:'''Pizazz''' is a noun. When applied to a person, it's slang for "enthusiasm." For inanimate objects, it can mean "showy" or "flashy." For example:

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Wiki

Please use the existing forum thread to discuss this email.

Response: A few things...
1. I don't have a forum account, and I don't want one. I already have a million accounts on a million different sites and I'm fed up of them all.
2. It's rude to delete things people have added from the Talk: namespace - that's what the Talk: namespace if for!
3. Talk: fits in with the whole Wiki nature thing far better than forums do. I have nothing against the existence of the forum, but as a Wiki fan I'd much rather discuss things here.
In response to your response:
1. Just use the same user name and password for all your many accounts and set them all to log in automaticly. Plus, can you immagine all the spam we would get if it was *not* required that people to log in on the forum? Besides, to have a user name on the wiki you now have to sign up anyway.
2. It's not rude. We are just trying to keep the wiki as professional looking as possable. You should have known that something would happen to your post by the request at the top of this page.
3. I agree that wikitalk fits in with the wiki thing better then a forum does, but, with this wiki at least, we have found that the forum works better for discussing the cartoons. Please remember that we have tried this both ways. ;-)
(Please note that I don't represent the opinions of the moderators of this wiki in anyway, but I've been here a while and these are my observations.)
Response [to James's #1] : that's a terrible, terrible idea! I used to do that many years ago. Then someone hacked one of the forums I was a member of, and used my username and password from that forum to log in to a different forum on which I had adminstrative access.
Response [to James's #2: I'm all for keeping the main wiki as clean and professional as possible, but the Talk: section is different - it's where standards are lower and people who just want to drop in a note without taking the time to clean it up to wiki standards can do so.
Response to all y'alls-I agree with IP Dude.I never joined the forum, but because of a different reason(My computer blocks 'em out).Are you gonna rob ME of the chance to discuss H*R toons?And yes,it is a bad idea,my own little sister has done that to me before.Ookelaylay

"Here Comes" song

Does anyone else think that the Here Comes the Strong Baaad theme song was not very reminiscent of the Thnikkaman song? I didn't notice that when I heard it first, and now that I'm thinking of them both, I don't hear the resemblance. What does everyone else think?

I agree. I didn't even think of the Thnikkaman song when I heard it. I think the tune is from some TV show or movie whose title escapes me at the moment. -- Tom 12:37, 15 Sep 2004 (MST
It's a lot more like the Bonanza theme song (though not exactly the same). Here's a link to the song.
I suppose that the wording is similar, but I don't think that this similarity was something they intended. And the Bonanza one is close, but I think there is a closer one. It sounds really familiar, but I haven't watched too many westerns lately though. --racerx_is_alive 15:08, 15 Sep 2004 (MST)

No one can resist a loaded Thnikkaman. Maybe, if Strong Bad uses this song, his P.O.P. may become stronger.

- Not Strong Bad


    • I was also reminded of the now-infamous Hardball interview with Georgia senator Zell Miller in which Miller ended up challenging Chris Matthews to a duel. Wouldn't surprise me, given that The Brothers Chaps are from Georgia... --codeman38 20:37, 15 Sep 2004 (MST)

Fun facts


  • This is one of the few (if not the only) Strong Bad Emails in which his song does not include the word 'email'.

as it was redundant.

Closed STUFF

So many a reference (DECLINED)

Given the Brothers Chaps' obsession with old video games, RyGuy might be a reference to the classic NES game Rygar, or Ryu from the Street Fighter series. It could also reference Fryguy, given their equal obsession with 80s youth-targeted advertising.

  • I'm not gonna write a "Declined" joke this week... Ryu was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this email, however since there's so many things it could be a reference to (just search the web for "RyGuy") it's not certain. Either pick one and prove it, or this is textbook TTATOT --phlip 15:41, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Declined "RyGuy" is a nickname for Ryan, not a reference to anything. I happen to have a friend named Ryan, who a lot of people call "RyGuy". Do I go around saying "Is that a reference to...?!" No, I don't. --acekirby13 20:54, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

Third Interview (DECLINED)

This is the third time Strong Bad has interviewed somebody. He "interviewed" Homsar (actually himself speaking for Homsar) in the email "interview" and he interviewed Homestar in the toon The Interview.

  • Accept. Nice one. hamrodrunner
  • Decline. This should never have been STUFF-ed. It should have been deleted outright. -- tomstiff 10:48, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second To paraphrase a below quote, fun facts aren't made to count how many times things happen. --acekirby13 13:21, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second Aurora the Homestar Coder 13:28, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Decline to the moon Firsts are noteworthy... thirds aren't so much. Rudeboy87 14:28, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Move/revise How about moving it to the Fast Forward of the "interview" e-mail and saying something like "Strong Bad also conducts interviews in The Interview and pizzaz." Tom H 17:25, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • How about not? Noting how many times Strong Bad conducts interviews isn't fun - anybody watching those e-mails can tell for themselves whether or not he's conducting interviews. And the fact that the two toons being referenced actually have the word "interview" in the title makes this one even more obvious and unnecessary. Declined --TheEggman 23:08, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second. -- The Real Zajac 15:24, 17 Apr 2005
  • Decline Nobody cares. Donny vs Universe
  • Severe Decline! First times are somewhat interesting, second times are not, and third times are hazardous to your health.
  • Declination Nation. No offense, man. I mean, you should get credit for trying, but it's just, well, boring. No one cares.TakuaKaita600 20:47, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Declorned. Nobody cares about thirds, or even seconds. First's are okay (mostly). But back to the subject, this is not a worth fun fact. {{HRFWiki:User:Super_Sam/sig}} 07:37, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • (accept?) i thought it was a good fact...
  • My card is totally D3CL1N3'D!!! I don't think this is worth mentioning. None of his "interviews" seem to get any information out of anyone anyway. --NFITC1
  • I thought it was good so, ACCEPTED!Umbertowasted

COMMENT'd!Does that make strong Bad a f'real journalist?

I think Homestar may be hacked......

I jus' checked up homestar today and well... look at quote of the week... sure, the bros chaps couldve done that but then i checked Toons. I got worried here. You cant get into big toons, shorts, holidays, puppet stuff, or the cheats toons... then if you click on the cover of the magazine, it will open to show you DENNIS. Not the guy but the heading is DENNIS. Then I headed on in to SBemails... NO LIST OF EMAILS!!!!!! Then I headed on over to the "FAQ" page and its in a little bros chapesque joke, Childrens Book Of FAQ or something like it... click on it to open it up and..... no FAQ, just a buncha crud! I dunno what the heck is goin' on here but I sure hope it gets better....

It's possible. But I think it more likely that there is a bandwidth problem, since I can't get in at all. --Jay (Gobble) 22:01, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Everything is normal here. — It's dot com 22:03, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Ditto. It seems to be fine on my end too.
Maybe it's loading from your cache? I intentionally keep my cache small (so updates actually appear; my computer and modem are fast enough to compensate.) This isn't the first time this week that H* has refused to load for me... --Jay (Gobble) 22:14, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
It's his flash. I have got this problem before. User:Total Spaceship Guy3/sig2

Buffalo-style Confusion

I think the reference to "Buffalo-style" should be rethought. It seems to me like they're just referencing the perplexing "Buffalo-style" adjective often applied to chicken wings. Tim Russert's hometown seems a little too esoteric, even for TBC.

Pizazz is a noun. When applied to a person, it's slang for "enthusiasm." For inanimate objects, it can mean "showy" or "flashy." For example:
"Strong Bad showed a lot of pizazz during his cabaret dance routine."
