A blog dedicated to the popular mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out
Building the new high school is only the first step in a comical quest line involving mostly Principal Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers. Once these three parts of the quest are complete you’ll unlock the ability to build the Springfield Knowledgeum. It is the most expensive building in the game required for the story to continue, with an asking price of $379,500. If you’re struggling for cash, you may want to hold off until the next update. Building prices tend to get cheaper as new content for the game is released.
Lisa: Principal Skinner? Have you ever thought about what comes after all this?
Skinner: Do you mean the afterlife? Yes, I’ve got it all figured out.
Skinner: Heaven will be me and mother sitting in comfy recliners, and I have control of the TV remote.
Skinner: Hell is the same, but she gets to pick the shows.
Lisa: No, I meant what comes after we graduate from Springfield Elementary. We need a high school!
Skinner: When you have only one school in town, you only need a principal to run it.
Skinner: But with two schools, we’ll need a… a… superintendent.
Chalmers: And poof, like magic, here I am.
Chalmers: Well, Seymour, I see you’re performing your duties to the usual high standard of sickening incompetence.
Skinner: Thank you, sir. As you can see, we still only have a handful of students at Springfield Elementary. It’s lovely.
Chalmers: Yes, I’d almost forgotten how peaceful it is when the entire student body gets blown to Kingdom Come. We’ll have to do it more often.
Chalmers: But for now, let’s roll up our sleeves and get educating!
Chalmers: We’ll start with the foundation of any strong liberal arts education –standardized test-taking.
Chalmers: Seymour, these test scores are abominable! In science, we got the lowest aggregate score ever recorded!
Skinner: It could be argued that, by establishing a new worst, we have in fact made a major contribution to science.
Chalmers: It could be so argued by an idiot.
Skinner: But my point stands.
Chalmers: This is unacceptable, Skinner! Get out of my office while I think on what to do about this!
Skinner: It’s not my fault these idiot kids don’t know the difference between the decay rate of a top quark and a W boson.
Skinner: I’ve provided them with the hands-off rote memorization of atomic numbers that young brains crave. And they still don’t learn!
Lisa: Maybe we could try something a little more interactive. Do you remember the Springfield Knowledgeum?
Skinner: How could I forget it?
Skinner: I once dropped a twenty dollar bill there, and I couldn’t find it. It was one of the formative experience of my adult life.
