| Homeowner Homer
| Comic Story information
Lisa incorrectly guesses the amount of jelly beans in a jar, though Homer is successful and the family wins a hot tub filled with jelly beans. Homer soon gets a visit from Herb Barnstable, member of the home association, who says he cannot have it on his turf, and gives him a list of things to do. Homer goes to the next meeting to complain, but falls asleep before he can express his opinion. When he awakes, he meets Skip Tarrington, who also has problems with the association and thinks Homer should run for housing association president.
Homer decides to take a stand, but he doesn't get a positive response so he goes back to Skip, who tells him he must connect with the voters on a personal level by getting them to believe that he's just like them. Homer begins by knocking on doors in the neighborhood and begins to spread lies about Herb, so Homer becomes the new president. This reminds Homer that he is alone, though Lisa reminds him that the neighborhood believes in him because they voted for him. At Homer's first meeting, he says he will change things, attributed to protein residues from the board. Homer takes his mission seriously and changes many things, much to the neighbors' despair, causing them to hate him more than ever. Lisa calls him a tyrant, but Bart thinks Homer will continue to be this way.
Among the list of things Homer does to cause this profound hatred are: towing away an ambulance, prohibiting flowers that he is allergic to, only allowing painting with the right shade of white, using goats as lawn mowers and restricting fence height.
When Homer burns down Ned's cross, because it was a public display of religion, Homer realizes that he has gone too far, as the neighbors form a mob outside the house after seeing him burn down the cross. Homer considers going out and speaking with the neighbors, but Marge discourages him, so Lisa does it, but they don't care. Homer runs away from the house and discovers Skip's home, where he sees Skip talking with a bunch of rich investors.
Skip tells them that the area will become a golf course and shows a model of it, with the whole scheme being thanks to Homer, who has caused no one to want to live in the area. Homer confronts Skip, who says he cannot be stopped. Homer tells the mob to come to Skip's house, where they learn the truth and start chasing the rich instead. Lisa asks Homer if he has learned a lesson, which he has, but not in the way that Lisa hoped.
