Wild West 101: Wanted Bandits

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to hitch up the wagons and head out west, because the Wild West has hit our Springfields! With bandits to tie up, guns to sling, gold to pan & gold ole’ Homer getting everyone all riled up!

With so many layers to this event, it’s easy to get confused with what’s going on. Especially when they add a new element with a new Act!  But, that’s where we come it!  To guide you through the ins and outs and break it all down in a manageable way, that anyone can quickly understand.

In this post we’re going to break down Wanted Bandits, those big bad Mongo looking ones, that are roaming around your Springfield.  By the time we’re done you should have all the 4-1-1 (do people still say that?), on those Mongo looking bandits.

So let’s get to it shall we?

May the Fourth Be With You 2016: Star Wars & The Simpsons

Hello hello friends! So it’s May the Fourth and you know what that means!

“Happy Anni…birth…tine’s…shark week?”

Nope… Star Wars Day… woo hoo! As the resident walking carpet of the site, I always love when this “holiday” comes around and I have an excuse to celebrate Star Wars on a Simpsons site.  It’s the sort of day where I get to let my geek flag fly and all the varied Star Wars shirts I wear on a day to day basis compete for the honor or being worn by the fuzzball.  It’s a great day even if it’s just a fake day but if there can be a “run up the flag pole and see if anyone salutes day”, there certainly can be one dedicated to Star Wars.  Even better, the day is all based on a pun.  As a skipper on the most magical attraction ever, I love me some punderful jokes.
