OK…so the piling on has started over my dislike for Angel Lisa. There are loads and loads of people telling me that “Lisa isn’t dead,” and that “Angels aren’t dead people, Saints are dead people” (which makes the whole Night of the Living Dead franchise take on a whole new meaning).
But, the REAL reason I am not happy to see “Angel Lisa” in our games…is very simple…
WE ALREADY HAVE ONE IN OUR GAMES!!!!!!
That’s right, “Ye of short memory and little faith in my powers of recall,” we already have Lisa with a 16-hour task, called “Be an Angel.” And she isn’t just being good…she is actually flying above the Nativity Scene that we got waaaaaay back in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
In 2014 during the Winter 2014 episode it was earned with Prize Currency
During the Winter Events of 2015, 2016 it was available for
175 – 2015
They ALL (including the “new Angel Lisa) come from the episode, Simpsons Christmas Stories (E9S17) in which, “Reverend Lovejoy can’t attend the Christmas sermon due to his train set catching on fire, Flanders immediately takes over. However, he gets a paper cut and faints. Homer decides to lead the sermon and tells the story of the first Christmas, with Marge as Mary, Homer as Joseph, Lisa as the angel Gabriel, Mr. Burns as King Herod, and Bart as Jesus.”
Why did I highlight “Lisa as the Angel Gabriel?” Because if the “New Angel Lisa” is an angel, and not Lisa…then she should be named, “GABRIEL!!!!”
Not Angel Lisa!!!
So…many of you would now like to stand up and yell, “AHAAAAAAAA!!” (you are always standing up and yelling at me), “So…this is NOT Lisa! It is Angel Gabriel!! So Lisa isn’t DEAD, as you keep claiming!”
Hmmmm…. so you think you have me, do you?
Well, as I was working on this, I went to check my Nativity Scene to see if Lisa (who is currently doing her task “Be an Angel”) has anything to say about it. And who should fly by? The IMPOSTER!!!
But, then…I leaned my head way down close to my padular device….and I could hear a small, quiet, heavenly voice say, “Fear not Patric! You are correct! For it is not God’s way to create confusion on this blessed event. It is the LazyAss Programmers at EA who are duplicating themselves AGAIN, by giving us another confusing character that mimics the very sanctity of the original Christmas gifts we gave you in 2014!!”
At least that’s what I am pretty sure she said. Because, as I leaned closer, the new Angel Lisa whacked me in the ear with her tablet, and I lost hearing temporarily.
So… yes…if you don’t already have it, you are going to get ANOTHER chance at the nativity scene in this Event (as a possible prize in the Winter Wonderland Mystery Box)…which most of us already have. And yes…when you get it, you will have a version of Lisa playing an Angel…which is not to be confused with the Angel Gabriel, which is what this new version should be called.
Don’t believe me?? ZOOM IN on the tablet in the picture of both angels…and you can see the fine print says, IT IS WRITTEN IN THE WIKI THAT I SHALL BE CALLED GABRIEL!
Don’t believe me still?? CLICK HERE!!
So…let’s hear no more talk about whether we should or shouldn’t have another Lisa Angel in our games. Or whether she is dead or alive. I already have one Lisa…who can BE an Angel for 16 hours at a time…and that is all we need.
And what is missing from this story? A skin for Burns as Herod, who would be doing his best (and likely getting confused) to count which Lisa is the real Angel Lisa!
Because for me…the new one is Gabriel. Angel Lisa is dead to me.
