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.

Awesome Sauce (Declined)

Is "Awesome Sauce" a reference to "Awexome Cross"?

  • Decline. I see no connection whatsoever. →evin29015:53, 28 Jan 2005 (MST)
  • Decline.j to the sag
  • At first, that's what i thought they said. Accept, even tough it's not going to do anyhting.
    • Especially if you don't sign your vote. ;) --Upsilon
  • Awesome sause is clearly a reference to awesome cross. For anyone to deny the connection of a rhyme is ridiculous. - badamn_187
    • Decline, and ban badamn_187 from posting.Are you serious, or just plain stupid? DELETED!-- ISlayedTheKerrek 08:58, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • acually they are bolth are rencecsa real cleener as staeted in the dvd comintary for this e-mail
    • Um, what?-- Drake
      • I think he/she means that the DVD commentary mentions that 409 and Awesome are both cleaners.--Wilbur
  • Accept. OK, with all the declines I'm sure this vote isn't going to make a difference, but I'm going to have to go against the grain on this one. To say you see "no connection whatsoever" is a bit silly; the phrases are obviously very similar in sound--the only phonetic difference is the "cr" being changed to an "s" sound. (And arguably the "x" to an "s", though it's debatable whether the X really affects the pronunciation of "Awexome".) The similarity could be coincidental, of course, but it could also be intentional--especially since the reference to a cleaner as a "sauce" is unusual enough to suggest there could be a reason for that specific word choice. (And I don't see the fact that there exists a real cleaner called "Awesome" as evidence against the matter at all; unless the cleaner's called "Awesome Sauce" there's still the possibility that the "sauce" was added as a reference to "Awexome Cross".) I'm not saying I'm convinced it necessarily is a reference; I'm just not quite as eager to dismiss the possibility out of hand as are the initial replies. Still, as I said, with all the "Declines" this vote is unlikely to make a difference, so oh well... -Alun Clewe 04:23, 21 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • The problem with that fun fact isn't that they don't sound similar (because they do.) The problem is that it's very UNLIKELY that the words "Awesome Sauce" were chosen SPECIFICALLY to refer to awexome cross. →evin290 09:09, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
      • See, I disagree that it's unlikely; as I said, "sauce" is an odd word to use to refer to a cleanser, and it seems likely there's some reason that specific word was chosen. I'm not convinced it was chosen to refer to Awexome Cross, but I don't think it's all that unlikely. But, again, it seems mine is the only (signed) Accept among a large number of Declines, so my vote's probably not going to make a difference here anyway... -Alun Clewe 01:30, 26 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Decline.Although they rhyme, I'm 99.9% sure that this was not meant to be a reference. I think the word "sauce" was probably used because the first 4 letters of awesome rhyme with it.--Wilbur
