    Without beer, Homer doesn't function well.

    The joke is that it's completely out of order, the mark of someone who is not functioning well. He clearly hasn't had his beer, or he's have said it closer to standard English.

    [I'm not a teacher.]

    Homer Simpson is a character in the American cartoon The Simpsons.

    His favorite food are beer and doughnuts. He often eats doughnuts during his work, and drinks beer after work.

    The quote refers to Homer lives on beer. In other words, it compares Homer to a machine. If Homer didn't drink beer, he couldn't talk, walk, work, etc. just like a machine lost all its functions. Haha....
