Hey there holiday tappers! Howzit? So TSTO is officially in White Christmas mode and the snow is a’falling. I don’t know about you but I love my town covered in snow. As a Southern California resident, I like the snow I can oooh and aaah over without being cold or shoveling it. Of course with a brand new event comes brand new stuff to chat about. My favorite part is of course re-watching Simpsons episodes and then sharing with you just where THAT comes from. For this edition, let’s take a look at the Christmas Float.
Once you acquire 580 presents in the game (the first Part 1 prize), the Christmas Float appears in your game. I immediately decided this festive item had to go in front of my mall complex.
Of course, this is because I know the origin of the float. To find it we head on over to “Homer vs. Dignity” (S12:E5). This entire episode revolves around Homer working as Mr. Burns’ prank monkey to earn some extra dinero. He does all sorts of things from hitting Lenny with pudding, being a baby with a boom boom and dressing as a female panda. It’s PANDA-monium!
I laugh every time Ralph says “Sim-sin likes to boogie.”
Long story short, Lisa discovers Homer’s new gig and convinces him to stop, regain his dignity and donate his earnings to charity. Homer uses his dirty, dirty money to buy all the toys at Costington’s and in return, is made Santa in Costington’s Thanksgiving Parade.
Bet you can guess what the float looks like.
So our first prize is something that links Thanksgiving AND Christmas. Pretty appropriate. Also an appearance by Santa Homer where he looks much more like Kris Kringle and less like Homer. Well my friends, that’s really it. Merry Fishmas and Merry Everyone!
TTFN… Wookiee out!
