Where Did THAT Come From- Shredded Ned

Special thanks to Addicts reader Robobot for writing this one up!  He reached out and asked if he could write up a WDTCF for Shredded Ned and of course we love when you guys contribute so we said absolutely!  Y’all may know Robobot from the comments, as he’s a regular in the Open Threads and just about every other post.  Thanks again for the help Robobot! 

Sometimes In our silly little game, we see things that pop up and we scratch our heads and have no clue to their origin. They seem familiar but we just don’t know where. Luckily, The Addicts are here to answer the age old question, Where Did THAT Come From?


(Note from Alissa:  This is more along the lines of an episode recap…so you’ll get a full play by play on the episode Shredded Ned appears in)

While Everyone Loves the Idea of Chocolate Bunnies in their Green Beer, Ned does not approve of “St. Easter” and he’s got his rock hard abs to prove it!

“Alone Again Natura-Diddly” (S11:E14)

This episode starts with our favorite yellow family on a hike in the Springfield Nature Preserve

ned 1

The Simpsons hear a Buzzing Sound But luckily Homer is prepared.  Bart then pokes through some bushes and sees a Race Track that was causing the buzzing.

The Simpsons Go to the Race Track much to Lisa’s Chagrin. They decide to have a picnic in the middle area of the track. Until a car Flips into their picnic area.


The Driver Decides to let Bart ride in his car where Bart learns how to drive the car, “the usual way” and meets the driver’s wife in the car who is not fond of Bart putting his feet on the upholstery.

The driver after the first lap pulls over and gives the Simpsons tickets for the race.


The Simpsons meet the Flanders at their seats and find out that Ned is more interested in the safety policies than the actual racing. The drivers race and the crowd is waiting for a car to crash when the T Shirt Girls come out ready to make the sky ablaze with T Shirts.

Maude wants to go get a hotdog. (But make it less than 12 inches long to not bother Ned)

Meanwhile Homer Really wants a T Shirt to the point of drawing a target on himself. The T Shirt girls shoot just as Maude Is coming back and Homer ducks down to pick up a Bobby pin and it’s a direct hit on poor Maude.


And She Falls.

Ned is horrified.

Doctor Hibbert is right on the scene to announce that Maude is dead.

Later, The Simpsons Prepare for the funeral and Marge tells Homer to go easy on Ned. At the Cemetery, Rev. Lovejoy tells a eulogy about Maude and

How she didn’t really stand out with catchphrases, or comical accents, but she was always there.

Later at the Simpsons Home Ned is grieving when he gets Maude’s Squishee Points from Apu, and gets angry at Moe for saying that If it was Ned That died he would have been all over Maude so fast. Later Ned is still upset and Homer offers to walk Ned home. Homer even made calming noises and kisses Ned on the forehead. The full package.


Later in the night Ned wakes up and throws rocks at Homer’s window to wake him up. Homer wakes up and is prepared for a rock war when Ned says that he wants to talk. Homer and Ned go to the swings and the backyard and Homer tells Ned that it was him who made Maude move, it was him who made the T Shirt Girls fire and it was him who parked in the ambulance zone destroying any chance of resuscitation. As Expected Ned gets Mad at Homer.

Homer tells Ned not to play the blame game and Ned agrees. Ned tells Homer that there is no easy answer. Homer then Thinks of a easy answer! A dating Video! The Next Day Homer Films Ned trimming his hedges and taking off his shirt to reveal his abs.


Then With Lisa’s Help and a lot of star wipes on scenes Homer Makes Ned’s Dating Video. Homer then goes over to Ned’s House To Show it to him.

The many Highlights of the video include Ned getting maced, Ned putting in his ATM code, and Ned Showering.


By Now is Ned is pretty angry and the next scene shows Shredded Ned gardening in all his glory.


So step up to the Best. Shredded Ned, The Man With the Chest.


So that is the origin of Shredded Ned.

  1. Is anyone else missing shredded Ned’s first two jobs???? Obviously those are the best ones as they are visible…

  2. Anyone know why Shredded Ned’s outdoor tasks were removed suddenly? Having him trim the hedge was my favorite task for him, and now suddenly this morning it’s gone (along with all of his other outdoor tasks)! Now I ask you, what in the world is the point of being shredded if you can’t be shredded in public?

  4. I for 1 find it comical that underneath all the strange layers of Ned,,there is all this hotness,, wonder if he knows how to use it? With all his religious fanaticism…I love that they gave us this fun side to enjoy in our game. Side note…sorry if some of my previous posting doesn’t seem to make sense. I was responding to jocephus83 when I accidentally sent in the middle of what I was saying….I’m sure anyone reading understands,,just wanted to clarify so that it doesn’t sound like crazy rambling…

  5. Oops…sent too soon! Meant to say there have been times where she was found in places that I could’ve sworn I looked. Sorry for the delay-real life interrupted-

  6. Hey Alissa did you get my email?

    • I did.

      • I sent you a new email did you read it?

        • Yes. I don’t always have time to answer immediately

          • Hey Alissa it’s been awhile and I Was Wondering when should I expect a reply? (Tell Me if I am being pushy, if I am, I’m sorry)

            • Honestly it just takes me a while…i’ve got a lot going on. That and I’m waiting to see what’s available from the others. Give me a little time 🙂

              • Okay. 😊

              • Hey Alissa. I wanted to ask, Were you able to check with Wookie and see what WDTCFS are still available to write?

              • I’m going through a bunch this weekend. She’ll update you when I’m complete. 😉

              • Thanks Bunny! 🐰

              • Sorry if I am being a bother, I had a lot of fun writing the Shredded Ned post and would love to write more. 😊

              • No bother what so ever. We love the fact Readers are so willing to help us out. It does get addicting writing posts. 😉

              • I admit, my Addiction to writing posts is second only to my addiction to TSTO. 😉

              • Hey Bunny, have you or the Wookie written The WDTCF on the Northern Irish Leprechaun? If not I would be happy to write it. 😊

              • We determined that it was already covered in this post


              • Okay

              • I would also be happy to write The WDTCF on Groundskeeper Seamus and The Notre Dame of Springfield

              • They’re both done right now.

              • Okay.

              • I would be happy to to write the posts on the Crook and Ladder Prize Guide

              • lol they’re already done. Remember, we’ve been doing this a LONG time. So when an event hits, we pull all of the info and write the posts when we have the time. So usually I knock a ton of posts out in one sitting if I have some free time. So we always have a bunch of stuff sitting in drafts. It’s like auto pilot for us
                So I would say on current event related stuff we usually have covered. (Kim will spot write posts, but it’s things we’ve discussed well in advance) If you’d like take a look at what’s in the game, then search the site to see if we have a WDTCF for it. If not let me know if it’s something you’d like to write and i’ll double check the list.
                Otherwise, we always welcome new ideas 🙂 Totbox gets a lot of stuff posted because it’s different things, tot’s perspective on what’s going on. Those are always fun too 🙂

              • I don’t want to sound to big for my britches but how do you discuss things well in advance?

              • With Kim? We discuss that she’s going to help me out with certain posts as soon as events start. It’s not that it gets written well in advance. It’s more that “ok when Act 3 starts keep an eye on this because i may need you to cover it if I’ve got too much going on”
                Let me explain it like this. Think of this site like a newspaper. We assign posts well in advance before people can even write about them, so there’s no confusion as to who is going to do what. And we don’t end up with multiples of the same post.
                Right now, we’re set with all of the “reporters” for basic info. We also welcome readers to write posts about ideas/topics on their mind. But we’re not looking for full time “reporters”. Those slots are reserved for myself, Bunny and Wookiee. And Kim occasionally “pinch hits” for me when I’ve got a lot going on. And our “reporters” are going to get first pick of the posts they want to write, because we’ve been doing it for a long time, we have a set formula for how we do things, readers are used to how we do things & well..it’s our site.
                Again, we always welcome the community to write posts about things on their mind, like event ideas, analysis of other events, etc. But as far as the basics go…the Should I Buy posts, the WDTCF posts, the Prize breakdowns, etc…those are usually reserved, assigned, and written by myself, Bunny or Wookiee. So you may want to write one of those, but if we’ve already got it on our list of what we’re working on…we’re going to get priority over it.
                I understand you want to help. And I appreciate it. But when it comes to the standard stuff…it’s almost always already covered.
                Again we always welcome other ideas. Like your idea about a post about these mini events. That’s great. Write it up and send it over, we’ll take a look and see what we can do. 🙂

              • Alissa, one more thing. I have a idea for a post in my mind that could be titled something like Mini Event Mania, in how the mini events are great for people who want somedown time and easy event, but at the sametime they really don’t last 2 weeks (They’re Usually 2 weeks long) and diligent tappers finish them in the first few days, has you have seen people in the comments saying on day 3 of 14 that they have the Firestation!

              • Ok so write it up and send it to me, we’ll take a look.

              • When should I have it done?

              • Just send it when you have it. There’s no rush. I don’t post things as soon as you have them done. I try to get them in when I can.

      • Hey Alissa I was wondering if the Wookie was in the process of Writing The Episode recaps for the rest of Season 27. If not, I would be happy to write them. 😊

  7. Stupid sexy Flanders!

  8. I thought it was from “a streetcar named Marge” when they wereturn doing the bottle scene. I remember Ned was pretty buff then.

  9. Good write-up and a neat addition, but a bummer that it comes from what is probably my least liked episode.

  10. love shredded ned! still hoping for a T-shirt girl character with a 21 t-shirt gun salute outdoor task tho.

  11. 1st) thanks for the recap and i thought this questline was hilarious
    2nd) off-topic, but has anyone noticed the maggie game seeming glitchy? the last two times i’ve searched for her i could not find her at all, then when the timer was up it would take me to a place i know i looked at (and she wasn’t there) and she ends up being in that place. i know she can be tricky to find sometimes but it happened literally the last 2 times where she seemed invisible; enough to make me think “hmmm, wonder if anyone else has this”.

  12. Favorite part, that blur bar in the shower goes to the floor. You go Ned!

  13. Religion has never looked sexier.

  14. Thanks Robobot , well done 🙂
