Easter Eggs

Well pretty good but I only found one Easter Egg it's when you click at the end "Love poems"

There's actually two by my count. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 05:47, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Gerly Werly?

*"I herly perly on gerly wurly" is a reference to a lyric in the Manfred Mann song
"Blinded By the Light." The lyric is "And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly."

I'm not sure if this is right or not. It seems like its more of a a stereotypical unintelligible British-style statement (no offense to those across the pond). Can I get a witness? DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 07:16, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't quite follow. Maybe if you could give an example of something ... similar? OptimisticFool 07:17, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure, but I swear I've heard that type of speech 'fore. And I'm PRETTY DANG SURE of it. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 07:19, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Ditto. -- 10:02, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Green Tongue?

Anyone else notice Tenerence Love's green tongue?— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 09:53, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Yeah. But then again, I'd expect that from a PBTC-done clip. Color inaccuracies like the purple boxing gloves and underwears. -- 10:04, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Homestar's poem

I know it's a type of poem, I just forgot the name. Can anyone remind me? -- 10:22, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

It's an acrostic poem. Shwoo 10:31, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah! Thank you. Now I can put that reference in Not X -- 10:36, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Email Deuce Aught Aught

Sooo, email 200 right around the corner. What's a possible theme? Who's birfday it is? And I KNOW the KB ain't the plaice for speculation. -- 11:57, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

R&B Jam speculation

Doesn't it kind of sound a bit, melody-wise like Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles? -Alex H.

The Rub [Doctor]

The entry currently says that the blackboard has the word 'Rub' and an arrow pointing to Strong Bad. I thought the arrow was just pointing down, so that the board reads 'Rubdown'. Geddit?

Sky Mall

I know this is already in the reference section, but I believe Homestar mentioning that he buys all his groceries from Sky Mall is a further reference to comedian Jim Gaffigan. One of his famous jokes is about the cereal on the bottom shelf without a box, "like it's homeless." So then he doesn't want to admit he's actually buying this ceareal to the cashier, so he says he's "holding it for a friend," and that he "buys all his groceries from Sharper Image, you know, uh, Sky Mall."--ItalianBallerina 9:37, 26 May 2008 (CT)

It's a Ham Jam

This is Tenerence Love with a sweaty overweight jam! My name is Tenerence Love with a sweaty overweight ham/jam!

Everyone seems to agree that "jam" is the word the first time, tons disagree about the second. Let's put our heads together. OptimisticFool 17:02, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I am confident that the second line (not the first!) of Tenerence Love's song describes an overweight ham, rather than jam. People keep trying to change it to "jam". Do other people actually hear "jam" there? --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 17:02, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I hear "ham". (There's definitely no /dj/ sound.) It also makes sense, as hams are five, ten, or even twenty pounds. (Incidentally, I listened to it closely before even knowing what the specifics of this discussion were, and without being told what to listen for.) — It's dot com 17:20, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
As the guy who transcribed it, I'm not sure. I can't hear any consonant clearly, though I suppose "h" would be easier to hide, meaning it's a bit more likely to be "ham". Heimstern Läufer 19:20, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Release Date

This was on at some point before 10:30 last night, that would be the 25th. 20X6 GEM 17:56, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

It was released just after midnight, if I recall correctly, in EST (TBC's timezone as well as mine). So it was on Monday. --DorianGray 18:34, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
I woke up at 2 AM this morning (CDT, UTC -5) and this was up when I checked at 3 A. At about 5:30 I looked at Google's only result for sbemail195, and it said "5 hours ago." It's cutting it close (very early toon), but it was right around the break of Monday. -- 18:42, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
The file modified date is Monday, May 26, 2008 12:40:13 AM (EDT). — It's dot com 18:57, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I live in Arizona, so it could be a time zone thing. I believe there is a three hour difference between me and the Chaps, so that would explain it. 20X6 GEM 19:21, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
