Was it necessary to change this to "Reynaldo"? It was written out without the "Y" in [[dangeresque 3]], and in the karaoke for The Dangeresque Theme, Coach Z ponders, "Is that how you spell Reynaldo?" I think the sans-Y spelling may be correct. --[[User:Jay|Jay]] 09:54, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)

I think that we should get rid of the Islam sign part and just put in that the Moon and star is referencing the LOPD.  {{User:Rogue Leader/sig}}

:What is LOPD? I looked up Islamic symbols on Wikipedia, and they have the crescent as a symbol but not the star. The crescent with the star is the symbol of the Ottoman Empire (as this page already notes) and is currently on the flag of Turkey. {{User:Homestar Coder/sig}} 17:04, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Not many people know this, but Dangeresque is acually based on an attraction in Disney World. It is called "Sounds dangerous starring Drew Carrey" it is about a celebrity undercover cop who has to find a person named "Renoldi". Renoldi would be where "Renaldo" comes from.

The symbol and fez more closely resemble the Alhambra Shine.

As Strong Bad would say, "Wrong wrong wrong."  Renaldo is actually a member of the [[Wikipedia:Freemasonry|Masonic]] order of [[Wikipedia:Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine|Shriners]]. While the symbols of the Shriners originated in the Middle East, notably from an Islamic context, the fez, turban, and star and crescent are not supposed to signify any Middle Eastern ancestry for Renaldo.  I will edit the page show this connection and eliminate the conjecture about Morocco and Islam.

:Whoa, not so fast there, Slick. Conjecture is as conjecture does, and saying Renaldo's dress is Shriner rather than Middle Eastern is plenty conjectural when the Shriners explicitly (and somewhat cheekily) adopted those elements from Middle Eastern culture. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think I've ever seen a Shriner wear a turban. Unless you can point out something about Renaldo that is ''specifically'' Shriner, there's no reason to think he belongs to or intentionally dresses like the Order. For my money, the ridiculous juxtaposition of a turban ''and'' a fez indicates he's trying to look Middle Eastern and botching it. --[[User:TheNicestGuy|TheNicestGuy]] 22:31, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

::Or trying to look like a Shriner and botching it (having assumed that Shriners ''must'' wear turbans since they have "Arabic" in their long name, the idea that all Arab men wear turbans being a common stereotype). The unusual orientation of the star and crescent are associated with the Shriners and AFAICT with nobody else. And if we want to explain his fez, his star and crescent, his turban and his name all at once, we can always say he's a Spanish Moor who also happens to be a Shriner or wannabe Shriner.
