I guess living in Hawaii means I'm the only one awake. :-P Anyway, I don't really know the procedures and protocols for the transcripting and the placenaming and characterlisting, so I'll stay out of that. And I don't have a forum account, so I won't post a thread there, I guess. But I started this off. Grumblebaker 03:28, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

That's good to know. But it doesn't need to go here, sorry. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 03:34, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Rapid blinking

Right after Homestar says Strong Bad "has to be quicker next time" he begins blinking at a very excessive rate. What do you think? a goof? a remark? What say you? --Domestibot

You're right. Has anyone else noticed this? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:11, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. I think it should go in "remarks". Flicky1991 21:50, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Carti-what Bode-what

well, trying to figure out the devil the couplets are called, and wondering: bodélé depression is a place in the sahara desert (depression?) and cartier is a what? (although there is a alain chartier who was a french poet) thoughts or alternatives? --Neumannz 06:28, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

The name Bodélé doesn't seem to exist outside of that obscure Sahara Desert reference. By contrast, Bodelet, like Cartier, is a common French surname, and is a more likely spelling. -Lydia
I was thinking perhaps it was Homestar's pronunciation of Baudelaire? Perhaps a portmanteau with a Cartier Somebody whom I don't know about? (On a related note, "beige malaise" yields a surprising number of hits predating this toon.) —AbdiViklas 13:50, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Potato who?

What does one-potato-two-potato mean? I mean, does it mean something or did they just make it up? --Cass from Germany 09:59, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

It's a kind of counting-out game. --DorianGray 10:02, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Coincidence?

I think that the Sideways Stories From Wayside School reference is just a coincidence. I don't think they were referencing that at the time, I think it was just something odd homestar did.

You're right. I can't see any link between this toon and that (obscure?) childrens' book. Strong Bad did not lose because of his poor kicking ability. Strong Bad lost because Strong Sad caught the ball. There is no connection, apart from the fact that kickball features in both media. Stretch.The Chort 12:44, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
There is a slight connection in that Ron's team consisted of only himself and Louis, versus a much larger team, but I agree that it's a stretch anyways. --DorianGray 13:41, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

weclome back

The music in this toon sounds like the music from Weclome Back. --FangoriouslyFotoshopStar.png 14:31, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

It's noted in the trivia section already. — Defender1031*Talk 16:15, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Title

Why does the title card say "Kick-a Ball!" if the Toons menu says "Kick-A-Ball"? -132.183.151.140 17:32, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Bubs

Does Bubs look a little different to anyone else? I think it's something with his eyes.--Thy Not Dennis (t/c) 18:44, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

You can also see the bottom line of a mouth at one point. - Guy in a Box 20:58, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Sonic?

During the coin toss, Homestar sounds like he's saying "Sides" instead of "Sonic". Anyone think that?

That "Sonic" is much more funny. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 16:37, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I honestly can hear it eaither way. If i'm listening for "Sonic" I hear "Sonic". If i listen for "sides" i head "sides". If i'm not listening for anything specific i hear "sah". I say we give TBC the benefit of the doubt and go with the funnier one, which is clearly "sonic". — Defender1031*Talk 16:48, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Strong Mad's first crap

  • This marks the first time Strong Mad has ever said crap.

I've removed this fact several times for not being notable, and it keeps getting put back, so rather than revert warring, i'm bringing it here. I don't think it's notable to mention the first time people say words, whether it's a running gag word or not. — Defender1031*Talk 17:11, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for pointing this out, but that is the funniest header I've ever read. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 17:14, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
That was the point. Now how about an opinion? — Defender1031*Talk 17:15, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I knew Strong Mad's mental capacity was around that of a kindergartener, but I didn't realize he was just now being potty trained. But in seriousness, I agree with Defender. Also, thank you for using talk in this situation. -132.183.151.140 17:18, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Haven't we had similar discussions of this before? I think it was on 3 Times Halloween Funjob, wherein Marzipan said "crap". See also Talk:3 Times Halloween Funjob#Unnotable. --DorianGray 20:40, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Commish again

Is it worth noting that SB's rule change signature of "The Commish" is probably a reference to the TV show of the same name? It's been referenced before as one of the tapes in the VCR on the Character Videos page. 71.254.118.93 02:28, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
