'''Couch mumbling''' is the phenomenon that occurs primarily when [[Strong Bad]] is asleep on [[the couch]] in [[Basement of the Brothers Strong|the Brothers Strong's basement]] and, in addition to incomprehensible muttering, mutters the names of [[Nintendo]] (usually those for the [[Wikipedia:Super Nintendo|Super Nintendo]]) video games [[Wikipedia:Somniloquy|in his sleep]]. A variation on this also occurred in [[Jibblies 2]] when Strong Bad fell onto the couch as he was recovering from a fit of [[Jibblies|the jibblies]]. While this [[Running Gags|running joke]] is similar to video game titles like those found on the labels of the [[Floppy Disk Container]], those games are generally older and less well-known than the titles Strong Bad mumbles. In [[Homestar Ruiner]], Strong Bad mentions a game made by [[Videlectrix]], [[RhinoFeeder]] (which Strong Bad dreamt up in the [[Strong Bad Email]] [[video games]]), rather than a real-world game (probably for copyright reasons, as an IGN trailer for Homestar Ruiner reveals that Strong Bad originally mentioned [[Wikipedia:Super Punch-Out!!|Super Punch-Out!!]]). In [[8-Bit Is Enough]], Rhino Feeder was again mentioned; however, this time Strong Bad was nowhere near his couch. Instead, he was sleeping outside (apparently knocked out), showing the first instance of couch mumbling away from the couch, with the second being [[Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2]].
