TMBG: Mesopotamians

They Might Be Giants just released a new album containing a song called "The Mesopotamians". Coincidence? --Pat 09:24, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Coincidence. Had there been some mention of Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal or Gilgamesh, then maybe it would be more likely to be a reference. I think all these strange coincidences (like The Cheat being Istanbul) are just because TBC and TMBG have similar interests. Hagurumon 11:50, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Freakishly long arms?

Is it noteworthy that Marzipan's invisible arms seem longer than her body? Maybe it merits mention in the lack of visible arms article?-- 12:35, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Wait, what?! If they're invisible, how do you know they're longer than her body? I'm not sure what you're getting at here. --Kiwi 11:42, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, although you can't see her arms, she was able to operate Cardboard Homestar from pretty far away. Hagurumon 15:57, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
It could be that Marzipan has the same limited telekinesis that Homestar has, like in time capsule. wbwolf (t | ed) 16:04, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
Or a very faint piece of string, maybe? (don't know how to sign these things, sorry.)
Maybe the string is invisible as well as her arms. ¡ɯooz + 25:02, 12 January 1954 (UTC)
Check out all these... speculations. --DorianGray 18:53, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

in the first scene she was holding the book AND manipulating cardboard Homestar, no way she can do all that with arms!

Why not? I'm holding a fan and typing on a keyboard right now, and my arms aren't even invisible. --DorianGray 19:17, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Look at the easter egg and honestly tell me that she has arms, if she does, thay cant be shorter than 3 feet =)

In the scene where she is playing the guitar and manipulating cardboard homestar, she cant do that with arms. --Geoblu2 20:58, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Who's to say she doesn't have three or more arms? --DorianGray 21:04, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
I'd like to recite some scripture from the book of FAQ:
And lo, the question states:
I hath noticed an inconsistency in one of thou cartoons!! AHHH!
This was not good for the viewers of Holy wars were started. Some believed that TBC had intended one thing to be true. Others implied the inverse, saying that their idea was incorrect and only they knew the truth. And others believed in their own theories about how this inconsistency could be consistent. And suddenly, TBC arose to their keyboard, and in their infinite wisdom of the cartoon they had created, they told the people:
It was either done on purpose or it's just a cartoon and you probably shouldn't worry about it.
I hope that was entertaining and educational. It's edutainment! Bluebry 23:40, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Cardboardmens can be operated by strings!

How do you be so smart?

When hearing this toon's line, "Maripan, how do you get so smart," did anyone else immediately think of the line from TGS's Teeny Tiny Girl Squad episode where the TGS girls ask little Thomkins "how do you be so short?" I know it's not worded the same, but it sounds so similar to me. --Compdude

I did, but good luck trying to word that in a way that won't be reverted... — Defender1031*Talk 21:10, 7 August 2007 (UTC)


To me it sounds like Bubs is saying "batter-e's", with an emphasis on the last syllable that you wouldn't get from just "batteries". Seems like it's sort of a pun on "batter", plus E, the first letter of eggs. Ordinarily I wouldn't dispute "batteries", but they aren't batteries, they're eggs! Bubs doesn't seem like the type who would be figurative enough to call eggs batteries - because of, what, their nutritional power? I think it has something to do with batter.

That is way to complicated and makes no sense, i wanna see you try to put it on the page in a way it would make sense.--Kanjiro talk 23:21, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
It's possible, but I think he's saying something more along the lines of batterees. Like employees. So they're battered. And then baked. Into cookies. With chocolate chips. Bluebry 23:30, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

That'd explain the batter she was making earlier with flaxseed oil..


Sounded like bootcake to me. There's nothing in here but coats, and a boot.. unless it's a bootcake. Bootcake? I also heard the leathery sound of a boot colliding with his face... no bristly sounds.
