Expen$e Account Ones Easter Egg

I respectfully disagree with the assertion that this Easter Egg is a reference to the "Real American Heroes" Bud Light Campaign. The voice-over for this spot was, in my opinion, a pretty good Ted Koppel impersonation. I think the idea was just to have this spot sound more stuffy and business-like, but, if others agree, mentioning the Ted Koppel impersonation may be worth it. [66.61.20.81] 19:35, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

I wouldn't say Ted Koppel is the source of the voice, but the structure and tone of the commercial is a reference to either the Bud Light campaign or Miller commercials. I'm willing to accept that the community will feel it's TTATOT, but it's clear to me that the voice is clearly an attempt at mimicking a particular voice. wbwolf (t | ed) 19:13, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
I also don't think its a reference to the Real American Heroes. The voice didnt match at all

The Field

i've never seen that style of trees in the field before. is it new? Zatchman 18:54, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Looks like. They're all the time tweaking those bushes. --DorianGray 18:58, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Or maybe these bushes are from Foreign Lands? Free County UK or summat? Evil Egg 12:03, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Take off wedding rings

This is not a reference to Strongbad's boxing glove hands at all, but the tendency of some male business people on the road to remove their wedding rings to hide the fact that they are married to other women they might meet. I moved this to explanations and removed the inside reference. A mention of vaugly hand related things doen't make a reference. --Foolster41 19:25, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

"You - You've earned it."

Is this a reference to the scene in Ghostbusters where Venkman gives the candy bar to Egon? Just a coincidence?

Oh, wow. Why didn't I recognise that? o_o --DorianGray 20:55, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Conglomerate...

I'm pretty sure that conglomerate is a rock. A sedimentary rock, at that. I have no idea what TBC would be referencing though... --Chiron 23:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

  • A conglomerate rock is a bunch of rocks formed into one. A business conglomerate is a bunch of companies formed into one. -141.133.160.52 23:24, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Delivery-ceivables

in the transcript for the last easter egg is says "Delivery Receivables", but if you listen to it, the announcer elides it into one word, like Delivericeivables. Not quite sure if there should be a note explaining it. -Telamon 23:29, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Homestar's Soles

Is this notable? I'm not really STUFFing it now because I'm neutral to its inclusion. Bad Bad Guy 23:40, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

I think the sole-stars are a stylistic inclusion. The One Two Homestar picture is of an ever-so-slightly different style than normal. Please to be also referring to crying, where he is in the usual style, also with no stars. Additionally, the footprints he leaves in the snow in Homestar Presents: Presents have no stars. Thusly, I feel the stars are NOT typical of the normal Homestar, and only appear in style changes. --DorianGray 04:17, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I think that makes sense. I agree. Trey56 04:57, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

St.Louis

They brought The Cheat an swimming airplane from St. Louis, why implies that they went to St. Louis, even though they went to the King's castle and went to the bar. Did they even go anywhere for the buisness trip?-68.116.129.182 02:01, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

  • I think we should at least mention Lambert International Airport, because that must have been where he likely got it. Now that I read it again, did they even go anywhere? In some cases, I think it's possible. The Brother's Chaps try to reuse as much stuff as they can. Then again maybe "not going on pointless business trips." Means that the Cheat actually goes somewhere. 70.232.141.225 11:06, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Scantily?

Should we maybe point out that Strong Bad misused (whether TBC did it intentionally or not) the word "scantily"? ~ CoachZ(talk · contribs)~ 03:52, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Strong Bad does that kind of thing all the time, really. --DorianGray 03:59, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Or maybe just sits in an Corinthian leather office chair all day lighting smokables with vast wads of cash. But yeah, "scantily"'s probably just a Strong Bad mannerism. Evil Egg 12:00, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

New paaaaaper?!

The @ sign on New Paper is off a little bit. Wha?

It is. If you compare it to a previous email's, it's quite clear. --DorianGray 05:32, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Homestar jumping

Pretty sure that's a reference to scooby doo. Especially since it has to do with "rustling" in some bushes.

  • Chances are maybe not. Homestar would have sounded like our good ol' little dog if he would try to make that reference. But then again, maybe his speech impediments make that impossible. 70.232.141.225 11:10, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

They're bringing it back

American gladiators is being reborn. Worth mentioning?--76.18.235.142 07:39, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
