We are finally at the final Prize of Act 2, which as I have intimated in other posts, has absolutely nothing to do with the Zoo…or the Great Plains…or Baboons or much of anything with this event.
But...it is a FULL CHARACTER!
T-Rex is from a completely unrelated, yet pretty darn funny episode that pokes fun at Portland Hipsters. And let’s face it…there is plenty to laugh about when it comes to Portland Hipsters. You don’t find these types in almost any other place in the world (except maybe Georgetown/Brooklyn, NY), but you will now find at least ONE of the family that moves in next to the Simpsons in the episode that brings the “Coolest” kid ever… T-Rex.
No. He isn’t a dinosaur. He is a kid. And now…you HAVE HIM!
Again…with the woot, woot! (which is an expression that nobody who is really cool would ever use).
I give up. When I started to do a Where Did That Come From post for some of the main characters we win or can buy in this event, I realized quickly that EA and the Writers are REALLY reaching into their huge grab bag of random characters to come up with the offerings for “Moe’s Ark.” People keep asking why it’s named that. I suspect now that it has to do with the “Two of Everything” concept.
And I get it. We have more than 600 different episodes from which to pull…so why not just close your eyes and reach into the bag, and see if you can make it work with the Event Theme (that someone most likely came up with while doing the same sort of word game).
And not to take away from the overall outcome, like a good Gumbo, it’s not so much that all of the parts actually make sense, its how you use them. But, trying to make some connections to the episodes and the title? Uhm…not so much.
Let’s break down where some of the Primary Prize Characters came from. But, I’m warning you…if you are looking for “Moe” or “Ark” or even “Zoo” in the titles…you are going to be confused. Continue reading →
