just had a cool idea on how EA should end this event

EA- ugh fine if you already have all the prizes then you get 20 free doughnuts which you can spend on currency for our next event which will be even more rigged then this one
Homer- whoo hoo!
I loled for real :lol:

    Ok so as you know we did not get a free item for Easter which I thought was strange because this is the first time we did not get something for a holiday. Then I thought of something that would make us all happy. What if at the end of the event they give us one box item free? Here is some dialog that could happen to trigger this.

    Homer- oh boy oh boy oh boy
    Lisa- Whats got you so excited dad?
    Homer- Today's Easter and EA always gives free stuff on holidays
    Homer- I wonder what we will get maybe the monorail or sideshow bob!
    Lisa- I hate to break it to you dad but its May 13th Easter was weeks ago
    Homer- WHAT!!! BUT WE GOT NOTHING FOR EASTER!!!
    Homer- ALSO I WASTED SO MUCH TIME GETTING THESE STUPID BOXES AND GOT NOTHING GOOD!!!
    Homer- I'M GOING TO GO ON THE FORUMS AND COMPLAIN THINKING MY DISPLEASURE WILL MAKE EA GO BANKRUPT!
    EA- Ok ok calm down here since we gave you nothing on Easter how about we give you one box item of your choice free!
    Homer- ooooo that sounds good but what if I missed more then one prize
    EA- Well for a limited time you can buy them with doughnuts!
    Homer- What if I already have all the prizes?
    EA- ugh fine if you already have all the prizes then you get 20 free doughnuts which you can spend on currency for our next event which will be even more rigged then this one
    Homer- whoo hoo!


    then we are taken to a screen where we can pick one item we want and then we can buy the rest for doughnuts after. I highly doubt this will happen but hey I think we need something after an event like this but I think it will most likely be that either the event will be extended by seven days or we get a Gill sale. Also I think it would be funny if EA mentions how much we complained for this event because I love when they break the fourth wall especially when they make fun of us :)
    Totally epic, and well written as well! +9001! :thumbup: Almost too good...you don't happen to work for EA or anything, do you? :lol:

    brilliant post OP - definately ranks up there with my sarcastic one yesterday about how EA will mock us when this event ends, what i love about yours is the addition of EA to the dialogue, made me laugh and you finished it with the perfect way Homer woudl end something like this. Absolutley love it :thumbup: :)

    Won't happen. I have a feeling the head of who makes these events has changed and this new person is ruthless.

    I'm secretly hoping this thing ends with a message that says "Here's all the remaining prizes you need. Next time we have an event, don't take to the message boards saying you blew all your donuts to finish it in three days then proceed to trash it's length and excitement." Since this is the only event I won't even come close to finishing, this is the only logical explanation for me :-)
