Simpsons fan David 'Duff Man' Murray shares his collection

FOR more than 20 years, David Murray has loved the wit and clever one-liners from The Simpsons.

"It is not just a kids' cartoon," David said.

"There is always something in every episode that has the take-home factor."

The take-home factor spread to David's house in Yeppoon, after a former girlfriend bought him a few Simpsons collectables.

Over time, those collectables have grown to a collection of hundreds of items and David has dedicated a whole room to display them.

"Kids love it but the adults shake their heads," he laughed. From a talking clock to his set of Australian Simpsons stamps, David said he collected anything authentic Simpsons but the one thing on his wish list was anything signed by creator Matt Groening.

"I am still buying Simpsons stuff," he said.

"If I ever move house, the only thing I'll pack is the Simpsons stuff."
