Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

And Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Open Thread. The Simpsons are back this week with an all new Valentine’s Day themed episode!  Are you excited for the new episode?  The Valentine’s Day mini-event hit our games this past week, are you having fun with it?  Excited to unlock Mona?

So today is Valentine’s Day, doing anything special?

How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting? Staying warm with the crazy cold front hitting most of the country?  Or if you’re on the west coast, staying cool in the crazy heat wave?  Or for our friends around the world…what’s your weather like?  Who’s ready for Spring?!

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Love is in the air_promo_3

    Guess it’s my turn to try and explain an attempted joke 😚 (thought I’d move the conversation up here for ease of access…)

    George Parker (1870–1936) was an American con man. He made his living conducting illegal sales of property he did not own, often New York’s public landmarks, to unwary immigrants. The Brooklyn Bridge was the subject of several of his transactions, predicated on the notion of the buyer controlling access to the bridge. Police removed several of his victims from the bridge as they tried to erect toll booths.[1] (courtesy of Wilipedia)

    If I was naive enough to buy a left-handed sword from you then selling me a bridge you didn’t own probably wouldn’t be too difficult 😃

    Now if you had a pair of left-handed scissors for sale we could talk! 😃😃😃

      Sorry for the late reply. Email became overwhelming so I just called it a loss. Thankfully Lee was still here and I somehow got a reply that led me to check out the thread. 🙂

        • Probably because it was my attempt at a joke. But I’m not sure how funny it is, even to native English speakers.

          Have you heard of the movie or tv show “Flipper”? They are from the 1960s, and later remade in the 90s. It was about a dolphin and since dolphins are similar to porpoises, it popped into my mind.

          Simp said “porpoise” instead of, I’m assuming, propose. So instead of saying “I second it (the proposal)” I said “I flipper it.” Hilarious, right?

          • What? All the best jokes need an explanation…at least mine apparently do. 😕

            Liked by 2 people

          • Exactly. I didn’t know he meant “seconding” and now I do. Without the explanation I’d only thought of the flipper part being similar to my not on porpoise typo. (Just a typo for purpose that I left just because why not. Old Open Threads should always get wild. Only the cool kids hang out after the party and paint fences white!)

          • My jokes are like your seven layer dip…to get to the “good stuff” you have to dig deep, unless you like the top layer, then just stay there. This is meant as an add on to my other reply to you (and a way to get to 1000).

            When something humorous comes to mind I either work it into a “fully functional” joke or just roll with what I’ve got. Since we’re in last week’s thread I just rolled with “I flipper it” ’cause, why not.

            Anyways, now that I’ve peeled back one layer, welcome (everyone) to the inner machinations of the Davebo mind.

          • I think layer one is just liking the physical view of your letters. (Replace that with how the words sound, as appropriate.) Layer two is understanding the actual words individually. Layer three is understanding them as a group, the full sentence. (I think I was between this level and the next.) Layer four is understanding that there is some subtext. Layer five is actually understanding the subtext, including pop culture references. Layer six is finding an even deeper hidden meaning that no one else “gets”. Layer seven is just being Davidbo33. This is the level where someone says, “Davidbo33, I dig you!” 😉

            Even though I said “understand”, “like” also applies to each level.

          • My typo was for propose, yes. Then I made another “typo” for purpose. Then I confused the two. Autocorrect where appropriate.

        Why can’t I find the meaning of “flipper”? I know it as a noun, that part of body sea animals use for swimming, and as a movie… Internet has just taught me it’s also a band from San Francisco, but I just can’t figure out what “I flipper it”.

        I hope it’s not a super dumb question, otherwise I’ll feel like an idiot. 😛

        • Maybe it should have been “I flipper that”. I didn’t get it either, Vanessa, besides porpoises having flippers. I just smiled because I thought we were having nonsensical fun. 🙂 Did you see his explanation now?

          Like

          • To be honest, “I flipper it” WAS meant as “nonsensical fun.” I saw porpoise, I thought Flipper (and that porpoises have flippers). While the rest was in my mind, it wasn’t exactly a fully formed idea/joke. It wasn’t meant to stand up to scrutiny, but rather be read and forgotten, maybe get a chuckle.

            When Vanessa asked for some clarity, perhaps I overdid my explanation. A better response might have been, “just a nonsensical joke, playing off of Simp’s “porpoise.”

          • We’ve had some confusion over jokes before. Added to it, this time, was Vanessa looking to understand the un-understandable. Instead of being a case of “lost in translation” it was lost somewhere in my mind. 🙃

          • Yes, I saw it 🙂 I didn’t know porpoise was an animal. Actually I saw a word with a “p” and an “r” and an “s” and an “e” and saw “propose”. Guess I don’t pay much attention when it’s late in the night…

    • OMG I’m very I’m very impressed! I just start with putting down buildings then try to figure out a design. I change things on almost daily basis, I get one area done, move to other then don’t like the way it all looks so change it over and over. I like my town for the most part, but sure yours must put mine to shame!

    • Once again using the first picture I made (which is the last one I posted 😃) I did the ‘rough’ sketch using the Illusion Hand app Sketch function. Don’t think it ‘sketches’ quite as well as SketchMee but it gave me the look I wanted…

      And that’s how the magic happened😃😃😃
