Don Brodka is the store detective at Try-N-Save. He catches Bart stealing a video game, Bonestorm, from the Try-N-Save. Brodka is a heavy smoker and tends to confuse the Ten Commandments. Brodka is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, as he is seen with a tattoo that reads "USMC" and has the eagle, globe and anchor emblem of the Corps. He is also seen in his office snacking on cheese & crackers in the small packages where the cheese spread comes with crackers ready-made with the spreading utensil. His favorite saying is: "If I wanted smoke blown up my ass I'd be at home with a pack of cigarettes and short length of hose."
He is later seen laughing at Nelson along with many other residents of Springfield. During Trappuccino, he joined the angry mob that wanted Homer dead for dumping in Lake Springfield.
