[edit] Joint Custody

DELETED Look at this... Strong Bad and Bubs SHARE Strongbadia via a treaty. RHRN

Ah; now I've gone back and read it more carefully. The important line is
{The page turns to show Strong Bad handing Bubs the rent check.} STRONG BAD: {voiceover} At last, we reached an agreement to peacefully co-exist in this land, after I gave him my first and last months' rent deposit.

I think that pretty clearly says Strong Bad rents from Bubs. So really Bubs owns it. Strong Bad's clearly feels like it's his, since he introduces it as his kingdom in flag day, and Bubs never seems to show any interest in it, but unless Bubs gave it to him at some point we don't know about, Strong Bad's still a tenant. —AbdiViklas 20:18, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

What's a tenant? RHRN

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] Until next week...

This is the last email in which Strong Bad says "so until next week", a regular closing line for early emails.

  • Severe decline. Since he says this in many emails, it's irrelivant which one is the "last" one. →evin290 12:57, 1 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Accept for now. Once he says it again, though, it should be changed. ISlayedTheKerrek 07:28, 2 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline. Well, this is a stupid Fun Fact. Do you know for sure this is the last one? And if so, are you some kind of future seer? And if so, what kind of future do you see? Do you use this information for good, or for awesome? Would you like to join forces with Strong Bad? He just happens to be the greatest criminal mind of our time. --Shadow Hog 15:36, 3 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Accept He means it's the last one so far genius. 68.4.92.98 12:10, 7 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Comment. What is with the attitude? Are you badamn_187, by any chance? ISlayedTheKerrek 16:04, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline ...for the simple fact that he actually hadn't said it in a LONG time before this e-mail. I'm not going through them all to find the next closest time he says it, but a slightly more acceptable form would be, "This is the only time since [whatever] that Strong Bad has ended an e-mail with a line that includes 'So until next week'..." and even then, it's a tenuous item. --TheEggman 09:29, 12 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline. This shouldn't have been STUFFed. It should have just been deleted. --tomstiff 22:04, 15 Mar 2005 (MST)


[edit] Fishcorn

I'm pretty sure I've heard this joke before... the approximate wording was "and then the Indians taught us how to grow corn by planting it with fish" "or maybe they were just trying to grow fishcorn!" so.. either a coincidence, or that comic or TBC are joke thieves! :O

I found it in a Dilbert TV series (1999-2000) cartoon:

Dilbert: I've come up with the greatest improvement in food production since Squanto.

Dogbert: Squanto?

Dilbert: He showed that if you put a fish with your corn seeds, it fertilizes the soil.

Dogbert: How do you know he wasn't trying to grow a fish-tree? Maybe he was too lazy to dig his own hole.

Hope that helps. (Sign in, please. It's the greatest day) Strong Vader 17:13, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Shanama

I made the indented entry regarding Strong Bad's singing mistake in "O Shanama." I was thinking about putting it as a Goof, but I wanted to have it together with the Real-World Reference (O Canada). What do you guys think? Terlet Brush 03:15, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Cheering

The cheering mentioned in the Remarks section is actually found in many other cartoons. One example is mascot. There are many more. Does this qualify as an inside joke or something?

Check out Sound Effects. --DorianGray

[edit] Houghton Mifflin

I recently found out the correct pronunciation for Houghton Mifflin, which was something I'd always wondered about. Should we add it as a sub-fact in the real-world references? It's pronounced hoe-ton mif-lin. I might even be able to upload a sound sample of it; I heard the correct pronunciation on an accompanying CD for a phonetics course (so I'm sure they'd have the correct pronunciation).

[edit] Tiny thing to add...

This is another reference of [eggs.]

[edit] Ketchup on eggs

Who here likes it?

This would probably be better on the forum. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 03:21, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
First of all, I do love ketchup on eggs. Second of all, I first got the idea when I was little because there was a children's book about (I believe) the American Revolution. In said book, a colonist wanted the freedom to have his eggs with ketchup. I just wish I could remember what the book was called so I could add it as a real-world reference… --Cleveland Rock 20:19, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Blinking?

Eggs are not a fruit!

In the Easter Egg where Homestar addresses the imaginary masses, when he blinks his eyes are black instead of gray. -24.118.124.166 03:05, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

I just uploaded a screenshot. Homestar's eyes doesn't look black to me. — Ngamer01 19:21, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Which would be really funny, because Homestar's eyes do look black in the very picture you uploaded. Well, not RGB #000000 black, but at least a significantly darker gray than everything else in the picture. --Fourth of Jay (Fireworks!) 20:27, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Huh. Zoomed out the eyes sorta match Homestar's colored outline, but now that I zoom in on Microsoft Paint... Yeah, I stand corrected. — Ngamer01 18:07, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
