Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán has been transformed into Homero Simpson: the Sinaloa cartel leader has apparently stepped right into Springfield. The Home Simpson Chapo was created by Italian artists Alexsandro Palombo in a series of drawings caleld 'Drug War,' which also shows Bart Simpson buying marijuana. The hilarious yet very dark adaptations also imagine Barack Obama's head in the hands of Homer 'El Chapo' Guzman-Simpson. 

Homer Simpson is also transformed into Pablo Escobar, the founder and leader of the Medellín Cartel, who died in 1993 during a joint operation between the CIA and Colombian authorities. Palombo posted the images on the blog 'Humor Chic.' He describes 'El Chapo' and Escobar as "two of the most powerful drug dealers in history, to of the most hated yet the most loved and venerated by their citizens." The images also show Bart buying drugs from President Obama.

"Pablo Escobar was a ruthless drug dealer responsible for the massacres of his fellow civilians and officers, but he was also a drug trafficker that was in favor of drug legalization, and his idea was prophetic," says the artist  Alexsandro Palombo. "If, 30 years ago, the institutions of various countries would have taken the path of the drug legalization, would have there been all that blood shed and a drug dealer as powerful as El Chapo today?”
