Question: Why? I mean, are TBC doing work for macromedia now? Is this offical? -James

This is almost certainly official (or else someone can do absolutely perfect Strong Bad and Homestar impersinations). As for why, it may have been commissioned by Macromedia. Or the designers of the program asked TBC really nicely. Who knows? There's a thread on the message board about it here --TheNintenGenius 11:07, 30 Sep 2004 (MST)

Capitalization

Can we agree on whether the "Are" is capitalized or not now, already? It's been moved twice here, from Are to are and from are to Are. We need consensus! --TheNintenGenius 15:18, 2 Oct 2004 (MST)

I believe it's standard in American English to decapitalize forms of the word "(to) be" in titles. Of course, if we don't want to get in debates over this kind of stuff, we could use full title case: "Where The Crap Are We?". Problem solved. - [[User:furrykef|furrykef (Talk at me)]] 01:05, 25 Nov 2004 (MST)

Contested Fun Fact

  • Homestar mentions at the end of the toon that he thinks they're in Massachusetts. Also, in the Easter Egg, he appears to be talking to a "Senator Pencilface". Governor John Kerry is from Massachusetts, and he is sometimes mocked with the name "Pencil-face". Many contest this, saying that The Brothers Chaps wouldn't create a political cartoon, because it simply isn't their style. However, the inferences are just too obvious, and they are right there in the open.
I've decided to add 'Ivan's contested fun fact to the talk page here. I still think it's too shaky to be added, because while there's nothing saying it ISN'T a political reference, there's also nothing saying that it IS. And I've still never heard Kerry called "pencil face." --TheNintenGenius 15:18, 17 Oct 2004 (MST)
I agree, and I would have also removed it. -- Tom 16:59, 17 Oct 2004 (MST)

I thought that TBC were implying that Massetachussetts Hell. I thought that this meant that, like most Southerners, TBC don't like yankees. For those of you who are slow on the uptake, by "yankees", I mean people from the North, not the baseball team. 68.215.185.76 10:12, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

Methinks that most Southerners are quite over and done with any hard feelings about events that transpired 139 years ago and counting. And if they aren't...well...get over it. And if they want slavery back...get over it. Or get out. I'm a historian specializing in the Civil War, and I'm well aware that two Atlanta boys don't give a whit about Yankee vs Dixie feelings. Those in nowheresville, Georgia might. My point is, Southern cities are very much like Northern ones today. TBC are two very intelligent men and wouldn't stoop to whoremongering about petty crap like this. Homestar could just as easily have said Virginia. --Southpaw018 10:50, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

Shut up. There are other reasons that Southerners have for hating the North, which I choose not to state for risk of it being considered flaming. 68.215.185.76 11:51, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

I wouldn't consider it flaming. What else do southerners got against us? I'm curious. -Miss Free Country USA 3:35 Nov 30 2004

As if telling someone to shut up isn't rude enough as-is. --TheNintenGenius 12:27, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)
