Sources later revealed that Lumptacious Hrudkovity, also known by his peers as “Lumpy,” had been approached as a potential stunt double candidate for Blue. Blue reportedly said, “I was playing the new iPhone and iPod touch reality game show QuitIt! when I saw this blobby-looking blue guy. At first, I thought I was looking at a mirror image of myself. But after I looked closely, I realized this blue guy was the only one good enough to be my stunt double.”
Mr. Hrudkovity could not be reached for comment. However, his agent issued the statement that “While it’s true that we’ve been approached by the Blue M&M’s people about a project, we haven’t committed to anything yet.”
His agent further added, “Obviously, my client’s skin tone is much paler than the Blue M&M’s hard candy shell. However, my client has indicated that he would consider undergoing blue augmentation therapy if his role required it.” When asked about the safety of the procedure, his agent quipped, “Scientists recently discovered that Brilliant Blue G, the coloring agent used in the augmentation therapy as well as the color in Blue’s delicious melt in your mouth but not in your hands candy shell, may potentially mend spinal injuries. If it’s good enough for candy and spines, it’s good enough for my client.”

Today, representative Lumptacious Hrudkovity from the planet Zgrunturos addressed a Special Session of the United Nations. Mr. Hrudkovity, known simply by his peers as “Lumpy,” shocked the assembly when he deviated from the session’s agenda of “Intergalactic Relations: Is It Good?”
Mr. Hrudkovity instead chose to thank his fans in the United Kingdom and Canada for reviewing his virtual game show QuitIt! on the iTunes App Store. QuitIt!, now available for the iPhone and the iPod touch, aired for the first time this past week.
Mr. Hrudkovity indicated he was deeply moved by the response of his fans. He assured everyone during his speech that he is a professional and that he could “take it.” He also asked all of his fans keep on poking and to help spread the word about QuitIt! and to encourage others to join the QuitIt! community.
At this point, frantic U.N. officials turned off the public address system, only to discover that Mr. Hrudkovity was speaking through a translator elsewhere in the room. Having no other options, security guards wrestled Mr. Hrudkovity to the ground. Ironically, Mr. Hrudkovity’s last words before being taken away from the General Assembly hall was his infamous tag line “Quit It!”
After the altercation, the identity of the translator was determined to be Mr. Hrudkovity’s own agent, who refused to divulge his name. When asked why Mr. Hrudkovity changed his speech at the last second, his agent simply replied, “This interview is over.” However, before leaving the General Assembly hall, the agent yelled out, “QuitIt! is now available at the iTunes App Store!”
When asked whether or not Mr. Hrudkovity is here on Earth as a legal alien, the Obama Administration made assurances they were looking into the matter and issued the statement "While at this time we cannot confirm the legality of Mr. Hrudkovity's presence on Earth, we are certain his agent followed the proper quarantine protocol to bring him here." They further added, "President Obama is aware of Mr. Hrudkovity and happens to be a fan."

QuitIt! Arrives: The Pocket God Descendants?I thought I’d never see the day where a new app comes in and captures me like Pocket God did. 2n Productions have proven me wrong with QuitIt!
Finally, we have QuitIt!, a game so ridiculous that it's downright awesome.

We’ve noticed over the last week or so that we’re having a bit of a “lost in translation” problem.
The first signs of this communication problem came in the form of one our interns complaining about Lumpy’s alien language. Had we paid more attention back then, we would have figured out that Lumpy was actually speaking Japanese.
What should have been the real wake-up call for us was the sign that Lumpy had made to congratulate the Promo Code Contest winners.
We did a bit of digging, and we discovered the reason for this intergalactic communication mess.
As it turns out, Lumpy studied Japanese before he came to Earth from Zgrunturos.
Lumpy’s agent told him that he was going to be starring in a game show on Earth. Based on that information, Lumpy started to research game shows on Earth. During his research, Lumpy discovered Japanese game shows and got hooked on them because he thought they were the most cutting edge programming he could find on the planet.
After watching hours and hours of Japanese game show footage, Lumpy wound up thinking that everyone on Earth spoke Japanese. So, in an effort to prepare for his debut on Earth, Lumpy took various online crash courses in the Japanese language.
So, the semi-good news is that Lumpy can communicate a little bit with his fans in Japan. The bad news is that until Lumpy gets up to speed in English, we’re stuck with his agent interpreting or translating for him.

In addition to his fans in Mexico and the United States, Lumpy would like to thank his new fans in Great Britain, Canada, Italy, Japan, France, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Singapore!
Lumpy says he would really appreciate your review of his show in the iTunes App Store so that he can improve his performance technique! If you enjoy QuitIt! please spread the world!
Help Lumpy's star shine so he can become the first true intergalactic star and reach #1 in the App Store!

Lumpy got word today that QuitIt! is being downloaded by fans in Mexico.
He wanted to express his deepest gratitude to his fans in Mexico, who are the first international viewers of the QuitIt! show.
The production staff would also like to extend a heart-felt “muchas gracias” to our supporters in Mexico.
But Lumpy's enjoyment of this moment seemed short-lived as he overheard someone on the production staff talking about getting a burrito from a Mexican joint down the street for dinner.

We apologize for the delay in updating you, but it took a bit of coaxing to get our star on stage due to the Burrito Incident this morning. He came out only after we told him that his show was now live.
Lumpy wanted send out a personal message to all his fans checking out his blog, but we need his agent to interpret for us from Zgrunturian to English.
Unfortunately for us, Lumpy’s agent is nowhere to be found…so one of our interns improvised and made a sign for the Lumpster.
In any event, for around the cost of a latte, get more stimulation from QuitIt! without the need for that inevitable bathroom break.
Unlike buying a latte from your fave place, you can be sure you’ll get free “refills” through our free updates that’ll add more poking pleasure and hi-larious antics to QuitIt! in the coming months. It’ll leave you wondering why they don’t give you free refills!
Poke on over to the iTunes App Store and download QuitIt! while its hot!
Help Lumpy become the first true intergalactic star! Check out Lumpy’s profile on Facebook (search for “Lumpy Hrudkovity”) and add him as a friend. He’s waiting breathlessly for your fan mail!

Lumpy brought his own food replicator with him from Zgrunturos, but he forgot to bring the microfusion powercells to run the unit. He's been surviving on a diet of Lumpy-Ohhs and energy bars that he also brought with him from his planet.
Unfortunately, that stash is almost gone.
So, our star decided that it was time for him to try some Earth food today. The show's production staff was getting Mexican for lunch, so Lumpy opted to get a simple bean and cheese burrito based on our advice.
Lumpy enjoyed his burrito and thought it was absolutely delish.
Unfortunately, the burrito didn't really agree with him a couple of hours later. We jokingly mentioned Montezuma's Revenge to explain his gastric distress.
Lumpy was asking all afternoon long why this being named Montezuma was after him...

After his initial breakthrough on the Lumpy-Ohhs commercial, Lumpy got an offer from a galactic network vidcaster who was looking for a kid to star in a new family situation comedy.
The director of the sitcom wanted a cute and endearing young lump for her show - a youngster who could think on his feet and deliver cute, yet snarky one-liners, just like in Lumpy’s popular breakfast treat commercial.
This was the beginning of Lumpy’s salad days.

Lumpy's been saying that he's suffering from mild panic attacks. We don’t think he wants to admit to it, but we suspect he’s got a little case of stage fright. We're pretty sure it’s not a big deal, as he's an old pro. He's just a bit nervous since he hasn't been on a live stage in a while.
At any rate, we don't want to set up our buddy to fail, so we decided to look for some professional help. Professional help in the form of an acting coach, that is.
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to find someone within our production budget yet, but Mr. Aaron Speiser would probably be the perfect coach for our star, if money was no object.
While our search continues for an acting coach, here are some inspirational words from the world renowned acting coach to the stars, Aaron Speiser:
Lumpy was a child star on his home planet of Zgrunturos. He got his first showbiz break by appearing on a commercial for a breakfast treat.
Most Zgrunturians have fond memories of a young Lumpy and his catchy slogan from the commercial- “It’s lumperrific!” (translated loosely from Zgrunturian by his agent).

Lumpy is our intrepid visitor from planet Zgrunturos, and he’s starring in his own virtual game show broadcasting live on your iPhone or iPod touch.
In QuitIt! you get to channel your inner older sibling and tease Lumpy by poking him to win cold hard cash. Use the moolah to buy other unique and bizarre items to pokify the Lumpster. Crank the tease factor to eleven by buying and giving Lumpy twisted gifts that are much more than meets the eye.
