::If, however, we assume that it was New Paper that dies in hremail3184, then things get a lot more straightforward. The Paper dies (again) in email thunder and then New Paper dies in the following email. Thus, I'd say the most simple explanation is most likely ([[Wikipedia:Occam's razor|Occam's razor]]) and that it was New Paper that died in hremail3184. I know some of you may dismiss this as speculation but we need to come to some form of general consensus as to what happened at the end of this email. {{User:The Chort/sig}} 15:04, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

:::The humor in that gag IS that very ambiguity. The point is that you don't know which one it is, and that it could have been and was most likely both. To speculate about it is to defeat the joke. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 15:19, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

::::Isn't that very ambiguity exactly the reason why we need discuss the events at the end of this email in the first place? I don't see why we shouldn't discuss what happened in case we defeat the joke. There are certain articles on this wiki (e.g. [[Envelope Paper]], [[Virtual Paper]]) where it is necessary to state which paper died in this email, which is why I feel this is a big issue. I stick with my argument; although we don't know which paper died here, we can work it out using a process of elimination. There have been two papers which have died. If The Paper clearly died in email thunder, then New Paper must have died in the following email (and if they both died, that still means that New Paper died in this email). {{User:The Chort/sig}} 18:32, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

:::::No, that very ambiguity is the reason that any such discussion is speculation, and UNNEEDED speculation at that. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 19:45, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

::::::I would argue that it's not speculation, but inference.  (and REASONABLE inference at that). -[[Special:Contributions/132.183.151.119|132.183.151.119]] 20:06, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

::have those five words in their titles and have nothing to do with rap songs and don't mention being here for years, but I still think they're referencing the song while talking about comebacks in other fields (finance, automobiles, cartoon emails, etc.) -- [[User:Tom|Tom]] 23:52, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

:::What also helps sell it as a reference is the rhythm of the words ("Don't ''call'' it a ''come''back") is same in both how Homestar says it and in the song. {{User:Wbwolf/sig}} 15:27, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

::::that doesn't mean anything. that's just how "don't call it a comeback" would normally be emphasized if you're trying to say it fast. If you're not trying to say it fast, there would also be an emphasis on "don't", but all the others would be the same. {{User:The Knights Who Say Ni/sig}} 22:53, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

== Greasemonkey ==

I'm not sure if this is the right place to mention it, but I thought I should...mention it.  The arrows that appear in the bottom corners of the screen when you view sbemails with [[User:Phlip/Greasemonkey|Phlip's Greasemonkey script]] seem to omit hremail3184, instead leading to "sbemail201.html", a 404'd page.  It's not a big problem, but probably worth fixing.  I'd fix it if I could (or had any idea how to).

:The latest version of the script already handles this. If you have update-checking turned on in the preferences, it should automatically tell you that there's an update... if it's turned off (or not working for some reason) then try {{p|l={{FULLURL:User:Phlip/Greasemonkey|action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&fakeextension=.user.js}} reinstalling it}}. {{User:Phlip/sig}} 01:08, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

How does it come that the button [[Strong Bad]] presses says "Dooj", and where did [[The Brothers Chaps]] get the word "Dooj" from? --[[Special:Contributions/83.188.255.201|83.188.255.201]] 09:53, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

:From the [[Onomatopoeia]] page, it originates from [[Strong Bad is a Bad Guy]]. There is a Fun Fact for it in the Inside References section. {{User:Elcool/sig}} 15:17, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Should the goofs say that, when we see the back of the closed lappy, it is NOT plugged into the Internet, but Strong Bad can still check his email? I'm pretty sure the Lappy doesn't have wireless capability...

== I'd like a trip to the Oosa ==

-
I'm not sure on the possibility of it, but do you think USA as Oosa is a reference to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fonejacker Fonejacker] character Mr. Dooved who always pronounces acronyms and abbreviation as they are spelled? In one episode he said that he wanted to fly to the '''Oosa''' talking about the USA. [[User:Geonightman|Geonightman]] 02:58, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

:I doubt it. It's a pretty common [[snopes:business/genius/usa.asp|concept]]/joke. In fact, I saw something similar just four days ago on 30 Rock. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 03:07, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

== Callback to April Fool 09? ==
 
-
 
-
Having just watched [[April Fool 09]] for the first time in a while, the use of "cleary" as a misspelled "clearly" in that toon made me wonder if Cardgage's "Beverly Clearly" here could be a subtle callback to that toon. '''''[[user:Kyojikasshu|kyojikasshu]]''''' 06:57, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

If you have Greasemonkey(or a Flash decompiler) and pause right before the Tandy 400 explodes, you can click the contrast buttons. --[[Special:Contributions/83.240.82.223|83.240.82.223]] 18:36, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Here's a link http://snltranscripts.jt.org/05/lostfound80s6.phtml go ahead and hit ctrl-f "the nude" and see how unusual and distinctive this line was, and how it is almost certainly a quote being referenced.

-
:It is irrelevant whether this phrase originated there. According to a simple Google search it is now in common use. There is no allusion to SNL in the hremail, so there is absolutely no reason to assume that this is a direct reference. Please refrain from putting this back in as a fact.{{User:Loafing/sig}} 02:36, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

== Doom Ref ==

-
Given their love for Doom and multiple references to it, do you think the POV shot of Bubs using a Double Barrel Shotgun shooting the Compy is a reference to the POV of using the Super Shotgun in Doom II? --[[User:Geonightman|Geonightman]] 21:07, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
