Alright, Coach Z is clearly an adult (albeit with a funky afro) in the sbemail [[stand-up]], he thanks little marzipan for her clogging. Later, in marzipan's answering machine 5, coach Z is drunkenly propositioning her. What kinda sick pedophile is he ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Enlighten Me, but in what "Secret Page" does Coach Z have a Noid Costume on? - Everybody!

This one! --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif, 18:58, 6 June 2005 (BST)

I think the caption 'Bling-Bling indeed!' should be changed. Bling bling is more like jewelery. What CoachZ is wearing is more like the clocks Public Enemy would wear, and since he prefers old school hip hop. Bling bling is more new school, rappers such as 50 Cent, or Snoop Dogg.

Nah. It's pretty much "bling". Also, please sign your posts. Thank-you. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]

Well, Marzipan's not a child any more. More importantly, the characters aren't human, so we can't tell how they age - Coach Z could potentially be a year or two older than her. We can't start drawing human parallels with a character with no nose or mouth. --Upsilon
I speculate that Marzipan is now a teenager or in her 20's, and Coach Z is in his 40's or 50's. -Clever Ben
I speculate that Marzipan is 25 year old, and Coach Z is 30 or so. I know that is most likely wrong as with stand-up, but that's just how I always looked at them...Kvb 18:39, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
If i remember correctly, Coach Z describes himself as an 'old man' in caffeine and has ailing back problems, albeit encouraged by sleeping on a locker room bench. As such, I always regarded him as nearing late-middle age, although his penchant for hip-hop would seem contrary to this - or maybe I'm being ageist. Regardless, I think Marzipan's maturity would debunk any grounds for pedophilia accusations. Grover Junior
Just leave it alone--you're ruining the magic. -Innocent Bystander
I agree with Clever Ben about their age. Also, consider the fact that Coach is their Coach, and has been since they were kids.20X6 GEM

Okay, why is the section edit link hidden behind text? (at least for me. FireFox. But don't say anything bad about it, or I'll punch your refresh button so hard you'll be loading tomorrow's edits.) —AbdiViklas 02:57, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

It happens from time to time. A Wiki glitch, I think. Just hard-refresh while the edit link would normally be on-screen; that usually fixes it for me. And, are we a bit touchy today? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 03:00, 10 October 2005 (UTC)
LOL—no, just jealous for the honor of the One True Browser. As long as the glitch is on my side, I'll ignore it. —AbdiViklas 03:03, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Context for mispronunciations

It would be nice to link to the toon in question for each of the mispronounced words on the list. For one thing, it would make it easier to verify additions to the list, besides which it would improve its knowledge-base usefulness! —AbdiViklas 02:22, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

Swtchereroo?

Has anyone else noticed that Strong Sad and Coach Z seem to be "switching roles"? Strong Sad is much more outgoing, and Coach Z is starting to ask depressed, as in "No, I'm not alone! Yes, this phone is plugged in" (talking to himself), and more recently, "Unless Coach Z's life is a magic potion." (saying he's riuined his own life)in Halloween Potion-Ma-Jig. I'm just saying. Pretty weird. Cheatachu72

Good call. I'm not so sure Strong Sad is changing permanently, though. Although he's gone from being Eeyore to (as per prophecy) "more whiny" to, now, more of a long-suffering misunderstood-poet type. But as for Coach Z being depressing, I think that starts at least with some of those answering machine versions, particularly 8. That one sure knows how to tug at your heartstrings. (He's just such a trouper.) —AbdiViklas 23:40, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
I think you want "trooper", because "trouper" indicates someone who is part of a troupe - as in, a traveling band of performers, etc. A "trooper," in this case, is someone who keeps going, against all odds. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk)
Dictionary.com seems to prefer "trouper." "Trooper" doesn't have a resilience definition, at least in the dictionaries I glanced through. [[User:Spell4yr|Spell4yr
this is funny! But definitely very informative... I know to use trouper now! --Stux
On the other hand, the Mirriam Webster entry for "trooper" lists the third definition as "TROUPER," which in turn contains the connotation we're looking for here. So it's not like it's absolutely wrong to use "trooper." —AbdiViklas 21:31, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
Coach Z has always struck me as the misunderstood type, right from the start. He's the type to get out there and help however he can, but people often misunderstand him partly because he tries too hard. Seems TBC have been playing up more on his personal, inner side lately, rather than his outer, social side. But I don't see his character really changing all that much - I think we're just getting to know him better over time. :) - KieferSkunk 23:45, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
I personally think that it's Coach Z's insecurities that are just starting to surface more and more. My guess is that his style and taste in music are a reflection of his attempt to draw attention and fit in. Only now, his desires for attention and/or acceptance not being realized through his "hip-hopness" (not that he's not being accepted) and its beginning to take its toll. His loneliness and insecurity is now starting to become more visible. Of course coach Z wouldn't be coach Z without his hip-hopness (??). I'm probably overanalyzing but still, that's my take on things. --Stux 20:38, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
