Could we get an Explanation on this? Is "220 in 4:45" even remotely impressive? {{unsigned|24.6.5.112|20:40, 4 November 2015}}

The whole "immersive horror experience room" is at least a reference to [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_to_Escape Race to Escape] (complete with ridiculous leaps in logic). {{unsigned|74.212.42.241|20:31, 5 November 2015}}

== The New Face of Terror ==
 
-
 
-
Is it me, or is Large Bean a dead-on parody of [[Wikipedia:Slender Man|Slenderm'n]]? The design is similar, they are both "unsettling" rather than graphic, and they both have become popular enough to warrant plush toys (which are even closer in design).
 
-
<br>And if you want to get ''really'' nit-picky, the scene keeps jump-cutting between the room itself and Strong Bad watching on a live feed, where there is a small amount of ''static''.
 
-
<br>Yeah, that last one was a stretch... [[Peasant's Quest Movie Trailer|But still.]] And I'm aware that this is now a controversial topic, but if the toon is referencing it then it should be added.  --{{User:Purple Wrench/sig}} 17:13, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

== Just a Gigolo ==

-
*When Strong Bad says "Why if I had a haunted house, I think it would turn out a little something..." could be a reference to David Lee Roth's "Just a Gigolo" song and music video.
 
-
Could someone please explain which specific part of the music video this line "could" reference, since I haven't seen it myself? {{User:Bad Bad Guy/sig}} 18:33, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

:If noone knows the connection, and thus whether or not it seems that strong, does this entry still seem worth keeping on the toon's page? {{User:Bad Bad Guy/sig}} 14:12, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

== I Wanna Speak To Cookie Puss, Man! ==

Could the KoT's Cookie Puss line be a reference to an early Beastie Boys number by the same name? I only ask because the Beasties are referenced multiple times throughout the site. {{unsigned|YoghNess|19:42, 17 November 2015}}

:[[Wikipedia:Cookie Puss|nope]]. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 20:18, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

::I know Cookie Puss is a real mascot, but this wouldn't be the first sneaky reference. [http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Popular_Music_References#Beastie_Boys] [http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/File:BubsMCA.png]  [http://i.imgur.com/qoHbraU.png] {{User:YoghNess/sig}}

:::I don't know why you call those references "sneaky", but there's absolutely NOTHING here to suggest KoT is referring to anything other than the mascot. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 16:01, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

== Beetlejuice Cartoon, maybe? ==
 
-
 
-
I'm curious if Homestar's song might be a reference to an old episode of the Beetlejuice animated series which took place on a tropical island and ended with the same "Da-bo-dee-bo-da!" scat song. {{unsigned|184.59.149.197|19:08, 25 November 2015}}

:Given that he's already mentioned Beetlejuice, it's likely, but we'll need a direct reference to a specific episode rather than a vague description of one. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 12:29, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

::Season 1 Episode 18, Quit while you're a head. I just looked up the episode on dailymotion. Skip to about the 22:00 mark. {{unsigned|184.59.149.197|21:17, 6 December 2015}}

:::That certainly seems like a direct reference. {{User:Mee/sig}} 12:44, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

== Strong Sad's nitpicking? ==
 
-
I've noticed a trend of Strong Sad correcting people (Pseudonym, anyone?) - should this be noted as a running gag or just a facet of his personality on his own article? Perhaps it could be paired with those times he's grammatically wrong, as that seems to be part of the joke- a pretentious know-it-all who frequently makes his own mistakes. [[Special:Contributions/50.206.151.149|50.206.151.149]] 16:50, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
 
-
:Interesting idea. Can you give other examples besides this toon and [[secret identity]]? Or examples of when he's grammatically wrong? (I can't think of many of those.) I'm not sure if it would qualify as a page-able running gag, but maybe we ''should'' note it on [[Strong Sad|his page]]. {{User:SRMX12/sig}} 18:25, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

::Strong Sad is the Strong Bad Email police. Strong Sad [[technology|complained that both 5" and 3 1/2" disks are both floppies]] and [[narrator|that Strong Bad's octopus-toss was a change-up, not a curveball]]. That's three Strong Bad Emails in a row. Not to mention that you get an achievement in [[Homestar Ruiner]] for getting Strong Sad to show up an nitpick about lemmings and such. [[Special:Contributions/99.48.86.26|99.48.86.26]] 00:36, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

::: [[fan club]] also shows some grammatical errors- his pronunciation of Twizzlers and his shortening of "fan fiction". I don't know how we would connect the nitpicking and the errors, but the two gags do seem to go hand in hand. [[Special:Contributions/50.206.151.149|50.206.151.149]] 16:38, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
 
-
::::Okay, I get the Strong Sad Correcting People thing. Still not sold on the grammatical errors. The "Twizzlers" thing isn't a grammar error so much as a weird pronunciation befitting of a Homestar Runner cartoon... "fanfic" ''could'' be considered an error, but it's a common abbreviation that Strong Bad just doesn't like. Not sure if it counts. {{User:SRMX12/sig}} 16:55, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

==Error, New Design Change, or Part of Costume?==
 
-
I'm just now noticing The Knight's visor slats are blue instead of the standard yellow, along with shading added to them. Since this is his as-of-date most recent appearance, and the design choice doesn't really seem to relate to the costume in any way, should this be considered an error for him, or part of a design evolution? --[[User:ZootyCutie|ZootyCutie]] 23:57, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
