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! A new mini-event is upon us and boy howdy is it fun so far. It’s all about Homer celebrating all religions in an attempt to rest every day. Pretty cool in my humble opinion. This batch of new stuff brings lots of items and that’s where I come in. I know everyone doesn’t have the same knowledge of the Best. Show. Ever. so it’s time to dive into the TV series and find this new item. This post takes a look at Hamburger Heaven, the 6th goody that can be earned by tapa-tapa-tapping and earning karmic pennies. Of all the items that arrived with this event (excluding Rabbi K), this is my favorite bar none. It might be how close I love to the Crystal Cathedral (the real church this is parodying) but probably more for the sight gag that is involved with it. A lot of the items from this event are one-shots from single episodes. I’m not complaining since it makes my origin duties that much easier but this item is another one.
“Natural Born Kissers” (S9:E25)
Marge and Homer reignite the flames of their passion after getting stuck in a barn in the rain and as a result, star rocking the casbah provided it’s in public with the chance of getting caught. Only problem is they get caught “visiting” the windmill at Sir Putt-a-lott’s where Bart was conceived and end up being chased around Springfield as “naked as the day God made them.”
During their getaway, Homer ends up hanging from a hot air balloon and encounters none other than the Cut-Glass Cathedral.
Because I love this gag so much, I had to show it by itself. Even better is the Billy Graham character switching from having his congregation “look out upon His wondrous creation” to “quickly gaze down at God’s fabulous parquet floor.” A few of us have wanted this ever since EA gave us a hot air balloon.
Squeak, squeak. Squeak, squeak. Kills me every time. And that’s it… the new cathedral that came as a prize of the Homer the Heretic mini-event. It’s actually called the Crystal Cathedral in the episode but I’m guessing EA didn’t want to pay money to the church formerly headed by Billy Graham that now is just as beautiful but called something else. What do you think of it? Ever been to the real thing?
It’s truly a beautiful church and now we have a version for our games. Here’s hoping for some hot air balloon task goodness. Sound off in the comments and I hope this event is treating you great.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
