  • No! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

    You can't do this! This can't be happening!

  • I agree, they held 205 together, they need the praise really.

  • I was going to make this thread, with like, pictures, a history, and an in-depth analysis of the tokens, but whatever I guess I won't now.

  • Feel free to add that history and analysis here... I guess most people just didn't get them in the episode.

  • I have three soul train tokens. I told my brother to go to hell today and he stole one and I spent an hour trying to get it back.

    I can't believe I made more than one person want to do this. I give up. I'm going to make an appreciation thread about the most obscure thing I can think of to do with Sam & Max...

  • Finally a place to worship my SoulTrainToken.

    Dang, I woulda' loved to of seen that!

  • Right it looks like the Highway is starting a rivalling thread for weasel on a stick. Its a complete mockery of everything that the soul train tokens stand for! As such, I provide a brief explanation of how they work for the unenlightened.

    Step One - You die
    Step Two - You receive your Soul Train Token
    Step Three - You must find and give your Soul Train Token to Death
    Step Four - You board the Soul Train
    Step Five - Ride the Soul Train to your final destination

    Soul Train Tokens were first invented in 1864 by Satan as a handy way of ensuring that nobody could ride to their final destination without being dead. The Soul Train was subsequently invented in 1865 when they realised that they didn't have a way to get the people there.

    The role of Death was created and given to Bessie the Cow in 1873 as a quick way of getting the soul train tokens to their desired location and avoiding having ghosts roaming the streets. Since then, there have been a total of 585 Deaths all of whom quit the role for its poor health benefits and long working hours.

    The Soul Train Tokens were specially designed by the Shambling Corporate Presence who is well known as a contributing artist to the modern world. SCP then manufactured a total of 144.5 billion tokens which are still being used all around the world today. The first ever person to use one of these tokens was H.D.Maximmilian, Max's great great great great grandfather who impaled himself on the Washington Monument after solving a case.
