[edit] Huh?

This could also be a reference to an intro from "Sport som finns" in "En himla mnga program" of "Galenskaparna & After Shave" html).

Does this have anything to do with this email? - Drhaggis 14:34, 16 Sep 2004 (MST)

I dunno what that's about, but doesn't this email say "bullocks" instead of "bollocks"? Did this get censored out?

[edit] Never mind the B-Word

Given the family-friendly nature of this Wiki, shouldn't the title of that album be censored? --Upsilon

I doubt it, because since most people who access the Wiki are Americans, they wouldn't seen "bullocks" as a curse word, or even anything inappropriate.

But H*R has its share of British fans, and it's not as if this site is just for America. --Upsilon

From what I underdtand, the policy regarding approtriateness on this wiki is that if it's shown on H*R, it's acceptable. -Clever Ben

I think in this set of early sbemails, the rule is that if you don't understand it, you're not old enough to understand it. AK47x2 20:46, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
It's spelled "Bollocks" with an "o", not "Bullocks". I have the album. --Jangles5150 12:46, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Dominantly English?

"Dominantly English sport of cricket?" -- The Aussies might have something to say about that.

You're right. I'll change that. --Upsilon

[edit] Tough one to time

this is a tough one to time, because the paper doesn't come down until you click on an easter egg... I think the running time may need to be changed. Anyone else have thoughts on how to time this one? --DMurphy 15:24, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)

I say when the newspaper comes up. That's when the transcript ends, as well as the Flash Seek Bar. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]

[edit] Same Screen?

I don't understand what the fun fact "This is the first email with an Easter egg that opens on the same screen as the Strong Bad email" is supposed to mean. Don't all Easter eggs open on the same screen? 05:58, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Nope. The "depressio" and Bookazon eggs didn't. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 13:13, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] I swear...

...that the Announcer said "the entire royal dominate to tears." Seek Bar

That doesn't really make much sense. I think its royal family. — talk Bubsty edits 21:02, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
It's definetly royal family. If anything, it could be confused by domily, which of course, isn't a word.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 21:07, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

[edit] I cant believe he said that

This voice also sound like one of the warner brothers, wacko. csours 17:43, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Wakko wasn't English, though... Dunno why he'd be offended. --DorianGray
I thought it sounded like one of the beatles....-Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifHomsar7(Hom · Sar)Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif
Ringo, to be exact... (see "Real Word Refrences") --Nom_anor67 01:21, 7 August 2006
Tress MacNeille (sp?) did Wakko as Ringo deliberately. That's still probably where a lot of american kids heard their first scouse accent.. that or Mister Conductor.
I'm a little late on this response but but Wakko on the Animaniacs was voiced by Jess Harnell. ~
I thought it sounded like that, too. Tailsfanj9

I would say that it sounded more like George Harrison, which is what I expected to see on the hrwiki page.

[edit] Brought The Royal Family To Tears?

what did strong bad say (besides screw all y'all) to offend them? i think we deserve to know. -Image:Homsar-in-motion.gifHomsar7(Hom · Sar)Image:Homsar-in-motion.gif

I think it's better left up to the viewer's imagination, where it's sure to be more outrageous. --DorianGray

[edit] Hey guys.. Cool site

Gah, aren't I sad writing in to you guys instead of getting on with my life?!

All I wanted to say was: it was amazing to be chosen, I'm just so sad I didn't include a surname, cus then at least my friends would maybe believe me when I claimed to be the author of e-mail 22. :)

Mark (author of the email referenced in SBEmail22)

You're Mark(e)? Well, what do you think of America? --Jnelson09 22:45, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] I'm not sure about the Ringo Starr one...

Somebody sounding suspiciously like Ringo Starr says "I can't believe he said that" at the end of the press conference. This could be in reference to the infamous John Lennon quote stating that The Beatles were "more popular than Jesus" and the uproar that ensued.

Okay, first of all, the Liverpudlian reminds me more of George Harrison than Ringo, but that's just me. But unless one of The Beatles were quoted as saying "I can't believe he said that", I'm skeptical of whether this warrants a reference. Stapler 19:17, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

I agree, and I am removing it until it can be proven a reference in accordance with HRWiki:Standards#Real-World_References. And I quote:
For references, please only add the fact if you are CERTAIN that is a direct reference to exactly what you add.
This is a voice that might sound like ringo starr and might be a vague reference to a situation where someone might have said such a line. It is not a direct quote or reference. Furthermore:
If there's any reasonable doubt, or it's a reference to "(this) and (this) and (this other thing) and (lots of other similar things)", or if it refers to something which is itself a reference to something else, please add it to the Talk page or the STUFF page before adding it to the article.
This is certainly doubtable, and so it should be brought up here on the talk page rather than on the article itself. This is not an isolated incident, this is a case of people scraping for references that aren't really there, and I unfortunately see it on the wiki more and more. The rule is "not-a-reference until proven a reference," and therefore does not belong. Baleeted. DeFender1031 19:41, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
I think this fact should stay, but change "Somebody sounding suspiciously like Ringo Starr" to a more accurate "a person with a Liverpuddlian accent". Why else would they use *that* accent? – The Chort 20:21, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] First Easter Egg?

What about Duck Pond? The Trivia section claims that this is the first SBemail to contain an Easter Egg. This is not true, as Duck Pond contains an Easter Egg, the Duck Pond Simulator. Shouldn't this be corrected?

No, it IS the first, that's like in Arcade Game that playing Trogdor. Meaty85203 Talk To Me... Serously 17:23, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Donkey kong background?

Does anyone else think the tune strong bad is humming at the start of this e-mail sounds just like the background music in donkey kong?

Actually, now that you mention it, it sounds quite like that indeed. --DorianGray 05:24, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes. Total yes. — Defender1031*Talk 05:28, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
So much so that Donkey Kong has been mentioned as the source of the song in this article for years now. -- WHAT'S HER BEAK! 07:09, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
oops, sorry, I missed it in the real world refrences because I kind of expected it to be described as such in the transcript for some reason.

[edit] The Announcer?

I can maybe understand The Announcer being the one from the crowd asking Strong Bad the question Easter egg, but I don't think he's the one that said "Cor blimey". DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 12:05, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Release Date

What's with the release date on this one? Why is it in September '02 when the emails before and after it are in April of '02? MenacingBanjo 22:17, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

They actually skipped this one. That is, they went to email 23 right after email 21 by accident. They later went back and made email 22, hence the inconsistant release date. --DorianGray 22:20, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

[edit] What about "credit card"?

  • This is the first email that Strong Bad edits.

credit card came first, both in number and chronologically. Why doesn't it count? --Ingiald 17:01, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

You know, that's a good point. --DorianGray 21:47, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad's opening

The tune Strong Bad sings in his introduction could just as well be the opening music from Elvis Presley's "Don't Be Cruel". Doesn't that seem like it could also be what the Brothers Chaps were referencing, especially since they had referenced an Elvis song in their semi-previous email? Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:16, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, they're the same tune... So it's hard to tell. There's a strong case for both, given the proximity to the other elvis reference and TBC's clear affinity for Donkey Kong. If there was anything else connected to the song that could tie it to either... but alas, there is not, and thus I have no opinion as to which one it actually is. I'd lean towards DK, but i'd have no problem having both listed. — Defender1031*Talk 01:07, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
On further thought, the tempo is what makes me lean towards DK. — Defender1031*Talk 17:10, 20 April 2010 (UTC)


Just thinking; it says on the page, "When the BANNED IN THE UK Banner appears the screen goes back to black even if you turned the contrast all the way up to green" - isn't this because the entire screen goes black and white? I mean, it should really be a sort-of light grey, but still. 10:58, 27 November 2009 (UTC)JimmyPiranha

[edit] name

Why doesn't the e-mail have a proper name? Jc iindyysgvxc 07:13, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Real world references

I think that the voice at the end which you've currently got as referencing Ringo from the Beatles is however a reference to the voice of Ozzy Osbourn. --Still Homsar 09:38, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Screw All Y'all

When I first saw it I heard Strong Bad say "I say...screw all y'all". Wolf O'Donnel 00:21, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

[edit] should we change this?

I was looking at the little navbar thingy atop the page, and it's placed between cartoon, & little animal. However, this doesn't reflect the toon's release date, which was in-between vacation & invisibility. i really think this needs to be fixed. TMBGLOVER 22:57, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

It's not meant to reflect the release date, it's the numeric chronology of sbemails. 22 goes between 21 and 23. It's just that in 99% of all other cases, most release dates will also reflect their number in the list. --DorianGray 22:59, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

But if it’s not release date based, this will confuse newcomers to the fanbase. We are the Homestar knowledge base, and we need to have the correct facts. We need to fix this. TMBGLOVER 23:19, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

Where does it claim to be release date based? Like DorianGray said, it's the chronology of emails. Compare the order they are listed in on the DVD - 21, 22, then 23. In addition, the release date is listed at the top of the page, on Strong Bad Email Release Dates, and the explanations section remarks on the release date irregularity. -- Bleu Ninja 23:28, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
