Mile

I suppose that the "British distance runner" sort of clears up the mini-STUFF-controversy over "mile" a while back? Spell4yr 20:41, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

That's what I thought of when I saw it too. It's not completely overt, though. Trey56 21:36, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

You need to watch over and over to really appreciate it. It's really a cute short. Just candy for some of us. But, suit yourself. —BazookaJoe 20:47, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
No, it's really terrible, I was extremly dissapointed, come on, seriously, it's terrible, but then theirs the fact that unless TBC TRY to make it bad, it really can't be, but anything else is always of overall "ok" standard, but for the H*R standard, its terrilbe.
It's got a catchy tune. It's just a little bit of candy that they gave us before the Strong Bad Email. Appreciate that TBC gave you anything at all. —BazookaJoe 21:27, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
I'd just like to reiterate that this is more the kind of topic for the forum, not for a Talk page. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:08, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Interesting

Bubs' shirt reads: "My Baby, Got Stole... By the bear holding A Shark"... a wiki reference? --Stux 21:09, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Uh, how? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:38, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
I would say it's a reference to the line "A Dingo Took My Baby!" This was said in the film "A Cry in the Dark" which was based on the case of Azaria Chamberlain, an Australian child whose parents claimed was taken by dingos in the night. This line has been referenced a lot, specifically in sitcoms (e.g. Seinfeld). Amazon.com says:'"The dingo took my baby" remains a derisive expression in the Australian lexicon.' Spiderbaby 23:58, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
And the Videlectrix game King Dingo. --DorianGray
If anybody wants to add this to the article, the best source to link to would be the Wikipedia article: Azaria Chamberlain disappearance. — InterruptorJones 00:11, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Hmm, no. It's referencing how Strong Bad describes "evidence of destroyed crops, stolen babies, and family bike-rides" and the corny tourist attraction T-shirts that always seem to irreverantly mention some legend. Qermaq 01:09, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Good Work

At pretty much 50 minutes from start to finish, that's one speedy article creation. Thunderbird 21:21, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

On a semi-related note: that'll look interesting on the statistics page... a (hopefully) brief trend where the Lappy emails got shorter and shorter. —BazookaJoe 21:24, 13 February 2006 (UTC)


SG:C2C Reference

Wether it is intended to or not, the Bear/Shark is a reference to Space Ghost: Coast 2 Coast episode "Kentucky Nightmare" where SpaceGhost shows off a spoof "nature" show about bears and sharks being "Nature's Best Friends". Space Ghost had made the documentary for public television, but they rejected it on the account of it being grossly inaccurate. SargeAbernathy 21:33, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

The Bear Shark's been around for a long time. Unless that SG:C3C episode came out more than 3 years ago, it's a reverse reference. Thunderbird 21:41, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
The episode came out 2001 ... That's about 5 years ago. SargeAbernathy 21:49, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
Even then, it'd be better noted in date or Bear-Shark. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:50, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
Done and Done. I made a section in Bear-Shark about possible references. SargeAbernathy 22:10, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

SBemail police

Is it worth mentioning that this seems to be the end of Strong Sad's SBemail police spree?-The 4rticle B4NDIT

Nah, not really. The "Sbemail Police" was kind of a gag just for the last email. --DorianGray
(Edit Conflict) I don't think so. It'd be notable if the spree continued, but I think it's best left as-is. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 22:10, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
"I'm sure it's just a weather balloon or a foreign exchange student. These strange beasts just aren't real!"
Heck, if they do something like that involving Strong Sad next week too, I say it could be counted as still on. Thunderbird 22:27, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Geddy

Not sure what the writer meant with the SFX and the Geddup Noise having the same "notes". You'd be hard pressed to call Geddy a musical note. Qermaq 23:21, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Bear Shark Filmography

Hi, since this page is being worked on and had a high profile at the time, I wanted your guys' opinions on the post I made here. Any input would be most welcomed. --Stux 23:46, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Many Mins?

Would "Very Scary Monstermin" be a reference to "Santamin", or are the two perhaps an inside joke? Trelawney

I thought that too. And it's only Homestar who ever says "sanataman" or "monsterman" so it could be a quirk of his.

Mythbusters?

Re: comment "The show Strong Bad mentions at the begining of the email is a reference to the The Discovery Channel's popular show, Mythbusters" - no. It's more like "In Search Of..." or any number of shows exploring strange phenomena. Mythbusters is not at all like SB's show.

Agreement/disagreement? Qermaq 01:41, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Bear in tennis shoes?

Someone referred to the bear with blue soles on his feet - did anyone else see that as a reference to the old campfire song about the bear in tennis shoes? If so, is it worth mentioning?--H-ko 02:48, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

My answer: What campfire song? never heard of it. Qermaq 03:07, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Intro song

I get the feeling Mr. Bad goes out of his way to come up with intro songs that feel like they're parodies of something but actually are not. I certainly can't place this one, but searching the Web for similar lyrics turned up "Walkin' With a Mountain" by Mott the Hoople:
And if I had a choice in life
I'd take that mountain for my wife
Anyone know what this song sounds like? I'm not hopeful. --TheNicestGuy 03:04, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
