The War of Art episode tie-in features a premium item: The Strupo Statue. For twenty donuts, you can have a small statue of a liquor bottle that provides 0.50% bonus money and XP to all Jobs.
According to the episode, Strupo is the official drink of Isla Verde. Its slogan is, “Lose everything.” The server at Café Artiste, which sells Gelato (like every other store on Isla Verde), describes Strupo as, “a liquor made of fermented capers.” Homer describes it as, “not delicious.” The end of the episode features a sketch on Strupo: it’s been called the “grey troll, brine of madness, and angels’ urine.”
Originally, Strupo was used to dissolve seagull corpses. Strupo is “a drink of last resort.” With these ringing endorsements, the question for you—which you’ll need to make quickly, as this limited item could disappear anytime—is whether to buy or pass on the Strupo Statue. Here are some pros and cons to consider.
- Limited time (probably won’t be back again)
- Cool statue, if you like statues of liquor bottles
- Gives a small bonus to money and XP
- Can buy as many as you want
- It does nothing in terms of animation or sound
- It is small
- Hard to place (not sure what else in the town goes with a liquor bottle)
- Costs 20 donuts
Unless you collect bottles, really enjoyed the Strupo humor in the episode, or are a completionist, I think the Strupo Statue is probably a pass. There are other ways to get a 0.50% bonus to jobs that might be more valuable in your town. Then again, it is a limited item and if you don’t buy now, then it could disappear forever!
