Name spelling

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. --Jay 09:54, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)

No good reason for its moving has been presented so I moved it back. Would be a pain to change all those links unnecessarily anyway. --Jay 15:45, 27 Mar 2005 (MST)

Uh-oh. My bad, I never knew it was spelled Renaldo somewhere... --señor

Insignia reference

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. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

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. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 17:04, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)
He must have meant NOPD (New Orleans Police Department). — It's dot com
Yep. I don't llike to type that long. (Yeah, I know I am lazy.) Rogue Leader / (my talk)

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.

Renaldo's "Insignia"

As Strong Bad would say, "Wrong wrong wrong." Renaldo is actually a member of the Masonic order of 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.
