Love is in the air, valentines are being passed out and hearts abound. New events mean new buildings so I guess it’s time for another Where Did THAT Come From for my favorite readers. Today’s item: Madam Chao’s.
This new building comes from The Last Temptation of Homer (S5:E9). You know, when this episode first aired in 1993, I distinctly remember thinking how attractive I thought Mindy Simmons was. Granted being a 13-year-old boy comes with its own unique challenges as far as the opposite sex is concerned, but the idea of Homer cheating on Marge had me enthralled. She seemed so perfect for him. The tale of morality was pretty deep to me. In the end, Homer of course picks Marge and I think his little song has been stuck in my head ever since.
“Oh Margie, you came and you found me a turkey, on my vacation away from work-y.”
Of course, with age comes wisdom and we all know that Homer would be a fool to ever do anything to lose Marge. I was seriously upset during The Simpsons Movie when she left him. Plus, Marge really is one sexy, understanding mom.
Surprise surprise, I’m rambling again like usual. This post isn’t about Mindy or temptation or an attraction to a cartoon character, it’s about Madam Chao’s, our new freemium restaurant courtesy of the 2014 Valentine’s Day Update. At the low, low price of $2500 and including a new character (a beautiful ginger to boot!), I really couldn’t be happier.
In the episode, Homer ends up having to attend a National Energy Convention in Capitol City (the Windy Apple) for work. His co-worker that goes with him is Mindy. At the convention, the pair win a prize to Madame Chao’s (the sexiest Chinese restaurant in Capitol City) after being crowned as the King and Queen of Energy for no apparent reason.
I’ll always remember Madame Chao’s because of their fortune cookies. Who thinks those things really give good advice? They all come from barrels, right?
NERD NOTE FROM WIKIPEDIA: Fortune cookies have been summarized as being “introduced by the Japanese, popularized by the Chinese, but ultimately … consumed by Americans.”
Kind of weird for our newest building to actually not be from Springfield but really no weirder then an Irish Pub from Ireland or a Log Cabin transported from the past. What do you think of it? Excited to get a new lady in town? Do you like sexy Chinese food? For more on Mindy, stay tuned because rumor has it Bunny is covering her very soon.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
