[edit] KoT Food Page

I think this page is a good idea, but it could use a better title. Maybe the King Of Town's Foodstuffs or something. Also, it definately needs a lot of editing and more content. --The Lurker 23:16, 8 May 2005 (UTC)

I'm thinking about "The King of Town's Food". And what do you mean by more editing and content? I think it looks fine. →FireBird
The King Of Town's Food sounds good. And it is maturing into a decent article now, but I made that first comment shorty after the article was created. The format wasn't great and there was very little content. --The Lurker 02:49, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
Yeah change it to "The King of Town's Food". That will make it somewhat less mystifying. -- Tony Stony 22:52, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

Does anyone have a bigger version of the Pork Snagglins images, so that it fits in with the rest of the images? --The Lurker 00:08, 16 May 2005 (UTC)

It's because it's a .gif. Someone needs to replace it with a .png picture. (Those will resize for any occasion) -- Joshua 03:10, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
Actually, PNG's won't resize any bigger than the original without looking pixelated. I created and uploaded a new version of the image. What do you think? — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 22:29, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Imply vs. Infer

My change to fishsticks was reverted because it "didn't change the meaning". But I know the difference between implication (something done by the speaker) and inference (something done by the listener).

What I am getting at, is that we don't really know that the Prince of Town gained weight specifically from the lifetime supply of fishsticks (as opposed to, say, anything else), or that TBC implied this was definitely the case. However, we seem to have inferred it.

So, how was the meaning not changed? ¡ɯooz + 04:24, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Ah, if that's what you are saying then it should definitely be "imply" as the whole point of the easter egg is that implication. — Defender1031*Talk 04:27, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
That's the problem with implications-- kind of hard to know they are there. But it is true that the egg seems pointless without there being one. Thanks for the clarification. ¡ɯooz + 04:32, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
There really isn't anything to suggest that it was those specific fish sticks that made the king so weighty. The easter egg more or less is just the early beginnings of his over-eating. If the fish sticks were the only extra large portion of something he'd eaten between then and now, he probably would have worn it off already (depending on how long ago flashback is supposed to be). We can say "it is implied that the then svelt, young Prince of Town kept the fishsticks, starting him on the road to his now trademark eating habits." But to say the fishsticks are why he's so fat now is guesswork, and unlikely.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 05:32, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
I guess that's not really the topic of this thread. Sorry. I kinda misunderstood. But still, that's what I think about it!--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 05:35, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
Don't be too sorry. Is still good points! --DorianGray 05:38, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Duplicate?

Aside from the image gallery, how is this different from The King of Town#Favorite Foods? — Defender1031*Talk 02:58, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

I wonder why no one ever replied to this... seriously. — Defender1031*Talk 19:34, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
How impatient! It's not even been a year. Seriously! But, ummm, seriously, maybe we should merge that section into this article. So we keep this article and reduce the section to a link here. And maybe remove the word "favorite" from the section title. Loafing 23:21, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
That section is more complete than this one, but has no images, and is named 'Favorite' Foods despite it being a complete list of everything we've seen him eat voluntarily. I say link here. TsuyoiWarui 22:27, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
TsuyoiWarui has a great point. My vote is a Merge the section to this article and then from the KOT article, Link. Strongkinghomsarsmith 22:35, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Anyone else? — Defender1031*Talk 11:39, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
I'd also like to see all relevant information moved from the table on King of Town to this article, and then provide a link between the two. So yeah, give it a shot. – The Chort 12:46, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
I say link here. It seems like a good idea based on what everyone else has said. If that's the general consensus, I should go ahead and change the other page. Any objections? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:40, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
I agree to link. -- 12:30, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Wow, this discussion is really, really in need of agreement. There's been like, 5 apocalypses within this time.

MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 02:58, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Apocalypse? Anyway, I say link, and that seems to be the consensus of everyone involved in this discussion. Since there have been no other votes in 3 years, I guess it's probably time to do just that.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 03:11, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Done. Since this is a more detailed chart than that one was, many of the items here now are in serious need of an image and a description. And it probably could use some cleanup work. But everything that was there is now here.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 04:29, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

[edit] 'Even by Homestar Runner standards'

I was confused by this (we have seen Homestar eat some odd stuff, lightbulbs etc.) but realized it means 'strange even by the standards set by the entire canon'. But these ARE the crazy standards set by the whole of the Homestar Runner universe. I just think this should be reworded, but I can't figure out how best to put it.

[edit] Mayo

What evidence do we have that the KoT ever ate the mayo in his air vents? I mean, sure, if he found it, he probably did, but we don't know that. SB just put it there to stink up the place. --Onamuji (b/w T. C.  ) 04:33, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

I think that this page is a good idea and that it does not need more info., althoughit could use a better name.
