trivia: From the beginning in 1998, Celebrity Goo Game had a tradition that each goo was a single individual, never multiple people. This rule was first relaxed at GooCon: Champions Gate in 2010, when a "Double Trouble" theme brought twins into the game. (The Olsen twins were the only pair re-used in this theme on this site.) After several more multiple-person themes at GooCon, the rule was finally broken on the site with this goo, the 2343rd in game history and first with multiple people.
