[edit] I'm a song from the huddled mass.

This might not be a strong enough connection to actually put on the page, so I wanted to get people's input first. The cadence and tone of the line "I'm a huddled mass" very much reminded me of the way Strong Bad delivered Homsar's lines during the fake interview in interview. Anyone else think so? — Defender1031*Talk 21:44, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

I can't really see the resemblance, and really, a non-sequitur sentence doesn't really correlate to Homsar. - Catjaz63 22:09, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
I said "cadence and tone" not "it happens to be a non-sequitur". And in any case, if "a non-sequitur sentence doesn't really correlate to Homsar", then "a guy who spends a bunch of time editing a wiki about dumb animal characters when he really ought to be doing other things" doesn't correlate to me. — Defender1031*Talk 22:26, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
"A guy who goes into great detail to pick apart every piece and reference of a cratoon of dumb animal characters instead of typing other stuff in order to pay for his food, shelter, and other goods and services that are necessary to his lifestyle." is pretty much every user here. - Catjaz63 22:38, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Nah, you've also got "A kid who goes into great detail to pick apart every piece and reference of a cratoon of dumb animal characters instead of doing his homework so that he can learn what he needs to to one day pay for his food, shelter, and other goods and services that are necessary to his lifestyle." — Defender1031*Talk 22:43, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
I see West Paunch, I see Prance, I see a "major nerd who needs to do homework over summer break-cation and still puts it off to argue with other major nerds."El Psychic Der Radroach 22:53, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Ah, but it also correlates to a lot of Strong Sad's lines, as well as Strong Bad's attempts to mock Strong Sad. Compare it to "That was the happiest I've ever been", for example. That said, correlation does not equal causation. So I don't think it's close enough (or easy enough to explain) to put on the page.
Now, two correlations do equal an underwater reef... -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 22:57, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
It's a reference to The New Colossus, a sonnet written by Emma Lazarus, and engraved on a bronze plaque in the Statue of Liberty. — (Talk | contribs) 03:30, 23 October 2015 (UTC) (left unsigned)
I added that to the page a while ago, Anonny. If you take a look at the top of this section, you'll see we're talking about the cadence and tone of what he says, not the words themselves. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 03:42, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Death page edits

Just to make sure I'm not missing something, on the "In the underworld" page, there's no correlation between the (dentistry) edits to the picture and the (recycled blogs) text edits, right? --Neumannz 15:58, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

I think the comment about recycled blogs and life hacks is referencing the trend of blogs and YouTube channels that flood with content entirely comprised of "life hacks". Though, that's just my two cents. — Catjaz63 16:57, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Alternate Image Suggestion

Would anyone mind if I suggested replacing the picture with one that actually has the story's title characters in it? I'm thinking the scene where the Porridge Maiden looks at herself in the mirror, and asks what she is. BBG 04:10, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Yo! I'm the guy who put that original image and caption. (and built most of this page) I think that's a pretty cool idea, so crazy go nuts and upload a new file and change the caption if you want. - Catjaz63 04:12, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Except maybe don't use that link, or you'll end up uploading over a file called "WisdomTeethdSSadandSBad.png" with the porridge maiden, who has no business being named that. — Defender1031*Talk 06:14, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Easter egg differences

The YouTube version has Strong Bad responding differently to Strong Sad's drugged ramblings in the Easter Egg than the site version. Don't know the best way to express that on the page, though. --Neumannz 18:50, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] If your Mr. or Mrs. is anything like MY Mr. or Mrs.

Strong Sad is slurring, so it's hard to tell, but I hear "Mr. Strong Fast" (sounding like "Misser" due to the slur), not "Mrs." as the transcript currently reads. The way I hear it, there's an R sound followed by a drawn out S at the beginning of "Strong", though I realize that the people hearing it as "Mrs." probably don't hear an R sound and hear the drawn out S as being both the end of "Mrs." and the beginning of "Strong". It's certainly a tough call, and it's easy to hear it either way, so what does everyone else think? — Defender1031*Talk 10:57, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

I actually always thought it was "Mr.", and was surprised to see "Mrs." in the transcript, but after listening again, I suppose it could be heard either way. --GetSchwifty 07:01, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Subtitle fix

Can you fix the subtitles in this?

I don't see anything wrong with 'em. You might want to be more specific. And, sign your comments. Lira (talk) 00:25, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
When I tried watching the subtitles, it just said "loading flash" for a really long time. Perhaps that's what he was referring to. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:54, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
They work fine for me. - Catjaz63 03:13, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Broached
