Mustard Man

Real-World References says: --"In the Homsar "Semi-Annual Mustard Man Award" easter egg, "Mustard Man" is a reference to a photo of a guy covered in mustard that circulated around the Internet in 2002."--

Does anyone else feel that that is a stretch.

Yeah, it sounds more like a bit of Homsar randomness my dear Annonys. Sign your comments. --TaranchulaVamp15 16:20, 25 Jul 2005 (CST)

Blue Book

I think "Blue book" is actually referring to Kelly Blue Book which is a resource book for people who want to buy/sell their used cars. When discussing the price of a used car people will often check the "blue book" for the cars value.

That makes sense to me, but I didn't know. Feel free to add it as a Real-World Reference. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 08:45, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Strong Bad's Shoes

Has anyone else notcied that Strong Bad's shoes could be his feet, like how his mask and boxing gloves are his face and hands? This is evidenced in the "Stinkiest Diapey" award (he wears the shoes even as a baby) and the huge tube socks ad from modeling. (He's wearing the shoes under his socks) Poopsmith Z

Wouldn't surprise me one bit. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 09:10, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Iiiiiit's possible. --TaranchulaVamp15 12:12, 25 Jul 2005 (CST)
From Stand-Up we at least know his shorts are not his... never mind

Cutest Couple

This is fairly obvious, but does anyone think it's worth mentioning that Bubs' "Cutest Couple" is a reference to the widely-held practice of Senior Favorites, when high school seniors vote on their classmates for the yearbook?

  • Also called "Superlatives", which, BTW, is the name of the chapter that Bubs' picture appears in. Yeah, it is obvious IMHO. Of course, most "cutest couples" in yearbooks are TWO people... --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 22:58, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

No Photo available

Somehow, the "No Photo Available" for Marzipan's record makes me think back to "Happy Fireworks!", in which Bubs says Marzipan is still gone for the summer. How about y'all? --Ookelaylay 23:51, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

That's what I thought of too. I'm not quite sure if the connection is enough for a fun fact though. --mibluvr13dígame 23:58, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I was thinking more that someone (either Strong Bad or Marzipan) exaggerated the claim. But either explanation could work. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 00:55, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I've been wondering about something related to this. Is anything going on with Missy in real life that would keep Marzipan off the site? (And before you say it, I know that they don't need her voice to use Marzipan's picture. But her prolonged absence is unusual.) — It's dot com 01:03, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
If I'm not mistaken, the last time Marzipan's voice was heard was in a Store Easter Egg, which was (AFAIK) created on May 23. Yeah, it has been a while... --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 01:16, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I think that it has been a couple of months since we have seen miss pan. Now that it has been so long, we can safely safely assume that Miss Palmer has gone AWOL. All that I know is that I am glad that Matt isn't doing the voices. User:Rogue Leader.sig
I don't think she went absent without leave, exactly. We can only guess what's going on in her life. —BazookaJoe 01:32, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Uh, I was kinda making a stab of not good humor. let me rephrase, I think that something has come up, and Missy doesen't have time to do Marzipan voices. User:Rogue Leader.sig
Yeah, but I know we can't make it a remark of any sort. It's just speculation on all parts. --Ookelaylay 02:03, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC) PS- Maybe Mike and Missy got a divorce? Or maybe Missy's been in the hospital or something?
I believe that it is more likely a family affair, and if there was a devorce, Marzy would be killed off. User:Rogue Leader.sig
According to IMDb, she's the co-producing some movie called The Unseen. That would certainly keep her busy for awhile. --mibluvr13dígame 03:02, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Regardless of whatever is going on with Missy in real life, they don't need her to draw a picture of Marzipan. I think this was just a joke - leaving it open what exactly Marzipan was doing to get that award.--Eytanz 14:31, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Strong Sad's the Cheat fountain pen

Did anyone notice that the tip of Strong Sad's Pen was yellow with black spots, Just like the cheat!

Dear Annony- Have you ever watched "STRONG BAD IS IN JAIL"? It's the same pen there, and it wasn't noted then. --Ookelaylay 02:56, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Ummm...I'm not touching this one...it's too easy... --TaranchulaVamp15 00:25, 26 Jul 2005 (CST)

It just has a yellow tip with black ink smeared on it. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 06:22, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
