In the episode of The Simpsons titled ‘Homie the Clown,’ Louie the mobster prepares to fire on Homer for various complicated reasons — but before doing so, he asks his boss Fat Tony if he should shoot Homer ‘gangland style or execution style.’ Fat Tony pulls his cigar out of his mouth and tells Louie to listen to his heart. Since we can all use a mob boss’s advice from time to time, EA is giving you a brief chance to acquire Fat Tony in The Simpsons: Tapped Out.
To get Fat Tony to move into your neighborhood and send property values tumbling like so many of Krusty’s clown college students, simply fire up the game between now and Sunday. Incidentally, a new episode of The Simpsons starring Fat Tony will air on Sunday evening.
The Simpsons: Tapped Out is also offering you the chance to buy Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons with in-game currency, or with hard currency (donuts). Your choices include Itchy, Scratchy, Santa’s Little Helper, Snowball II, and Blinky the three-eyed fish. Gotta inflate ‘˜em all.
