60 per cent of respondents knew that, on The Simpsons, Homer's son is named Bart. Only about 21 per cent could name one of the ancient Greek poet Homer's epics (The Iliad and The Odyssey)
Then again, how many Classicists could tell us the name of Homer's brother? [I won't be adding comments with the 'answer' to this one]
