For Nerds by Nerds: Moe Szyslak, Springfield's Happiest Man

In this edition of For Nerds by Nerds we collected tattoos from The Simpsons that honored the downtrodden slinger of Duff Beer, Moe.

"When the weight of the world has got you down, and you want to end your life. Bills to pay, a dead end job, and problems with your wife. Don't throw in the towel, because there's a place right down the block where you can drink your misery away... Happiness is just a Flaming Moe away.


Unfortunately, we can't actually go to Moe's Tavern to throw back a couple Duffs, but we've got the next best thing — tattoos of Springfield's biggest curmudgeon, Moe Szyslak. Since we first saw Moe yell out that he was looking for Amanda Hugenkiss, we couldn't help but be enamored with the down on his luck bartender. 


With a face that not even a mother could love, and a penchant for pulling a shotgun on even his closest friends, Moe weaseled his way into our hearts by being the underdog of all underdogs. So, grab a pickled egg to snack on, a cocktail made mostly of Krusty brand cough syrup, and get ready to enjoy these tattoos of Moe alongside some of his greatest quotes.

Some motivational words from Moe. (Via IG - brendontattoo) #moe #MoeSzyslak #thesimpsons
Man, you go through life, you try to be nice to people, you struggle to resist the urge to punch 'em in the face, and for what?

Hey, Homer came up with the drink, but I came up with the idea of charging $6.95 for it.

And she trashed my bar! No, wait, she actually cleaned up a little bit. Good for her.

I like creating disappointment. You know that little moment when people's hope dies? I feed on that.

You little S.O.B.! Why, when I find out who you are, I'm going to shove a sausage down your throat and stick starving dogs up your butt!

I'm better than dirt. Well, most kinds of dirt, not that fancy store-bought dirt... I can't compete with that stuff.

X-mas is a good time to pick up alcoholism. You have to deal with your relatives 365 days a year. Leave at least 1 day for your bartender.

Sure, Homer, I can loan you the money. However, since you have no collateral, I'm gonna have to break your legs in advance.
