== Fun Facts ==
 +
*If you look closely at The Cheats' screen you will see an icon called "So Cool a Flash" this was the subject line for the popular Klez Virus.
-
===Trivia===
+
*In [[japanese cartoon]], Strong Bad says a Haiku at the start of the email in which he says "So cool an email".  
-
*According to [[The Brothers Chaps]] during a 2004 university appearance, the weird dream was one [[Mike Chapman|Mike]] actually had. He drew it up as a visual aid for [[Matt Chapman|Matt]], and it served as the inspiration for the email.
+
-
*The Back button appears in the Mac font [[Wikipedia:Chicago (typeface)|"Chicago"]], which is one of the required system fonts for the [[Wikipedia:Mac OS|Macintosh operating system]] versions 7 and earlier.
+
-
*The [[YouTube]] description for this email is "Briefly, Strong Bad describes a weird dream he had."
+
-
 
+
-
===Remarks===
+
-
*The usual menu along the top bar when on a Mac desktop would read, "File Edit View Special Help", but on The Cheat's, it reads, "File Edit Help". Furthermore, there is no trash icon on The Cheat's desktop as per normal with Macs.
+
-
*The Cheat is typing before Strong Bad pushes him out of the way, but when the computer screen is shown moments later, all that's there is the Mac desktop.
+
-
*The Cheat clicks the "Compose" button instead of the "Reply" button.
+
-
*The Cheat has Strong Bad's email on ''his'' computer.
+
-
*The Cheat also has the image of Strong Bad's dream on his computer.
+
-
 
+
-
===Real-World References===
+
-
*The Cheat's screen shows an icon called "So Cool A Flash". This was the subject line for the [[Wikipedia:Klez|Klez computer worm]]. ''(see also Fast Forward)''
+
-
**Also, the window in which the U.S. in underwear appears is called "So Weird a Dream".
+
-
*The Cheat's computer closely resembles an [[Wikipedia:Apple Computer|Apple]] [[Wikipedia:IMac|iMac]].  In the top-left corner of The Cheat's computer is the little rainbow star that appears beside the contrast buttons on the Tandy 400, which corresponds to the trademark rainbow apple in the top-left corner of Apple's older computers (the rainbow apple was replaced with an aquatic-blue apple for [[Wikipedia:Mac OS X|Mac OS X]]).
+
-
*The phrase "Time to check the email" and the tone in which Strong Bad says it is likely a reference to the old 1980s [[Wikipedia:Dunkin' Donuts|Dunkin' Donuts]] commercials where Fred the Baker said "Time to make the donuts" in a very similar sing-song tone.
+
-
*[[Wikipedia:Pudding Pop|Pudding Pops]] are frozen [[pudding]] [[Wikipedia:Popsicle|Popsicle]] desserts originally produced by [[Wikipedia:Jell-O|Jell-O]].
+
-
===Fast Forward===
+
*Also, the screen on which the US in underwear appears is called "So Weird a Dream" - another obvious reference.
-
*A picture of the U.S.A. in briefs was used in the former [[Yahoo Store|Homestar Runner Store]], under "Store Locator".
+
-
*The "girl states" shown in an Easter egg in [[comic]] don briefs when re-clicked at the top.
+
*Note that the state of Louisiana's underpants are only halfway on (and they are on sideways). It's likely a vague reference to Mardi Gras and its reputation for drunken nudity and general wildness.
-
*On The Cheat's computer screen, there is a file called "So Cool A Flash". Strong Bad later says "So cool an email, I thought you would enjoy it!" as his intro in [[japanese cartoon]]. ''(see also Real-World References)''
+
-
==DVD Version==
+
*In the top-left corner of The Cheat's computer is the little rainbow star that appears beside the contrast buttons on the Tandy 400.
-
*The Easter egg stops at Florida.
