[edit] Fun Facts in question

Does the comment "In gimmicks, the blackened stuff on his head looks like hair" belong on this page? It's near the end of the Fun Facts section. --oddtodd 00:54, 20 Nov 2004 (MST)

Technically it was relevant, but it was rather silly, so I removed it. --Upsilon
Great, thanks. I wasn't quite sure whether to remove it or not. --oddtodd 11:32, 27 Nov 2004 (MST)

Should some mention be made in the "Fast Forward" section referring to Prime Time being derived from this email, and later appearing in Decemberween_Sweet_Cuppin'_Cakes? -- random lurker

I moved a fun fact, from Trivia to remarks, because I felt that, "If Strong Bad had a nickel for every e-mail up to now, it would be worth $5.15.", was more of a remark than actual H* trivia. 19:06, 13 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] SB's keyboard

It might be worth mentioning that changing the keyboard layout to "US International" makes it pretty easy to put an umlaut over a vowel (while still using a normal U.S./Canada layout) by pressing " + a vowel, so " + u = ü. That must be what Strong Bad uses.... :P --Ǖħ¡ βøв 01:07, 17 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] 'stache

Is that what the KOT says? I always thought it was 'stash'. As in, my, um, stash of, um, hair. No? Ok. I'll leave quietly. -- 23:21, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I think its 'stache, because Strong Bad wants to cut his moustache. The KOT is just abreviating the word. — talk Bubsty edits 20:40, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Possible mistake

Did anyone else notice that Strong Mad's eyebrows magically grew back in the "dancing box" thing?--Ace00899 21:17, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

I always thought they were still there, just out of frame. — It's dot com 21:33, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Star Wars intro

Dorian, to respond to your inquiry: when Strong Bad says "D- D- D- Dear Strong Bad"... the three short beats followed by the long beat are the same as the first four notes in the main Star Wars theme. Sort of. It was a seemingly random inclusion into the email which can support that theory. I was thinking about STUFFing it (something I have never done before :) ) but I thought i'd explain and mention it in the talk page to see what other ppl thought (Esp. the music experts here :)). I am iffy about the fun fact. --Stux 04:33, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

I dont think its a star wars referance. — talk Bubsty edits 04:39, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I totally figured it out after that. He took it to my talk page. I'm pretty sure it's not a reference, though. --DorianGray

[edit] About a Fact:

"There are no words in the English language that begin with "ghe" that fit the context of what Strong Bad is typing when he is interrupted."

While this may be true, could it also possibly be an inadervant typo, as if Strong Bad was surprised by Strong Mad's sudden arrival while saying "MAKE IT DANCE, MAKE IT PRANCE!!!"

Ghetto starts with "ghe" - James Dean

  • But that doesn't fit the context. "I ghetto?" --Jay (Talk) 07:34, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] My LIGHT PEN

Should the light pen be considered a running gag now since it's made 3 or 4 appearances? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 04:41, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

It's mentioned here Strong Bad's Technology#Other as one of Strong Bad's computer thingies. You could add more appearances to that entry if you like. Loafing 04:47, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Eh Greg?

Is it just me, but when SB draws Eh Steve, he says Eh Fred instead of Eh Greg. Zerlock1124

[edit] When does Strong Bad EVER say that it's an electric guitar?

"When Strong Bad draws the guitar in front of Strong Mad's picture, he twice comments that it is an electric guitar, but since it has four strings, it is more likely a bass guitar. "

I'm pretty sure he doesn't state it is electric, and since it's not a "real" guitar, he probably just got lazy and only drew four strings.

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] Hogwarts school of barbzerdry

"Strong Bad's School of Barbzerdry" is a reference to the "Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" from the Harry Potter series.

[edit] Wild Thing

Hendrix didn't perform Wild Thing at Woodstock, he performed it at the Monterey Pop Festival, and he didn't use his teeth. However, he did use his teeth at Woodstock, but he never played Wild Thing throughout his set.-- 01:40, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Proper

I'm surprised there hasn't been a mention of Strong Bad's use of "Proper" on the Hammer Pants drawing. It was, after all, an exclamation MC Hammer was known for, probably most famously in this Pepsi commercial at about 0:50. Think it's worth a mention? kyojikasshu 17:32, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes. — It's dot com 22:43, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
I've added the reference, although I'm divided on whether or not I should include the YouTube link in the article itself. kyojikasshu 18:40, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Trivial Spelling

Does Strong Bad say Strong Mad is shredding some "hot licks" or "hott lixx" with his teeth? The Knights Who Say Ni 16:13, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

It's hott lixx. See email guitar where hott lixx was brought up before. — Ngamer01 18:39, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
as a matter of fact, email guitar is why i asked the question. The Knights Who Say Ni 18:42, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
I can see the listing on hott lixx under guitar#Explanations is a bit confusing, but think about it like this. Which sounds like something Strong Bad would say: Hot licks or hott lixx? Other than that, I got nothing since this hott lixx hasn't happened a third time to get inside reference status. — Ngamer01 18:19, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

[edit] There are no words

"There are no words in the English language that begin with "ghe" that fit the context of what Strong Bad is typing when he is interrupted."

Off the top top of my head, I can think of another example of this, and while I can't say for sure, I think there are more. Is this not a running gag at this point? -- (User:Neumannz (talk) in disguise) 21:17, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
