[edit] Your Honor, I Object!

I kind of have to say, I object to the fun fact concerning Strong Bad's family. There have been at least a couple references to the Strong Brothers' parents before, the first of which that comes to mind is in the sbemail "the facts". -- awk

[edit] Coach Z Q

What's up with this thing about Coach Z and basketballs and what 'Matt' thinks? -- Mithent 10:51, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] You can't marry your guitar, Caleb!

An old version of the transcript said that the TV actor said, "You can't marry your guitar, Caleb!" instead of "Can you play your guitar, Caleb?" I listened to the file, and I actually think it's the first line. Who cares that "It don't make sense!!!!11111111111oneoneone"? Nothing on HSR makes sense! It sounds nothing like "Can you play", and everything like "You can't marry".

I'm not going to edit the transcript, though. Then someone would revert it and call me an idiot. :-p mathgrant 16:45, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)

That was me who reverted it and... uh... you're right, it DOES sound like that. My bad. I shoulda checked that one over before reverting (of course, it was in the middle of two clearly bad edits...) --Jay 17:00, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] So long, suckers

[edit] Stupid Uncle Egg

How do we really know Homestar doesnt have a Stupid Uncle Egg?

Er, because the narration says so? </duh> --Jay 21:35, 17 Feb 2005 (MST)

Do you think they will make Stupid Uncle Egg shirts? I want one.

I'm pretty sure that they won't have a Stupid Uncle Egg shirt, for one, he doesn't exist. Also, they never designed him, so if they did make such a shirt, they'd have to design a character that doesn't exist and that nobody cares about except for you. →evin290 10:17, 20 Feb 2005 (MST)
I care about Stupid Uncle Egg, despite the fact that he doesn't exist and apparently makes people very angry. While waiting for the shirt to come out, take a sharpie and write "STUPID UNCLE EGG" on a white tee-shirt to become the first kid in your town to gambol around the campfire in one!

Well, I have a Stupid Uncle Egg. Really, I do. 24.151.40.232

[edit] Cheating the The

  • This is the first time that The Cheat has been directly addressed as just "Cheat" without the word "The" preceeding it, as well as the first time that Strong Bad has been directly addressed by another character with a "The" preceeding his name! This may possibly be an add-on to the senseless names used in this email, although it is more likely a transposition of The Cheat's 'the' to Strong Bad's name.

or

  • When Homestar walks in on Strong Bad and The Cheat, he mixes up their names and greets them as "Cheat and The Strong Bad", transposing the "The". This is a new variation on Homestar's tendency to screw up other peoples' names.

The former was replaced by the latter. The problem is, even if you didn't like the original, the latter fact is utterly useless (basically repeats what's in the transcript.) You know, some people like knowing facts about the first time something happens - that's kind of the reason I split Trivia from Remarks (which is what the new fact is AT BEST) in the first place! --Jay 00:32, 19 Feb 2005 (MST)

I changed it to an alternate form that doesn't have the mention of "The Strong Bad" and doesn't have the unnecessary note appended to the end. I also added a comment requesting that people mention WHAT IS SO HORRIBLE about the fact before they change it or append useless comments to the end. I don't mean to sound arrogant, but BaconS's rewrite was useless incarnate, and we don't need to know WHY it's the first time he's just "Cheat"; the fact simply states that it IS. --Jay 00:06, 20 Feb 2005 (MST)
I hope I don't bother anyone by changing it to the fact that it's the first time any character refers to The Cheat as simply Cheat. And I'm quite sure SB's been referred to as "The Strong Bad" before. --Shingen 18:37, 25 Feb 2005 (MST)
It isn't. He called himself it in pizzaz. --Venusy 01:45, 26 Feb 2005 (GMT)
This is kinda silly, because, in fact, he *isn't* really directly refered to as "Cheat", because it's a Homestar joke. What was written there before (Shingen's edit) made it sound like the brothers screwed up or something (you have to listen to/read the script carefuly to realise otherwise). I have edited to be less misleading (which involves mentioning the fact it was Homestar's screw up - not so bad, it's a fact after all). It's also a bit shorter now, which is good, because it's not a very important fact (it would be if the brothers *had* screwed up).


[edit] Using one of Strong Bad's Gags on my friends at school

I actually used the idea of the white chocolate Speed Stick at school on some of my friends.

Instructions on how to make your own Edible speed stick:

1. Clean out an old Deoderant container very good to get rid of the cake inside. (Make sure that you have CLEANED IT REALLY GOOD!)

2.Melt down the chocolate in your own special way into a liquid.

3. Lubricate the inside of the container with melted butter.

4. Pour the chocolate into the container and then put it into the refridge.

5. Be careful of the butter, it will be greasy! Turn the dial at the bottom to push the cooled chocolate up.

6. Now go ask someone if they want deoderant and eat it right in front of them!

-D -Everybody!

Ya know, when school starts, I think I'll do that do somebody.-Ookelaylay 18:06, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I am sooo trying that. -GG Crono

I had already planned that I was gonna' do that as a prank at school and now I know how! -Unregistered Person (Real Name: Stupid Uncle Egg's Poopaw)

[edit] Closed STUFF

These were on the STUFF page and declined. If you wish to contest these, leave a note here, but don't allow it to be confused with any of the original votes.

[edit] The king eats deodorant...but what does he reference? (REVISED)

The King of Town's quip about the deodorants being "strong enough for a man" is a reference to "Secret" brand deodorant ads, whose slogan used to be "Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman." It's also a reference to Imperial Margarine adverts from the 1970's, wherein the slogan was "Imperial Margarine...with flavour fit for a King!".

  • Now the first one is an obvious Accept, because the Secret deodorant ads are commonly known and widely quoted. The second one I have to Decline, because I don't think that "tasty enough for a king" is close to "flavour fit for a King." --ISlayedTheKerrek 20:21, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. -- tomstiff 20:27, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] The bouncing ball

When Coach Z bounces the basketball, it sounds like a dodgeball instead of a basketball.

  • Decline a bounce is a bounce The_Pardack
  • Accept. First thing I thought of when I heard the bounce. TBC needs a new Foley artist! -- tomstiff 15:07, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
  • DeclineThis was under "goofs" wasn't it? Gads, I hate facts like this. Its a sound effect, so who cares? Donny vs Universe
  • Decline It may sound like a dodge ball, but in the DVD, when Mike Chapman is going against Homestar in Basketball, that's how their basketball sounds. Snailmail

[edit] Pamcakes and Pimecones (DECLINED)

Homestar's use of the word "pimecone" instead of "pinecone" is reminiscent of his usage of the word "pamcakes" instead of "pancakes" in montage.

  • Neutral. I don't really know about this one. It... kinda has merit... hm... →evin290 19:55, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Accept Reasonable, I guess... --Joshua 20:41, 27 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • Second --Trogga 10:53, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline Homestar pronouces 'n's as 'm's; he's always done this and he probably always will. ;The Pardack
    • Comment This is not always true. There are many cases where he pronounces 'n'. I think this fact is worth mentioning, albeit not incredibly interesting. --NFITC1 11:33, 3 Mar 2005 (CST)
    • Comment If he always pronounced 'n's and 'm's, wouldn't he have said "pimecome"? Just saying... --Alun Clewe 01:40, 30 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Strong Decline Homestar has a speech impediment. He does pronounce 'n's as 'm's. This is amazingly obvious so it should not be a fun fact.
    • He never pronounces "Marzipan" as "Marzipam". --Trogga 18:41, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline. And Homestar also pronounces R's as W's, but we're not putting that one in the funfacts either, are we? Kvb 14:10, 1 Apr 2005 (MST)
  • Comment Almost everyone is saying that this is common. But really - other than "pimecone" and "pamcake", when has Homestar EVER switched Ms and Ns? I can't think of even one other time. --Jay 03:21, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Decline. Accurate, but not notable. -- tomstiff 09:38, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Move? Perhaps this would be worth noting in Homestar's character page?--rsl12 17:56, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept What, nobody can answer my question? Then this fact is very likely TRUE! --Jay 19:31, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Move. Substituting 'm' for 'n' may be a running gag... Leomard Sportsinterviews, anyone? --Beatfox 19:28, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Declime I don't think this is true, really. --user: lappy 486 25 Apr

[edit] Bumdumbourge and Totalslava (DECLINED)

Bumdumbourg and Totalslava are obviously loose references to the countries Luxembourg and Bratslava.

  • Decline. Bratslava isn't a country, nor is it even spelled right! The correct spelling is Bratislava, which is the capital of Slovakia. The only one who could even really be considered a reference is Bumdumborge, and even that's a stretch. ISlayedTheKerrek
    • Second The Luxembourg reference is TOO obvious, and the "Bratslavia" too wrong. The former Yugoslavia would work better, but it's still pretty obvious that SB was just making up country-like names off the top of his head (similar to Dortugal and Prance.) --Jay 15:23, 15 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • Yeah, but at least Dortugal and Prance ARE real country names, only with the first letter changed. These ones are just totally random, and not correlating to anything, so... Second. --Shadow Hog 16:27, 15 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Maybe that's why he said it was an obvious reference. And, if anyone cares to know, someone revised this fact, so this STUFF really isn't necessary. --acekirby13 14:27, 2 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • ...and I wrote this one. But give me a break! I'm not from Europe, and I was wrong. Get off my back. Like I said, It's been changed. acekirby13 14:39, 2 Mar 2005 (MST)
      • Why the hell do you think nobody's commented on this since February 15? I know it was changed. We all know it was changed. Why do you think I STUFFed it in the first place? In a way it was to get it to be changed! Word to the wise, acekirby13, next time you try to post a fun fact, make sure it's as factual as possible. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll stand up in a court of HR Wiki law, but at least you won't be laid to ridicule as much as you were here. And if you're this sensitive to criticism, then don't post here at all. Nobody likes a crybaby! ISlayedTheKerrek 08:22, 7 Mar 2005 (MST)
        • Calm down, Kerrek! Nobody likes a smartass either. homestar3.14 12:23, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)
          • Maybe not, but he shouldn't have complained about my STUFFing his fact.ISlayedTheKerrek 06:39, 11 Mar 2005 (MST)
            • Who's complaining? I simply stated why my fact was so dam wrong. Your face doesn't have to turn the color of the Reddest Raddish because of that. And, at least I admitted to such a terrible mistake. I'm sure that more than a couple of users haven't stood up and admitted to their STUFFed facts. ...anyway, its over and done, so lets drop it, or this could turn into a pretty bad flame war. --acekirby13 18:12, 12 Mar 2005 (MST)
              • Whatever, bro. Just be careful what you post in the future, and don't threaten me again. ISlayedTheKerrek 11:26, 15 Mar 2005 (MST)

    • Comment.Nope, I was talking to Islayedthekerrek. No manners at all. Sorry for not making it clearer.--rsl12 18:08, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment Sorry tomstiff, I just want to forget this one, but the fact HAS been changed already, so if you really hate this one, then STUFF the new version. --acekirby13 20:38, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment. I don't hate it ... at least not yet ... JOKE! I didn't realize it had been "closed" until after I voted. My point is ... if it's closed then why is it still open? To paraphrase a vote much further up the page It ain't closed until The Eggman closes it. And with that, let me re-unofficially close what had been unofficially closed. -- tomstiff 20:50, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Lol Thanks for making me look like a fool, man by quoting me. Naw, seriously, I was just angry at myself for making such a dumb fun fact. -acekirby13 20:53, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • D'oh! I had no idea I was quoting you. Any fool-making was purely accidental! Let's get this thing closed before more hilarity ensues! Yoo hoo! The Eggman! Over here! -- tomstiff 21:04, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Too Late! The hilarity be ensuing already! I was just kidding when I said you made me look like a fool, though... '_' -acekirby13 22:44, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad's Poopaw (Declined)

The reference to Strong Bad's poopaw is one of the first four times, after "Homestarloween Party", "The Facts", and "Pizzaz", that Strong Bad is mentioned as having any other relatives besides Strong Sad. The number of times that Strong Bad is mentioned as having any relatives at all, has got to be at least twenty.

  • Decline This is addressed at the bottom of the page in another vote. We don't need any more of these "this is the first time that *so-and-so* does/says/reveals *thus-and-such*. Besides the line "one of the first four times" already makes this non-unique as a "fun fact" and therefore not fun. --TheEggman 22:07, 15 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Decline "Homestar does not have a stupid uncle Egg". C'mon folks, the brothers Chap are making fun of people that make fun facts like this. --Donny vs Universe
  • Decline "Any other relatives besides Strong Sad"? What about Strong Mad? Even if the "fact" were revised to mention Strong Mad along with Strong Sad, though, it still wouldn't be noteworthy enough to be worth accepting. --Alun Clewe 04:07, 17 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] This is a goof?

"In Marzipan's newspaper, the word "easy" should be "easier."" doesn't seem like much of a goof too me. I mean, obviously the newspaper reporter made a goof, but he or she doesn't seem like a very diligent reporter, so it's not necessarily TBC that goofed. I think it's worthy of at least a note.

[edit] Coach Z's Finances

In this e-mail, he claims that he can't afford to go buy the "money-cost variety" of ice cream, yet in lunch special, he orders all kinds of food from Bubs' Concession Stand (hot wings, egg rolls, and a Cod Plank Platter). Has he had a financial crisis somewhere in between? --KoopaTroopa211 21:41, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Hm... Coach Z has always been poor; maybe Bubs' food is really really cheap, and ice cream is really really expensive. — talk Bubsty edits 00:30, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] This is a special announcement...

I know it's not exactly the biggest part of the site, but I think we should have an article about the different narrators in each SBemail or toon. I mean, isn't the narrator here the same one that's used in radio? And what about the Commandos in the Classroom narrator? teeeffoh!

Bigger question is, why haven't you already made one? Be bold Frossty One! — talk Bubsty edits 21:02, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Marzipan's mouth?

has anybody noticed that when marzipan is sitting on the couch, before she talks to homestar, her mouth is shaped the old way (a U) and then after she talks to homestar her mouth is shaped the new way. (less U-ish, more straight.) maybe this should be acknowledged somewhere? posted by DDRfreak1 01:49, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Yeah I noticed, but I don't think it should be acknowledged somewhere, I think that's how her mouth is supposed to be.-Sly Kly

[edit] Pants?!

Coach Z claims he's going to "puke his pants," but later in senior prom Strong Bad expresses his surprise that he is the only person who wears pants, clearly indicating that whatever green clothes-stuff Coach Z wears on his legs are NOT pants. I think this should be noted somewhere, but I don't know where to put it... Fast Forward or Remarks? ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 03:47, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Sláva

There is the remark "Strong Bad refers to a "Totalslava". "Slava" means "fame" or "glory" in multiple Slavic languages such as Czech (sláva) and Russian (слава)." While this is true, in this context (that is, names of cities and whatnot), slava actually means slavic. The name for the people is probably derived from words like Czech slovo = word (those who can speak), and the word sláva (and other language versions) meaning fame or glory is derived from it. Yeah, apparently we used to thing a lot about ourselves =) Places that are called -slava mean they are Slavic, not famous. King Klear 08:39, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
