Safety Dan

I think "Safety Dan" refers to that song, Safety Dance.

I don't. Please sign your posts, Mr. Annonymous! — talk Bubsty edits 02:48, 19 November 2005 (UTC)
If you're having trouble finding out who this annonymous edit was made by, then you could just look in the history :) Homestramy20|Talk 02:52, 19 November 2005 (UTC)
Good point. All the same, it really bugs me when people don't sign their posts. Unless they're annonymous. — talk Bubsty edits 02:54, 19 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh wait. You were annonymous. Ok, nevermind. I take back all I said. — talk Bubsty edits 02:55, 19 November 2005 (UTC)
Also, the edit was made quite the while ago... In August I believe? Homestramy20|Talk 02:57, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

double you zero zero tea

Hooray, my name is a running gag. -DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra

Even though that's nice, i don't think we need ot know your name or that a running gag uses it. Names are personal things, and i don't think u want the whole world to know your name. Sbmaniac
My school has 700 or so students and when I was a freshman, 17 people were named "Dan". Seven of those Dans lived in my dorm building (with about 120 people). Two of those Dans lived in my suite (of six people). It's a very popular name, nowadays.--Bobo the King 10:41, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

What about "unused emails?"

The sender of sbemail 65 was a Dan Chase from "Illinwah." Why isn't this on the page? -User:Eman

Doesn't count. The other emails are mentioned coz the name "Dan" was given special attention in them. --DorianGray

"To email, or not to email" that is the question mark

I think that we should list the emails which were written by dans also, given that "The name Dan appears on Homestar Runner several times," is not synonomous with "The Brothers Chaps have madde reference to the name Dan several times." In addition, the reason for the running "Dan" gag is BECAUSE of the sheer number of emails from Dans. (Please ignnore the fact that my name also happens to be Dan.)

No, sir. This is a running gag page. It shouldn't be part of a running gag page if TBC didn't put it in as a reference. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 21:32, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
It may not be part of the running gag, but I think it's moderately notable. If someone can find all the sbemails sent by Dans, *hint*Strong Bad Email By Sender*hint* I think we can integrate that into the page. -Brightstar Shiner 22:38, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
If it's not part of the running gag (which, being fan-submitted, it isn't), then it's not notable. — It's dot com 22:42, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Remember that we are in the business of documenting the work of TBC, not the fans. If TBC were to choose a string of emails which all were from Dan, and it was clear this was an intentional act on their part, then that would be notable here. But the simple featuring of an email here and again signed by someone calling himself Dan is not an instance of the running gag. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:55, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
I would agree if it weren't for the fact that the reason the gag is even in existance is the number of "Dan" emails, and I can see your side. I guess if you're all against me on this, I won't push the issue. I would suggest adding a link to Strong Bad Email By Name of Sender#D. DeFender1031 23:01, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
That might be an option. If we don't decide to put it there however, I won't be too disappointed. -Brightstar Shiner 01:45, 8 March 2007 (UTC)


There was a mention on here that Dan/Jerome in anything was part of the gag, which was deleted, but it made me wonder. The fact that the sender's name is Dan isn't a gag, but is deliberately not reading "Dan" worth a mention, since it's explicitly avoiding the gag? -- Mithent 22:13, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Dan as a Verb

It says that in the case of "Light them up, Dan", Dan is being used as a verb. But, I always assumed that this is telling Dan to light them up. Can someone explain to me how this is a verb? Philip8o 01:10, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Try reading it again, it's not saying "dan" is a verb, it's saying it's used in that formula often, with any verb taking the place of "light" in your example. — Defender1031*Talk 01:20, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes. I feel very dumb. I realized this just after posting. Philip8o 21:25, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
