*If you wait for Homestar to come by and ask them to do his taxes - after he says, "Man, that is one big adding machine" you can click on the [[TROGDOR!]] game to make it say "[[Trogdor]]."

== Fun Facts ==
+
-
=== Trivia ===
+
-
*The label on the disk in the floppy disk container reads "[[Floppy Disk Container#manhunter new york|manhunter new york]]".
+
-
 
+
-
=== Remarks ===
+
-
*On the Monday following [[the show]], there was no new [[Strong Bad Email]].  Instead, there was a post-it note that said "In da Basement".  If you clicked on it, it took you to the aformentioned toon short. 
+
-
*Homestar's total expenditures come out to $8727.07.
+
-
*The top paper in Homestar's stack of papers says "important document #402".
+
-
*The Cheat is using his left hand to play the arcade game.
+
-
*Some of the sounds used in this toon are slightly off from their game counterparts. The peasant burnination sound is higher pitched and the squished peasant sound is played faster.
+
-
 
+
-
=== Glitches ===
+
-
*At the start, the Compy's contrast knob is there. When Homestar comes in it is missing, but you can click it anyway. It doesn't do anything either time.
+
-
 
+
-
=== Inside References ===
+
-
*Pork [[b/w]] beans refers to the Strong Bad Email [[helium]], in which [[Marzipan]] and Homestar discuss the subject briefly. <!--B/W NOW HAS ITS OWN PAGE The abbreviation "w/" for "with" is not used, instead it's "b/w" which was used on old vinyl records and singles to refer to the B-side ("b/w" = "backed with").-->
+
-
*"Hey Strong Bad, can I borrow your [[Strong Bad's Fondue Pot|fondue pot]] again?" refers to [[50 emails]].
+
-
*This is another appearance of the [[Witches' Brew]].
+
-
 
+
-
=== Real World References ===
+
-
*Strong Mad says "[[Wikipedia:Form_W-2|W-2]]!", which is an [[Wikipedia:U.S. Internal Revenue Service|IRS]] tax form.
+
-
*The page title "Quite exciting this computer magic" is a quote from the movie [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088258 "This Is Spinal Tap"].  One of the band members (Viv Savage) says it while playing [[Wikipedia:Atari|Atari]] in the tour bus.
