[edit] Deletion

Like Strong Bad Screaming, I think this is just too general and vague to be a page. Other than The Cheat's head exploding, there aren't that many appearances, and all of the appearances are unrelated. I say delete. Has Matt? (talk) 04:42, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Hey. Wiki's suddenly extremely slow for me, so please be patient.
Not many occurences?
"Your Head Asplode", "make homestar's head explode.exe", "Did the quadratic formula explode?", Main Page 10. Some of these are mentions only, but we have 3 explosions aside from The Cheat. If "Food As Phones" can have 2 (though that's a far more unique situation, I accept) it's clear that explosions are a running gag with The Brothers Graw.

I agree with Qermaq, and besides the pyrotechnics i agree with the references on the page. pyrotechnics is more.. just fire than explosion. --Collin 04:48, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
OK, so maybe there are enough appearances, but all of these appearances are still unrelated, and do not seem like much of a running gag to me. In cartoons, exploding is pretty common. Has Matt? (talk) 04:51, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
The relation is that Strong Mad, and by extension TBC, are obsessed with explosions. Well, maybe "obsessed" is the wrong word. But they like to feature them in the toons from time to time. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 04:55, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
Keep, for the reasons stated by Qermaq above. —FireBird|Talk 13:08, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Additions?

What about Strong Bad's website's flash intro?

[edit] Informal Galleries

Am I the only one who's really annoyed by the image galleries with terribly informal and sometimes "fanstuff-y" captions? Blearg... :-X - Joshua 01:26, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't have a huge problem with it, but I can see how others might. --Jay (Talk) 01:28, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
I see this one as useful. The explosions are each unique, that's worth illustrating. The captions lend themselves to edit warfare, though, so perhaps some agreement should be reached concerning the captions. They are inherently fanstuff in some cases here.

Oh, I'm fine with the galleries. It's just the captions we're supposed to be discussing here. (Sorry, I guess I should have pointed that out better.) - Joshua 01:31, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
I was actually just clarifying what I saw as your point. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:33, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Order?

Should the list of explosions be in any sort of order? I'ma gonna try to put it in chronological order, but I'm still not all that sure. link_icon.gifThe Joe(Talk) 16:58, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, it's supposed to be in choronological order, but everyone was just too lazy to do it. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:02, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
Oh my. I was halfway through and I accidently switched pages and now I lost it all. What did you learn today Joe? I learned to use notepad instead of the wiki editor for big undertakings like this. I'ma go take a break then start again later. link_icon.gifThe Joe(Talk) 17:19, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
I finished! Hooraya for me! link_icon.gifThe Joe(Talk) 22:40, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] smoke bombs?

Could we add a smoke bomb section? It's like an explotion without the violence. HaldoHelscome!

That sounds like a good idea I am for it. The-homsarrunner 21:12 2008 Jan 17 (UTC)
