E.A.R.L. is a decoration released on March 28, 2014, along with the level 39 content update. It's the 6th Friend Point Prize.


E.A.R.L., short for Electronic Automatic Robotic Lighthouse, is a system that controls an automated lighthouse in Springfield.

Homer had a fight with Marge and was wandering through Springfield in search of his soulmate when he happened to look at the lighthouse. It occurred to him that the lighthouse keeper had to be the loneliest guy in the world, so he ran to the lighthouse. When he got there, he saw the sign on the door reading "This lighthouse operated by EARL". Taking that to mean the name of the lighthouse keeper Homer eagerly rushed in and shouted, "Here I come, buddy! No more loneliness for Homer and Earl!"
