::::I'm not seeing the connections everyone else seems to be; to me, Mari wouldn't use normal batteries as they're harmful to the environment when thrown away, and would logically use an alternative (a ridiculous alternative, of course). Eggs'd make a good organic battery I assume because of the calories; full of energy (Ever watch Rocky?).

::And we have a proven record of reversal when it's revealed that what we thought was not as it was. Anyway, the comparison of Matt being too busy with the baby to be able to do work on the site being referenced with Homestar boarded up in a closet for 3 weeks is a little more than bearable, I think. I don't know that Jackie would be terribly thrilled with that. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 04:17, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Apparently, "Matt had a baby" is the very first thing spoken in the commentary.  Does this mean we should move the fact back, or was he trying to be random? [[User:Bad Bad Guy|Bad Bad Guy]] 03:50, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

== Cutting her some flax ==

I learned this weekend that the phrase "cut me some slack" comes from the nautical realm, where you would ask this of a rope-cutter to allow you extra rope to account for errors you might make in tying knots and such. THought it was interesting, but likely not article-notable. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 18:09, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

:You never heard that before? wow. well, it's common enough a saying that i think to mention it would be explaining the joke. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 18:12, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

== Eggs not a fruit! ==
 
-
 
-
''One could make organic batteries [http://www.physlink.com/estore/cart/FruitPoweredClock.cfm out of fruit]. This refers to Homestar's declaration of "[[colonization|eggs not a fruit]]".''
 
-
 
-
I removed this as a stretch, but it got re-added without any reason as to *why*. This is a clear case of scraping for a reference where there isn't one via reinterpretation:
 
-
 
-
*Bubs calls eggs "organic batteries".
 
-
*"Organic batteries" can be made from fruit.
 
-
*Homestar once declared eggs "not a fruit".
 
-
 
-
But does that mean it's actually a reference? Probably not. It seems to just be Bubs being Bubs, and Marzipan being Marzipan. In my opinion, it seems far too veiled, and requires that pesky obscure little extra "step" to link to another incident. While TBC have done things like that before, the concept of them assuming everyone would know that organic batteries can be made of fruit, then linking eggs/fruit to a throwaway gag in an old SBEMail seems unlikely. Furthermore, apparently nobody here even *knew* about the "organic batteries made from fruit" until an IP added it. Ergo, it all adds up to a fantastic stretch. -{{User:YK/sig}} 18:21, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
 
-
:I'm not sure it's such a stretch, and your comment about an ip adding it is invalid. I knew that they could be made out of fruit, i just didn't see the extra step till after that, you'll notice i removed it then put it back in. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 18:26, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
 
-
::The fact that you need to reinterpret the fact for it to make sense is what makes the fact a stretch. The comment about the "IP adding it" was in regards to none of the regulars seeming to know/care about that bit. There is *no* info in the toon itself whatsoever to link one to the other. -{{User:YK/sig}} 18:29, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
 
-
:::True, not in the toon itself, but the [[Homestar Runner Universe]] is broader than just one toon, don't you think? {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 18:31, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
 
-
::::Well, if Marzipan said "I thought organic batteries were made from fruit..." or something, you'd be on to something. But as it stands, no such thing is said, and thus, that extra outside step is needed. That's a neat observation, but seems to be talk page material, not a concrete reference. -{{User:YK/sig}} 18:33, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

== Self-Esteem or Ego or What?==
 
-
 
-
Marzipan usually doesn't strike me as a character with low self-esteem or an ego, but it seems in this toon that she's either using affirmations to improve her self-esteem, or she just likes to hear that she's smart to satisfy her ego.  I thought about putting an entry about this in the article, but it just isn't worth it.. curious to know what other people think.  {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 22:29, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

"The boards are probably on the closet door because all closet doors can be opened from the inside, but not the outside."  This sentence is a little confusing to me, but I don't want to just pull it without at least trying to figure out what the author meant by it.  Can anyone clarify?--[[User:Big Dog|Big Dog]] 23:39, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

== The Cake Is a Lie ==
 
-
 
-
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_cake_is_a_lie#Story How's this for a reference?]  The popular Internet meme "the cake is a lie" comes from the game Portal...no spoilers here, but for those who have played, the use of cake to entrap Homestar does seem kinda similar...

:Given this toon came out several months before Portal... I doubt it's a reference. And even if this came out after Portal I wouldn't think it was a reference... tricking someone into doing something by promising them something, and then not delivering, is a time-honoured technique, and cake, being the supremum of foodstuffs, is an obvious choice. {{User:Phlip/sig}} 12:00, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

== Removing Hormones as harmful ==
 
-
 
-
In the line:
 
-
 
-
The "organic batteries" refers to organic food, which is supposed to lack toxic pesticides, or any harmful artificial ingredients such as hormones.
 
-
 
-
I believe "or any harmful artificial ingredients such as hormones" should be removed since it states that hormones used in food production are harmful, something the FDA has said is not true.
 
-
 
-
http://www.fda.gov/cvm/hormones.htm
 
-
 
-
Not only considering that, eggs do not contain hormones, nor do the chickens that lay eggs in the us.

It's a misleading statement, and should be edited out.
