Does anyone notice Strong Sad's thumb in this short? It's placed in a slightly humaner position. It only applies to (our) right, but I think it's worth mentioning.!


I'm pretty sure that TBC speculated on the Poopsmith as the local mailman before, on some DVD commentary. Does anybody know which one it was and whether this should be mentioned in the article? --Cass from Germany 09:18, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

In secret identity's commentary, they speculated that Coach Z is the mailman. Is that the one you're referring to? Hagurumon 09:26, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Oops, must have confused some things. Thanks for clearing that up! --Cass from Germany 09:44, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

McDonald's Reference?

When Strong Bad says "The Compé, because flat-panel sophistication demands made-up words", is he referencing those McCafé commercials? Just a thought, free 13:25, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't think so; Café is a real word, just with Mc in front. Compé is not a real word. OpenSourceGreg 14:10, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
But the commercials did make up fake words, other than just café. They replaced the "e" in regular words with "é" to form fake ones, like "commuté". Actually, I was reminded of those commercials, too! Hagurumon 14:13, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
I was reminded of those comemrcials, also. The making up of words with ending é's, the fancying up of compy to compé, and even the fancying up of joke to joké. it reminds me of the MCCafé commercials. — Young Roy
Aaaand me too. In particular, the notion of the added é making everyday objects more special (or, though McDonald's doesn't say so outright, more quasi-European). AbdiViklas 17:50, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't think it's a reference to McDonalds. In TGS #11 the phrase "trés cuté" was used, pronouncing é in cuté the same as it's used in this cartoon. Considering that TBC have used accented e's similarly in the past makes me doubt that this is a reference to a recent advertisement campaign. That and referencing a McDonald commercial would be really lame.-- 00:34, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, annony, but this time they're using the "everything is better with accents" campaign that McDonald's started. ("Accent, don't fail me now!") free 12:30, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Trivial Trivia

Eighty-thousand pennies is 800 dollars.

Is this obvious fact really necessary? --Periodic Table Greg 14:44, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I would leave it in, but that's just me. i say take it to STUFF. lol The Knights Who Say Ni 16:10, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
I found it helpful. Originally I thought 80.000 pennies would be only 80 dollars, because I'm not too familiar with your currency system. (Edited because UI realized I just suck at math. However, my point still stands.) --Cass from Germany 16:19, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
It's best to keep it just for those who might not know US currency too well. Heimstern Läufer 16:22, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

new design

Anyone else notice that Stong Sad has a new design is this toon?-- 16:33, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, apparently. Nevermind. -- 16:39, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

new pages

Should we have a page for all the new computers? Or even better, just have a page for ALL other computers, including like the Block & Zappy, and have like Lappy 486 (Main articleLappy 486) it could work.--Crudely Drawn Cupcake 20:37, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

You mean something like this? —NFITC1talk 03:58, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
