What's new link

Dunno what i cans do about it, but the link to the sbemail is broked. It links to sbemail.190.html (that is, there's an extra dot). Someone with the privilege needs to fix this right quick. -Telamon 06:59, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Nvm. Fixed. — It's dot com 07:02, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Blackhead-Flaced Janice

Should it be pointed out that Blackhead-Flaced Janice is a joke on the misspelling of Pilmple-faced Bill? Is it possible to over-"over-analyze"?

Give the HRWiki:Standards a read. I'd say this qualifies as both obvious and explaining the joke. So... no. 20:21, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Homestar's Song

although it's similar, the song homestar's singing isn't the one from anything and the paper. that one comes from "never-ending story", but this one is different. i don't know where it's from, but i'm still deleting that inside reference. --Zatchman 07:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm considering the "Sail Away, Sail Away, Sail Away" part of Orinoco Flow by Enya? -- Mithent 08:48, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
i can see what you're coming from, but he says the line 4 times instead of three, so i'm guessing it's something else. --Zatchman 08:59, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
It reminds me more of the Hot Hot Heat song Bandages, but again he says it four times instead of three. Stev0 15:47, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Sounds a lot like "Walking on Broken Glass" by Annie Lennox Havl 20:57, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
It sounds to me like the Flintstone kids theme. "Yabba dab yabba dab yabba dabba do" FSK
Well, apparently, if everyone thinks it's something different, it has to be TTATOT.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 21:16, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
I agree with the Flintstones Kids theme. Awexome 22:37, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

"Human noses?"

Does Strong Bad imply that he is not human? Has this ever happened before?

I was wondering about that myself. I know it was in a quick joke, and may not hold a lot of weight, but I think something like whether or not you're human isn't something that you casually contradict in a joke with out paying attention. You wouldn't say "It looks just like me except with a human nose" even as a joke, unless it was already given that you weren't human, or at least weren't considered human.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 08:36, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
well, no matter how you look at it, he doesn't have a human nose, just like how homestar and the like don't have arms or pants, and those are mentioned all the time, too. i don't think it has much bearing on what anybody is. --Zatchman 08:54, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Except he said "human nose". It would have been just like Homestar's arms if he just said "nose". The humor in that, just like the humor in fingers is adding something to him that he should have but obviously doesn't. It's the same way with the word human. The humor in adding a human nose to him is that he has no nose and he's not human.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 09:00, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Naw, i agree with Neumannz, it's not notable beyond his lack of a visible one, whether he said human or not. — Defender1031*Talk 09:02, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
I think that "human" here was intended to mean "realistic". These are not cartoon noses, or animal noses. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:08, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm with E.L. Cool on this one. I definitely think he meant shaped noses, with nostrils and a bridge and all that good stuff, as opposed to a simple little ball nose, like the one Stro Bro has on the side of the Puddin' Patch. -- Onamuji 12:57, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

I think this joke has been referenced in alternate universe before. Danny Lilithborne 15:37, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

A mousy description? / Coach Z can't talk.

First, I'm not sure about that description of the Cheat's mural picture. His pudginess and distinctive, if unlabelled, jar of Hunny seem to suggest Winnie the Pooh to me. (The antennae, obviously, are out of place.)

Second, does Coach Z say "You're toys" or "You're twice"? I definitely heard the latter, which I can imagine him saying because he's weird, but the former makes sense too. Any thoughts? -- Onamuji 12:54, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

yeah, i hear "twice" ---Zatchman 16:06, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Shut up, lady!

Have this voice and Strong Bad's response appeared enough times now for us to consider it a running gag? I know it occurred in bottom 10, and I think one other...though I wouldn't swear to it. -- Onamuji 12:59, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

as noted in inside references, the second one was your funeral. i don't know enough about the rules of running gags to say whether this should be considered one. --Zatchman 16:12, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

The "Jungle Animals in Non-Jungle Situations" thing reminds me heavily of the Cartoon Network show "My Gym Partner is a Monkey." Anyone else?

I think "Shut up, Lady" should be considered a running gag. Three instances have warranted others to be added if my memory serves my correctly. The fact we've seen it in 3 toons set far apart from each other tells me that TBC find it funny and would add it into future toons. Stribbs 17:34, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Ummm, it is. It's here. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 17:39, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Oh... so it is. Uh, well... I'll... sports team. Stribbs 17:43, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Bubs' Merchandise

Doesn't Isn't Bubs selling a Strong Bad beanie cap? Should that go into teh "fun facts" section? —SpazZataKc


Why got the Facts about Gunkistan being a portmanteau and a inside reference to Gunk Iller deleted?

It may be because they're wrong...The portmanteau is less obviously incorrect, but technically -stan and is a suffix, a word in some language (Arabic) meaning "land," which is why it's used at the end of so many countries (Afghanistan = Land of the Afghanis, Kazakhstan = Land of the Kazakhs, etc.). This would make it not a portmanteau. As for the other one, being a reference to the Gunk Iller, I see no reason why this was up there in the first place. Gunk is a very common term for any gross, ambiguous substance.
I disagree with you on the portmanteau subject. if you look at the Portmanteaus page you'll notice "Millionzoic", "Tenthennial" and "Geographist", all words with a general suffix. Gunkistan should be there too. Maybe I was a little off by saying that it's in particular park Pakistan, but that's the only country that have the letter K to form -kistan (Gun-Kistan). I'm not readding it still so it won't start to be and edit war, but I think it should be discussed. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:59, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Old Lady

Now that the Old Lady made a third appearance, should we revive her page? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 16:34, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Two things

1.) Are we sure Homestar is singing "broken glass?" because I heard "working class". 2.) Will the shady daycare be haunting anybody else's nightmares or just mine?

"Working Class" makes no sense. The pinatas were filled with broken glass as evidenced by the multiple lacerations and shards on Homestar's face. Since Strong Bad asked Homestar to reveal what was contained there-in. In true Homestar way he sung it. Stribbs 17:37, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
1) definitely broken glass, 2) just yours --Zatchman 17:51, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
"Working Class" makes so much more sense that its more than a little surprising that someone would post it. The fact that they did it anonymously makes me wonder if it was another trollish post designed to incite an argument. Its a wonder that someone didn't call this person names. -JamesDean

Bubs arms.

Has anyone noticed that Bubs arms are animated the same way they were in Nightlife and how Coach Z's were in Trogday 08?--KirbychuHR'D 20:13, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes. It's a new style design. Individually drawn per frame. It seems to be the way things are done from now on. --DorianGray 20:15, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Toucan Sam, Zazu, and Cinderella

The cover of "Jungle Animals in Decidedly Non-Jungle Situations" has a variation of The Cheat similar to The Lion King (The Cheat resembles Zazu) and Toucan Sam, mascot of Froot Loops. The other is Cinderella.
This is in desperate need of rewording, but first we need to decide what we're doing with it. It can't be Zazu and Toucan Sam. Isn't that TTATOT? I don't really think it's either. It's just a toucan. A random jungle animal. Also, are we sure the other DVD is a play on Cinderella? It seems likely, but not certain. But if so, it needs to be worded better.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 21:01, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Or is it just generally agreed that it's pointless to mention any of that crap? I'm for that, too.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 21:11, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
I think the refernce to Zazu can go, but Toucan Sam should stay. The Cheat looks nothing like Zazu, beyond the blue color and big beak, nor does he look much like a real toucan, but the striped beak gives him a strinking resemlance to Toucan Sam.

Bioshock Reference?

Does the singing child at the daycare remind anyone else of the 2nd little sister sighting in Bioshock? The little sister is heard singing a song to the same tune, in a very creepy way. The fact that they're both singing the same tune, both children and the fact that it is very creepy in both cases suggests a reference, no?

Senor Cardgage is not a child. And it's a common kid's tune. And Senor is always creepy, so it might not be a reference. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:31, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Toys R Us

I think I saw a Toys R Us reference. Awexome 22:16, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

We,, you may or may not be correct about that. It would depend on what you saw, which I have no idea what it was.... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:32, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Ugly Bird

Anyone else think that Homestar calling the swollen, floating The Cheat an "Ugly Bird" is a reference to... um... the one other email (I forget which one) where Homestar called a swollen, floating The Cheat an "Ugly Bird?"

Someone else sure does, thats why they mentioned it in the article: The Easter egg where Homestar sees The Cheat float by and thinks he's an ugly bird is a reference to helium. -JamesDean


Just wondering how blood is an "Inside Reference." You don't have to be a Homestar Runer fan to fully appreciate blood jokes. Catman87
