I kind of have to say, I object to the fun fact concerning Strong Bad's family. There have been at least a couple references to the Strong Brothers' parents before, the first of which that comes to mind is in the sbemail "the facts". -- awk

What's up with this thing about Coach Z and basketballs and what 'Matt' thinks? -- Mithent 10:51, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)

You can't marry your guitar, Caleb!

An old version of the transcript said that the TV actor said, "You can't marry your guitar, Caleb!" instead of "Can you play your guitar, Caleb?" I listened to the file, and I actually think it's the first line. Who cares that "It don't make sense!!!!11111111111oneoneone"? Nothing on HSR makes sense! It sounds nothing like "Can you play", and everything like "You can't marry".

I'm not going to edit the transcript, though. Then someone would revert it and call me an idiot. :-p mathgrant 16:45, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)

That was me who reverted it and... uh... you're right, it DOES sound like that. My bad. I shoulda checked that one over before reverting (of course, it was in the middle of two clearly bad edits...) --Jay 17:00, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)

So long, suckers

This is from the Simpsons, isn't it?

No, it's a common phrase. Please sign your posts. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]

How do we really know Homestar doesnt have a Stupid Uncle Egg?

Er, because the narration says so? </duh> --Jay 21:35, 17 Feb 2005 (MST)

Do you think they will make Stupid Uncle Egg shirts? I want one.

I'm pretty sure that they won't have a Stupid Uncle Egg shirt, for one, he doesn't exist. Also, they never designed him, so if they did make such a shirt, they'd have to design a character that doesn't exist and that nobody cares about except for you. →evin290 10:17, 20 Feb 2005 (MST)

Cheating the The

  • This is the first time that The Cheat has been directly addressed as just "Cheat" without the word "The" preceeding it, as well as the first time that Strong Bad has been directly addressed by another character with a "The" preceeding his name! This may possibly be an add-on to the senseless names used in this email, although it is more likely a transposition of The Cheat's 'the' to Strong Bad's name.


  • When Homestar walks in on Strong Bad and The Cheat, he mixes up their names and greets them as "Cheat and The Strong Bad", transposing the "The". This is a new variation on Homestar's tendency to screw up other peoples' names.

The former was replaced by the latter. The problem is, even if you didn't like the original, the latter fact is utterly useless (basically repeats what's in the transcript.) You know, some people like knowing facts about the first time something happens - that's kind of the reason I split Trivia from Remarks (which is what the new fact is AT BEST) in the first place! --Jay 00:32, 19 Feb 2005 (MST)

I changed it to an alternate form that doesn't have the mention of "The Strong Bad" and doesn't have the unnecessary note appended to the end. I also added a comment requesting that people mention WHAT IS SO HORRIBLE about the fact before they change it or append useless comments to the end. I don't mean to sound arrogant, but BaconS's rewrite was useless incarnate, and we don't need to know WHY it's the first time he's just "Cheat"; the fact simply states that it IS. --Jay 00:06, 20 Feb 2005 (MST)
I hope I don't bother anyone by changing it to the fact that it's the first time any character refers to The Cheat as simply Cheat. --Shingen 18:37, 25 Feb 2005 (MST)
