So, it’s nearing the end of February and y’all know what that means, right? Fat Tuesday! The day it’s ok to be fat on Tuesday. Ok, maybe not that but it does mean that Mardis Gras aka the “Carnival season” is coming soon. Whether just celebrating the day before the Christian Ash Wednesday (1st day of Lent) or encompassing the entire period from Kings day (Epiphany) to Fat Tuesday, it is pretty well known for costumes, masks, defiance of social conventions, parades, and beads, can’t forget the beads. Not sure how far back the beads go but the actual event can be traced back to Medieval history.
Reader Seapeach1 had asked if we’d talk about it here at Addicts and I thought it was a great idea. While I doubt EA will tie in this event with the game, it’s always nice to revisit Simpsons episodes and like Bart Simpson says, “Mardi Gras, man. When the Big Easy calls, ya gotta accept the charges.”

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things. These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Once a week we’ll be posting a Caption This!

Hey Howdy Hey Ghost Busters!
Feels like it’s been a while since we’ve been here huh? We unlocked the Frog Prince back on October 22nd and now here we are almost 2 weeks later at our 5th and FINAL Community GOO prize King Homer’s Skyscraper! Congratulations Tappers!
Looks like EA has saved the best for last. The Skyscraper is one of the coolest building additions (at least in this Addict’s opinion) in the game.
