:::I agree; it's not a reference to a specific French word (the closest would be "dois" or "doit," which are other forms of "devoir"), but rather something to give it a French sound (and, as such, not notable).[[User:Pensivepoet.babblingbard|Pensivepoet.babblingbard]] 20:16, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Another old conversation I'm bringing up, but I think it needs addressing.  (Note that I did just make a post about Strong Sad and French in yes, wrestling's talk.  I don't think this necessarily applies, especially since Marzipan is german in origin, I think...)  ''However'', I ''do'' think that Homestar's speech ''is'' a reference to a specific French word.  (that's a lot of italics..) Anyway, hear me out.  It seems to me that the "joke" is supposed to be that "Dew" sounds like the french word for 2 (Deux?  I dunno, I don't speak french).  Somehow homestar screws up the joke (Yeah, it's hard to screw up the pronunciation of a joke dependent on pronunciation, but it's homestar) and confuses it with the french word for 3 (trois?) and ends up with some odd pormanteau of the two...  It's complicated I know, but it seems to make sense.  Thoughts?

: The reason why your edit was reverted was the reference needs to be a specific character, running gag, or incident (such as in [[highschool]], there was the "doodle memory" Easter Egg of events in [[caper]]).  The inaccuracies of Strong Bad's memory, while well documented, are more of a general character trait.  To use another example, the behavior of Homsar's hat would not be an inside reference, because that's part of the character, not a reference to something specific. {{User:Wbwolf/sig}} 15:26, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

If you could explain what the " WHAAAAT??!!?&,:;%${}" is suppose to be reference to, then we can judge whether it should be kept.  Right now, it seems like an obscure or personal joke, which has no place in a Wiki page, much less in a transcript.  The transcript should be an accurate record what is said during the toon.  Adding the extra punctuation might be the norm in a written comic strip, but it is not a grammatical reflection of Strong Sad's line.  (As I noted in my original reversion, Strong Sad's line does have have braces.) {{User:Wbwolf/sig}} 15:19, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

::Wbwolf is right; transcripts are supposed to provide an accurate description of the toon. This inside joke does not add anything to the transcript, does not accurately reflect Strong Sad's line, and will confuse anyone who does not know what it is referencing. {{User:Has Matt?/sig}} 15:29, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

==Who sent the email?==

I believe that when I emailed Strong Bad about the DNA Evidence popping all over the place in the Strong Bad Emails he answered it with an entire toon. Or maybe they just wanted to clear it up. [[User:Baseballfreak530|Baseballfreak530]] 16:39, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

:There were probably a lot of people who sent emails like that, as they'd been running that joke for 5 emails by then. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 16:42, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

:::I disagree.  I think it was Baseballfreak530's email that got the toon made.  We should put a trivia item in the article about this.  {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 05:49, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

It seems to me that Homestar's line: "Previously on Homestarrunner.com" is similar to the beginning of multipart Stargate SG1 episodes. Should this be added?

*Stargate is by far the only show that uses the "Previously on..." line. Just about every show does that for multi-part episodes. {{User:Exhibit A/sig}} 02:48, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

== Dwah-Dwah or Dry-Dwah? ==
+
-

I swear I hear Homestar say Dwai Dwah (Dry Dwah).  It would make sense that Homestar would spit out the normally sweet Mountain Dew if it has no sugar taste to it.  Though I do get the joke of Dwah Dwah.  I do still hear it as Dry Dwah though (obviously with his lack of Rs). - walker

The email "underlings" came ''before'' DNA Evidence, but ''after'' rough copy. The email "underlings" didn't mention DNA evidence. Why would they skip an email? --Homestar tiger (HRFWiki)
