These were on the STUFF page. If you wish to contest these, leave a note here, but don't allow it to be confused with any of the original votes.


Meh (Declined)

"meh" is one of Strong Sad's emotions, and it also is frequently said by The Cheat.

  • Decline. It's to obvious, It's like saying Homestar's speech impediment. Meh is also an emotion meaning normal, not happy, not sad, just...meh. - Stinkoman K

Strong Bad's Lament? (Accepted)

History Lesson Part II is written in the exact style of Strong Bad, as in that the entry says Johnny Appleseed was a hippie, and calls Strong Sad "dumpus". This may be becasue Strong Sad gave out his password earlier, so Strong Bad may have hacked Strong Sad's account and written his own entry.

  • Decline. If that was true, Strong Bad would more likely write "HJLWHOUISNASNKL?A STUPID!! GUY I AM A STUPID GUY!! HA HA HA!!!!GUIS kljIUS SJ". --Trogga 14:16, 4 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • That was one incident! You can't say that Strong Bad would write like that all the time. And you can't honestly say that sounds like Strong Sad. --VolatileChemical 20:39, 4 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Revise, Accept Too much speculation as written, but I must admit that it DOES look a bit more like SB's handiwork than SS's. --Jay 00:17, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Decline I'm not seeing Strong Bad listening to a live David Bowie track... Dasrik 02:36, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • And doubt Strong Bad could draw that good. --Trogga 11:42, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • We ARE talking about the same Strong Bad, right...?
  • You're using his art and musical tastes as an argument? Strong Bad's drawings of Trogdor during the theme is just as good as Saddy Dumpington, and Strong Sad would not call himself Dump*, let alone call anyone a hippie. And Strong Bad's character in no way reflects his music choices. --VolatileChemical 16:15, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • What makes you think the drawings at the end of dragon are Strong Bad's? --Trogga 17:43, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
      • What makes you think the Saddy Dumpington drawing is Strong Sad's? --Jay 17:54, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • My point is, TBC would never make a joke that subtle. For example, Pumpkin Carve-nival didn't end without proofing who really judged the pumpkins. This "fact" is almost silly as ye old Homestar prank call debate. --Trogga 17:35, 7 Apr 2005 (MDT)
      • So you're saying it DOES look like the kind of thing Strong Sad would write, what with all the typical Strong Bad comments? ("Dumpington", "freaking", "hippie", etc.) --Jay 18:35, 7 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Yes/Maybe, I highly doubt Strong Bad would praise Francis Scott Key. --Trogga 19:10, 7 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Oh, and thanks to whoever added "Strong Bad's Lament to this section. --VolatileChemical 16:16, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Vote change! Yup, I'm changing my vote. To a simple Accept. I didn't notice that his password really WAS given out on the page! I'm still pretty confident that the writing style and choice of words look more like SB than SS. --Jay 18:00, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Accept Lord Pikachon
  • Accept Like Jay said above, I also don't think Strong Sad would use the words "freaking" and "hippie". I also don't think he "rocks out", even orchestrally, but that's just my opinion. --acekirby13 19:23, 7 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Grim Reaper

  • Is it worth noting that the grim reaper appers both here on Strong Sad's lament as well as in Experimental Film (though in the latter, Strong Sad is in the GR costume)?
Nah, it just fits Strong Sad's personality. Always looking at the darker side of things.

Where was the box under strong sad's bed that had a slide show of strong bad and strong sad as kids??

Goofs vs. Typos

"Goofs" are mistakes TBC make; for the purposes of our discussion, Strong Sad made the mistakes on this page. We don't note mistakes Strong Bad makes in his emails as Goofs; rather, we note them in the Remarks. Since there were enough of Strong Sad's mistakes for a whole section, I changed it to "Typos". — It's dot com 22:07, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I'm not really the guy who would know the difference. I only made that change for two reasons:
  1. "Typos" isn't one of the ways we categorize Fun Facts. Goofs is.
  2. The Francis Scott Key fact is a Goof. I knew it wasn't a typo, so I changed the header to Goofs for lack of a better choice for that particular grouping.
That being said, the Key fact is probably the only one of the four that are currently under that header that really is a Goof. The typos by Strong Sad should probably be moved to another section. Maybe Remarks? -- Tom 22:35, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Goofs may be our standard category, but we are flexible enough to accomodate a special category on a toon-by-toon basis. For example, Homestar's attempts at Deleted. I think these should be grouped together since there are several of them. How about "Strong Sad's Goofs", or "Strong Sad's Mistakes", or something similar? — It's dot com 22:42, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)


Has anyone investigated to see if this is a screename maintained by TBC? Just curious. --Alcnolien
