:::Well that's 11.1 percent of the time where he doesn't mention email or sbemail in the song.  I'd say that it's borderline rare, and maybe, if the sbemails were retired it might be worth mentioning.  But in the present, as the number of mentions could increase or decrease, there's no sense mentioning this.  --[[User:O98-111-114-113|O98-111-114-113]] 16:28, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

There has been some debate over whether the ending can be considered an instance of duplicate characters. Does it count? [[User:Sarette|Sarette]] 23:36, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
+
-
:Strong Mad's [[hiding]] place doesn't count because it's not actually a duplicate character. Neither is this. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 23:37, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
+
-
::I was wondering about this one myself when I saw the reverts going on. I had to go check the article to be sure. It seems to me the article on duplicate characters includes only cases where there's clearly two of the same character, not some fake version plus the real, so it seems this is not an example. Though how SS managed such a realistic version is hard to figure out... {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 23:59, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

== Is *this* your card? ==
+
-
 
+
-
I think this may be a real-world reference to a trick Penn & Teller used to do on their home videos.  You'd trick your friend into "randomly" picking a certain card, and then pretend to get the trick wrong by guessing another one.  Then you'd sit down to watch TV (actually P&T's videotape) when a news anchor would break off in the middle of her broadcast to say, "By the way, IS THIS YOUR CARD?" holding up the card they took in the first place.  The way SB delivered the line and held the card right up to the 'camera' is *very* much like the P&T version of the trick.
+
-
: It's too general. Lots of people that do card tricks say "Is ''this'' your card?" --{{User:Jay/sig}} 00:04, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
+
-
::agreed.  P&T say it as a parody of third-rate magicians.  If it were a P&T reference, it would be the three of clubs (the card P&T always "randomly" pick) or at least the three of butts. [[User:Stev0|Stev0]] 02:09, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

This is a good example of a bad fact. Mention what Mandrake IS. Don't say what it is NOT. --{{User:Jay/sig}} 16:11, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

== Coincidence? ==
+
-
 
+
-
The outtake ("And I'm like, 'You just jingled a bunch of jangle in my face and called it magic!'") could be a reference to the lyric "Can you hear the jingle jangle sound" from the song "Money By the Pound", which is from the Disney movie "Pete's Dragon". Though this might be a coincidence. --D-Boy Wheeler

-
:"Jingle jangle" is a pretty common onomatopoeia... {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 15:01, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
+
-
 
+
-
: It could just as easily be a reference to the Bee Gees' "Jingle Jangle," Hot Hot Heat's "Jingle Jangle," the Archies' "Jingle Jangle," Gene Autry's "Jingle Jangle Jingle," Bobby Darin's "Jingle Jangle Jungle," the phrase "jingle jangle morning" in Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man," the CNN.com article "The jingle-jangle daylight of the Byrds"...

== La-la-la-la... ==
+
-
 
+

Just a thought here, but could S.S.'s line about il-l-l-l-lusions be a reference to when Strong Bad says "La-la-la-la-la-la" several times in [[retirement]]? They sound very similar to me...

== Typing Noise ==
+
-
 
+
-
There is a goof in the article as "When Strong Bad is displaying the types of magic, what he describes about them is on the Lappy, however no typing noise is heard." Hasn't this happened in numerous SBEmails ([[video games]] is an example)? Why is it mentioned here and no where else? I think we're supposed to assume that he's typing all the things he narrates while in his imagination anyway. {{User:NFITC1/sig}} 14:23, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

:Sure. There are plenty of endurance artists other than blaine. I would be comfortable with a reword saying that it's a parody of endurace artists ''such as'' blaine. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 20:22, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

+
-
:[[Wikipedia:Down Under|"Down Under"]] is a nickname for Australia and New Zealand.  I mention this only since TBC used a location-based joke for Coach Z's easter egg.  So no.  No Outback Steakhouse reference here since "X from Down Under" predates Outback Steakhouse.  — [[User:Ngamer01|Ngamer01]] 16:53, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
