Frank Grimes (Homer's beleaguered former co-worker (R.I.P.))
Frank Grimes, 35-year-old Springfieldite, earns everything the hard way, but never lets adversity get him down - until he meets Homer Simpson. Homer's incompetence and nincompoopery drives Grimes into a sputtering, out-of-control rage. Imitating Homer, Grimes capers wildly around the nuclear facilities, madly chewing donuts, waggling his butt, and, finally, electrocuting himself on some high voltage wires.
Quote: "I've had to work every day of my life, and what do I have to show for it? This briefcase and this haircut."
Education: Correspondence school degree in Nuclear Physics with a minor in Determination.
Extra shifts: Works nights at the foundry.
First job ever: Delivery boy (delivering toys to more fortunate children).
Shirts: Extra starch.
Pants: Extra creases.
Daily provender: Packs his own special dietetic lunch.
Dwelling: A single room above a bowling alley - and below another bowling alley.
Previous brushes with death: Silo explosion, attack by crows, and the Seafood Surprise at the Springfield Squidport.
Despised nickname courtesy of Homer: Grimey.
