Simpsons cartoon hero coined on euro

A Spanish shopkeeper has found a defaced euro coin bearing the head of Homer Simpson, the star of the Simpsons cartoon series.

Jose Martinez, a shopkeeper based in the town of Aviles in north-west Spain, found the coin on Friday, which replaces the head of the Spanish monarch with Simpson, a beer-guzzling, doughnut-munching character famed for his laziness.
