[edit] Homestar's Asymmetrical Eyebrow (Eyelid?) Face

Do you think it's worth mentioning in the article that this is the first time we've seen that face that Homestar makes by squinting with one eye and raising the brow of the other? It seemed interesting to me, and they used it a lot in this cartoon. --MenacingBanjo 11:04, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

I noticed the same. I see no reason not to mention it. — Defender1031*Talk 14:31, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Nobody seemed to mention it, so I took the liberty of doing it myself. YoghNess 20:17, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Does anyone else find that face disturbing, especially compared to the lower-eyelids-up expression he used to have for similar circumstances? -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 02:58, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] This to a trope?

I had a feeling that "Head for the hills" appeared to act similar to this trope. 01:19, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

You can't spell "YouCanRunButYouCannotHide", "paranoia", and "no, this isn't really a useful fun fact regardless of how true it is" without no. I don't think the wiki is trying to delve into any sort of deep literary analysis. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 02:51, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Similar in what way? That they're both cliches? I'm with Purpy here, not worth mentioning. — Defender1031*Talk 08:24, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree with everyone else. 01:05, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Summerween

Are you sure that Homestar said 'summer even' instead of 'Summerween'? Come to think of it, could Summerween be their version of summer break? I mean, they do call Christmas Decemberween. 01:02, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

No, it's distinctly "summer even". Also, when Homestar says "Decemberween", he stresses "de-CEM-ber-WEEN". Here, he only stressed "SUM-mer-e-ven". It doesn't matter since the audio is too clear to question, but it's good to take note of that anyway.
Now, on Halloween they certainly aren't taking a break from their normal activities. Strong Bad checks his email (Doomy Tales of the Macabre) and Bubs sells concessions (almost every Halloween). Decemberween is the same deal (Marzipan even goes to free baby seals at the Worfs wharfs that day). And they have had "summer break" before, but it's been under different names, like "Somber Vacation" and plenty of "vacations" that have no other name. So unless they actually say "Summerween", this isn't a thing.
But of course, with my luck, they will say it in the next toon. Grumble grumble time machine broken grumble grumble...-- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 05:32, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] b/w

Is this the first time 'backed with' has been said aloud on the site? It's nearly always written only. -- 18:38, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

I think so. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:50, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
That said, i'm not sure it's worth a mention on this page. — Defender1031*Talk 22:07, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Walking a couple of feet

Homestar says he has never walked a couple of feet to be sure that the field was lined with bushes, but he built a deck around the bushes in No Hands On Deck! Is this (a) notable (b) digging way too deep to try to find a counter-example (c) a coincidence that I just happened to notice (d) all of the above? The Knights Who Say Ni 19:18, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

I would say answer choice (d). It sounds good enough for a remark; it might also be an inconsistency possibly? - Catjaz63 21:38, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
He could build around them without knowing what they are... He seemed to just be building around everything in his path. As such, it's interesting to discuss here, but hardly worth an official mention. — Defender1031*Talk 16:39, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] F-Sack a reference to "Fsteak"?

I only recently learned about this one; it was from the a webcomic called "Hiimdaisy" (and more recently referenced in Undertale). When I watched this again today, it was the first thing that came to mind. Octan 05:40, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

What is F-Sack referring to, you hypothesize? If he were here to answer, I'm pretty sure he'd say he symbolizes his inner torment, trapped here by the Flash objects he contains. His struggle to pull away, to escape whatever Bubs and Coach Z have in store. But to no avail. </joke>
But even if that was the intent of the reference, how would we prove it...? This seems like a long shot, in my opinion. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 06:07, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
F-Sack literally just means "Flash-Sack" because he's putting deprecated actions and tweens in there because Flash is dying and they're making do with a bag of Flash until they can learn HTML5. - Catjaz63 09:36, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
