By Season 10, this new Homer was in almost every episode. Fans dubbed him “Jerkass Homer” after a phrase he used repeatedly while yelling at random people in the Season 9 episode “The Joy of Sect”. Jerkass Homer is the one who, in “Maximum Homerdrive”, is so boastful of his stomach capacity that he gets into an eating contest with a perfect stranger, accidentally kills him, takes over his trucking route, and acts like such an asshole that the other truckers try to kill him before the end of the episode.
Jerkass Homer is invincible and totally self confident, the evil doppelganger of the Homer that had originally been on the show. Jerkass Homer does ugly things like use the sleeper hold he learned in bodyguard training on Marge and Lisa. Jerkass Homer screams and cries and runs away from home, beats up the Emperor of Japan, feels entitled to hang out with A-list celebrities, and goes on wild benders in Las Vegas to show Ned Flanders how to be exciting.
