Strong Bad's "mask"

While discussing the last costume Strong Bad says "my mask", even though he said before he doesn't wear a mask and that is his face.

Not the first time he's called it a mask. He's pretty inconsistent on the point. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 16:07, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
So what? A guy can't vary his words? I mean, where I come from, people use at least four different words for feet, two or three for hands, some words for head, practically every part has different names. Also, Strong Bad is aware of the fact that his face (though it is his face) is a mask, as well as he's aware of his hands being boxing gloves. They are still his hands and face, but since they -at the very least- RESEMBLE said items, why shouldn't he mention it once in a while? --Cass from Germany 17:48, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
I'd like to agree, and also point out the lace lift from looking old. Pointy King 17:59, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

He is the bee

Strong Bad also said he was the Bee in "sensitive to bees." So, should the remark really even "bee" there? *Clever! +1*

Anyhow, in the Carve-nival, Strong Bad is wearing a bee costume under his Homestar costume... --AwkwardFire 19:09, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


Should "Dorkelson" count as an instance of -erson? Seems pretty close to me... That Game Dude 386 19:12, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

And, I think the only reason it isn't Dorkerson is, well, because it doesn't quite roll off the tongue. That Game Dude 386

Easter Egg

The Peacey P "goof" should really be listed as an Easter egg, as it was clearly intended to be one. We have listed things as Easter eggs that could only be accessed through decompilers or search bars before. For example, "Nice try, Dodongo!" The goof is the non-working button, not the Peacey P sequence itself. Loafing 20:51, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 22:22, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
It should be under Goofs because it's a defunct easter egg that was intended be accessed by conventional means (as in, the link is present but non-functional). At the very least, it shouldn't be under Remarks, where it's currently housed. --MNGoldenEagle 01:27, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Identities of people in this toon

The list of editors featured in this toon is growing quite a lot. Most of them have added themselves without proof. We should use the same standard here that we use for sbemail emails: if it can't be proven, then it shouldn't be in the article. Considering that such a proof is not hard, we should be very strict on this.

Now, DorianGray is not only a sysop, but has also shown other users his photo before the toon came up. The other people that were listed were:

  • The person in the first Homestar picture is user Absorr
  • The boy in the Homsar costume is user ALJ123456.
  • The topless man in the Strong Bad papier-mâché mask is user Dom.
  • The heavy-set man in the Strong Bad facepaint is JunkyardWillieFan.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not calling anybody a liar. We simply don't know if these claims are justified or not. I'm sure blurry photographic evidence would help us here. Such as the featured photo in better resolution. Loafing 10:35, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Just to show what a sport I am (and to quell any naysayers from the outset), I'll show mine first anyway. =) As seen in the toon. Horrific detail shot 1, horrific detail shot 2. So there you go, maybe ladies. --DorianGray 10:47, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Whatcha got in the fridge? StarFox 00:08, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Okies, here's my proof too! [1] --Dom 11:12, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Convince'd! Congrats for being dissed by Strong Bad ;-) Loafing 12:13, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Heh, thanks! I thought being dissed by SB would be an honour, now I think it both an honour and getting off very lightly! --Dom 16:03, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

What kind of a Homestar mask is that anyway? StarFox 23:53, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
