How exactly are they freed?

Sooo, does the KOT poop them out? Is it safe to assume that? - SCCakes


Is this the end of Pom Pom?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? -Alex H.

Well, if Homestar escaped the Horrible Painting in Jibblies 2, I'm sure Pom Pom can escape the vast emptiness of space. - OkayGraphics 14:26, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Nebulon first times

Thisis the first time we actually see Nebulon in a toon or sbemail, right? -Ein Poltergeist (not a dumptruck)

If you don't count when he was PBTC, then yes. Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:26, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Mention where Red Angelo comes from

Nobody has put this in yet, but, the Red Angelo and the other kids names commented on come from the urban legend of kids being named Orangejello and Lemonjello.

I volunteer in a NBICU and I am sorry to say that there are actually people who have named their children this. mister t 18:31, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
I know for a fact that I live about 10 miles away from Lemonjello and Orangejello. Kevin G. Dannerson 19:07, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
This is claimed as fact in the book Freakonomics, so I put it in with a reference. I think it's pretty clear as a reference to the event itself, though whether or not they actually got it from Freakonomics is uncertain. Keep in mind, though, it's a recent bestseller that sold three million copies, so it's a likely source. --TheNicestGuy 15:20, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
This story has been around waaay longer than Freakonomics. I heard it when I was a kid in the 80's. The Freakonomics text is very unlikely to be the source; why would the Chaps brothers mention another very common urban legend (the headlights flashed at a gangster car) at the same time unless they were referring to common urban legends.
Good point. I entered that just before I read the Snopes story about headlights, which I'd never heard before. Makes more sense now; Freakonomics was probably passing it along without knowing whether it was true or not just like everyone else. --TheNicestGuy 15:53, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Is this the first time the King of Town was actually USEFUL?

In Strong Bad's perspective, at least.-Thnikkafan

New Animations

two notable points. 1) as someone put somewhere in Fun Facts, bubs' arms are animated like coach z's were in Trogday 08. BUT!! they were already animated like this in nightlife and Happy Dethemberween. 2) we've never, NEVER seen strong bad's mouth do what it's doing at the end of the email. somebody should fit these into the remarks --Zatchman 15:39, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

all i know, is that whoever wrote that fun fact failed to use english grammar rules or something. I read it 4 or 5 times and only have a guess as to what it means -Jdhannan 17:26, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
i see what you mean. i didn't read it carefully the first time. well, since i now have time, i guess i'll just handle this bit myself. --Zatchman 20:27, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

actually, i move that we no longer bother with mentioning the new animation style for bubs' arms, if not including this sbemail, than from now on. --Zatchman 20:37, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Space station

At first I thought the space station in the space background was a copy of the one from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Then I looked up some images I realized that the original was a double wheel and not really that similar. The only striking feature they share is the "centrifuge wheel" design, which I imagine is not unique. Is there a station somewhere in sci-fi that looks more similar to this one? Something from Star Trek, maybe? (I browsed around Memory Alpha, but nothing jumped out at me. --TheNicestGuy 15:39, 21 January 2008 (UTC)


If we don't have a running gag about flavors, we should. (If it already exists, I couldn't find it.) I thought about just "Color Flavors" but we also have water described as Malinko- and Strong Bad-flavored water (in rough copy). We have orange- and black-flavored from Malloween Commercial, Bubs's sno-cone flavors, and the drinks in Lookin at a Thing in a Bag. Any name suggestions? Anyone is welcome to take this ball and run with it; I ain't so gung-ho about creating articles at the moment. OptimisticFool 18:36, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

I dunno, we could have an Unusual Flavors or a Flavor Variations section for things like the flavored water and the orange-and-black marshmallows, respectively, but I don't think normal flavors like grape, cherry, green apple, etc. deserve a mention outside of the articles about the food/drink.-- DongleGoblin 19:22, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
E.L. Cool created Color flavored. OptimisticFool 19:41, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Interesting. Without reading this discussion I made Color flavored. Modestly Ok minds think very closely, right? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:42, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
In my defense, I was talking about flavors, not-color flavors. Still, my bad. Sorry.-- DongleGoblin 19:59, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Highly Intellectual Property

Are there anymore instances of Strong Sad wearing the glasses he wears in this sbemail and rough copy. I'm wondering if they can be featured as a running gag.-- DongleGoblin 19:37, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

didn't he also wear those in business trip? --Zatchman 20:29, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
I don't think so. Those had legs, or whatever you call the part of the glasses that are held up by the ears. They might be a variation though. I haven't seen the DVD, but could someone who has tell me if they're the same glasses that are featured in Accent?-- DongleGoblin 20:43, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
