Spring is on its way and you know what that means: Spring cleaning, disposing of your winter ramen collection, and warmer weather flooding your basement with melted snow. Well, throw that to-do list into your overflowing dumpsters because there’s a new April Fools Mann vs Machine tour in town that’s served like heated leftovers fresh out of the microwave!
— Operation Starched Silliness publicity blurb
Operation Starched Silliness is an April Fools Mann vs Machine charity tour event organized by Pineapple.TF that was announced March 31st, 2021 and is set to conclude April 18th, 2021.
For memes and references, click on an individual mission from Missions and head to the Memes and references section.
The tour resembles previous campaigns hosted by Potato's Custom MVM servers, featuring many of the same maps, with different missions, along with new maps such as Thematic and Ventus.
In keeping with the short duration of the community event, one simple, short tour was offered, with only one medal in reward.
This table shows the missions that were available during the event. Every mission was of intermediate difficulty.
This event has two medals up for grabs. Players who had completed at least six missions in full were awarded the Mashed Mediocrity Potato. In addition, players who donate five dollars or more to the Doctors Without Borders COVID-19 charity drive are awarded the Curious Carbon medal.
The Potato Lookalike reuses the model for the participation medal previously awarded in Operation Memes vs Machines and Operation Mashed Mediocrity, while the Curious Carbon reuses the model for the Tempered Tourmaline medal from Operation Madness vs Machines; however, the Curious Carbon medal initially drops with a special diamond blue color applied that is not otherwise available in-game.
Each medal has two styles, named "Style 1" and "Style 2" for the Potato Lookalike medal, and "Normal" and "Gem Only" for the Curious Carbon medal. The Potato Lookalike's Style 1 depicts the potato with its parasol, while Style 2 depicts it wearing the parasol like a hat. The Curious Carbon's Normal Style depicts the gem being gripped by a robot hand, while the Gem Only style removes the hand, leaving only the diamond gemstone.
