Turn Yourself into a Simpsons Character

! Warning: this post hasn't been updated in over three years and so may contain out of date information.

Most of the time, I find the use of flash on web pages really pointless and annoying. Normally it is used to create “style over substance” animated logos and the like. Occasionally though, I come across a real gem of a flash application on a web site that just makes up for all the dross out there. One such app is simpsonizeme. It is a simple genius idea: upload a photo of yourself and turn it into a cartoon that looks like a character from the Simpsons. You can see the results with a photo of myself on the right. My thanks to my colleague, Gary Windsor, for pointing this out to me.
