Mustard Man

Real-World References says: --"In the Homsar "Semi-Annual Mustard Man Award" easter egg, "Mustard Man" is a reference to a photo of a guy covered in mustard that circulated around the Internet in 2002."--

Does anyone else feel that that is a stretch.

Yeah, it sounds more like a bit of Homsar randomness my dear Annonys. Sign your comments. --TaranchulaVamp15 16:20, 25 Jul 2005 (CST)

Blue Book

I think "Blue book" is actually referring to Kelly Blue Book which is a resource book for people who want to buy/sell their used cars. When discussing the price of a used car people will often check the "blue book" for the cars value.

That makes sense to me, but I didn't know. Feel free to add it as a Real-World Reference. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 08:45, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Strong Bad's Shoes

Has anyone else notcied that Strong Bad's shoes could be his feet, like how his mask and boxing gloves are his face and hands? This is evidenced in the "Stinkiest Diapey" award (he wears the shoes even as a baby) and the huge tube socks ad from modeling. (He's wearing the shoes under his socks) Poopsmith Z

Wouldn't surprise me one bit. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 09:10, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Iiiiiit's possible. --TaranchulaVamp15 12:12, 25 Jul 2005 (CST)
From Stand-Up we at least know his shorts are not his... never mind

Cutest Couple

This is fairly obvious, but does anyone think it's worth mentioning that Bubs' "Cutest Couple" is a reference to the widely-held practice of Senior Favorites, when high school seniors vote on their classmates for the yearbook?

  • Also called "Superlatives", which, BTW, is the name of the chapter that Bubs' picture appears in. Yeah, it is obvious IMHO. Of course, most "cutest couples" in yearbooks are TWO people... --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 22:58, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

No Photo available

Somehow, the "No Photo Available" for Marzipan's record makes me think back to "Happy Fireworks!", in which Bubs says Marzipan is still gone for the summer. How about y'all? --Ookelaylay 23:51, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

That's what I thought of too. I'm not quite sure if the connection is enough for a fun fact though. --mibluvr13dígame 23:58, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I was thinking more that someone (either Strong Bad or Marzipan) exaggerated the claim. But either explanation could work. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 00:55, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I've been wondering about something related to this. Is anything going on with Missy in real life that would keep Marzipan off the site? (And before you say it, I know that they don't need her voice to use Marzipan's picture. But her prolonged absence is unusual.) — It's dot com 01:03, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
If I'm not mistaken, the last time Marzipan's voice was heard was in a Store Easter Egg, which was (AFAIK) created on May 23. Yeah, it has been a while... --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 01:16, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I think that it has been a couple of months since we have seen miss pan. Now that it has been so long, we can safely safely assume that Miss Palmer has gone AWOL. All that I know is that I am glad that Matt isn't doing the voices. User:Rogue Leader.sig
I don't think she went absent without leave, exactly. We can only guess what's going on in her life. —BazookaJoe 01:32, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Uh, I was kinda making a stab of not good humor. let me rephrase, I think that something has come up, and Missy doesen't have time to do Marzipan voices. User:Rogue Leader.sig
Yeah, but I know we can't make it a remark of any sort. It's just speculation on all parts. --Ookelaylay 02:03, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC) PS- Maybe Mike and Missy got a divorce? Or maybe Missy's been in the hospital or something?
I believe that it is more likely a family affair, and if there was a devorce, Marzy would be killed off. User:Rogue Leader.sig
According to IMDb, she's the co-producing some movie called The Unseen. That would certainly keep her busy for awhile. --mibluvr13dígame 03:02, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Regardless of whatever is going on with Missy in real life, they don't need her to draw a picture of Marzipan. I think this was just a joke - leaving it open what exactly Marzipan was doing to get that award.--Eytanz 14:31, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
She doesn't do the voices, and everyone starts thinking that she's leaving forever and has divorced Mike.... I'm not sure what to make of this...
Annony, she seems to be cowriting a motion picture, she can't do a voice of Marzipan. User:Rogue Leader.sig
Eytanz: We already said we know they don't need her voice for her picture. Rogue Leader: Matt used to do the voices from New York while Mike was in Atlanta (or something like that, I'm not going to look it up), so it's not like it's impossible for her to do a couple of lines here and there. — It's dot com 03:53, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
True, True... — User:Rogue Leader.sig

Strong Sad's the Cheat fountain pen

Did anyone notice that the tip of Strong Sad's Pen was yellow with black spots, Just like the cheat!

Dear Annony- Have you ever watched "STRONG BAD IS IN JAIL"? It's the same pen there, and it wasn't noted then. --Ookelaylay 02:56, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Ummm...I'm not touching this one...it's too easy... --TaranchulaVamp15 00:25, 26 Jul 2005 (CST)

It just has a yellow tip with black ink smeared on it. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 06:22, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Shirts or shorts

I've watched this email several times now, and I consistently hear the "punchline" of his first joke as "they don't wear shorts", rather than "they don't wear shirts".

I know this is the kind of thing that cannot really be determined due to Homestar's accent, and I realize that "shirts" makes more sense in the context than "shorts". I really don't expect anyone to change the transcript. I just thought it worth noting.--Eytanz 14:35, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I hear "shorts", but yeah "shirts" makes more sense. --Ookelaylay 18:06, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I hear "shirts". — It's dot com 18:17, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I hear "shirts" too. And think about the redneck stereotype for a minute. They wear pants (thankfully). They often don't wear shirts. Come on; Homestar isn't THAT dumb. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 18:20, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
That makes sense, but it still sounds like "Shorts" to me. Probobly is Homestar's accent, though. -GG Crono
It sounds like shorts to me; I won't deny that. But I know he isn't saying that. —BazookaJoe 03:31, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Actually it sounds like "sho-its," which may could go either way. "Shirts" is the logical interpretation. — It's dot com 04:07, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Shirts sounds more like your stereotypical redneck, which is basically what redneck jokes are about. So, yeah I’d say its shirts too. The Pardack

I'm just me

Is the I'm just me song a real song? seems vaguely familiar - killyoukillyou

Yeah I know. It sounds like a kiddie song they sing on PBS kids -Kinsey

The single grain of rice thing

Once I read in a record book that someone wrote the lord's prayer on a grain of rice. Strong Sad doing a similar thing HAS to be a referance. I don't know who it was or anything more about it, though...--DumDe 08:53, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

If you go to a street fair in many big cities (in the US or Europe), you'll find someone who writes stuff on grains of rice. Normally they aren't very good at it, but I once saw a man who could write decently long sentences. So yeah, this is a reference, but to a particular craft (taken to a ridiculous extreme), not to any particular event. --Eytanz 15:30, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Random

Doesn't "Most Macaronis Nailed To A Paper Towel Tube" count as making up random crap that no one else would do and calling it a record? why does Count Longardeaux stand for it?-Ashley

The record is for: "Most Macaronis Nailed to a Paper Towel Tube by Strong Mad," which furthers the chances that no one else would do it. I bet Count Longardeax wouldn't stand for it. —BazookaJoe 12:47, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I think that random crap is more like me destroying a TV, while handstanding, while singing the itsy bitsy spider song with a flappy disk taped to my head.
I think that it is just Strong Bads usual practice of humouring Strong Mad, with a "Good Work" like in E-mail "Dragon". - Lord Z.
I agree. Strong Bad is probably humouring him... 'cause you don't wanna get that guy angry. -Polly 02:17, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Count Longardeaux

Could "Count Longardeaux" possibly be a reference to big-band leader Guy Lombardo? --Sam, 27 July 2005

Sorry, maybe I am just being slow, but I dont see the connection. - Lord-Z

Name that tune

What's the name of the tune Strongbad sings in the openning song? -- M4CFR34K 08:22, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Standard Nathan

You can still click on the words Standard Nathan around two seconds after it goes

Should I add this too Goofs? And please someone else don't add this for me, I want to be credited if it is accepted.

(1) It doesn't work for me. (2) You won't be credited even if you do add it - anything you add to the article belongs to the wiki. You can claim credit on your user page, but you could do that anyway even if someone else actually added it to the page. --phlip TC 07:53, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)


That IS one long Bull Honkey

I tried replicating it, but I can't do it. Matt has some damn good diaphram control. Or somethin'. -GG Crono
