Talk:The Battle of Strong Badia

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Ding! The Battle of Strong Badia 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.

I've been long trying to work out how to put in mention of The Cheat/Firebert's recon patrol... I think it could do with mention. I've been thinking something like:

Upon receiving word of the Homestarmy's pending invasion, Strong Bad sent his best operative, The Cheat (or Firebert, as he preferred to be known), to spy on the enemy colonel.

But I can't get anything further than that. Anyone who took a creative writing course wanna adapt my sentence into more? --DorianGray

I can't get it any better. AbdiViklas! We need you! — talk Bubsty edits 19:45, 7 January 2006 (UTC)
How about impending instead of pending? Vol Chem, 1st Tile of Ical 10:39, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Just as a comment from a reader, this article is superbly written, given its subject matter. =)

Thank you from all of us to all of you! We appreciate the compliment very much. :D BazookaJoe 03:15, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Seconded. I'm proud of my contributions here and of the wiki's efforts as a whole, here and elsewhere. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:29, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hmmm...I've been working on something....

I took a "War" infobox off of Wikipedia, and heavily edited it. Needless to say, I came up with this:

Template:Infobox Military Conflict Template:Campaignbox Battle of Strong Badia Template:Campaignbox Strong Badia

Argh, it's not working too good...

Oops, sorry, I deleted it before I saw this post. I didn't think it was a serious template. Anywho, there's really no need for such a template, as we don't really have that many military conflicts documented on this wiki. Loafing 01:47, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Hey!

Whoever made that template, thanks so much! I tried to make one using a heavily edited template from Wikipedia, and I don't know what happenned, but it ended up messing up the page, so...thanks. :)

It looks like we have VolatileChemical to thank for that: [1]. Cheers! Trey56 01:18, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Recruits or Civilians?

Do the Tire, Stop Sign and Cinder Block count as part of Strong Bad's army, seeing as they're supposed to be Pseudocharacters, like the Painting of a Guy with a Big Knife and Frank Bennedetto? Or were they just civilians caught up in the fighting? – The Chort 14:27, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Fine, since no one's answering me, I'll assume that they were civilians since they do not wear uniform or attack anyone. It probably isn't worth adding to the article, since there's nowhere to put it anyway. – The Chort 20:28, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Tongue in cheek?

Is it me, or do we get a little too in-universe. Lines like "It is a bitter irony that Homestar's urge to win was what defeated him." and "Were it not for this error, Strong Bad may never have found out about the planned attack" strike me as odd and out of place. I just think that we are taking this too seriously. Coming from me, the guy who lives and breathes H*R, this is shocking. I just feel that there is some tongue-in-cheek type humor here. Can anyone help me? This article seems different somehow, but I'm at a loss to describe it.--Jellote wuz here 01:04, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Battle Preparation??

Guys, I have a serious problem with that one sentence— "enabling him and Strong Mad to prepare for the invasion by wondering how to play badminton, or whether there exists a 'goodminton'." That's ridiculous. How, in any way, does wondering how to play a game count as preparing for an invasion, even in the H*R universe? My guess is that Strong Bad just didn't care what Homestar was planning, and was getting ready to play a nice game of badminton with Strong Mad when the Homestarmy showed up. I'm pretty sure his game had nothing to do with the impending attack. Can this be changed to something that makes a lot more sense? Lira (talk) 04:04, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

The battle was intentionally ridiculous, and this page is intentionally hilarious. I see no problem with the artistic license of saying exactly what it says. Also, sometimes "prepared for X by doing Y" is used to mean "Y is what they were doing as X approached". Really It's hilarious, and we have so little humor on the wiki, i'd leave it as is. — Defender1031*Talk 20:23, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
