Cold War Blues Pt. 1
The General starts

The General: Students of Springfield, I’m here to talk to you today about the incredible career opportunities available in the U.S. military.
Bart: Hmmmm. Get woken up at 4am to do pushups in the mud…or sit on the couch and watch my Shiba Inu go up.
The General: You know, there’s a lot more to being happy than just making money. For example, being a part of something bigger, pushing yourself to the limit, and defending your country!
Nelson: Spoken like a true paper hands.

Homer: I’m all good. Collecting SSS!
The General: SSS?
Homer: Sim Simpson Support.

Cold War Blues Pt. 3

Cold War Blues Pt. 4
The General starts

The General: I’ll have another, Moe. Actually, make it a double.
Moe: Recruitment not going so hot, eh?
The General: I only got one person to take a meeting with me…and he cancelled when he found out I wasn’t “The General” from car insurance and couldn’t help him meet Shaq. Hey, why’d you take my drink away?

Make The General Try to Get a Buzz From Popcorn Salt- 4hrs

  1. All my characters are so impressed with the General that they are all stuck in the Town Hall…..any ideas as to how I get them out?

  2. Voiced Character with clever Visual Character Tasks (and he’s free!) Character comes from an interesting Episode, the same Episode where I’ve longed to see Amelia Vanderbuckle added to the Game App! 👍🏻
