* Strong Bad's test phrase is an old broadcasting cliché. The phrase has been used to test the levels of the '''F''' and '''SH''' sounds in audio signals for recording, public address and broadcast. When those sounds are too "hot," sounding like intense hisses, the mic can be moved or covered to reduce the "swishiness."

*Judging by Strong Sad's T-shirt, "The Sturge" is short for [[Wikipedia:Sturgeon|sturgeon]], a large, rare fish and is an obvious spoof of radio stations named after animals. For example, ''[[IMDb:tt0077097|WKRP in Cincinnati]]'' had the mascot "the WKRP Carp."
