The Computer Wore Menace Shoes - S12-E6

Trivia: Although Homer claims not to have a computer, he used one in the episode "King-Size Homer" when he was assigned to work at home due to his hyper-obesity. However, this was installed by (and likely remained the property of) Mr. Burns. In "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer", the "Space Coyote" instructed him to get more possessions, and reminded him that he did not even own a computer. On the other hand, during the meteor shower in "'Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky", Marge makes a reference to a screensaver, implying that they do own a computer ("This is even better than our screensaver. And I love our screensaver.").
