  1. This is Homer’s 22nd costume now but I don’t care that its another costume for Homer. Patriotic Homer is actually Homer’s curling outfit from the “Boy Meets Curl” episode so its a bit disappointing that none of his tasks or his questline references curling. I really like that he uses the Springfield Mall and Sprawl Mart (if I store the mall), and Fireworks Factory but I don’t have it so he goes to the Fireworks Barge instead, I wish the barge would be constantly shooting the single firework while Patriotic Homer was on the task since the barge stays the same wile PH is on the task. The task at Town Hall is also an ok task for him. His visuals are interesting since Patriotic Homer waving the flag and occasionally wearing a foam finger would’ve looked great on the Sports Winners Stand but at least he walks around doing the task instead of staying in one place. Homer lying down eating donuts is definitely something he’d do but he does have a lifetime supply of donuts so it’ll keep him happy. His questline was very amusing but a little shorter in time than other character/costume questlines plus it has 4 parts instead of 5. 🇺🇸 🍩 🎆

  2. Yes, it’s the upteenth Character Costume for Homer Simpson (as if we don’t have enough!) ….. but this is 1 of 2 Event Prizes worthwhile (that 8 Hour Character Task “Eatting Patriotic 🍩’s” is damn funny!) 😂

  3. Has EA pulled the plug? Spinning doughnuts for days now!

  4. Boooooooo! Another Homer costume! How original! Boooo! Hissss! Booo!

    • His redeeming quality, at least for me, is that he has a task at the Fireworks Factory. That’s one of my favorite animations in this game.

      • Ok, knew I forgot something else funny …. thanks Alissa for jarring memory like ☕ (and yep Homer in the Fireworks Factory is funny) 👍🏻

    • I do like the flag waving task…but its only as hour….
