The circus has arrived in Springfield! Well…three of them have arrived! Looking for a freak show? The Burnsum and Bailey Circus is here! Traditional circus? Ding-A-Ling Bros at your service! Feeling fancy? Then Cirque de Puree is for you. But which one will rein supreme? It’s up to you to find out in the latest event in TSTO…Cirque du Springfield!
Act 1 of this circus event ushered in one new premium character to help navigate this event. Burnsum is an all-new premium character for Springfield, who will not only help earn event currency but also comes with a short questline.
So let’s take a look at the questline for Burnsum, here’s the full dialogue for Strike Out…
Strike Out Pt. 1
Burnsum: I’m not made of money! Strongman, you’re only allowed one serving of gruel per performance.
Homer: This place is the worst! I started with mush, now gruel. What’s next, a thin broth? How can I maintain body mass on gruel?
The Human Donkey: Burnsum even took away my fluffy bed straw. I sleep on a bed of gravel now!
Marguerite: And my trapeze ropes were replaced with tree vines!
Homer: That does it. I’m calling a strike.
The Human Donkey: Here. Everyone carry a strike sign!
Homer: Ugh. I can’t lift a sign right now. Need more gruel.

Homer: Hey, Burnsum, we’re going on strike. Either improve the workplace conditions or we walk.
Burnsum: You dare threaten me? I could replace you just like that! *snaps his fingers* Oopsie. My snapping fingers fell off. That’s it, you’re all fired!
Marguerite: Where are you going to find replacements for us? Not just anyone can do the trapeze.
The Human Donkey: And you definitely won’t find another half-man half-donkey.
Comic Book Ram: Don’t be too sure about that.
The Human Donkey: You’re not half-donkey. You’re half ram!
Burnsum: You both have hooves. No one will know the difference. Besides, Springfield is full of freaks so I’ll be back up and running before nightfall.

The Human Donkey: It’s “hee-haw” and we’re not losers.
CBG: *dismounts trapeze* Taa-daa!
Marguerite: Dismounts should not tear down the entire big top. Let me show you how it’s done. *performs the trapeze*
Burnsum: Good. You’ve all decided to end your little strike.
Homer: No way, Burnsum, we’re just showing these replacements how to properly freak.
Marguerite: We are not coming back unless you meet our demands.
Homer: Put mush back on the menu!
Burnsum: Deal! One serving of mush per freak. Now, get dressed, we’re going on at eight o’clock.
Homer: We sure showed him.
Marguerite: *sigh* I wish you were as strong in negotiations as you are in other areas, my love.
Homer: What’s a “negotiation”? Is that the muscle in the back of the legs? Forget that. It’s all about the arms and pecs!
