Revision as of 12:12, 10 February 2005

After two weeks, we finally get a new e-mail. 'origins' not only discusses The Stick, but the disappearance of Mr. Bland and Senor and why Strong Sad has a belly-button. Hilarious stuff. Keep up the good work, TBC.

Also, I can't get Homestar's bread song outta my head.

  • Heh, I like Matt's "Little Strong Bad" voice.

Can someone ban the guy thats trashing the transcript?



Contents

The drill and Strong Sad

So we know how Strong Sad got his belly button, Strong Bad drilled it in. Then there's the fact that the drill noise last appeared in privileges, where you can overhear The Cheat doing something to Strong Sad with a drill. Coincidence? I don't think so. --DJ Samurai 06:11, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)

Strong bads parents

Are "mentioned" (though granted not explicitily by the brothers chaps, but they did pick the email) in the Cheat's bday email.

So? That wasn't the first mention of them, though they've never appeared. I hope you're not intending to add this as a Fun Fact. --Jay 14:26, 31 Jan 2005 (MST)
Oh, I get it. It was a poorly-thought-out Fact that needed to be DELETED!!! Okay, yeah, the Strong Folks have been referred to before. --Jay 14:31, 31 Jan 2005 (MST)
Strong Dad and Strong Mom, eh? Where were they mentioned? I don't remember that. --Moldorma
The Secrets That I Keep, the facts, one email in cheatday (as mentioned) and likely many others. --Jay 14:47, 31 Jan 2005 (MST)

Moleskin

"Moleskine is a brand of pocket notebooks and sketch pads popular among trend-following artists and writers. Strong Sad mistakenly pronounces it "mole skin", whereas the correct pronunciation is "mol-a-skeen'-a"." What exactly is mole skin? It's some sort of product that can be found at pharmacies and the like, but does anyone have an exact definition? It may be noteworthy for the above fun fact. --Ogog

The "moleskin" you're thinking of, Ogog, is just a cotton fabric. I don't know why it's called moleskin and I'm too lazy to do the research, but I assure you contains no actual mole flesh, and has nothing to do with Moleskine notebooks. — InterruptorJones[[]] 19:27, 31 Jan 2005 (MST)

Curses, you cut me to the swift, Ogog! Moleskine. -- zuzu

Yeah, I knew it had nothing to do with the notebooks, but I was thinking it might just be relevant for the fun fact. i.e., "Strong Sad pronounces it as "moleskin," which is a type of cotton fabric." --Ogog

The moon

The way the moon looks in the scene with Marzipan and Homsar being glued together reminds me of Day of the Tentacle. Or Sam and Max...sadly I can't play the games right now to confirm it...

The Blinking CD

Okay, I agree that the blinking CD fact has to go on the page SOMEWHERE, but it seems no one can agree where. Is it a Remark? A Goof? Should it go next to the Easter Egg? Let's try to get some general consensus. --Jay 16:44, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)

"Just weird is all." -- Cyrius 20:19, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)
This would be a perfect reason to create a "Miscellaneous" section, wouldn't you agree? It's not much of a remark, we can't guarantee this wasn't intended (ie: it isn't a goof), and putting it by the Easter Egg doesn't seem very... Easter Eggy to me. Really, a Miscellaneous section is practically necessary here. --Shadow Hog 21:02, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)
On second thought, just slap it into Trivia. That much we can guarantee it is. --Shadow Hog 21:10, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)
Actually, there IS a "miscellaneous" section, it just isn't called that. You may know it better as Remarks. Personally, I think either Remarks or Goofs, but so long as we can reach some sort of consensus and not have in fifty different places on the page, it works for me. --Jay 20:28, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)

I would just leave it in the description of the Sing-along Easter Egg. It isn't a "Fun Fact" at all, and if it weren't part of an easter egg, i would say it only belongs in the transcript. -LuigiHann

How exactly is it not a fun fact? --Shadow Hog 14:57, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)
'cos it's pretty mundane.
Whatever. I still say it goes in "Trivia". --Shadow Hog 17:04, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)
I'm with Shadow Hog on this one. Next to the Easter Egg it just feels clumsy. And this is no less a "Fun Fact" than most of the other entries in the column. --Jay 20:28, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)

Y'see, this is why I'm against Fun Facts seperation.

Well, Mr. Anonymous, you seem to be the only person on the Wiki to feel that way, and you certainly did not speak up at all when I was proposing the changes. --Jay 20:28, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)

D'oh! I swear, it feels like this site is changing so fast, it doesn't even seem like the Wiki I know anymore...

It's not like I split Fun Facts last night or something. I proposed it, I re-proposed it, and I proposed it again, and finally (several weeks ago) I just went and changed all the email articles and (until just now) NOBODY complained! --Jay 13:01, 3 Feb 2005 (MST)

Strong Mad line

I'm hearing Strong Mad's line as, "WHAT GRACE!", not "LUNCH BREAK!" Given the Cheat's recital, I think "what grace" makes more sense. Any other thoughts? -- FortyTwo 22:05, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)

Well, I certainly don't want us changing it back and forth. Today I hear "LUNCH BREAK", but that's just me. -- Tom 22:59, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)

What about "THAT'S GREAT!" That's what I heard.--DJ Samurai 06:07, 2 Feb 2005 (MST)

I listened closely and must concur with 42: "WHAT GRACE!" Though I thought it was LUNCH BREAK at first too. --Jay 01:10, 3 Feb 2005 (MST)

Heck no!

To me it sounds like "Heck no-it-all!" but the community seems to lean towards "Heck no at all" - Dr Haggis - Talk 23:21, 9 Feb 2005 (MST)

"Heck no at all" makes considerably more sense (though both characters say it fast enough that your version is at least feasible). And it's absolutely not "Heck no et al", as 203.122.209.127 keeps trying to make it. --Jay 00:25, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)
In the context, it's definitely "Heck no at all". Without context, we couldn't make sense out of much of spoken language. --BaconSandwich 05:12, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)
