Fun Facts

Explanations

  • "Bonjour" is French for "Good day"
  • "Amigos" is Spanish for "friends"
  • "Je m'appelle" means "My name is" in French.

Remarks

  • This answering machine came out in June of 2003, but the answering machine blew up from Strong Bad's prank call in personal favorites, which came out in April of 2003.
  • Messiagio is close to the Italian word for "message", but not quite. It's actually "messaggio".

Inside References

  • Strong Bad prank calling as a radio sweepstakes announcer is a reference to Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 4.0, where Marzipan's outgoing message states that Strong Bad's "radio contest" prank call is her favorite.
