[edit] Next season on

Okay, I really can't decide on this one: Is the scene where Homestar says "Next season on", followed by an outrageous clip that definitely is not going to be in the next episode, an Arrested Development reference or not? It certainly seems like one, but I'm torn simply because Homestar doesn't say the exact thing that the narrator says. Plus, I doubt I would have ever linked the two had Homestar not been dressed as Tobias. Thoughts? Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:16, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

It seems like it follows the narrative structure of Arrested Development, in that those clips were usually a reversal of or play on some absurd situation that occurred in the main episode. I vote yes.
Eh, I don't know. The style is different, the wording is different (AD always said "On the next Arrested Development")... I think it's a stretch. — It's dot com 22:37, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Easter Egg Order

The introduction of YouTube versions of the Homestar Runner toons may be cause to revisit an issue discussed at length some years ago. The issue was whether the pages on the Wiki should standardize the ordering of Easter Eggs. The thinking back then was that Easter Eggs should be presented in the order that they appear in the Flash file frames. Now that the YouTube videos include the Easter Eggs, and the Brothers Chaps are choosing the order of presentation for those videos, might it be a good idea going forward to have the Easter Eggs on the wiki pages match the order in which the Easter Eggs appear on the YouTube videos? Just putting that out there for consideration. — 22:16, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

You mean they're not one and the same? That's weird. Wouldn't it have been way easier to just make them the order they want them to be in on the video and then add the interactive elements for the website version? Octan 22:54, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
The YouTube video is in the same order as the Flash file. And yes, the Easter eggs should be listed in that order. I went ahead and fixed it for this toon (I just had to swap Bubs and Coach Z). — It's dot com 00:21, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Considering Octan's comment above, I suppose I should clarify and say that, if there is ever a discrepancy between the order of the Flash file and the order in the YouTube video, that the best practice would be to go by the order in the YouTube video, since the Flash file order is essentially hidden from view and allows for random access, whereas the order in the YouTube video is curated and for that reason can be considered canonical. As older toons are ported to YouTube, this may come up from time to time. — 01:20, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Bargle nawdle zouss

Is it safe to assume Homestar spitting marbles out of his mouth and suddenly becoming articulate is a reference to Weird Al's "Smells Like Nirvana"? Where he uses a mouthful of marbles as his excuse for being hard to understand. Octan 22:54, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

On one hand, that is exactly what I was thinking when I saw that. On the other, it's not clear that it was a deliberate reference. --Jay (Talk) 23:33, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] What's phlugus?

I tried looking it up but all I got was people's usernames on other websites (and this page oddly enough). Wikipedia has got nothing. Guybrush20X6 12:26, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

I speculate that it's a Portmanteau between "phlegm" and "loogies". 15:28, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Or Fungus, given what's ACTUALLY supposed to be in that stuff. How would we confirm though? Guybrush20X6 15:45, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

So this implies that she pronounced it "FLOO-gəs", but all I hear is "LOO-gəs". Maybe "BLOO-gəs" if I strain hard enough. Now, if it's a Portmanteau of "loogies" and "fungus", that makes more sense. Except, of course, that "loogies" is plural and "fungus" is singular, when there is clearly a plurality of it in the jar. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 18:01, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
I just changed the transcription to "loogis." That seemed the best solution, though I was torn between this and "loogus". 19:44, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
I took it to be a combination of plegm and mucus - 20:26, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
So how do we find out? Email TBC or wait until it comes out on DVD? Guybrush20X6 21:22, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

[edit] KoT's Mannerisms

I see the costume and the Ram Man description, but I don't recognise the speech pattern or phraseology. Anyone care to enlighten me?

--JayWTBF 17:03, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm actually way confused about that myself. -Abelhawk 01:19, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Seems a lot like Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time.. --Kaze 18:37, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Klobasneks vs kolaches

I just learned that kolaches are Czech pastries with fruit in them, whereas klobasneks are the sausages wrapped in dough (often mistaken for kolaches). Think this is big enough of a deal to put in the Remarks section or anything? -Abelhawk 01:21, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Kolache is a common southern term for the pigs-in-a-blanket style thing. --Kaze 18:39, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Murder or Mortal?

I know it would make more sense if he said 'Murder' but when I hear him say it, it kinda sounds more like 'Mortal'. His 3-year-old L=W voice disorder might be why. The one exception is when he spits out those marbles, which is an unmistakable 'Mordor'.

Come to think of it, maybe this means Homestar is immortal and is referencing The Lord of the Rings. Not-So-Evil Gif 05:16, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Homestar doesn't have any L-to-W disorder; it's only R he has trouble with. --Jay (Talk) 09:08, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
In this very cartoon he says "The land of Muw-duw? Whewe the shadows lie?" And how can you forget the immortal "Hypow-Text Mawkup Lotion" from Flash is Dead!? -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 14:41, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
