*Darn! I just spent an hour transcribing the toon to find someone'd already done it! Is there some procedure for calling dibs on it? Also, I know that I contributed both the cast of characters and the easter egg, yet I do not see my edit listed in the history. What gives? -- [[User:FireLily|FireLily]]

''Homestar takes about 15 minutes to go from his house to Bubs' Concession Stand; he woke up at 10, and then told Bubs that he had an 1 hour and 45 minutes left when he got to the concession stand.''

<br>
 
-
When Homestar exits his house, he ends up outside, "naked somehow" with [[Cinnamon]] on his face.  Therefore, in addition to traveling to Bubs' Concession Stand, he had to get dressed and remove the cinnamon in the fifteen minutes between 10 and 10:15, and it is impossible to tell how long it took him to get to Bubs'.

:By my calculations, it seems to be counting down the minutes until the end of '''June''' 25. And this makes sense (a little), knowing that June is the 6th month, and December is the 12th.

This one is about Marzi's hair in this one. Usually, chrstmas tree lights have to be plugged in, so, why, or should I say, WHERE, is the plug? Also, Question 2, IF they were plugged in, How could've she hid all the cords in her hair, because usualy, christmas lights comes in STRANDS..... so, even just to make a little bit of sence, the Xmas lights should've been in a diagonal pattern, or something!

1. You can get short strands that use the same lights and run off a couple C battaries from the Dollar store.
+
-
2. The cords of such cheapo dollar store lights are usually thin, and I'll assume she used hair gel to lock them in place? I dunno. [[User:Ben Again|Ben Again]] 09:37, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Is there anyway to get just the clock at the end without having to watch the cartoon? Or could someone make a version of the .swf that skips streight to the clock? I like to leave it open as a countdown 'till Christmas, but it's annoying when I have to close my browser for more speed for games, and then when I reopen it I need to hear this cartoon over again. Thanks for any help! [[User:Ben Again|Ben Again]] 09:34, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

I was just about to ask this question, only to find out I already did three years ago. [[User:Ben Again|Ben Again]] 01:25, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
+
-
:This isn't really the place to ask a question like that (it seems more appropriate for the forum), but I can think of two options. The clock is shown on a certain frame in the Flash file, and you will need something to skip to that frame. If you're using Firefox (or possibly Chrome, I'm not sure about the status of that), you can use [[User:Phlip/Greasemonkey|Phlip's Greasemonkey tool]] to add a frame counter and scrollbar to every 'toon on the site automatically. If not, you can download [http://www.globfx.com/downloads/swfplayer/ Swiff Player], then right-click on the link to the Flash file itself and save a copy on your computer, which you can use Swiff Player to open.
+
-
:Either way, you'll want to drag the scrollbar at the bottom of the window to frame 3201 to see the clock. If you don't scroll far enough you'll see part of the 'toon, and if you scroll too far you'll see the Easter Eggs. I hope that helps!

:Now, if you're asking if this should be a downloadable feature just like the Strong Bad clock, well... I agree. --{{User:Purple Wrench/sig}} 02:15, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
