Kick The Can reference?

When Homestar is sad and kicking a gray can, I believe music from 1936 is playing. Is this a reference to "Kick the Can"?

Yes. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll add that now... Bubz 12:00, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Easter Egg?

Shouldn't pressing the spacebar to reveal old images from the book be counted as an Easter Egg? It's not something that's readily obvious or stated at the beginning, so I think it should be. ---anonymous- 13:56, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Strangely, this doesn't seem to work for me. Is there a specific time you need to press the spacebar? -- Wordmama 16:56, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
It only becomes available once the scene with Homestar and Marzipan is seen. If you click spacebar on that scene and all the way through, it will show the picture of what it really was in the book. Bubz 16:59, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Notable similarity?

In Strongest Man in the World, Homestar expects the conclusion of the original book, but it doesn't happen (Pom Pom refuses to share the golbol.) Similarly, he expects to win the game by running onto the field, as in the original book, but that doesn't happen either. In both cases, they're the only things that happened in the book but not the toon. Is this notable in Fun Facts, would you say? --Jay (Gobble) 16:29, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

If you can find a short, simple way to word that, than, yeah, this is easily notable.--Jellote wuz here 16:38, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Both of them was different from the original books. But however, in Strongest Man in the World, Pom Pom did not share the golbol. But in Where My Hat Is At?, Homestar just slides in and scores. In Where My Hat Is At? (Short), Homestar does the same thing, but ends up losing. To sum it up, Yes. That'sBupkis! 16:39, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

¿Dónde están los desaparecidos?

Does anyone else think that Homestar finding Strong Sad inside a block of concrete at the bottom of the pool is a reference to when 30,000 Chilean citizens were killed or tortured during Augusto Pinochet's rule as Chilean president? Or am I the only one who has had ap spanish and has therefore studied the subject? I remember learning that the victims would be strapped (for lack of a better word) to concrete and cast out into the ocean. Some of the bodies washed up onto the shore somehow before Pinochet died, but he couldn't remember anything about the subject due to Alzheimer's. Does this politicide merit a real-world reference on this page? The Knights Who Say Ni 17:25, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

I think it's more of a reference to old cartoons about mobsters encasing victims or late debtors in concrete and throwing them in the ocean. That would explain the costumes and accent. It's a common punishment. 99.142.19.40 17:27, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
