[edit] FAT space

I dont think that Strong Bad is refering to a File Allocation Table when he is degrading his portly brother. Thoughts? --Drhaggis 10:51, 15 Sep 2004 (MST)

It seems unlikely. --InterruptorJones 11:00, 15 Sep 2004 (MST)
Agreed. I have removed this fun fact. --Tom 12:43, 15 Sep 2004 (MST)

[edit] Dubious fun fact

The Easter Egg with Ron Dardman is referencing Strong Bad Email "Credit Card" where Strong Bad prank-emails Homestar for his Credit Card Number.

How so? I don't see the correlation. I've removed this Fun Fact for the present. --Upsilon 07:00, 23 Nov 2004

[edit] .2?

Why are all of the answering machines .2 now? There's no page for just 9/10/11, only 9.2/10.2/11.2 --nintendorulez 14:54, 12 Mar 2005 (MST)

Uh, those are the names The Brothers Chaps gave the toons. Beats me. Maybe they named them that because of the new PhoneTime XL8 answering machine? We just name the articles after the toons. -- Tom 11:51, 13 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] I sleep in a bed shaped like a racecar...

The mention of a racecar bed reminds me of the Simpsons epsiode A Milhouse Divided in which Milhouse's dad gets separated from his wife and brags to Homer:

Kirk: (describing single life at his new apartment) And another great thing: you get your own bed! I sleep in a racing car. Do you?

Homer: I sleep in a big bed with my wife.

Kirk: (dejected) Oh, yeah.

Just thought it was worth pointing out, now that a racecar bed has been mentioned in two toons (the other one is secret identity). I'm not sure if it's strong enough to be a reference, even though I've never heard of a racecar bed outside of this Simpsons epsiode. Trey56 22:41, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

I don't think so... My cousin has a racecar bed. It's just a little-kid fantasy, I think. --DorianGray
He does? Lucky. Trey56 23:47, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Here's a Google Image Search for racecar bed. --DorianGray
There are so many options! I'm going to have to go with #8. Trey56 04:53, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Actually, this one's pretty awesome too... Trey56 04:55, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
The second one from the left is the one my cousin has. Same sheets too. Which is interesting. --DorianGray
Are you talking about the one with the boy with the 50-year-old head? Trey56 05:02, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
Wow, I did not notice that. Assuredly, my cousin doesn't look like that. --DorianGray

[edit] Posting to confirm a deleted Fun Fact

  • When Ron Dardman calls about the charge on Marzipan's credit card, he says, " lieu of an actual signature, someone drew some kind of a little underbite man with a beanie cap on..." He's probably describing Homestar, who allegedly bought the Race Car bed.

This fact was featured on the article from 2004-2007. I believe it is unneccesary, but we probably need others' opinions before we can decide if it should be gone forever. Bad Bad Guy 00:47, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

It is explaining the joke, definitely make it dead. — Defender1031*Talk 00:49, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] VI Warshawski

Is there a reason Strong Sad pronounces this "V.I. Warshowski"? i almost changed it until i saw it was a real-world reference. is it supposed to be pronounced this way, or with "shaw" in the middle? The Knights Who Say Ni 18:03, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Sad's Message

Does anybody else find his last line more than a little... suggestive? Sidnoea 19:14, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] The Keys, THE KEYS!

Is there a reason as to why Marzipan left her keys on the table when Strong Sad was calling and then picked them back up when he called again? I would go on the forum for this (or even discord) but I wanted to strike up the conversation here (and then have it continued on discord.) ----J∃ffJMan (potatogilz Jr./the stupid on Club technochocolate) 14:10, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

My interpretation is that it's simply there to show that Marzipan heard both messages, but didn't care enough to pick up the phone and respond. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:42, 2 February 2022 (UTC)
It's because when she was checking her messages, she heard the first message and got prepared to leave, but then he called back on the last message, so she put her keys away. The Knights Who Say Ni 22:43, 2 February 2022 (UTC)
I got the impression she came home, leaving her keys on the table, and then decided to leave again, so she took her keys as she left. You can hear the door shut again after her.- 04:29, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
I thought it was that she was gonna go to his house to watch the movie, but didn't because he didn't actually have the movie. But how would she go anywhere WITHOUT HER KEYS?!?!? So, that's why MY theory is incorrect. I agree with Gfd, and Knights, and IP. All more valid theories than my own. ----J∃ffJMan (the guy who started up this conversation in the first place) 12:40, 3 February 2022 (UTC)
