[edit] Oh, tap your toes and check your NQSBemail...

"Tip-tapping" might be an allusion to Strong Bad's secret identity "Tip Tappers".

From: Sbemail 150?!?
Posted on: 23:28, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Arguments for:

  • The two phrases are very similar.
  • secret identity is recent and probably fresh in TBC's minds.
  • Although this phrase turns up quite a few results on a Google search, it's not really that common of a phrase, and certainly (to my knowledge) is not used elsewhere by TBC.

Arguments against:

  • Tip-tap could also just be simple onomatopoeia for the sounds of the keyboard being used.
    • It certainly seems, IMHO, that it is just talking about his typing, not referencing Tip Tappers.
  • This is a common phrase, as evidenced by a Google Search.

Additional comments:

  • Suggesting a reword to note that this term was used fairly recently, even if it's not a direct reference.
    • Is two months ago really recent enough to be noteworthy?
      • I think it is: they only come out with about four toons a month.
        • I don't think it's a matter of how many toons they come out with; it's a matter of how much time has passed.
  • Maybe add a "might be"?
    • I made the change to "may be"; I don't think this interferes with the intent of the fact enough to warrant a revision. If it affects your vote, please move it accordingly.

[edit] Ghostly Sounds

The wind sound at the email's beginning is the same as the one used in ghosts.

From: Sbemail 150?!?

Arguments for:


Arguments against:

  • And a bunch of other things. It's a commonly reused sound effect, and this belongs on the Sound Effects page. There's not even any reason to STUFF this.
    • Actually, the Sound Effects page does occasionally need to link somewhere else, I think. It seems re-ZON-able.
      • If that's the case, then there needs to be some slight editting. But as it stands, it's just gonna open the floodgate for dozens upon dozens of other similar fun facts. Why accept one sound effect mention and reject many others?
    • We don't mention common sound effects anywhere else unless there's something noteworthy about them.
      • And this one is no more noteworthy than any other instance of it.
        • What about Homsar's walking noise?
          • Homsar's walking noise is noteworthy because it is particularly unusual, and a defining characteristic of that character. Things that are more commonplace (or have more common causes) aren't all that noteworthy.

Additional comments:

  • If anything, it should note its use in Not the 100th Email!!! instead of ghosts, as Not the 100th Email and Sbemail 150 use a similar premise.
