*According to [[l33t Interview|a 2001 interview with Stephan of WTFiml33t.com]], the reason this toon was taken off the site was: "The characters are completely different. Saying and doing things they'd never do now." However, in [[Club Aquatica Interview - 29 Oct 2003|a later interview]], it is mentioned that The Brothers Chaps "can't disclose why [Marshmallow's Last Stand and [[A Jumping Jack Contest]]] are off, it's a personal reason."

*Similarly, Strong Mad's [[HR:smsticker.html|sticker page]] places him at 900 pounds. Despite the obvious exaggeration, with Strong Bad and Strong Mad's supposed weight, this places Strong Bad at about 999,100 pounds.

===Remarks===
 
-
*Homestar tells Pom Pom the marshmallows are great before having visibly tried them.
 
*Although Strong Sad appears in the toon, he isn't referred to as one of [[The Brothers Strong]]. This might be because Strong Sad was disowned by Strong Bad and Strong Mad, according to an old Characters page that was drawn in the same style as this toon.
