Is the KOT Very Own Show a reference to Butter's Own Episode on South Park

Just a comment about the thoughts I had before realizing it was a sbemail instead of a KOT short! ~OptimumCoder

Almond paste filled sweet delight

I think Strong Bad is talking about Marzipan here... you know, the real type.--Dwedit 16:23, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

From Wikipedia: "Marzipan is a confectionery consisting primarily of ground almonds and sugar that derives its characteristic flavor from bitter almonds, which constitute 4% to 6% of total almond content by weight." Sounds reasonable to me. Thunderbird 16:24, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
I like it. Trey56 17:01, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH... I get it now. That fact was extremely poorly worded, hence my removal of it. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 17:29, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

The poopsmith speaketh!?

Did the poopsmith really just speak in this email? The voice sounds exactly like the poopsmith's in different town, but the poopsmith is shown shrugging afterwards like that wasn't his voice. I'd like to say that he didn't, but I'm not too sure about it. What are your opinions? - Wevegottapulse

I think it was him. Who else could it be? It sounded like he was about to lead the band into that "Oh Yeah" song from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Trey56 17:00, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Reply to Trey: Totally different "Ohhh Yeah", actually. The one in this email is higher-pitched and was pretty common to hear in this kind of music. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 18:21, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
There's certainly enough suggestion there (that this was The Poopsmith). Might I also point out that this was done in the same voice as the "Hello!" in different town.
THEN AGAIN! That was in Strong Bad's imagination. Do we have proof that this scene was NOT in Strong Bad's imagination? Did this senior prom actually happen? If not, having The Poopsmith speak here might not be as unusual as it would be if this senior prom really did happen. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 17:23, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
I personally think its safe to assume this email wasn't in Strong Bad's imagination. With how Strong Bad actually got The Cheat and Strong Mad to help him and all. (If it was, then we really can't trust anything that happens in H*R ever again. >.> ) - Joshua 18:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Fair enough. :) Since we can't absolutely prove it was The Poopsmith who said "Ohhh yeah!", there's a Fun Fact there that ties this occurrence together with different town. I believe that should suffice. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 18:21, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Everyone thought it was him, but Mr. Smith shook his head and shrugged, as if to say, "It wasn't me! I don't know who that was!"Trelawney 19:32, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Did the Oh Yeah remind anyone else of the Kool-Aid Man's catchphrase? Before the Poopsmith was shown I thought that was who was speaking. Don't know if it's good enough to be a Real Life reference. Crystallina 20:44, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

More than two prom...blems?

Current Fun Fact:

  • Marzipan's comment "...every freakin' year...." implies that she has attended the senior prom more than once. Because it is typically the final dance in high school, most people only attend the senior prom once.

I edited this from another version that said "it seems implausible that she would have attended it more than once". I beg to differ: There are a few reasons why she could have. (1) She could have gotten held back and repeated the third grade her senior year multiple times. (2) She could have gone with Homestar in previous years (and he'd probably be more likely to get held back). And (3) She could have served some other purpose in previous years.

My point is, I don't think we have enough to go on to say why she'd be at the prom multiple years. But a lot of cartoons and comics run on the implication that the characters never age, and they repeat the same years of their lives each year (a 365-day version of Groundhog Day, or something). That seems plausible in the HR Universe as well. Thus, I think the Fun Fact should kinda gloss over the "implausibilities" and relate Marzipan's comment to the way it is in real life.

And for the block, do you agree?Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 17:55, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

I agree. Also, Marzipan could have simply heard that pantless-Strong Bad won Prom Queen multiple years in a row or whatever happened. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 17:57, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

It makes more sense to me that they just all go to a senior prom every year. 18:03, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Everybody everybody! Longest pants!

I would suggest that there definitely needs to be a reference regarding the ongoing pants/no-pants debate regarding Coach Z and Homestar. This seems to put the nail in the coffin that there are, in fact, no pants going on with either of them. Although (he realizes) it could also be argued that Coach Z wears a body suit, which doesn't technically have any stand-alone pants, which still leaves the door open for his "green-body/green body suit" ambiguity. (PS: Stand Alone Pants would be a great name for a rock band.)

There's a reference to Homestar's Pants already on the page. That's where the debate is most fully explained. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 18:42, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Whether or not this is proof Homestar doesn't wear pants should be put up for a vote me thinks. The obvious argument for would be the fact that his pants didn't poof away at all and his discussion with pompom during the easteregg seemed to imply he was covering. The arguments against could be that Strong Bads remote malfunctioned, or perhaps Homestar wears pants that look exactly like his legs!

Thank Goodness!

I'ma just glad Strong Bad wore undawears this day. Thank you, thank you. Back to where I was! Homfrog 18:30, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah. I actually didn't realise that Strong Bad was the only one in the group that wears pants until now. Maybe Bubs too, but he wasn't in the shot. I can't imagine how Bubs would look pantsless.--DumDe 18:39, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

There's something I'd prefer not to think about... --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 18:41, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Hey, ummm, everybody?

This wasn't really the senior prom. It all happens in the present, and evrybody was probably preforming for Strong Bad's little idea thing.

See Joshua's comment above, about whether it was in SB's imagination or not. If it wasn't a canonical occurence, then we really can't trust anything that happens on H* again. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 19:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

All the Kingsmen

I know the band's name All the King's Men is more than likely a reference to the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty (which remarkably isn't in RWR). But it could also be a reference to the rock band "The Kingsmen", famous for their cover of "Louie Louie". Swimma Dan 20:00, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

  • It sounds plausible to me - sort of like Before and After Puzzles on Wheel of Fortune. It would fit the situation, since that seems to be the cover band type. Do I detect a double meaning? Image:SBsig.gifSBLOUNSKCHED! t/c 20:22, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
