Benedetto!

Just making sure. Frank Bennedetto was not in this email, but rather a memorial to him. Right? - Drsandsattwo 20:18, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Uhm... no. Frank was revealed to be alive in Labor Dabor (and sign your name please.) -Everybody! 21:49, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Sorry. What I realize Bennedetto is as alive as a psuedocharacter can be, but that is a memorial rather than the real thing. correct? - Drsandsattwo 23:38, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

I have made my decission

Not-yet opened STUFF

The third kid facing certain doom in the Homestarmy refers to military school.

- Gtxm78 Its Brown 21:56, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

I think that, if anything, certain doom refers to the fact that Homestar is a ridiculously inept "commander" and will lead the Homestarmy to certain doom. - Chupaqueso 22:01, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Jumped in?

What's that mean? Strong Bad said you can send your kid off to join the On Point Kings, but he'll have to be jumped in. Funny, usually by the time I come here, the e-mail page is already done. It's odd to see it so new :). Kvn8907 22:11, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

It's the standard gang initiation... urban legends about flashing headlights and assaulting random people in front of Wal-Mart notwithstanding, most gangs simply beat the $*#! out of prospective members to make sure they're tough enough. That's called being "jumped in". 68.13.21.225 23:22, 21 May 2007 (UTC) (a no-account good for nothing so and so)

It looks like they might take The Paper out after all. Strong Devon 22:26, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Firebert to Trogdor

It's possible that The Cheat didn't change Firebert to Trogdor just because his name was awful. I think it's more to do with the popularity of Trogdor and the amount of fan contributions it has spawned.

Same here. kai lyn 00:10, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
agreed --EricTheDerek 00:20, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I disagree. I think the firebert not being a good commando name was exactly what they had in mind. — Defender1031*Talk 00:22, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
but Trogdor isn't a commando name...is it? --EricTheDerek 00:25, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I agree as well... SB may have stated his opinion that Firebert isn't a good commando name in a previous email, but there's no reason to assume that's the reason he's unpopular; the gag would have worked just as well with any of the other commandos. The gag is a commentary on how much more popular Trogdor is than the commandos, not the "quality" of the name. - Ugliness Man 02:10, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Redheaded stepchild?

Is it possible that "step-headed red-child" is a reference to the phrase "redheaded stepchild," meaning an unfavored child? -HotBees 00:01, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

If that's an actualy saying, then i'd say definately. Incidentally, i've never heard that before. — Defender1031*Talk 00:03, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I have. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 00:21, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
Me three. Trey56 00:22, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
Ditto, I've heard the phrase "gonna beat you like a red-headed step-child", and I've heard a few comedians reference the phrase. And even if it wasn't a common phrase, there'd pretty much be no other explanation for what the heck step-headed red-child is supposed to mean. - Ugliness Man 02:15, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
According to Urban Dictionary, red-headed stepchild is a synonym for whipping boy. That's how I've always heard it used (eg, my department is the company's red-headed stepchild) and that makes sense in this context. (Be ye warned, oh external link-clickers, Urban Dictionary is NOT a family-friendly website!) Not Horse Woman 00:44, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
It's an old saying for suretain. --Mycroft Holmes 01:19, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Umm

Is there some kind of arbitrary rule that you don't link the same page twice in a paragraph or something? "which strong bad said was not a good commando name in army" looks wonky without a link or some way to identify "army" as referring to an email and not simply a grammatical miscarriage. -anonymous

Link once and only once. First instance only. It's not unwritten, it's written.. place... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:45, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
I understand the reason for the rule, and I'm not asking for the rule to be relaxed or broken, but there should be some sort of punctuation or format convention (quotes, bold, italics, some combination of 2 or 3) for a case like this. Otherwise, as anonymous pointed out, it just looks like bad grammar. - Ugliness Man 02:13, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
