*Nicolas's brothers may have gotten the idea that Strong Bad's legs were made of tape from [[halloweener]], where duct tape was wrapped around [[Homestar Runner|Homestar]]'s legs as part of a Halloween costume of Strong Bad.
 
-
**It's possible that the idea may have come from the way the reflection on Strong Bad's shoe is drawn: it has kind of a zig-zag look to it, similar to the pattern on the end of a piece of transparent tape when it's pulled from the dispenser.

STRONG BAD: {muttering} Ow-mnow, mnow, mnow... {louder} Mow-mnow, mnow, mnow... {stops muttering}

STRONG BAD: Nee-co-las. {typing} They said my legs were made of tape?! WHAT?? I mean, do I look like some kind of tape-leg? I can guarantee you, man, I am not a tape-leg.

{Strong Bad stops typing and lifts his leg up, where a piece of masking tape is stuck on the bottom of his shoe.}

STRONG BAD: I mean, look at this leg. Look... look at it there... Oh wait a minute, what's that on- OH, there's a little piece of tape on my shoe!

{Strong Bad removes the tape, and lowers his leg.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} That's what they were probably talking about. Yeah. You probably misunderstood them, man. No, they probably said I had tape on my leg or my shoe and you thought they said that my leg was made of tape. My leg is not made of tape. Pfffph! I must've just stepped on an innocent piece of tape...tape. {stops typing} All right, so until next week, send me some good ones. You know, some good ones.

{The Paper comes down.}
