Hey Stonecuttereenos! “ a man who called himself ‘You Know Who’ just invited you to a secret ‘wink wink’ at the ‘you know what’.” How much cooler is life now that the “stupid idiots let (you) in their crappy club for jerks”? Of course, this means we all are Stonecutters now (I call dibs on number 504) and are willing participants in the “weird, strange, sick, twisted, eerie, godless, evil stuff” that may or may not be going on in our Springfields.
So, of course we got a really rad Stonecutters event for TSTO with lots of new bits and bobs for our games. This of course means it’s also time for more Where Did That/Those Come From posts from your resident furry companions here at TSTO Addicts. Problem is, most of it comes from the same dang episode.
Because I like y’all way too much to be glib and just say watch the episode for yourself, I thought it’d be nice to just bunch everything together by decorations/buildings/characters and show you what they look like in TV animated form. Of course, you could skip all my words and just spend 22 minutes of your own time… up to you.
The episode most of our new items come from is of course the legendary 12th episode from Season 6 entitled “Homer the Great”. For this first edition of Stonecutters WDTCF goodness, we’ll be looking at DECORATIONS. For clarity, I’ll be showing them all as they appear in the episode.
The first decoration we see in this episode appears after Homer has passed his initiation to be a Stonecutter. He takes the sacred oath right in front of the Sacred Parchment (first emblem prize – 1,450 emblems).
Next, during the great scene where we hear the funny Stonecutter song is the Stonecutters Table (9th emblem prize – 31,500 emblems). Gotta have a table to eat ribs on, right?
It’s these sloppy ribs which bring us to the next decoration. Homer should have never used the Sacred Parchment as a bib, Q-tip and snotrag. For his misactions, he is kicked out of the Stonecutters. All his ceremonial garments, including the official Stonecutter underwear, is cast into the Ark of the Stonecovenant (prize for completing 24 Sacred Parchment clues) which is a great Indiana Jones gag and also a biblical reference.
Poor Homer… he gets linked with the Stone of Shame and banished. But wait, due to a prophesied birthmark, Homie is actually the long-awaited leader of the Stonecutters. In another great gag… this means he doesn’t have to be shamed anymore and instead gets to drag the Stone of Triumph (7th emblem prize – 22,500 emblems), a much bigger rock and chain.
Just gotta say the decoration we got in game makes me think more of the Stone of Shame but oh well… semantics I suppose.
You’d think being the chosen one and having all his friends and acquaintances bow to his every whim would make Homer happy but you’d be wrong. Power only creates spiritual emptiness and isolation according to zen master Lisa. Homer decides to use his new power for the greater good. When he has the club do charity, they build the Stonecutter Day Care Center and we see the Tube Slide ($2500). Moe getting stuck in it should totally be a TSTO task.
It needs to be said that both the Hieroglyph Wall ($500) and the Chest of Sacred Artifacts (3rd emblem prize – 6500 emblems or 55 donuts) were designed for our games. Definitely cool looking though.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this chronological review of all the DECORATIONS in this amazing episode. I really think this one is worth a watch or re-watch for all you tappers. Until next time, remember that if you give away any of the secrets of this hallowed charter, we’ll hold you to the sacred oath. NOW LET’S ALL GET DRUNK AND PLAY PING PONG!
TTFN… Wookiee (Stonecutter 504) out!
