SB's head

Strong Bad's head is a lightbulb! A trapezoidal lightbulb! --Homfrog 11:41, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, at least we know what his heads shape is.--Eddy king 15:55, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

(1) This may reveal the shape of his skull, sure, but that's hardly a surprise. (2) It is a cartoon, and cartoon physics may apply here - which is to say it may not recur or might even be freely contradicted down the road. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:26, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Did ya read-?

Is it "Did ya read- Dear Strong Bad," or "Dijjery Dear Strong Bad,"? I hear "Dijjery". --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 11:56, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm not certain... my first guess was the first half of "didjeridu" but I thought that would just be silly... --phlip TC 12:02, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Or the first half of that one rejected character. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 12:04, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I dunno, but I interpreted it as "did you read." —BazookaJoe 13:33, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I thought of the didgeridoo as well when I saw it. Trey56 16:00, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Wave Effect

I noticed that during the Cheat's "Youth Through Editing" remix of the intro, clicking on the Lappy's screen will still cause the usual distortion effect. The Spainish Inquisition 15:25, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, and it suffered the same results as in Sick Day. --Addict 2006 16:19, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I just thought it would be worth mentioning, considering the wierd camera angles in the sequence. The Spainish Inquisition 16:23, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Marzipans line

There is no doubt in my mind that that line thats in the transcript is incorrect. We're is a possible word, but Ditty sound nothing like the mystery confusing word. For a start, the word seems to start with a B. For all we know, she could be speaking in a forign language. (Make sense with the kosher tea)Its at times like this that I wish TBC had a way of answering our questions. --Gerkuman 15:38, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

That was my last guess. I don't even know what the line is. --Addict 2006 16:07, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
It sounded to me like "Word, booty." But, uh, that's just me. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 16:11, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I only thought it up when doing all the subtitles for this. So I will change it accordingly if it does get changed here and a consensus is reached or something. --Addict 2006 16:20, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I definitely hear "word booty" but I haven't a clue what that means. Then again, I'm older than Strong Bad. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:35, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I hear "{something} duty", which makes a bit of sense in context. Would help if I could make out the "Something." --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 17:45, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
At first I thought she was saying something along the lines of "Word, dudey". But after listening again, I agree it's "{something} duty"; that would make more sense than my inital thought. It almost sounds like "We're duty", but I have no clue what that means. ~Garnet Jell-o~ 18:37, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Estimated ages?

Strong Bad says "Oh, yeah. I feel at least 10 years younger! Time to go relate with some 18-24 year olds!" This brings up two ideas. He goes to see Strong Sad, so that leads me to believe that Strong Sad is 18-24. Also, if Strong Bad wants to relate to people around 10 years younger than his real age, that could mean he's 28-34 years old.

The thing is, your theory i'ds contradicted by 'The Secrets I Keep'. In that they are around the same age Gerkuman 17:05, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Also, why would he choose Strong Sad to relate to? That angle doesn't make sense. But you'll note that Matt is 30 and Mike is 33 - that's their age, no? One could assume (if one was prone to speculation) that Strong Bad is about their age. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 17:40, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I see nothing contradictory in 'The Secrets That I Keep'. All it shows is what went on in their childhood, and it has no reference to ages whatsoever.
Still, this may give an age range for Strong Bad, but it offers nothing useful toward determining Strong Sad's age. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:15, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
I think the comment about relating to 18-24 yr olds is based on that being considered the key demographic for those who specialize in "edgy humor." So I really don't think that it can in anyway be seen as a way to estimate Strong Bad's age (there have been plenty of people of all ages who have tried to appeal to this demographic, often by changing their appearence), as for why he picks Strong Sad???? That has me baffled too, unless you want to take into account that Strong Sad listens to college radio and may be of that age group (although I think we're getting really speculative here, well beyond encyclopedic bounds.)- ISTC 19:28, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Or he could be joking or wrong. He's not the smartesr fork in the shead you know. He make many mistakes and we know how bad he is when it comes to technoligy. Though I'm only saying this becaus I'm against Srong bad being older than me. Yo yo mom


Hey there Elcoolio, I wanted to ask you about L'Chaim as is pertains to this article. As I have heard it pronounce L'Chaim in hebrew is a three syllibol phrase (lo-high-em) whereas chai in english is one syllibol (ch-i). Isn't this just a coincidence in spelling? I R F 17:41, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

{What is written here is not from the perspective of someone who deeply studied the language, just of someone speaking it. Please read with it as such} Well, I'm not going to meddle in the affairs of Wikipedia, but I would have spelled "Lekhaim" (as I like to differentiate between the English or Hindi sound from the Hebrew one, but that would have ruined the joke). You can pronounce it le-kha-yim, or le-kha-im, but not "lo-high-em" or anything like that, unless you want to sound like a heavy-accented tourist. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:52, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
but I am a heavily accented tourist. I know how to make that scratchy k sound in le-kha-im, I just don't know what that sound is called or how to write it. I R F 17:54, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
The Hebrew letter for the sound is Khet and the sound is called Voiceless uvular fricative. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 18:06, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Woman's Rights?

Don't you think that when Strong Bad says to Marzipan "I'm legally obligatted to have you here," is a reference to woman's right movements? - Zerlock1124

It could be any of a number of things. Maybe he lost a bet and foolishly signed a contract. Maybe she sued him for not appearing in enough Strong Bad Emails. Who can really say without more info? --Jaycemberween (Ho ho ho!) 19:53, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
