Ding! On Point Kings is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


[edit] The Non-interesting, but Informative, Etymology of "On Point"

What does On Point mean? It's also in that dating game Strong Bad made (Marzipan: "Strong bad is on point"). Does it mean cool? Does it deserve a page of its own?

I can't tell you for sure what it means, but I can vouch that it pre-dates HR references; there's an NPR program by the same name, and Googling it shows it in connection with various businesses and agencies. So no, page not good. — notstrongorbad 09:18, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)

"En pointe" (pronounced the same way) is also a ballet term and is honestly what I thought of first. Crystallina 05:18, 25 October 2005 (UTC)
LOL! Somehow, I don't think that's what Strong Bad had in mind. (Presenting: Mark Morris and the En Pointe Kings! In a new work by critically acclaimed choreographer Strong Bad!) —AbdiViklas 05:21, 25 October 2005 (UTC)
I don't think that there's a referance to anything, homestar related or not, in the name. TBC may have just liked the sound of the name, and decided to use it. I may be wrong, of course. — talk Bubsty edits 04:38, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] i'll take fourrrrrrr!

since it has the main citezens of SBdia as club members, are OPK an extension of Strongbadia?-that guy

[edit] On Point could....

On Point could be a reference to Cedar Point's blog, On Point.

They're both general mentions of backdoors in computers. --DorianGray 05:52, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
