Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It is update time in Springfield my friends! It’s summertime in our pocket-sized towns, and what better way to beat the heat than a waterpark?! But will Bart be tall enough to ride Devil’s Deluge? How will it work out with the waterpark cop? You’ve got to play the update to find out.
Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each of the parts of The Devil and the Deep Blue Slide questline, you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.
So let’s take a look at the brand costume on this prize track, Swimsuit Homer….
Swimsuit Homer is a brand new costume for Homer (because you know he doesn’t have enough already…) and part of the Splash and Burn Character Collection:

The Best Laid Tans Pt. 1
Swimsuit Homer: Good morning, Simpsons! It’s good to see everyone at the breakfast table on this fine, sunny morning.
Bart: Gross! Why are you wearing your tiny Euro-style swimsuit in the house?
Lisa: And why do you have oil all over your body?
Swimsuit Homer: I have my reasons.
Bart: Wait, do you think that if you put a bunch of oil on yourself that it’ll somehow make it seem like you have muscles?
Swimsuit Homer: No…
Bart: Because all it’s doing is shining up your fat folds.
Swimsuit Homer: That was mean, but since I’m in a good mood, I’ll overlook it.
Marge: What’s going on, Homer? You’re getting oil all over the kitchen.
Swimsuit Homer: To answer all of your questions: I, Homer J. Simpson, have entered the Sunshine Suntan Lotion contest.
Swimsuit Homer: Because Sunshine Suntan have just merged with Amalgamated Industrial Chemicals, and to celebrate they’re holding a contest where first prize is a new car.
Lisa: What’s the catch?
Swimsuit Homer: You have to spend the next forty-eight hours tanning and documenting your entire experience on social media.
Bart: Wait, are you filming us all right now?
Swimsuit Homer: Duh! Did you not hear me when I said that first prize is a new car!

Make Bart Record This on His Phone- 4hrs

Swimsuit Homer: NOM!
Lisa: Dad, aren’t you embarrassed that Bart is recording this?
Swimsuit Homer: Are you kidding? This is social media gold! Sunshine Suntan will see how dedicated I am to tanning.
Bart: Nothing gets likes and subscribes more than self-humiliation videos.
The Best Laid Tans Pt. 2
Swimsuit Homer: Good morning, boys! Beautiful, sunny day today, isn’t it?
Carl: Homer, why are you on time for work?
Lenny: And why aren’t you wearing any clothes?
Swimsuit Homer: I entered a suntanning contest to win a new car, so I have to keep tanning for two days.
Burns: Simpson! What is the meaning of all this naked, glistening flesh? We have a dress code here.
Swimsuit Homer: We do, but there’s an exception for chemical spills and contests with a cash value of more than $200.
Burns: Smithers, is that right?
Smithers: Uh, I’ll look into it, sir. As soon as I can stop staring at Simpson with horrid fascination.
Make Swimsuit Homer Disturb Coworkers- 4hrs
Make Smithers Review the Company Dress Code- 4hrs
Smithers: I’m afraid Simpson is right, sir.
Swimsuit Homer: Woohoo!
Burns: I can’t handle this distraction. Simpson, take the day off.
Swimsuit Homer: Yes, sir!
Burns: And Smithers, unleash the chemical spill.
Smithers: But sir, Simpson has already left.
Burns: I want to burn the image out of my retinas.
The Best Laid Tans Pt. 3
Bart: Hey Homer, some of your fellow contestants are livestreaming themselves tanning.
Swimsuit Homer: What?! I don’t know what that means, but I have to do it, too!
Marge: You know, instead of just lying around tanning, we should livestream you doing something at home while you’re tanning. It’ll be funny!
Swimsuit Homer: Oooh, good idea! You can livestream me drinking a beer and watching TV.
Marge: Or you could mow the lawn!
Swimsuit Homer: How’s that going to be funny?
Lisa: You haven’t mowed in two months, and I’m pretty sure wild animals have moved in.
Bart: Let me get my phone.
Make Swimsuit Homer Mow the Yard- 4hrs
Make Bart Livestream Homer Mowing- 4hrs
The Best Laid Tans Pt. 4
Swimsuit Homer: Well that sucked.
Bart: Yeah, but you’ve risen to third place in the fan voting.
Swimsuit Homer: I didn’t know there was fan voting. I wonder what else I could do that would get votes.
Bart: I know — voters like funny, and there’s nothing funnier than a fat man on wheels.
Make Swimsuit Homer Skate Around Town- 4hrs
Make Bart Livestream Homer Skating- 4hrs
The Best Laid Tans Pt. 5
Swimsuit Homer: Well that also sucked.
Lisa: Yeah, but you got all the way to second place before the contest ended. You’re the runner-up!
Swimsuit Homer: Well, a new car would have been nice, but I can’t wait to see what the runner-up prize is! Maybe a new washer-dryer set or a trip to Acapulco…
Bart: Or maybe a gym membership so that swimsuit actually fits.
Make Swimsuit Homer Wait Impatiently for His Prize- 4hrs
Hugh Jass: Mr. Simpson, congratulations on being the Sunshine Suntan contest runner-up!
Swimsuit Homer: What do I get? A motorcycle? A Caribbean vacation? One of those giant cardboard checks for a million dollars?
Hugh Jass: What? If the grand prize is a new car, why would second prize be a million dollars? No, it’s none of those things. Actually, to celebrate the merger of Sunshine Suntan Lotion with Amalgamated Industrial Chemicals, you win an all-inclusive Crypto Cruise around a floating server farm in the North Sea…
Swimsuit Homer: But that’s a total scam!
Hugh Jass: Exactly!
