"Okay"

If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time that The Cheat has actually said a word... Trey56 04:32, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Or is it? Are they just The Cheat noises? hmmm...Trey56 04:34, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
They're still The Cheat noises. Distinctive, but The Cheat noises nonetheless. — Lapper (talk) 04:36, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I think this one's pretty clearly unambiguous. Just to mess with people. --DorianGray
It definitely sounds like a very clear (for cheat talk anyway) "Okay!" to me. Much more intelligible than all the other times people have claimed to hear actual words in The Cheat noises, at any rate. - Image:TinySaturn2.GIF Saturn 04:39, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I have no question in my mind at all that this is "OK", not just The Cheat noises. Heimstern Läufer 04:40, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Let's STUFF'it! --Dacheatbot · Communicate 04:41, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Don't think we need to STUFF it... It's also not a fun fact. I believe that it's probably "OK", but it's still a guess. And if we allow this, then we'll have to revisit other toons as well. Where would we draw the line? Loafing 04:50, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree with Loafing. Should we remove it, or do we have to have a holy-crap-long debate about it in the STUFFlands? -J2
STUFFlands isn't what Loafing said. Loafing said Herelands. Anyway, The Cheat does say "okay", and it's probably just to play with the fans, as Dorian said (more or less). It's a sticky topic if we want to make an exception to The-Cheat-language transcription rule, and I'm going back and forth on this one. —BazookaJoe 04:57, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I don't think this is comparable to previous situations at all. The Cheat here does something completely out of the ordinary. In general, his vowels are always variants on "eh" or "er", but here he makes a clear "O" sound. Likewise, for his second syllable, he uses a "k" consonant, which is not in the Cheat's normal phonology either. I think it's quite clear that TBC meant this one to be unambiguous. Heimstern Läufer 04:58, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I disagree. I think it's still just The Cheat in his own language. Just because we think he said that does not make it so. Also, notice the angry black squiggle. That's hardly a mood where The Cheat would offer a compliant "OK". I'd suggest the real translation could not appear on a family website. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 05:05, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I agree with Qermaq --70.28.112.174 10:57, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I actually hear a "t" sound, not a "k". I think it could mean "OK" just because "OK" would be an appropriate answer. I also don't believe that TBC worry too much whether we can understand The Cheat or not. They don't have to document it. Loafing 05:12, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I agree. The Cheat was MEANT to obviously sound like he said a real word for the first time. I think it's worth mentioning that.--Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 05:06, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

This isn't the first time it's happened. He's said things clearly like this before. This isn't notable on the page as it's still pretty much The Cheat talk. It freaked me out though. SaltyTalk! 12:46, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Well... after listening to it a couple of times, it's definitely still in The Cheat. I can hear a distinct "k" sound in there, but everything else is standard squeakyness. So it's The Cheat talk, just more distinct than previously.

Interesting coincidence... or did I??

This was removed from the article's fun facts, but I think it merits mention somewhere.

  • The Chalkboard says "SOY IS MURDER" which is odd, given that she has been previously established as a vegetarian. This may be explained by Strong Bad's message in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 9.2 where he tells Marzipan that tofu (a soy product) is really made of baby seals.

Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 05:13, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I think the first part does not make sense. The second sentence might be OK to include. (The board says that soy is "ALSO" murder, btw.) Loafing 05:15, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
The first part neglects to mention that it says "TOO". As in, "Meat is murder, but soy is murder as well". The second part came to mind instantly for me. --DorianGray
I've readded, editing the beginning part considerably. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 05:22, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I would prefer a more neutral statement, like "Strong Bad has previously said that tofu (a soy product) is really made of baby seals." Loafing 05:26, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I agree, as I don't think it really was a reference to Marzipan's Answering Machine. I think it's just Marzipan going overboard with her "hippiness" (e.g., the chinchilla protest actually being a protest to get them out of her basement).--Bobo the King 09:58, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Baby seals is one possibility. The other is that "killing plants is no better than killing animals." Remember, she sings to vegetables, she had a seance for her plant, and made her veggie burger into homestar junior. Maybe the lesson was that plants are just as important.
and don't forget about when she decided not to cut the pumpkin off the vine. I R F 17:24, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I think this is the perfect time to use STUFF. --Trogga 19:04, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
It's related to her desire not to kill anything, not to the answering machine message. Basically, it's just a joke. Her line "So that way, you always feel guilty" illustrates this. — It's dot com 20:31, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Pressed Bunson?

Strong Bad raises a good point: What the crap is "pressed bunson"? The Google, it does nothing. Is this a reference to something (real-world or otherwise), or is this just another bit of standard-issue H*R nonsense? --Lukeonia1 07:07, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

If anything, it's just nonsense. No search on Google, Yahoo! or the Wikipedia turned up anything. Noted in the article. Possibly an inside joke just between the Bros. Chaps. WaveOBabies 11:42, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
My guess is they just want to mess with the wiki community and its over-obsessed fans. --The Real Zajac 09:49, 23 Oct 2006 (PDT)
This is the second topic on this page where someone suggests that TBC just want to mess with the wiki. I can't believe that they would think about the wiki at all while they simply do what they like. In this case, they just made up a funny word. That's all. Loafing 20:44, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

We just call it blue

I can't remember exactly which style of art it refers to, but one of the traditional art forms, like those of the Australian Aboriginees or Native American Indians, uses black where there should be blue due to lack of natural blue pigments. I'd put it on the page but it's probably better that someone finds the type of art first... ZanderSchubert 07:53, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Kindergarten?

Doesn't the fact that Missy P had a baby link in with the kindergarten thing? I don't know, it was just a thought.

Babies don't go to kindergarten. SaltyTalk! 12:49, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Hey, -man

Santaman, Santaman again, Monsterman, Teacherman... is it time to give -man its own page under Running Gags yet? Octan 13:48, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

If you're going to do that, establish a very strong initial edit; make the first edit as if you won't edit the article again. Most running gag pages will be put up for deletion if the article does not appear strong. — Lapper (talk) 14:29, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
And don't forget Marziman. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 14:32, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
And Stinkoman. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 16:27, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I don't think Stinkoman counts. That's clearly pronounced Stinko *Man*. The others are pronounced faster, resulting in it sounding like "min", which is the joke here. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 20:40, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
This just sounds like "This and that" (Or whatever it's called). This is simply part of how homestar talks funny personaly.
"This, that, and the other thing" (TTATOT), and point. It's always limited to Homestar, so it should be included, if anywhere, on his page. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 20:40, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Animas or Animals?

The fun facts, as well as this image, say that one of the subjects on Homestar's reportcard is "talking to animas". But when I watch it, it says "animals". What's going on? — Lappynapped 15:48, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I also notice that the fun facts say "blossom" is misspelled as "blossum", but it looks ok to me. Were these mistakes that have since been fixed? — Lappynapped 15:48, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

They both seem to have been fixed now. I watched it last night, and it said "blossum" (not sure about the animal/animas thing though). - Image:TinySaturn2.GIF Saturn 16:09, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, clearly the image on the page is the original release. Shortly after, they put the "l" back in "animal" (from a file cached on my computer). Then after that, they corrected "blossom" (from the current file). Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:02, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
I fixed the image.--Image:Stinkwing.gif »Bleed0range« 18:03, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Vulgar...

So, should we link to Swears? --Jnelson09 20:01, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Not really a swear, but it is vulgar. Like "crap" is vulgar too. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:19, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
