    Yes, but the ''Super Secret Bonus'' mentioned in this thread is another one.

    And remember, it say nothing about donuts...it's just numbers. We kinda ran wild with the donut talk :D

    No, it actually does mention donuts. This is how the code goes: bonus_taphomerbonus "you've just found the super secret bonus! btn_150donuts 150 Donuts btn_200donuts 200 Donuts btn_250donuts 250 Donuts btn_30 donuts 30 Donuts btn_75 Donuts btn_watch Watch

    That's how the code appears. I don't know where the whacking day speculation came but now that I see it, I'm pretty sure the secret bonus is the jebediah statue.

    The donut amounts just happened to appear afterwards. So what do these donut amounts correspond to?

    Yeah I've been thinking the same thing lately, especially since there are things that have been in the files for a long time, or suddenly disappear from the files. Either they do it to mess with us or they put things in that might not be coming out anytime soon. Maybe Since the people on this forum like to speculate a lot. Not every bit of info that is added to the files, is going to be used, maybe it's to throw us off track from whats really coming. Doesn't work, the people on this forum are pretty clever most of the time.

    Ah okay...the only version of the list I saw only had the numbers (no donuts mentioned) and didn't mention the "tap Homer bonus".

    This is why looking in the files is both a blessing and a curse. People find things in the files that have nothing to do with a certain update and post on here like it's fact. All it does is get people's hopes up only to be disappointed when it doesn't happen. The whole super secret bonus speculation was basically started by 1 person who felt the need to post about it every single day during whacking day. As Shadiest_one pointed out, the words "you've just found the super secret bonus" are located directly after bonustaphomer, which means it was and always has referred to the Jebediah Statue. I understand the confusion since there is donuts amounts listed right after that, but no where in the code does it mention whacking day or is it near any whacking day file info. One wishful thinker who would not stop posting about this and getting everyone's hopes up was the only reason so many people were mad when it didnt come to fruition.

    Lol!!! I wasn't talking about you! I don't remember you mentioning it except towards the end. It was another forum member, who kept posting it in every thread and arguing with anyone who said they didn't believe it, always responding with a "Wait , you'll see, it's true" response :)

    I'm just gonna jump in and randomly ask: Could it be to do with Sideshow Bob since he's been appearing so much? Or maybe EA were planning something like that? You do have to tap him sort of like you had to tap Homer.

    I don't know... It's late...
