I Think That The "Trade In That Skirt Your Wearing"And The Gorden Light Foot Part May be a refrence to the gorden highlanders,a high land regiment in the british army that wore kilts(Some people call kilts skirts).--[[User:99.224.229.97|99.224.229.97]] 20:52, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

:Nah, it's definitely likely the way it already is: a reference to a line in a song by Gordon Lightfoot. And the skirt line is just a way of mocking Strong Bad's manliness to try and get him to change sides. An "If you're not with us, you're a girly-girl!" kind of thing. --[[User:DorianGray|DorianGray]] 22:28, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

::Yeah, that'd be a stretch. Gordon Lightfoot is definitely the reference here. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 22:38, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree with [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=army&curid=813&diff=559910&oldid=559851&rcid=517375&hrwiki_mwiki6_session=7310525522fe343d21d0616efdd13164 this edit] (which got reverted). Anybody else got an opinion?{{User:Loafing/sig}} 23:29, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

:Agreed. There's no "s" sound in there, so it's "Oh, I see." {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 23:31, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

::Definitely "oh". "So" doesn't even really make sense in that context. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 23:34, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

:::I heard an "s" sound in it, and the subtitles say "so". That's why I reverted it. {{User:Hrjcm/sig}} 23:47, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

== Colonel ==

Not article-worthy, but Marina Orlova, the philology expert on YouTube, did a video which explains the difference in spelling and pronunciation of "colonel" - seems Homestar is using the original pronunciation!

== Little Albert ==

In the commentary, Matt mentions that one of the commando names they came up with (but never used) was "Little Albert".  Could this be a reference to [[Wikipedia:Little Albert experiment|this psychological experiment]]?  I mean, there isn't any similarity other than the name, but as far as I know it's a pretty famous experiment, one that anyone who's taken a Psychology class would have heard of, and that's what I thought of when I read it.  - [[User:Ingiald|Ingiald]] 16:11, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

== Possible Real-World Reference ==

It is not set in stone, but do you think it is possible that Homestar calling, The Cheat, a "Yellow Dog" may be a reference to the 1988 Chevy Chase film "Funny Farm"? In it his dog's name is "Yellow Dog".

:No. [https://www.google.com/search?q=%22yellow+dog%22 Google] brings up all sorts of stuff that isn't that, and not much that is. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 22:46, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

== Goodminton ==

Is it notable for the purposes of this wiki that, as of 2015 or so, there is, in fact, a [http://www.viahart.com/goodminton/ Goodminton]? It appears to be a proprietary racquet game where the shuttlecocks are designed to go at a consistent speed no matter how hard you hit them.
