Should we consider this a [[Non-Inverted Questions|non-inverted question]], a [[Jumbled Words|word jumble]] or [[Deliberately Poor English|Engrish]]? Though inverting inverting the question's noun and verb it still doesn't make sense, however then it could be considered Engrish ("How did you at?" could mean "How did you it?— Wait. It could just be Engrish itself for "How you do it?" I'm slightly confused on what we should put this under. --[[Special:Contributions/75.5.176.233|75.5.176.233]] 23:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Censorship?

The floating endorsement on Strong Bad's hat is a reference to late night advertisements that use a similar technique to censor parts of the screen.

I thought they just stuck that floating logo in because the generic endorsement is obviously prerecorded and is used to make it relevant. Nothing to do with censorship. – The Chort 18:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

You're right. No further discussion necessary, it's just completely incorrect. Consider it gone. OptimisticFool 18:53, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
The reason I added that reference is because it looks suspiciously like the Girls Gone Wild The external website linked here contains offensive language and/or content. content warning spots that show up on overnight TV, which also fits with the style of the informercial parody. The reason I phrased it that way was to prevent having a link to a site containing nudity and inappapriate content. wbwolf (t | ed) 21:34, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
This is digitally pasting a logo onto Strong Bad's hat. That is censoring. Not even vaguely similar, save that both are done in post production. Oh, and the way SB's hat-logo doesn't follow his motion very well. --Belthazar 21:39, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Weird talking narrators?

Should that be a running gag? It seems that most fake commercials on Homestar Runner have narrators with a tenuous grasp on the English language. -Stinkoman KTalk 23:18, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Where else does this happen? I don't find any announcers in these commercials so far to have low-English skills. --75.5.176.233 02:24, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

"How you did at"

Should we consider this a non-inverted question, a word jumble or Engrish? Though inverting inverting the question's noun and verb it still doesn't make sense, however then it could be considered Engrish ("How did you at?" could mean "How did you it?— Wait. It could just be Engrish itself for "How you do it?" I'm slightly confused on what we should put this under. --75.5.176.233 23:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

  • It sounds vaguely like a Southernism (like "What it be" or whatever that nonsensical question is that became "How are you doing"). Danny Lilithborne 02:50, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Plastique

consider adding a real world refference about plastique. I'm pretty sure it's old slang for plastic explosive. — 71.228.22.20 (Talk | contribs) 01:59, 9 December 2008 (left unsigned)

I think its a play on trademarks or fancy names for fancy things. Even then, it seems like a stretch. --75.5.176.233 02:24, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

I removed a reference to the cover of the Kraftwerk single Tour de France. Although the designs are indeed similar, they're basic enough that it could easily be a coincidence. — It's dot com 02:34, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
