You're not dreaming, folks. They actually went this far in turning Homer into a jerk...
He even has his own Jerkass Homer cigars, as seen in Season 19's "E Pleribus Wiggum".

Jerkass Homer is a trope named after the season 9 episode "The Joy of Sect" when Homer said "Outta my way, jerkass!" Since then, the trope has been used to define when Homer has been, well, a jerkass. To find out bad/good qualities about his flanderized self, click here. Luckily, it was toned down once the HD seasons began.
