Dont forget the most obvious, it would cost more money. Sony was obviously not giving any more money to Al so I doubt theyd pay for bonus content

The major lack of supplemental things for Madatory Fun is that there was no Al-TV.

That would've kept the hype train a-chuggin' for sure.

Just in case you don't usually go to the Polls & Games section of this forum, be sure to check out Mandatory Fun Survivor.
We're currently on the second round, with one new round going up every week. Be sure to cast your vote to help us determine the forum-wide ranking of the album.
Right now we have a highly contentious tie for the 11th best track between Sports Song and Mission Statement.

... Of which, Sports Song is clearly inferior.

Something just occurred to me: One of my big (first world) problems with the Alpocalypse album was that it contained so many scatological jokes, which I'm not really a big fan of. By contrast, MF hardly has ANY bathroom humor. I think the closest it comes is the bilabial fricative sound effect (AKA fart noise) during the "let it all out" portion of the polka, but that doesn't bother me too much.

Yeah, come to think of it 5 Alpocalypse songs mention poop or farting. It didn't really bother me too much, but it being a bit more discrete on MF is probably better. NTWICP is the only song with a scatalogical joke, the fart sound in Scream & Shout, but it's a well-placed sound effect.

I suppose we also have the overflowing toilet line in "Handy", which in and of itself isn't really a poop joke. At least not until you see Eddie Pepitone sitting on said toilet in the music video....

I sure don't mind the reduction in poop jokes. That one line completely ruins "If That Isn't Love" for me, which I otherwise like a lot.

Ditto. Such a great song, but I cringe when I have to sing that line during my car karaoke sessions.
