff Bull.” Or some such.”
Strongman Homer Icon ”Finally a labor that involves getting drunk, like my regular job.”


Character Dialogue
Moe Icon “Well, counting up the empties on the bar, I’d say you finished the Twelve Labors of Homercles.”
Strongman Homer Icon “Let’s go for forty-seven.”


  • The name of this quest is a reference to the famous series of books The Lord of the Rings.
