[edit] Seperate Lady?

Shouldn't Lady have her own page?

I don't think so. She's not really separate from Shut Up. --DorianGray 20:32, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
She's a lady and Strong Bad tells her to "Shut up". Ergo, "Shut Up, Lady". She's part of the gag and a separate article would be a violation of Once and Only Once. – The Chort 20:52, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Well, as a recurring character, she should have a page. Perhaps it could be merged with this one?

She's never appeared outside of this gag, hence, they are one and the same. — Defender1031*Talk 17:18, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
There is no single lady. The lady who thinks that dead Strong Bad is peaceful doesn't sound like the lady who comments that things are sinful. -- Mithent 19:09, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Nor does the lady who says the Biscuitdoughhandsman paper towel is exorbitantly absorbent. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra
Shut up, ladies! --Homestar tiger
I just discovered, she does make one non-told-to-shut-up appearance in candy product... still don't think it's worth it though... — Defender1031*Talk 08:27, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Possible joke

I perceived the joke to be that the mystery voice first seemed to belong to a stereotypical gay man, and then we the audience are chided for having thought that when it is revealed that it belongs to a woman... anybody else take it that way? Shelikescloth

I don't think that's what's intended. The reason it sounds a bit like a man with a high voice rather than a woman likely has nothing to do with stereotypes of gay men, but rather with the fact that it's voiced by a man (i.e., Matt). Heimstern Läufer 05:40, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, first of all, it's more than just a "high voice"; it's also the intonation, and stereotypically "feminine" phrasing (e.g referring to food as "sinful") The other question is: why does the other character in each case say "shut up lady" instead of just "shut up"? It seems like perhaps the creators felt the need to make it clear that the voice was a woman's, precisely because they knew that it would be perceived as a man's... and in particular, not what is considered stereotypically "masculine" man, if I can put it that way for lack of a more neutral way to say it... Maybe they did not set out to make a gay joke (I was a bit surprised at them when I first heard what I thought was gay-mockery) but ended up having to either make one or cut the joke entirely, since they couldn't do a convincing female voice...
In any case, there's clearly no real consensus here, so this discussion probably doesn't belong in the article itself. Shelikescloth 15:33, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Shut Up Lady

I understood that Strong Bad was telling the "Shut Up Lady" to shut up. It could be the same as saying "Shut up, Pom Pom". Monkeytender 17:33, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

It's speculation that "Shut Up Lady" is her name. Whatever the case, it's clearly said as a sentence in every other case, and the sentence gets a comma, so the page gets a comma. --Jay (Talk) 17:34, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm probably wrong, but I thought that I heard SB say "Shut up, Shut Up Lady." If that's the case, Shut Up Lady is her name.
You're not wrong, he did say "Shut up, Shut Up Lady." However, Strong Bad was repeating words during that entire sentance ("sort of like a froo-froo desert from a she-she restaraunt-restaraunt"), so he could have just been continuing that pattern.

[edit] Bubs

I have the distinct memory of Bubs telling the lady to shut up in one toon. Am I imagining this? -- 17:01, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

I can't recall Bubs saying it but I'll try to sift through the toons to see.--Record307 Talk/Contribs 17:03, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
Are you sure your not thinking of The Thnikkaman? A Website 17:23, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, The Thnikkaman says shut up kid but from what I can tell he never said shut up lady.--Record307 Talk/Contribs 17:30, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Should be moved as “Shut up, lady!” instead of in title case

This should be moved into the sentence case version rather than a title case version. --noofus 00:03, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Hm, I was gonna say all running gag pages are in title case, but that doesn't seem to be the case just from a cursory look at the subcategories of Running Gags (and even the subcategories themselves are capitalized differently from the parent category!). Seems like a consistent capitalization standard is needed, unless there's a reason some running gag pages are sentence case and some are Title Case.
