[edit] JD

anyone have any thoughts on what "JD" stands for ?

Julian Day. Typically used by astronomers (and the loose base for Star Trek's "stardate" calendar), when mapped to the Gregorian calendar, it's the raw number of days that have elapsed since Monday, January 1, 4713 BC. There's also some decimal thingy involved that I don't fully understand that also gives the time of day. Right now it's 2453308.89444 JD in Eastern time zone. --Southpaw018 18:28, 30 Oct 2004 (MST)

I belive it stands for Jack My-last-name-that-starts-with-a-D. Possibly a stretch, but I sent in an e-mail that week and signed it "From JD" Occasional_JD --220.245.180.130 06:20, 17 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Rather than the bafflingly obscure "Julian day," I'm sure that "JD" was meant to allude to juris doctor, the technical term for a law degree. "JD" as an abbreviation for "Julian date" is an unbelievable stretch, while "JD" as an abbreviation for juris doctor is incredibly common.

Because a legal term makes more sense than a date system in context when used near BC and AD? --phlip TC 07:24, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Yes, a legal term in widespread use makes more sense than a term that's so unbelievably obscure even Google questions its existence. The old saying goes like this: "When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras."

Except that Strong Bad offers "JD" as a contrast to "AD" and "BC". Julian Day is a date system, like AD and BC. "Juris doctor" is not a date system. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 23:37, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, because the writers have never, ever engaged in non sequitur. Please.

Please explain why "juris doctor" makes more sense in this context than Julian date. - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

JD is a common nickname for people who's name has the same innitials. For instance, I used to have a friend I called JD. ChurchPunk 2:47 PM, November 11, 2007 (EST)

Yeah, I really assumed that the joke was that he gets e-mails from the occasional person named JD. I never knew about the astronomical "JD." I think that's way too obscure to apply here (and, there wouldn't be a joke). 24.22.64.228 09:43, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

It actually makes the most sense as Julian Day, since it's in the context of dates and calendars. — DeFender1031*Talk 10:30, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Am I the only one to have thought it was Juvenile Delinquent?

[edit] Kermit the Frog laugh

Anyone else think that the way that H*R's puppet laughs at the end of the puppet show is similar to the way Kermit T. Frog used to laugh (when making similar jokes) on The Muppet Show? --CorruptPanda

Yes --70.106.214.243 17:26, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

All puppets are like that Orange Star - T - C

It sounded more like Ernie to me. Pgj1997 03:24, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] "Malarkey"

I want to put this in the main page for this email... "Malarkey" may refer to Buffalo Bills head coach Mike Mularkey. Is that all right?

Nope, malarkey is a synonym for nonsense; look it up in a thesourus. --homestar3.14 22:49, 26 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Two pencils goof?

To the best of my knowledge, no one has caught this. After Strong Bad gives The Cheat his "payment," he contemplates what he is going to with his "tons of new stuff" (a sharp pencil and a cantaloupe). At this point, you can see the tip and eraser of a second pencil resting on the keyboard behind Strong Bad's head. Strong Bad probably never had two pencils to begin with, so in my opinion, this is a goof. I can provide further evidence by pointing out that (earlier) this was were Strong Bad's pencil was placed or held before he turned back to the computer and typed "Ahhhh, look at him go. So excited, so naive." Then when The Cheat returns with the cantaloupe, a new pencil seems to have been created which rests in front of the keyboard (which is now the pencil Strong Bad uses). The old pencil seen on the keyboard seems not to have been deleted. BazookaJoe 02:08, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

I just saw this email yesterday and saw the pencil! ya definently have to put that!--Robotawesomeness 20:56, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Is there a link to the puppet short?

Just curious. --Ian911299

Dunno Don't Care

Well we have links to all the other puppet easter eggs found in cartoons. If the puppet easter egg in this one has a link, we should post it. Does anyone else agree? --Ian911299

Nevermind! I just found and posted it! Ha ha ha! I'm the best! Yeah, I rock! I did it all on my own! I can make it on my own! Impressed? --Ian911299

Um... no. — talk Bubsty edits 22:11, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Doreauxgard Easter Egg

Is it just me, or is the clickable area doing nothing? ColdReactive

[edit] Strong Bad's final line?

When Strong Bad says "Whoa. Forgot about that one," why does he say it that way? Did he do a bunch of graffiti previously, and he'd forgotten to list this one? Or is the line just to set up Doreauxgard's line? --Coredumperror 06:20, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Lost forever?

Did we ever get the "Stone Tablet" and "Papyrus" emails screenshots, or a link to a mirror, in time? Can we confirm these with pictures or something? I think people would like to see them.--Jellote wuz here 03:47, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
