I found out the other day that someone did not want to upgrade to EP2 because the icon has Lumpy in a distressed state. Compared to the Pilot Episode, where Lumpy is all smiles. She didn't not want to see an electrified state of cute and adorable Lumpy.
We've realized that some people feel really bad about hurting Lumpy, because they like him so much. We even found that this feeling would even affect which Pokers they chose to use on the Lumpster. For example, MIGRAINE RELIEVER bad. PLASTIK-O FLAMINGO good.
But fear not people. Lumpy is a trained actor. We can assure that while things appear to really hurt him, it's acting! And if you're feeling bad, it just shows you that Lumpy's got the chops!
EP3's icon will be a friendlier icon ... and the update will also have more things that you can make Lumpy happy with. So those with a guilty conscious ... soon you'll be able to smoother him with good things.
When Lumpy heard that a fan didn't want to update because of the icon, he was in tears. After all, the boy spent weeks under the hot lights of the set during the production of it. He wanted to personally address her, to let her know he's okay.
Since she wrote this in Japanese, it is only fair that Lumpy replies 日本語で. Japanese after all, was the first Earthling language that he learned.
So Lumpy says to that fan 「アップグレードしませんでしょうか？お願いします。」
