[edit] Easter Egg

I've been wondering for quite a while now. They've made Everybody Knows It and in an Easter egg in this 'toon it shows the Labor Dabor party, no animation, just playing Everybody Knows It. BUT now I'm wondering 2 things: 1. Was it originally a secret song like circles and 2. Why didn't they remove the easter egg? It makes logical sense. --Mr. Talks-a-Lot

Look Bonka, first, yes, this is the source of the song. Secondly, why SHOULD The Brothers Chapstick remove an easter egg. They only have done that once (in lackey). The song is higher quality here, as well. I hope that helps (if not, sorry), --Jellote 16:10, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Strong Bad referencing Lucky? (DECLINED)

In the Schenectady Crispies egg, Strong bad says "I hope I don't get caught!" This could be a reference to Lucky Charms, in which Lucky, the cereal making leprechaun, is constantly avoiding getting caught by the kids who want his cereal.

  • AH! COULD BE! Decline at once! --ISlayedTheKerrek 17:43, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • It's Magically Declined! --Beatfox 19:58, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Hearts! Stars! Declines! -- AtionSong 20:34 11 May 2005
  • They're After Me Lucky Declines! ---the spludge 21:58, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • wow, so many Declines After further review, i'm changing my vote to neutral ---Nighthawk
  • Insert Lucky Charms related Decline pun here. --Upset_Your_Balance 23:05, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • seemed to me like it was just making fun of pretty much any cereal commercial that uses slogans like that, so decline'd. --Tehngion 23:42, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I'm not in the mood to be clever, so... Decline Dasrik 02:55, 12 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Unlike Strong Bad, this DECLINE actually references Lucky Charms Or maybe not. Stilled declined though. Donny vs Universe
  • This Decline is part of a balanced breakfast.--Tony Stony 11:24, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

  • Very Weak Decline. OK ... so, why *doesn't* he want to get caught? -- tomstiff 17:08, 12 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Uh... accept? {is pummeled by angry mobs} DECLINE, I meant DECLINE! Seriously. -- Joshua
  • Comment. Tomstiff has a point... why does Strong Bad say this if its not a reference? --fakename
    • But he still declined it, so what's the point? --ISlayedTheKerrek 03:33, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Decline. The Trix rabbit doesn't want to be caught by the kids; Barney doesn't want to be caught by Fred Flintstone while he's stealing Fred's Fruity Pebbles. So there's at least two other things he could be referencing, if it even is a reference, which I'm not so sure it is. — It's dot com 13:35, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
      • Comment. Agreed. TBC do have a tendency to write silly, random jokes that don't appear to make any sense whatsoever ( and the Stinkoman 20x6 manual are chock full of 'em). It's completely possible that this isn't a reference at all. --Beatfox 19:30, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Decline. Upgrading to full decline. -- tomstiff 15:19, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
    • I dunno why else Strong Bad would be saying "I Hope I don't Get Caught".. I mean, obviously there are many things he could be referencing. Personally to me the Lucky Charms one makes the most sense because that the Trix Rabbit does not want to get caught stealing the cereal, same with Barney. But only Lucky Charms has the spokesperson (i.e. the person of whom the cereal belongs to) trying to not get caught. I am still unsure but I think its a valid fact, though whether it is fun or not remains to be seen. But if he is not paradying seems like a non sequitur...Just a comment --Tony Stonytalk00:43, 14 May 2005 (UTC)(Changed decline vote to Neutral)
    • Yeah, you know what? I am going to be bold here and Accept this. Mainly cause I don't see any other reason for Strong Bad to say this you know? -- Tony Stonytalk
    • This is a general reference to lots of kids' cereal commercials which involve someone trying to steal cereal from kids or kids trying to steal cereal from someone else. Not only is there Lucky, Trix Rabbit and Barney, there is also the Cookie Crook from Cookie Crisp.
  • Comment. OH! Barney as in Barney Rubble! I thought you meant Barney the purple dinosaur...
  • Decline I always thought he said "I hope I don't get caught" because you're supposed to taste the cereal in your esophagus and it could get caught in your esophagus. -Miss Free Country USA

[edit] Edgar from the future

In the email candy product, we learn Strong Bad's Lappy has Edgar's Baby's Daddy installed for the express purpose of filtering Homestar's emails. If he also had this program on the Compy, it could explain why Strong Bad didn't receive his invitation.

[edit] removed duplicate info

I removed "Coach Z's beverage is a Coldson Lite." From the Fun Facts. It's already noted in the transcript. --Stong Bad 23:08, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] KOT quote

Did anyone hear the King say something after Strong Sad made his deleted joke? I hear something, but I can't quite make it out. --TaranchulaVamp15 14:01, 7 Nov 2005 (CST)

[edit] BURGER

Where did the burger come from if it wasn't in the cooler? I dunno. And now, back down the rabbithole I go! {explodes with candy} --Homfrog 19:15, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Cheat the Mighty?

Is the really tall and really short contrast stated by Strong Bad a reference to Freak the Mighty? Just a thought, by --Jellote 15:51, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Misspelling?

With the "misspelling 'woah' as 'whoa'" thing, I'm pretty sure both spellings are generally accepted. Does this really need to be mentioned, as people write these words both ways. If they ever write them. Which they don't. OpenSourceGreg 17:15, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] KOT Real Identity

  • Strong Bad reveals that The King of Town is a self-proclaimed King of Free Country, USA. This may be a reference to James Strang who was one of three major contenders for leadership of the Latter Day Saint movement during the 1844 succession crisis. Rejected by the principal body of Mormonsa in Nauvoo, Illinois, he became the founder and prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Strangite), claiming it to be the sole legitimate continuation of the Church of Christ founded in 1830 by Joseph Smith, Jr.. In this capacity, he served as the crowned "king" of an ecclesiastical monarchy that existed for six years within the U.S. state of Michigan. James Strang also wore a bright red flannel robe topped by a white collar with black speckles.

[edit] Basics?

Apparently in this email Strong Bad mentions that the basics is his favorite email. I read the whole transcript carefully and I couldn't find it. When does he say that's his favorite email? doctorwho295 May 2, 2010

The intro. STRONG BAD: Which e-mail is your favorite? Mine is "the basics". Shang-a-lang-a- {starts reading} — Defender1031*Talk 23:12, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
.....epic fail on my part. Thanks man. doctorwho295

[edit] Reverse Haiku?

It may just be a coincedence (or however you spell that) but Strong Bad's intro appears to be 757, a reverse of the 575 haiku rule.

Which (1) email (3) is (4) your (5) favourite? (7)

Mine (1) is (2) the (3) basics (5)

Shang-a-lang-a (4) Dear (5) Strong (6) Bad (7)

Anyone else agree?

[edit] I Hope I Don't Get Caught

Is that a reference to some old cereal ad? Wolf O'Donnel 06:47, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

I mean, maybe. The idea of a character getting "caught" in cereal ads exists for Lucky Charms, Cookie Crisp, and even Trix from a certain point of view. Which in turn makes it a little bit too vague and too TTATOT for a fun fact. --Jay (Talk) 18:37, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

[edit] what?

Now it’s Sbemail #NO TITLE OBJECT with the navbar saying the same. TMBGLOVER 17:16, 28 October 2022 (UTC)

I tried a null edit and it seems to have fixed the issue. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 18:14, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
