Homer’s Stupidity Strikes Again!
Springfield, U.S.A. has blown up and it’s all Homer Simpson’s fault. He just couldn’t be bothered to get up from playing that stupid Happy Little Elves game on his myPad. Without anyone there to monitor the safety levels of the nuclear power plant, it has exploded in a ball of atomic fire and taken the whole city with it. Fortunately, not all is lost. Since ground zero is always the safest place to be in a nuclear explosion, Homer survived the cataclysm and made an interesting discovery. Springfield wasn’t exactly destroyed and her citizens were not killed; they just kind of disappeared. Thus, Homer sets out on his quest to rebuild America’s Crud Bucket and reunite with his loving family and Bart.
Naturally, he’s going to need a lot of help.
