[edit] Transcript

After taking the quiz, Strong Bad analyzes the results and tells you how you did. Below are the details of what he says depending on how many answers you got right.

[edit] When you get all ten answers correct:

STRONG BAD: Well, you obviously cheated, which means you're my kind of person. Have a cookie.

{Strong Bad holds up a cookie sheet with some cookies on it. A 3x5 card comes onto the screen with a recipe:}

The Poopsmiths Super Deluxe You-Know-What Cookies
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinammon
2 cups YOU-KNOW-WHAT
Mix everything together in a toilet bowl. Spoon onto ungreased, rusty cookie sheet.
Bake at 800 degrees until golden black.

[edit] When you get eight or nine answers correct:

STRONG BAD: Oh, man. I knew you had crap for brains, but, I mean, it's like the {beating fist on desk} crap in your brains {stops hitting desk} has crap for brains.

[edit] When you get seven answers correct:

STRONG BAD: {in a mother's voice} Sweetheart, wake up! It's time for diaper school, where it's okay to be as stupid as you are!

[edit] When you get five or six answers correct:

STRONG BAD: {singing} Da-da da-da da da! You're the stupidest guy and you probably eat stupid pie, so go home and cry, you very stupid GU-UY!

[edit] When you get three or four answers correct:

STRONG BAD: Oh, brother. I know kids in diaper school that are smarter than you, man!

[edit] When you get one or two answers correct:

STRONG BAD: Okay, that does it. You're the stupidest guy in the world. Oh, or stupidest girl. Hey, you'll have to pardon me. {squints} I can't see very well from here without my glasses.

[edit] When you get it all wrong:

[edit] Answers

  1. c. Dokle II
    Found in Theme Song Video. See the video.
  2. b. Disco Tech
    This is the only answer you cannot find anywhere in the current version of the site. As the question itself states, it should be found in Bubs's biography, but when the new Characters page was created they failed to include this vital piece of information in Bubs's new bio. The old bio is still accessible, but you have to know the URL since there aren't any links to it anywhere on the site. This fact was alluded to, but not explicitly stated in rated. See the page.
  3. d. wear a bikini!
    Found on Main Page 3 when you hover over "Store". See the page.
  4. a. Garfield
    Found in Homestarloween Party. See the video.
  5. a. thirty-two
    Found in The Luau. See the video.
  6. c. Why Must You Suck So Bad?
    Found in Strong Bad Sings. See the video.
  7. b. 285,194
    Found in A Jorb Well Done. See the video.
  8. a. Prance
    Found in the Hairstyle Runner game. Play the game.
  9. d. He took a vow of silence
    Originally found in the Who Said What Now? game (accessible through the Handheld Games Menu). Play the game. It's also in The Poopsmith's video biography on the Characters page. See the video.
  10. a. strudel
    Found in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 2.0, message 4. See the video.

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • If you don't get a perfect score on the quiz, you can move the mouse over the name plate, microphone and "diploma" in Strong Bad's office and Strong Bad will say different things.
    • Name plate:
      STRONG BAD: Hey, keep your greasy fingers off that.
    • Microphone:
      STRONG BAD: Hey, don't touch that!
    • Diploma:
      STRONG BAD: Pretty impressive, huh? I bet you're pretty impressed.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Ditto machines were once popular in schools for making copies, and these machines typically used purple ink. Copies made in a ditto machine also had a very strong, distinctive smell, which explains the page title.

[edit] Trivia

  • If you right click and zoom in on Strong Bad's paper on his desk at the end, you can read what it says. It reads:
Strong Bad isn't so strong after all. If he tried hard, which of the following could he lift?

a. an ounce c. a week
b. a weak d. pepper
  • This is the first appearance of cinnamon.
  • This is the first time an index card has appeared.

[edit] Remarks

  • The sign on Strong Bad's desk is misspelled as "Prinicpal Strong Bad". This "mistake" appears again in CGNU and Teen Girl Squad Issue 8, and has apparently been accepted as the spelling for Strong Bad's title.
  • Both "Why Must You Suck So Bad?" and "The Only Thing Wrong With You Is Everything" do not appear on Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits, but only one is considered correct, because this quiz is referring to the Strong Bad Sings toon.
  • If you get a perfect score, Strong Bad jogs the papers on the desk wearing his boxing gloves as normal. His hands move down behind the desk, and seconds later, without moving, he is seen wearing oven mitts.

[edit] Goofs

  • Cinnamon is spelled incorrectly as "cinammon" on the recipe card.
  • Manufactured is spelled incorrectly as "maufactured" on question number 8.

[edit] Glitches

  • If you really are Strong Bad's kind of person, there's a glitch in the quiz that will allow you to cheat. Simply hold the mouse button down on an answer and it'll tell you if it's right or wrong. Keep holding the mouse button and move your mouse away from the answers before you let go. It won't count it as an answer, so you can pick again. The red X or check mark that appears will remain, however.
  • Very rarely, even if you don't get a perfect score, Strong Bad will stop in the middle of his line and start saying the "perfect score line".

[edit] Inside References

  • The name Crazy Go Nuts University is a reference to the line "Things were just about to start getting crazy-go-nuts" from The Luau.
  • The phrase "Dansk! What's that staunch?" is used in the song "Poot-Slap".
  • The oven mitts Strong Bad wears when offering the cookies are the same ones he wore in the In Search of the Yello Dello.
  • Strong Bad's voice going high at the end of his song may be a reference to when he does the same thing in his song "How Awesome I Am" in Strong Bad Sings.
  • On the paper below all of the question papers, the words "had", "than", and part of "problems" are visible. This is most likely a reference to Coach Z saying he has "more than 2 problems" in Who Said What Now?.
    • If you view the source, then the following text is viewable, which when put in a proper order does imply this fun fact:
If Homestar drank 18 glasses of melonade, if coach z really had bkbkbkbkbkkbmore than 
hjhjhjhjhj b problems, hjhkhjkhjkhs does he            have?
  • "You-know-what" is another, rarely used name for whatsit.
