Christmas is over, the Wookiee’s getting fat… time to put a penny in the fuzzball’s hat… (a penny for my thoughts I guess).
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 still holiday time in TSTO and all of it came with lots of goodness. Wookiee chiming in with origins for most of it. That’s right friends… 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 items that was available in Act II of the 2015 TSTO Holiday Event… the Moonshine Shack. But what does this have to do with the Best. Show. Ever. and Christmas? Wasn;t it an original? Let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.
“Rednecks and Broomsticks” (S21:E7)
What’s more festive than an episode about Wiccans and Moonshine? While not a Christmas episode, me thinks this one might have been a nod to anyone who celebrates Yule in a if you watch the episode there you go sort of way. I’m sure my Dad would agree since every year he insists on calling his Christmas Tree a Yule Thor Bush. Anywho… this episode does start in the vein of this event with a turkey dinner, watching football, a ski weekend, and holiday traffic.
Thanks to the consequences of “Bonk It, Twist It, Smack It, Whack It”, our favorite family almost hits a big rig, careens off the highway onto a frozen lake, hits Bambi and is subsequently rescued by the Spuckler clan. Cletus introduces Homer to his pride and joy… Old Betsy. “A female who gives birth to alcohol.”
Definitely our new Moonshine Shack when it’s all done at Level 3. Pretty cool. Also cool that Homer ends up being an amazing moonshine taster. “Now let’s enjoy the bluegrass stylings of the country bear jamboree.”
Sorry, I couldn’t exclude a great gag on a Diznee attraction. The rest of the episode is definitely worth watching. Certainly one of the better ones from the latter seasons with “boom potaters”, moonshine/redneck jokes and Lisa’s Wiccan friends. Favorite line of the episode: “I bet you think all space is Star Wars?” What do you think of the Still? Did you finish it? I think it’s pretty swell that we got four different special items to upgrade in Act II. Sound off in the comments and much love this holiday season.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
