Hey Addicts, Caption This!

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! Twice a week we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Should I Spend Donuts On- Snow People/Animals

Once there was a snowman, snowman, snowman
Once there was a snowman, tall, tall, tall.
In the sun he melted, melted, melted.
In the sun he melted, small, small, small.

Thanks childhood songs. 🙂

With a new Holiday Update and Limited Premium items just added to our menu, it may be overwhelming trying to decide whether to buy or to pass on them. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on. Continue reading

Rounding the curve, dead last… a Christmas character

The holidays.  Snow in Springfield, Homer Santa flying overhead, Christmas Lights that don’t light up because the Brown Trash Wookiee never took them down.  You feel the spirit, right?  Reminds me of a place where a sadistic man with government experience can feel right at home.  No, not the DMV sillys, my home.  Where else would I go to write stuff for you dear reader?

With Christmas, Kwanzaa, Solstice, etc. right around the corner and Hannukah already blazing away, I thought I’d go back and talk about a character EA brought to the game during the 2012 Holiday Event.  Like Homer, I’m just a big kid and also love Christmas so much.  Without further ado, the one, the only, the non-homework eating Santa’s Little Helper aka SLH for acronym-loving tappers.

What a couple Tapperinos want…

You know, I’m always using my Addicts soap box to tell you what I want. Seemed a little unfair so I decided to change up the pace a little. Here at Addicts, we value each and every comment we get. When you’re just a tiny little blog like us, any time someone decides to take the time to write a quick blurb, it’s a real pleasure. This post is dedicated to two Addicts that stated what they wanted in comments.

On 12 Sep, I posted about Jub Jub. Jman27 commented on the post and had some rad ideas about EA making Santa’s Little Helper a better puppy in our game.

On 15 Sep, after posting about how The Simpsons is good even without sound, jamminfrog requested an article on Homer’s Ice Cream Truck.

These requests inspired this post and I’d just like to say thanks to these fans for the inspiration.
