IT'S the cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems - and now Duff beer is available here.

Homer Simpson enthusiasts are shouting Woo-Hoo! at the news their idol's favourite beer has finally arrived in Ireland.

And off-licence owners say they can't stock enough of the famous brand which just flies off the shelves.

Pat Cooney, of the Gleeson Group, is the man responsible for importing Homer's favourite tipple which is brewed in Belgium.

He said: "We can't keep up with demand for Duff which brings a bit of levity into these depressed times.

"It really is a lovely beer which is selling like hot cakes all over the country. It really is incredible how fast it sells."

It sells for about EUR1.99-a-bottle in off-licences or you can get a Homer six-pack for EUR12.99.

The more famous canned version won't be available until next year because the brewery is already struggling to meet demand for the bottles.

Duff bottles would make the perfect Christmas drink to stock at home but Mr Cooney said you'd better hurry: "My advice would be to get it quick because Duff is going to be huge in the run-up to Christmas."

Duff is the drink that Homer always returns to.

He dallied with the Flaming Homer and occasionally tries something new, but always returns to Duff.

The famous slogan is "can't get enough of that wonderful Duff" and Homer has always tested that theory to the limit.

But his lifestyle is not recommended for the average boozer. The dad-of-three has found himself in terrible scrapes after many bouts of over-indulgence.

When Marge threw a house party, Homer drunkenly insulted all the guests before passing out on the floor.

His wife fumed: "I like to think that I am a patient, tolerant woman, and that there was no line you could cross that would make me stop loving you.

"But last night, you didn't just cross that line, you threw up on it."

My advice would be to get it quick because it's going to be huge at Xmas

Homer no function beer well without.

HOMER: drunk Look, the thing about my family is there's five of us. Marge, Bart, Girl Bart, the one who doesn't talk, and the fat guy. How I loathe him.

HOMER: How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain.

Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

HOMER: Here's to alcohol, the cause of - and solution to - all life's problems

HOMER: I take a whiskey drink, I take a chocolate drink, and when I have to pee, I use the kitchen sink.

HOMER: Homer no function beer well without.

HOMER: I do have a warm sense of well-being, and I sheem to be slurring my speech.

HOMER: Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose: it's how drunk you get.

BARNEY: Hey, Homer, I'm worried about the beer supply. After this case, and the other case, there's only one case left.

HOMER: Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you'd step over your own mother just to get one! But you can't stop at one.

You wanna drink another woman!

BARNEY: Hello, my name is Barney Gumble, and I'm an alcoholic.

LISA: Mr Gumble, this is a girl scouts meeting.

BARNEY: Is it, or is it you girls can't admit that you have a problem?

HOMER: Got any of that beer that has candy floating in it? You know, Skittlebrau?

APU: Such a beer does not exist, sir. I think you must have dreamed it.

HOMER: Oh. Well, then just give me a six-pack and a couple of bags of Skittles.

LENNY: So then I said to the cop, 'No, you're driving under the influence... of being a jerk'.

HOMER: It's true, I'm a Rageaholic... I just can't live without Rageahol!
