With Gil and his day-old donuts here and Squidport on the way, it’s easy to forget that the Yard Sale to mark the end of season 24 of the series in the US is still going on. Homer very unkindly calls the selection of items on offer “junk”, and it may well be the right term for some of this rather odd selection of items.
So, on the basis that many of you have Gil’s donuts burning a hole in your pocket, is any of it worth buying? Here’s what you said in the poll that ran on this site over the last 10-ish days:
Duff Party Bus: 47.13%
Duff-Barney Blimp: 22.6%
Frink’s Robot Dog: 15.56%
Frinkosonic MHV: 5.3%
Excellence Prize Statue: 4.74%
Inflatable Gorilla and Baboons: 2.82%
Giant Grasshopper: 1.85%
The poll makes the Duff Party Bus a clear winner, but if you’d like to make up your own mind, you can take a look at the following posts:
What episode is the Excellence Prize Statue from and should I spend my donuts on it?
What episode is the Inflatable Gorilla and Baboons from and should I spend my donuts on them?
What episode is the Frinkosonic MHV from and should I spend my donuts on it?
What episode is the Giant Grasshopper from and should I spend my donuts on it?
Should I spend my donuts on Frink’s Robot Dog?
What episode is the Duff Party Bus from and should I spend my donuts on it?
What episode is the Duff-Barney Blimp from and should I spend my donuts on it?
Remember, the Yard Sale items are likely to only available until Wednesday or Thursday US and you may never have the chance to add them to your game again. Although, honestly, for at least a couple of items, that’s unlikely to generate much crying, wailing or gnashing of teeth.
Note that ANIMATION on FOX have now taken down some of the videos used in some of the posts.
