Double Homestar with Cheese

Homestar is listed twice in the cast list. Any reason? Flicky1991 17:21, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Compé backgrounds

Considering that Strong Bad seems to have a new background for his Compé in each episode, I think that a new page should be added to keep track of them. Unbalanced 18:16, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, with a galllery and everything! The only problem would be after fifty emails or so, we'd end up with one long article with lots and lots of pictures, but that was never a real problem with Floppy Disk Container or the Other Costumes articles. – The Chort 18:22, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Fencéd Pants

Is there a seperate name for the fenced-in area where Marzipan's scene takes place, or is that just an extension of The Field/her house? Monkeytender 19:04, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Jeopardy!

"Potent Potables" is a real category from Jeopardy!, and not just from the SNL Celebrity Jeopardy skits. The skits use it because it's a real category. This sbemail references Jeopardy!, not SNL's skits. This real-world reference has been changed a few times already to insert and re-insert the SNL bit, but it does not belong. 146.122.71.68 19:05, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

If it wasn't in every single SNL Celebrity Jeopardy! parody ever made, I wouldn't be arguing a case. If it had only been in a few of them, I would agree that it didn't belong, but since it's in all of them, and since SNL made it much more famous than Jeopardy! did, i think it deserves a mention. I'm certainly not disagreeing that it was originally a Jeopardy! category, but it is much more common in the SNL parodies. i also don't think it's proper to say "it doesn't reference x; instead, it references a thing that x references" if it's this direct of a reference. for instance, if i wanted to say "potent potables" intending it to be an SNL reference, i wouldn't want you to say "it's not an SNL reference b/c it's an actual Jeopardy! reference". not saying that's what tbc did or didn't do, but it's too commonly referenced in SNL to not be mentioned on the page.

There's nothing tying it to SNL that doesn't also tie it to Jeopardy. Jeopardy did it first, so list it and it alone. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 19:38, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Alex Trebek as host was a part of every SNL Celebrity Jeopardy skit. This cannot be said of Jeopardy!, which was previously hosted by Art Fleming. So if a Jeopardy-style show were hosted by Alex Trebek, would this be a reference to SNL's skits since he was in all of them? Potent Potables is one of few oft-repeated Jeopardy! categories, which is why SNL uses it.146.122.71.68 20:44, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
I dunno, I kinda lean towards the SNL skit, too. Like TKWSN said, it seems that SNL did much to make the category stand out in popular consciousness. Note that the big wiki feels it relevant enough to mention both of them. I kind think we should too. -132.183.151.122 00:27, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

"ONION BUUUUBSSSS!!!"

The cheering crowd, which includes the fanatic who screams "Onion Bubs" (from original and A Death-Defying Decemberween), appear in this sbemail. Does that mean that they should have a separate page since they've been heard three distinct times?

I'd say no, because the only things that can be said about them can (and probably already are) noted on Onion Bubs's own page already. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 19:31, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

404'd

Currently, whenever I try to view the regular page or the flash file, I get 404'd. Anyone else? What can I do? Can someone put up a mirror?

Not me. I'd try to put up a mirror, but I don't know how to. Sorry about that. Maybe clear your cache and see if that works. After that, wait. If it doesn't clear up, the only option left would be to contact the Chapmans. Maybe the error is on their side. (On a related note, can anyone teach me how to make a mirror of stuff? Maybe on my Talk Page?)--Jellote wuz here 20:15, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
