Falling Back like Clockwork
Posted by Karen Clockwork on November 6, 2022 at 2:30 PM
Have you ever worked in a clock shop before? Heard the ticking of a thousand pendulums, barraging your ears with a funky rhythm? It does some things to the mind of a Toon. Changes the way you think about a second of time. Removes your sense of rhythm, apparently. I think I can see time itself.
Or maybe that’s just all the clocks on the wall.
Hello, hi, howdy, hey. I’m Karen Clockwork, Toontown’s premier clocksmith. Never heard of me? Figures. Who set up all the Party Clocks in Toontown? That’s me. Who set the clock in your Shticker Book? Also me. I am everywhere. Or everywhen. Everyhow?
As your resident premier clocksmith, it’s my pleasure to remind you that our clocks are falling back today. I’ve been up all night changing each of my seven-hundred-thousand clocks. Just one hour adds up.
This may be one of the last times we do this together, Toons. The times are a’ changing, and the clocks must continue ticking into the future. Why would they do this to me? Who are they?
Changing the clocks is, like, the only thing I get to do every year.
They say a broken clock is right twice a day. I, Karen Clockwork, am only right during my two times of changing the clocks every year. That makes me wrong, does it not? Am I to descend into madness? Or perhaps I am to just continue selling clocks, same as I always have.
Regardless, nothing I do can stop that next second from ticking forward. So it goes.
Can I interest you in a Grandfather Clock?
Sorry! Comments are closed.
I love Karen Clockwork!! But why are all the clocks behind her set to different times? She seems bad at her job.
Poor Karen. She might have to clock out after this.
Surlee's watch is on the table, what's it doing here?
I would certainly like to have a clock of some sort in my Estate house someday.
That clock in the bottom left corner looks familiar... what does TTR have planned?!
Yes please! I would like one to decorate my house!
Why not change the cogs’ clocks instead, just to mess up their schedule? You can’t invade Toontown if you’re late!
Hmmm, is "This may be one of the last times we do this together" a hint towards something coming in the future?
I would Love A Grandfather Clock! "Time is Ticking"! I Love All of you toons out there! Remember "Toons Of The World Unite".
I've never thought how difficult it must be to change every clock in Toontown, but it's worth it for that extra hour of sleep! (Also, that pocket watch on the table looks dangerou-I mean familiar. Do I smell LLLOOOOORRE? ahahaha)
I could use a grandfather clock! hope she doesn't knock on her flock from all those clocks!
Hahahaha poor karen clockwork why doesn’t she have help?
I agree with CJ mcwhatzit. Lets mess up the cog’s clocks!
I love Toontown. Its so fun.
I hope Karen gets a decent amount of sleep each night, because something tells me those clocks are doing something to her sleep schedule...
Feel bad for Karen. hopefully she'll be rich with jellybeans in the future!
Maybe we should help her. and this might bring some good ideas for new toon tasks
Time is a tool you can put on the wall or wear it on your wrist-
Hmm I wonder what this is hinting at!!
I wonder if there is some kind of message/code hidden in this anouncement? The times on the clocks on the wall, the idiocyncratic speech, the clock on the table -- is it all just coincidence? :)
I wonder if this is hinting at any new update involving clocks? Maybe different timezones displayed depending on where you are?
