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?
Howdy and Yeehaw Cowboy and Cowgirleenos! How in tarnation are y’all doing? Liking the 2016 TSTO Wild West Event? It’s Act One in the darn-tootin’ new event and with every new imagining by the designer comes new items. This of course means the wild gang here at Addicts get’s to dive into the Best. Show. Ever. and find them like the outlaws they are. For this post, I checked out the wanted posters and decided to ride down the origin for the Wilted Rose, a premium building offered for 60 donuts. But why did it show up in our games? What happened that brought it into Springfield? How does it apply to the Wild West? Let’s check out the Simpsons TV Series to find out.
“Yellow Subterfuge” (S25:E7)
Sometimes EA decides to throw us a premium item from a quick blip in an episode and this one is no exception. For a complete episode recap with lots of pictures by yours truly, click here. The end of this episode is where you’ll find the Wilted Rose. It’s that little scene tagged onto the end of an episode that has become par for the course in newer episodes. Around the 19 minute and eight second mark, Principal Skinner, dressed as Dick Fiddler, rides his beat-down horse into a Wild West town.
He rides right into a brothel we recognize as the Wilted Rose where every lady appears to be his mother Agnes. I agree with the song playing in the background. “This dream is getting weird.”
So there you go. The appearance of this premium item, how it pertains to the Wild West theme, and also why Agnes Skinner has a 4 hr task to dance like a Wild West whore outside of it. What do you think of the brothel? Did you buy it? Sound off in the comments. I’m off to ctahc a varmint or two. Here Bunny, Bunny, Bunny….
TTFN… Wookiee out!
