Call it "Homer-gate."

As the morning Deejays at Y101.7 radio in Jackson, Miss., discovered, Usher's hit song "OMG" bears a striking resemblance to another song by … Homer Simpson?

In a 2003 episode of The Simpsons, Homer sings a self-composed Christmas carol featuring the lines: "Christmas in December, wow, wow, wow. Give me tons of presents, now, now, now!"

And on his smash "OMG," Usher sings: "Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow. Honey got some boobies like wow, oh, wow."

Is it simply a cute coincidence or were Usher and his team (will.i.am wrote and produced it) inspired by Homer's songwriting skills? Check out the video below and decide for yourself!
