[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Couscous is a food which consists of grains made from semolina and is traditionally served under a meat or vegetable stew.

[edit] Trivia

  • This toon is an Easter egg itself, found under "Puppet Style" in Decemberween in July.
  • This toon was added to the menu exactly one week after Decemberween in July was released.

[edit] Remarks

  • The Cheat again misnames Marzipan's guitar Carol as "Carl". He also did so in the email marzipan.
  • When loading, it says "Load it!" instead of "loading..."
  • The miscellaneous sweaters say:
    • "Jing"
    • "ho hum"
    • "na na na na"
    • "what shopping??"
    • "fruit cake is gross!" (with a picture of a fruitcake circled and crossed out)
    • "Back"
  • One of the yarn balls says "yawn".
  • The font on the bag is The Cheat's rendition of Bauhaus93, which is also the font used on Homsar's shirt.
  • The sign next to Marzipan at the start says "free concert for couscous". Later on, it says "free concert for The Cheat!"

[edit] Inside References

  • The "free concert" sign is a reference to the "free concert for birds" sign from the email marzipan.
  • The sweater saying "Jing" spells it "JiNG" and one says "FRUiTCAKE iS GROSS", yet more instances of lowercase i's.

[edit] Real-World References

  • In one scene, "Seasonal Sweat" is written at the bottom of the screen in a font like the band Slayer uses.
  • The "Seasonal Sweater Bag" is styled after the "little/medium/big brown bag(s)" that are obtained at Bloomingdale's.
