Springfield Idols Pt. 1
Chief Knockahomer starts

Otto: Hey, Chief Man! What’s the haps?
Chief KnockaHomer: You know, the usual. Rockin’ out. Hittin’ things with my wooden mallet.
Otto: Cool, cool! Hey, you know how your brain is my old myPod Shuffle? That gave me, like, an idea, man! Check out this flyer.
Chief KnockaHomer: *reading* “Visualize the Legalize! Rally for more money for 4-20!” I don’t understand what any of that means.
Otto: Whoa, wrong flyer! Try this one.
Chief KnockaHomer: *reading* “Springfield Schools Talent Competition…blah blah blah…staff will participate in the event…” You want me to enter a talent show with you? I don’t know if that’s really my thing…
Make Chief Knockahomer Consider Entering Talent Contest- 2hrs
Make Otto Talk the Chief Into Entering Talent Contest- 2hrs
Otto: Come on, man! Don’t you want to rock out where it really counts? On stage!
Chief KnockaHomer: I dunno, Otto…
Otto: But check out the last line! “Winner will receive a $40 gift card to Dead Lobster”. The ultimate munchie-killer, man!
Chief KnockaHomer: Hmmm…I could go for some shrimp.

Springfield Idols Pt. 2
Chief Knockahomer starts

Chief KnockaHomer: Okay, how is this going to work exactly?
Otto: I’ll shred on my guitar and you’ll thump and provide backing music.
Coach Krupt: Hey, what are you slackers up to?
Otto: Practicing for the staff talent competition, dude!
Dewey Largo: What are you talking about? We’ve never had that before.

Make Otto Practice for Contest- 4hrs
Make School Staff Read Flyer- x3. 4hrs
Miss Hoover: “Staff will participate in the event…”
Lunchlady Dora: It sounds mandatory.
Coach Krupt: Forget it! Skinner can’t make me prance for his little dog and pony show!
Miss Hoover: “Winner will receive a $40 gift card to Dead Lobster”.
Coach Krupt: See you losers later! I got some all-you-can-eat shrimp calling my name!
Chief KnockaHomer: The disturbing man in the short pants gets it.

Springfield Idols Pt. 3
Chief Knockahomer starts

Skinner: What in the world are all of you doing backstage? You’re supposed to be supervising the contest. Where are the kids?
Lisa: Principal Skinner, the flyers all said the staff would be competing so none of us entered.
Skinner: That was an obvious typo! It’s clearly meant to say “Staff will SUPERVISE participation in the event”.
Miss Hoover: Oooh. That makes so much more sense.
Skinner: Well, no harm, we’ll just postpone the event until the kids can—
Otto: No way, man! The show must go on!

Willie: I know ye sabotaged ‘em, ya well-skelped erse!
Skinner: Yes, well…let’s see who’s up next.
Dewey Largo: Now is my time to shine! I’ll be performing “Stairway to Heavenly Music” on public education’s most famous instrument: the beloved recorder!
Miss Hoover: No way, Dewey! I already set up the glitter drop for my Flashdance number, and I’m not gonna let a pipsqueak pseudo-flautist get in my way!
Dewey Largo: Whatever, I’m going on and you can’t stop me!
Chief KnockaHomer: This is already better than the number we prepared.

Springfield Idols Pt. 5
Chief Knockahomer starts

Skinner: And finally, the two reprobates responsible for this debacle, Otto and Chief Knockahomer.
Chief KnockaHomer: We go by Shredder and Chief Rock-Da-House now, thank you. Otto, what’s wrong? We’re on!
Otto: I don’t know, man. Now that I’m up here…what if everyone laughs at me?
Chief KnockaHomer: Otto, I mean “Shredder”, if I’ve learned one thing about humans, it’s that you’re all motivated by a depressingly shallow combination of greed, petty grievances, and fear. But I’ll also be nice and pretend something called “heart” is involved and that you have it.
Otto: Thanks, man, but I don’t know…
Chief KnockaHomer: Besides, remember what you kept telling me when I helped you bake brownies instead of practicing? “That shrimp ain’t gonna eat itself”.
Otto: Yeah…YEAH! Okay, are you kids ready to rock this house! …
Chief KnockaHomer: They’re all on their phones now. Let’s just do it.
Make Chief Knockahomer Rock Out for the Contest- 2hrs
Make Otto Shred on the Guitar- 2hrs
Chief KnockaHomer: WOW! In spite of our lack of actual rehearsal or discernable musical talent, that was really great! You did it, Otto!
Otto: This is the best day of my life! We totally won, dude!
Skinner: Well, you would have, but unfortunately you’re disqualified because Chief Rock-Da-House isn’t a school employee. Plus I’m just irritated you made me endure all this. The trophy, and $40 Dead Lobster gift card, go to Lunchlady Dora and her dazzling array of sausage link whip tricks!
Otto: No way, man! I’m not leaving this stage till the trophy, and the gift card, are mine!
Lunchlady Dora: *cracks sausage whip* Off the stage, hippie, or there’s more where that came from!
Otto: Ouch! Okay, man, we’re going! We’re going!
Chief KnockaHomer: Well, this was all rather unfortunate.

  1. I suppose I should fire up my main town and go get that !! 🤪
    My little town was all done including side quests by Sunday 😊

  2. Buenos Dias, ☕

    Chief Knockahomer and Otto 😅
    (that Questline was fun! I still got Ladybot and Robot Rumble Announcers Questlines to complete).

    As long as I get a solid Character & Building for each Act (and solid Premium Combos), I won’t pay too much attention to what gets put into Storage (everything else!)👍🏻
