Out of curiosity...someone should get a screen grab and see if the maze on the box is actually solvable. Could add that to the remarks section. (which currently doesn't exist) {{User:Joshr915/sig}} 23:08, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

I would just like to say that I think that the piece of the brain picture that strong bad mentions is a picture of the final boss of contra III: alien wars.

:::Hm.  Very interesting.  I'd say the head-on view makes the case pretty strong for whatever this boss's name is, but what about the Mother Brain from Metroid?  We also know that they have played it, from the Tandy in [[invisibility]] and "NES Endings" in [[japanese cartoon]].  She only ever appears in profile, though.  Perhaps we could add a might for her?  Now, yes, I know that me introducing this will elicit screams of TTATOT, but it really isn't.--{{User:Onamuji/sig}} 21:13, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

::::I think the angle really make the difference here. Not only there is an eye in the brain, it's also in the exact center, and is seen from the same point as the Contra boss. I think even the creases on the bran itself are similar. {{User:E.L. Cool/sig}} 14:05, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

:Looks like a [[Cacodemon]] to me, especially considering previous references to them. The "moustache" isn't really there (might be on purpose to keep the look of a brain) but you can see a hatched area at the bottom of the picture suggesting a mouth, the Contra boss doesn't have anything that corresponds to that --[[User:91.4.91.91|91.4.91.91]] 13:42, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

I assume the remark in question has something to do with SB's "waste of serif" line? In which case... Sans Serif is an actual font used in word processors; I think it's pretty obvious that that's what he's referencing here. Anyone agree? (Maybe STUFF it?) -Zero.exe

:Typefaces are classified as either [[Wikipedia:Serif|Serif]] or [[Wikipedia:Sans serif|Sans serif]]; serifs themselves are the little modifications that only serif typefaces have. By claiming they're a "waste of serif", to me it seems he's suggesting they're a waste of ink or a waste of letters. The "goof" here is that the typeface used on the box in the email is actually a sans-serif font, and there are no serifs wasted, if we interpret his statement literally as referring to serifs rather than letters/ink. As Jay notes, it also doesn't make much sense to call the UPC itself a waste of anything. -- [[User:Mithent|Mithent]] 01:51, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

::: No, you don't understand, when I try to upload it here, I get this error message. "Permission error The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups Autoconfirmed users, Bots, Sysops." I guess I could dump it at imageshack then link it here if that's cool.

::::Oh, ''that'' kind of permission. Yeah, you'll have to wait about a day or so before you're autoconfirmed; I'll go ahead and upload it. {{User:Trey56/sig}} 02:42, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Okay, i know we usually don't bother with stuff outside the border in the flash file, but this is just odd. At the end, after you click on homestar's feet, there will be a second crappy stuntmask off to the right side... {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 02:58, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

In the DVD version, the Easter egg that shows all the cereals scrolls through them automatically, and music plays.  When I listened to the music, it reminded me of the music from the computer game Chip's Challenge for some reason.  Anyone else think so?  Zombies?  Jelly?  Grapity?

== UPCs... ==

According to my limited knowledge of UPCs, they typically have 12 digits; if a barcode does have 13 digits, it's usually an ISBN. The number in the email has 13 digits. So what I want to know is:
 
-
1. [[Halloween Fairstival|Am I right or am I left?]]
 
-
2. Is this remark-worthy?

There is a new type of barcode that is often referred to as UPC because they have the same usage called EAN/UCC-13, which do happen to look like ISBN-13s, but are not the same. --[[User:Hatkirby|Hatkirby]] 01:41, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Did anyone notice that when you type the UPC seen here on a calculator and flip it upside down it says OBOESH OESEGGS? The return of the mysterious OBOE SHOES, with a side order of EGGS.
