Reading Rainbow reference?

Stongbad says "But don't take it from me...". That sounds similar to the token phrase from Reading Rainbow: "But don't take my work for it...". Maybe too far of a stretch.

It's the first thing I thought of.

Screenshot

I found myself wondering where that screen shot came from that was used on the main page. It turns out it's from an Easter egg. I don't know what our policy on using Easter egg screenshots as the main screenshot that represents the email is, but I would be against doing this. Furthermore it's not really a shot of any of the "action" that takes place in the email. I would think a shot of the play itself, or maybe of Strong Bad abusing Homestar with the ice cream cone, would be a better choice.

When I uploaded this screenshot, I wanted to take one similar to the one in the Toons Menu, which is the KOT in front of an empty blackboard. To get this image, one would probably need a flash decompiler, which I don't have. So I just took a similar one. However, if you want to replace it, go ahead.

We don't make screenshots based on the toons menu anyway. — Defender1031*Talk 17:50, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh, okay, didn't know that. TCIC (Talk to me / Stuff I did)

Accreditation

The King of Town's reference about not losing accreditation may be inspired by the Clayton County, Georgia school system's recent loss of accreditation about a week ago. Clayton County is directly south of Atlanta, TBC's home base. [1]

Goblin Keep Siege?

It might be a bit of a stretch, but couldn't Nice Dad's third email (to the 42-year old etc.) be a reference to World of Warcraft, or at least MMOs in general? Goblin Keep sieges in particular makes me think of WoW. -Zero.exe
