    My ex was annoyed with me because I'd open and close it now and then because I also thought Homer was funny. :)

    Just to hear Homer? I can't say I've done that. I do close it when there's a task like the current "stonecutter secret bonus" that makes the pointy finger pop up every single time I collect any event currency. (Halloween and, I think, Christmas both had similar tasks.)

    I do it a couple of times, usually after I forgot that it made a sound after I accidentally tap it closed. :lol:

    When my 2 yr old sits on my lap while I am playing, he absolutely loves hearing the characters so I find myself tapping the task book numerous times just to get him to squeal in delight. He loves hearing Homer, and also Bart and Moe the most

    Never thought about closing the book to stop the pop up popping up. Great tip!

    Once you hit 35000 you get the super secret bonus which means you have a task open and every time you collect emblems (automatically or otherwise) the annoying finger pops up to point at the task to say conditions have changed

    My younger son and I would use Homer's "Task book open!/ Task book closed!/ Task book open!/ Task book closed!" as a rap, and maybe even dance a little to it. That drives the hubby crazy, but every now and then he uses phrases from the game to communicate with me. Personally, I'm always asking the kids "Where are the dodge balls?" for no reason.

    At work, a few of us who play TSTO will also throw out a catchphrase or two during normal conversation. It's hilarious when I give instructions and one big, burly guy responds with "Aw, work? I thought this was a game!" Or even better - a high-pitched "I don't like this game!" :mrgreen:

    My 14 yr old used that Homer line yesterday when I asked him to empty the dishwasher. After he got done, he said "another job mediocrely done". Lol

    Lol. Nice stories. If I said any lines from this game to my parents, they would give me a look that says "Boy, are u stupid?" Neither of them are really into the Simpsons like I am.

    My kids drive me nuts at times saying things they pick up in games, but I won't lie, whenever he says that line for something, I laugh
