:Well, the lack of a character's nose is't really mentioned as much.  Homestar's constantly picking things up, so his lack of arms/hands is only mentioned in certain situations.  By contrast, TBC don't have noseless characters talking about smells or bloody/runny noses often, so it's makes sense to mention them.--{{User:DongleGoblin/sig}} 20:01, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Amazing Feets of Wonder

I think an explanation about the phrase "Feet, don't fail me now" is relevant, but without some kinda origin (which I don't know..), it wouldn't be a very interesting fact. Thoughts? -DAGRON 13:26, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

"Feets, don't fail me now" was a catchphrase of Stepin Fetchit, wasn't it? Lord-z 14:58, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
This has beed discussed elsewhere, BTW. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:14, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Catagorization Toon Category Confusion!

Why does it say that the category is "shorts" on this page, but on the main page it says it's a "holiday toon"? Which is it in reality, or is it just linked to by the main page bubble? If so, I suggest listing it as a holiday toon.

Even though it's about Easter, I say this toon is a Short because it is under Shorts in the Random Toon XML Source. Homestar-Winner (talk) 18:43, 24 March 2008 (UTC)


B at the T of the K

I believe that stands for "ball at the top of the key," which means, if my basketball knowledge doesn't fail me (and it has, MANY times), College Reg has the ball behind the three point line directly opposite of the hoop. Maybe that's a semi-dig at Dick Vitale, as he says PTPer (stands for Prime Time Player.....er) a lot. I can't recall him using any other abbreviations as such, though.

Is any of that gobbledygook fit for a Real World Reference? GillanTheVillain 18:20, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

It wouldn't be a real-world reference so much as an explanation, but you can save it for other pages where it might be more appropriate. After all, "Reg has the ball at the top of the key" is kind of a running gag in H*R. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 18:33, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Oh, and as for Mr. Vitale, he's already mentioned on the page. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 18:35, 24 March 2008 (UTC)


Noses

Why is lack of visible noses mentioned? We don't mention lack of visible arms every time Homestar picks something up, why this? TheTeach!

Well, the lack of a character's nose is't really mentioned as much. Homestar's constantly picking things up, so his lack of arms/hands is only mentioned in certain situations. By contrast, TBC don't have noseless characters talking about smells or bloody/runny noses often, so it's makes sense to mention them.-- DongleGoblin 20:01, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Eggs within eggs

Does the repeated smashing-against-the-wall thing count as an Easter egg? And even if it doesn't, could we please clean up that fact about no Easter eggs in the toon? It could be confusing to someone who doesn't understand the terminology. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 03:27, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Does it really even matter that there are no Easter eggs? It's not a law that H*R toons have them, and shorter, "see you next week" type toons like this usually don't (Sbemail 150?!?, for example). --DorianGray 03:33, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Eggs didn't have any Easter eggs, either, and we didn't mention it there. That seems to be more an ironic footnote than encyclopedic content, if you ask me... -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 03:40, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not strongly in favor of it being there, but I figured I'd err on the side of caution given the fact that it was re-added after I removed it. I didn't want to get into an edit war, especially since the fact isn't necessarily WRONG, per se. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 03:43, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
