Just hear those sleigh bells ring-a-ling, jing jing jing-a-ling too… Yes Addicts it’s lovely weather for an origin together with you!
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?
Woo hoo! It’s holiday time in TSTO and with the first Act of goodness comes all sorts of different items. I took my first look at everything and smiled big. Snowmen, merrymakers, holiday facades… so cool. I could probably gush and gush about everything but that’s not what I’m supposed to be doing… it’s time again for me to dip into my noggin of Simpsons info and write about specific stuff. For this post I will be going over one of the craftable items offered with Act I of the 2015 TSTO Holiday Event… Christmas Clams $50 a Pound. This one cracks me up because even EA knew it would be obscure and decided to actually say where it comes from.
Of course, I recognized this immediately but wonder if EA wants to start doing my job lol. I highly doubt it. I know some folks wouldn’t instantly head off to “White Christmas Blues” (S25:E8) just because EA gave the origin so figured you might like to at least see an image of the decoration in the Best. Show. Ever.
Global warming has ruined snowy Christmases but through a “micro-climate aberration caused by radioactive steam from the Nuclear Plant and Tire Fire particulate”, Springfield ends up the only town in America with snow. Springfield becomes the supreme tourist destination and all the citizens are prepped to gouge the influx of visitors. The enormous amount of strangers makes getting holiday items hard. Marge is forced to buy clams instead of turkey at Swapper Jacks.
So there you have it. One of the EA designers thought this was super funny and designed it as a prize for the 2015 Holiday Event. I can’t lie… I thought the sign was funny when I first saw it in the episode. I’m a little bummed that it disappeared when Act II dropped. (UPDATE: Yes I wrote this before it came back… woo hoo!) What do you think? Did you get a chance to craft it? Ready for the rush of people buying up all the real-world holiday stuff this season? Happy holidays to y’all and TTFN.
