Magic or Badges

Does Brundo say I lost all my badges or magic?--ONESTOP 14:44, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I definitely hear a distinct "m" sound — "magic". Trey56 14:46, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Change the transcript someone.--ONESTOP 14:49, 17 December 2007 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've seen the thnikkachoir. Additionally is it the first time we've seen homestar in bed without his "tee-shirt + robe" nightwear? -DAGRON 15:12, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

It's definitely the first appearance of the choir... Trey56 15:13, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Phone Calls?

It sounds to me like Strong Bad says "cold calls" instead of "phone calls," which makes a little more sense (to me, at least). Manolios 15:33, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Seconded and edited. It's a phrase not everyone would recognize, so I'll work up an Explanation too. --TheNicestGuy 15:38, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Definitely agree, makes sense in the sentence and it's pretty unmistakably "cold."--Big Dog 15:39, 17 December 2007 (UTC)


is it illegal to put up an mp3 of the song for download?

Nah, we don't need to — in fact, I bet you one e-doughnut that it'll be this week's Quote of the Week, with better audio quality! Trey56 16:54, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
well, next week's probably --Zatchman 18:08, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

St. Olaf

Removed this Real-World Reference:

We can STUFF this if other people think the connection is strong enough, but note that St. Olaf was a real saint. If there's any legitimate reference to be made here, it's to him, but I don't see the need, personally. --TheNicestGuy 16:49, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree that the reference is more likely to the saint, and I think it's worth a mention in Real-World References, personally... Trey56 16:59, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Go for it if you want. I just think it's a little tenuous. The fact is, it's equally likely TBC were thinking of the fictional town in Minnesota when they used that name. We've got no details on the "character", so it's impossible to tell. --TheNicestGuy 17:06, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Meh, there's a college named after him too, along with probably a bunch of other things. But they're all named after him, so I think it's fair to add a small ref about him — I'll go do it. Trey56 17:09, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Ah, yes, the good ole St. Olaf Oles. Which, it's been speculated, is where the Golden Girls writer got the name in the first place. Oh, Olaf, you never foresaw any of this when you subdued the Orkneys, did you? --TheNicestGuy 17:18, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

You can't access The Thnikkamaaaaan! (Yeah, shut up, Wiki!)

So, uh, WHY can I not access The Thnikkaman or its Talk page? Notably, I can access The Thnikkaman through its history, but there doesn't seem to be anything unusual there. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 17:20, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

What is ESPECIALLY weird is that the error page I'm brought to has "thnikkaman" (but not "THE thnikkaman" as is the page's name) in its URL. What the pfargtl? Did someone higher up on the chain than me have something to do with this? --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 17:28, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
TBC got a cease and desist from the makers of the real Thnikkaman game, and so we had to temporarily shut the page down. It'll be rereleased under the name "Who said what now?" soon. Um, I dunno. -DAGRON 17:34, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
What's funny is that I was having a thought very similar to that. ;) --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 17:38, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

It's really frustrating that you're trying to get around the "This is real" message. All it does is send me more database errors. The message seems completely self-explanatory to me: "There is an error accessing the The Thnikkaman page. The page will be unavailable until the error can be resolved. Thanks for your patience." In other words, we're aware of the problem, we've taken steps to fix it, so keep your pants on until we do and stop messing around in the system. — It's dot com 18:02, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Gee, I'm sorry that I saw a problem with incredibly limited info and, as a sysop, felt the need to find out what I could and at least make an attempt at fixing it. I won't do it again. 9_9 --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 18:50, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Stop Motion

On the forum, I had suggested a Rankin Bass stop motion parody. Awexome 17:34, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
