- "Now, life is hard, am I right? Wrong! Life is easy! You suck!"
- ―Stark Richdale
Stark Richdale is the teacher of the extension class "Successmanship 101" and author of the book Megatronics, The 48 Tips to Corporate Success.
His class aims to teach students to reach for the top and garner a more positive and aggressive outlook on life. His teachings allow Homer to take control of his life, ultimately leading him to become the C.E.O. of the power plant, albeit temporarily.
He believes that life is easy and claims that he can read the minds of losers. His wrist watch has so many jewels jammed into it that the hands can't even move. He also drives a Bentley Mark 12, claiming that they "gave one to me, one to Steven Spielberg, then they shot the guy who made it!"
He later cameoed at several points in The Simpsons Movie in crowd scenes.
