Does anyone think that homestar ripping off his star could be a reference to Marshmallow's Last stand, where Strong Bad steals it from him?

No. —BazookaJoe 03:00, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Maybe it is just me, but where the transcript says "And Coach Z would wear this cool jacket." I keep hearing "And Coach Z would wear a schooljacket". Does anyone agree?

I do, and I don't think it's a matter of opinion as atleast the mp3 version of the song goes "would wear a schooljacket" -

Would a listen of the DVD version where John Linnell sings the song help any? -- Tom 06:06, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
Probably, as I'll admit the distinction is (after listening to it about 20 times or so) small. -
I just listened to the John Linnell version and it's definitely "this cool jacket" — Exhibit A 19:17, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
Acknowledged. -
The whole thing also comes down to: Coach Z is not wearing any sort of school jacket in that scene. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 05:13, 23 October 2005 (UTC)


Every instance of a character’s name does not need a link. Linking the first mention of the name or place is sufficient. Drhaggis 16:15, 14 Sep 2004 (MST)

Yes, I agree. This needs to be clear from the start. I think there's something about it in the Help section. -- Tom 16:30, 14 Sep 2004 (MST)

First Shirt?

Strong Bad wears a shirt in stand-up.--Hysterical Woman 16:20, 12 Nov 2004 (MST)

That was Lil' Strong Bad. Seek Bar

Over-sensitive referencing?

Is the "fourteenth song" really an explicit reference to a particular performance by a particular band? Doesn't every band introduce their songs that way upon ocassion? - ehsteveistaken

I deleted it at one point because I felt that it wasn't a reference, but hey, it's back now. Bye bye... - pacdude

"funny pronunciation", eh? Hah! Those funny Germans. They're so funny! And rubbish! God bless America. --


Given the game is on a floppy and the propensity of TBC for vintage games Baal is more likely a ref to the 1989 Dos/Amiga/Commodore 64 game. See Floppy Disk Container for details. - Dr Haggis - Talk 17:39, 11 Feb 2005 (MST)

Closed STUFF

These were on the STUFF page and declined. If you wish to contest these, leave a note here, but don't allow it to be confused with any of the original votes.

Beastie Boys (Declined)

"This next one is the fourteenth song on my forty-second album" is a paraphrase of the Beastie Boys' [1] introduction to their song "Jimmy James" on their album "Check Your Head". In that song, the Beasties begin by saying, "This Next One, Is The First Song On Our New Album..."

  • Comment I STUFF'd this because it seems like a big stretch to me. I'm sure the Beastie Boys aren't the only ones who have said "this next one is the first song on our new album."
  • Decline. Agreed - many bands have said this and it's way too common to be attributed to any one source. --TheEggman 23:24, 14 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • "Second." --Aussie Evil 13:06, 15 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Second. --AwesomeSauce 20:53, 15 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Second. --tomstiff 21:50, 15 Mar 2005 (CST)

No Soup for You!!

The Cheat pouring hot soup on Homestar's eyes is a reference to the HBO Series OZ, Episode 305; U.S. Male, where this is done to inmates Poet and Pierce. This episode aired on 7/28/1999.

NOTE: This item applies to both New Boots and different town.

VERDICT: This item was overwhelmingly declined, 17–2. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/New Boots.

That field...

Um, in the football fields page, it says that the football field is in this e-mail, but the field that Homestar calls it quits in is really not like the normal football field, what do you think? --Dinoshaur 15:38, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Real World References

The OZ reference that you all keep deleting is legitimate. Please see New Boots. Follow the links, Google it, or watch the show.

  • I'm also familiar with this show. Why is it that this reference was dis-allowed? -B 06:52, 15 October 2005 (UTC)
Sounds like coincidence to me. STUFF it if you think otherwise. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 08:06, 15 October 2005 (UTC)

Pink spiky hair

Pink spiky hair?

I have loaded the SWF into a decompiler in an attempt to verify the "secret" fun fact currently listed in the article (which needs to be moved to a real category). I can't find the pink spiky hair anywhere, just Marzipan's big yellow mane. Can anyone verify that the pink hair really exists and that we're not actually seeing fanstuff here? — It's dot com 08:29, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Confirmed. It's there. --phlip TC 05:47, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Try double clicking the mane and delete part of it. You'll see the mohawk.-stuntman021

Bust of or busted'?

I hear busted Bubo, not bust of bubo-- Benol, aka Coach B 21:30, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

I distinctly hear the "uh" sound in "of". Strong Sad's mouth moves more in the way of "of" rather than "ed". --SaltyTalk! 21:38, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

The Bubo item in the "fast forward" for the DVD - should it be moved to the "fast forward" for the email itself? Qermaq 23:19, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Linnell version

I have an mp3 of the Linnell version that I bought off a seedy looking guy in the alley behind Kroger late at night that I'm willing to send to anybody who wants it for $5. (In reality, I sent a guy I met on a message board I found searching Google for the mp3 a Gmail invite for it, and I'm willing to send it to anybody who wants it for free.) — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 07:16, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
