[edit] Picture

Where did this picture of Whatsit come from? Could we instead get a replacement picture that captures Whatsit in the realms of the H*R universe? —BazookaJoe 05:00, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)

It's the Whatsit from the Theme Song Video. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 05:49, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Oh! Sure enough. —BazookaJoe 12:55, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Capitalization

Okay. I've seen a few different instances of capitalization here, and its either used as "Whatsit" or "whatsit." I just had someone correct my capitalization, although I see many other instances of it in this article and others. Should it remain capitalized or un-capitalized? teeeffoh! 22:12, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Curious: beginning of sentence and "Whatsit All About" aside, when is it capitalized? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 22:14, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
These sentences:
In narrator, Strong Bad makes a preview for a movie called "Whatsit All About?", which features The Poopsmith with his pile of whatsit.
A picture of Whatsit also appears on the final page of the book in pop-up.
There, and there. I haven't looked at any of the other articles, but those should be checked. teeeffoh! 22:17, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
The first one wasn't capitalized outside of the mock movie title, and the second one is fixed. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 22:19, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
Cool, but is it fixed in all of its appearances in other articles? teeeffoh! 22:21, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Whatsit/Crap

Why can't they just cal "whatsit" "Crap"?It had a picture of whatsit in pop-up but instead, Strong bad said "Crap Flap" instead of "Whatsit Flap". Can they decide on a name for Whatsit/Crap some time this century?--Gir007 01:40, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

They used "crap flap" in pop-up because it rhymed, like "ab tab" and "flab tab". Other than that, most of the time, Whatsit is the item, while Crap is just an interjection. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 01:50, 22 March 2006 (UTC)


[edit] Name?

I was going to do The Poopsmith's Whatsit as a page but then i found this one. But all of the examples of whatsit on the page "belong" to the Poopsmith, so maybe we could change the page's name? --Acam30 00:09, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

nah, just plain whasit is a good name. Why is the possessive necessary? — Defender1031*Talk 00:10, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] First Time it's Mentioned?

When is the first time Whatsit is called by its name?— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 06:36, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Greenish substance

Whatsit in MLS was green and that kind on the Poopsmith's gloves only appeared on that toon. It was a little green in A Jumping Jack Contest. 198.228.228.42 23:13, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Okay... and? — Defender1031*Talk 00:31, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

...What? - Catjaz63 17:16, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
That's a complete non-sequitur... and yet also it's completely true and in context. Since everything is drawn in Flash, the graphics are all vector-based. Not like StrongBadZone, of course, but it is vector-based nonetheless. Everyone and everything (except of course for the occasional JPEG or MPEG they toss in) is vector based, and that includes the pile-o-whatsit. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 17:35, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
