This toon, coupled with Biz Cas Fri 3 and Where's an Egg? mark the third mention of Mancuso. Running bit, now? 00:39, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Done and done. --DorianGray 19:52, 21 October 2008 (UTC)


This toon gets REALLY butchered when viewed on the Wii. Things like text, costumes, and body parts disappear. -- 19:32, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Put it under "Gliches", subcategory "when viewed on Wii". That Game Dude 386 20:50, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
No, don't. It's a common issue of the Wii browser, which has a lower version of Flash Player. We don't need to mention it every time. --DorianGray 20:52, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
True. Maybe make an article listing the pages that have issues on the wii?--Flytape8490 22:21, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't think so. For all I know, the Wii's faulty Flash player may glitch at unique spots of cartoons every time... so... no. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 22:55, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
It isn't faulty- its just an older version. And it isn't so much a glitch as it is backwards compatibility issues. It's almost like using firefox to view a page that was written utilizing IE's loose rendering engine. It just gets messed up, there isn't anything actually wrong. Plus, there isn't too much unique about these errors. They show up consistently each time. If each wii has the same browser with the same flash player, and watch the same file- the error is going to be reproduced, unless there is a hardware glitch also affecting the playback.--Flytape8490 04:19, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Gender or Identity?

Should we consider Coach Z wearing the Marzipan costume an incidence of Gender Confusion, Identity Confusion, or, as I think we should, both? That Game Dude 386 20:49, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

I mean, the costume is based on Marzipan, but it is debatable whether or not the costume looks anything like Marzipan. Also, since Coach Z said it was a "Coach Z costume", he clearly didn't know it was based on Marzipan, making it more of a gender confusion, rather than an idenity act. There's my arguments. That Game Dude 386 20:57, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
It is cross-dressing, which is ALWAYS separate from gender confusion. It's identity confusion because he confused marzipan's costume for his own. — Defender1031*Talk 21:12, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Or he confused himself for marzipan - Wecannotbesaved 22:27, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
That too. — Defender1031*Talk 22:31, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
But it is also a gender confusion, since he's wearing a bikini and still thinks it's based on him. That costume, as I've said before, bears little to no resemblence to the real Marzipan. Yes, it is identity confusion, but, by definition, it is also a gender confusion. It's just like when a male character thinks he's pregnant, which is both a pregnacy gag and a gender confusion. That Game Dude 386 00:25, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
And, no cross-dressing is usually when a character dresses up as the opposite gender, not actually thinks that they are that character, so cross-dressing and gender confusion can combine. That Game Dude 386 00:31, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
I hear your argument, i still think it doesn't apply. He's cross dressing and confusing himself for marzipan, not confusing himself for a girl in general. — Defender1031*Talk 02:00, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Marzipan=girl. The only girl, too. I cant see why it can't be both. That Game Dude 386 22:04, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Marzipan=SPECIFIC girl. girl=female. — Defender1031*Talk 22:16, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Marzipan Costume

Okay, does marzipan even have legs? How can she wear that costume? TheThin 21:35, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

No one said she was going to wear it. It's a parody of those "sexy" costumes they put out for women, which typically A) deviate significantly from the source, and 2) expose a lot of flesh. It's a costume of Marzipan, not for her. --DorianGray 21:38, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Oooohhhh... ok. TheThin 21:41, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Coach Z's more than 2 problems

Should this be added to the "More than 2 problems" list sence he..well, you know. 01:54, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

No. It's part of larger problems already listed there. — Defender1031*Talk 02:03, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Severed Head

I'd like to know any arguments against adding this cartoon to the list of apperances of Strong Sad's Severed Head. You see Strong Sad's head, talking to the announcer guy, so I'd assume it's a part of the running joke. But someone removed so, I'd just like to ask why.-- 15:02, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

A severed head is a head that was physically removed from the body. Digitally removing the body from a person for a commercial is not the same. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:12, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
