Fun Facts

Explanations

  • The sticky note on the wall reads "ASAP!!!", which is an acronym for "As Soon As Possible."

Remarks

  • Doge was the title given to the rulers of the Italian city-states of Venice and Genoa.
  • Strong Bad seems to have a Tandy Radio Shack 80 2 (TRS-80 II) as his office computer.
  • The computer monitor Strong Bad is sitting at is an Apple IIe monitor, given away by its adjustable viewing angle screen.
  • Unlike most of the other features on homestarrunner.com, this was released on a Friday. Normally, everything is released on Monday (except the Quote of the Week, the Sketchbook, and the Weekly Fanstuff). This is most likely because of "Business Casual Friday".

Goofs

  • After Homestar bangs his head on Strong Bad's keyboard, the "ASAP!!!" note is relocated. After the computer displays the system error message, the sticky note is back in its original place.
  • After the Flamboyant System Error appears, the next cut shows the computer monitor from an angle. While Homestar is saying "Anyways, I'll let you finish up here. See you at six!", twice you can see Strong Bad's head go behind the superimposed image of the error screen.
