In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?
For this origin post, we’ll be taking a look at the Homer Decoy that appeared as a craftable items with Act 3 of the Terwilleger Event. At first, both might seem like they have nothing to do with Sideshow Bob but they do and actually come from the same episode. In another Terwilleger event two-fer, I decided to pair the two. So what do they have to do with the Terwilligers? How can a patch of desert and a boat appear in the same episode? Let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.
“The Great Louse Detective” (S14:E6)
Record breaking vacuuming, Dr. Ma-Seuss, massaging turtles and someone is out to kill Homer. Yes, my friends, that’s all in the first four and a half minutes of this episode. There’s all sorts of ways to protect Homer including bringing in Sideshow Bob because he understands the twisted minds of murderers.
In a different kind of SSB episode, Bob actually tries to help Homer find his killer rather than kill Bart. Homer has a big list of enemies: Mr. Burns, Fat Tony, the Emperor of Japan, Ex-President Bush, the late Frank Grimes, PBS, Stephen Hawking, the fat little Dixie Chick and the state of Florida. He’s an ordinary man with a lot of enemies, a people person… who drinks. Bob follows Homer all over but his best idea is setting a Homer decoy.
All that’s left is lying in wait like “hungry Cassius for noble Caesar.” Problem is, lots of people want to see Homer hurt including Moe, Patty & Selma, Willy, Reverend Lovejoy and even himself.
Bob does end up finding out the identity of the killer but I’d hate to ruin the surprise ending. I’m sure that’s what the internet is for. I will say the moment at the end when Bob can’t kill Bart and sings is awesome.
Anywho, there’s your origin for the Homer Decoy. Like it? Have it displayed proudly in front of the Simpson home? Sound off below and stay classy.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
