Delete the fun facts

If you don't like the fun facts, you shouldn't delete the whole section. Just delete the facts and add some of your own.--Hysterical Woman 11:33, 25 Sep 2004 (MST)

Closed Fun Facts

Marzipan's Parasol (declined but overruled by DVD commentary)

Marzipan is carrying a toothpick parasol one would normally receive with a tropical drink, only hers seems to be much larger than normal. Except that tropical drink parasols are modelled after real parasols . . . which are, you know, real . . .

  • Decline. I guess some people have never seen actual people-sized paper parasols. Marzipan's is not a drink parasol, it's an Asian-style paper one! Aurora the Homestar Coder 19:45, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second Man, what a dumblecake. Rudeboy87 19:58, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second I'm a dumblecake too then. I didn't realize just *how* similar a drink parasol resembles a real parasol till I looked up the two right now. An honest mistake on whoever's part, no need for insults.--rsl12 15:58, 7 Apr 2005 (MDT)
      • You're insulted by the term "dumblecake?" Rudeboy87 08:30, 8 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Decline The first part doesn't matter, and the second part doesn't make sense, or have anything to so with the first part! --acekirby13 20:05, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Decline. It's just a parasol.TakuaKaita600 16:46, 12 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Looks like the conventional wisdom was utterly wrong on this one. From the DVD commentary:

MARZIPAN: Oh! That is the, um, the umbrella from Mike's cocktail.
MIKE: Yeah.
MARZIPAN: I just grabbed that at the last minute; I thought it really added to the scene.
MIKE: Yeah, I really like that.
MATT: It's clearly— yeah, it's clearly just a cocktail umbrella though, made large.

Ima add it back to the article! -- tomstiff 18:50, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

The more I think about it, the more I wonder why we're listing all those facts "according to the DVD commentary." The only items that I think may be important enough to be included in the facts at the top (including this one about the parasol) are the items about Gooblies and the Cloitsterizer. For all the others, it seems like someone could just read the commentary. — It's dot com 20:15, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I put it back was because the only reason it was deleted is that it was voted out. The vote turned out to be wrong. -- tomstiff 21:12, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
What's really funny is that the DVD commentary was available during the voting process! -- tomstiff 21:15, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Heh oh hee

Just how much do the Brothers know about Japan? One of the myriad bits of trivia that annoying anime fans pick up and show off is the Hehenonomoheji face drawn by Japanese children. It's made up of the characters in its name:

he へ (pronounced heh)

no の

mo も

and

ji じ

While the anime smiley face ^_^ developed unrelated to the Hehenonomoheji, they are very much alike in construction and concept, which is conducive to Chapsian conflation. Furthermore, the carat ^ is very similar to the he へ ... and Strong Bad pronounces it correctly.

Coincidence?
