[edit] I have a question.

I just added something to this entry, (my first entry ever! YAY!) and I then set up an account with a username and all, and I realized that it didn't track my identity once I created the account (ie: my IP address is given credit for the change, while my user account "kokoloko" isn't.) Is there any way to fix this? (Sorry about how discombobulated this message is, I am extremely tired :) )

No. Edits made by IPs are forever logged as edits made by IPs; else I'd have taken credit for starting Wikipedia:Clockwork Knight 2 a long while ago back at, well, Wikipedia.

[edit] Fun Facts

I don't know if this is very fun, but in the B. Ryan Holmes easter egg, the phone number is given as 555-XYLM. This is probably a reference to 'xylem', which is a part of a plant. So it'd make sense given the easter egg being about trees. -- 02:40, 26 Feb 2005 (MST) (I really need to sign up on the hrwiki some time.)

Firebird, how is my funfact a "may be" and not definate?---erson 00:47, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

We're not for sure if it's refering to autobiography. A definate fun fact would be, say, Strong Bad saying the exact same phrase that he did in a certain email. →FireBird

[edit] Collections Agency

Bubs' collections agency letter is retaliation for Strong Bad's collections agency prank in lackey.

I just put that up! It works! What's the deal?! Stop removing it!-- TaranchulaVamp15 14:18 13 July 2005 (CST)

That's just speculation; it could just be that Strong Bad bought lots of stuff from Bubs' stand and forgot to pay for it. Put it in STUFF if you disagree with its removal. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 19:25, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] Pizzle the Nizzle (Declined)

The line "positate the negative" refers to the song Accentuate the Positive, by Johnny Mercer.

  • Decline. Both the Johnny Mercer song and strongbad's line refer to evangelical preaching in general. --rsl12 08:41, 30 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Comment. Evangelical preaching? Huh? -- tomstiff 17:51, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Actually, no. Decline. Dasrik 02:18, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Accept. I know I'm prolly in the minority here, but it's what I thought of when I heard the line for the first time. -- tomstiff 17:51, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. It's just a parody of motivational-speech lingo. --Beatfox 19:38, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Tappity Tappity (Declined)

When Strong Bad dismisses the email's text to make room for his new text, as he does often, it makes the standard typing sound effects instead of the hard "enter" hitting sound.

  • Although it was deleted as "not fun", I'm not too sure that it deserves it. Your opinions? --Jay 00:03, 5 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Decline. Strong Bad often clears the screen by just typing more, analogous to a 'soft return' onto the next page. -- The Real Zajac 14:39, 6 Feb 2005 (PST)
  • Decline. Who cares? Fun facts are supposed to be, well, FUN. They're not about picking out every insignifcant detail. Donny vs Universe
  • Accept Yeah its a good fun fact? all ya'lls are too picky Extremejon
  • Accept. Seems to me like a good fact. It's definitely a glitch if TBC usually use the 'enter' noise. →evin290 17:20, 12 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • You know Evin290, TBC mock fans who use logic like that (Homestar does NOT have a stupid uncle egg). Donny vs Universe
      • Are you taking a H*R line way too seriously in order to convince people not to take a H*R way too seriously...? --Jay 10:58, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)
        • Comment. I'm just saying that it's probably worth having because it's out of the norm. →evin290 20:19, 16 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Decline! On most of my computers I use, it's usually the SPACE BAR that sounds different, not the return/enter key. --Aussie Evil 15:28, 3 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Accept On my computer, both sound different. Anyway, I think its good enough to be in there. -acekirby13
  • Decline, If we acepted this than we'd have to accept all the other fun facts that mentioned a slight, often unimportant, difference. --flashstorm 15:26, 14 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Comment That's a good point. Too bad you didn't sign your post. acekirby13
    • Did now --flashstorm 15:26, 14 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Second. At best, this should be called a goof. However, people who enjoy reading goofs would probably scorn this level of pickiness (maybe. I don't care for what people call goofs here personally...)--rsl12 21:15, 31 Mar 2005 (MST)
      • I've seen "Goofs" around here a LOT worse than this. --Jay 03:21, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Second. Too insignificant. --Beatfox 19:35, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept! Good enough for me. Kvb 03:53, 6 Apr 2005 (MDT)

[edit] Prior Arrest

When Strong Bad mentions having to do community service for a prior arrest, it is likely a reference to the Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon.

[edit] Mr. Strong vs. Mr. Bad

Although Strong Bad, Strong Mad and Strong Sad are brothers, and presumably share the family name "Strong" (aka Asian practice), the snailmail is addressed to "Mr. Bad". While this clearly makes the adressee unambiguous, it is an incorrect form of address.

[edit] Please to be...

On the early Simpsons episode, "Lisa's Pony", when Homer acts like he won the lottery by covering up the ticket with his thumb, Apu says "Please to be removing your thumb". Is it possible that Janus' poorly worded English was a reference to this episode? Do we know if Janus' email was real, or if TBC doctored a phony email, to include a Simpsons reference? ( --Duke33 17:55, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say probably not. — It's dot com 09:18, 29 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Yeah. Much as I like The Simpsons, I'm pretty sure I heard "Please to be" somewhere else before.--Jnelson09 00:23, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Fun fact

The "prior arrest" Strong Bad refers to is most likely a reference to Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon.--Jnelson09 00:22, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! EPIC FAIL! While it's true that SB was arrested in Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon, he was put IN JAIL! I thought the TITLE was obvious ENOUGH! Nowhere IN that toon does SB get sentenced to community service! Get rid o' that useless, wrong, useless, ridiculous, and USELESS reference RIGHT AWAY! but, a buttdanceNeox ONION BUBS!YOU WILL RESPECT MAH AUTHORI-TAH!!! 21:09, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Hey just wondering, recently (actually not so recently), The Late Show with David Letterman had a joke similar to the Piemonade joke. Could this be linked or just a coincidence? I'm not too sure myself, just asking. A to the M: Fallen Star hr.png 07:17, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

If you were to reference something with a possible similarity, you'd need more detail, such as which episode, what the similar joke was, and why it's a reference. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:18, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Polish Email

Was the Polish email from Janus real, or did TBC make it up? Because I saw on some other page here at the wiki that the only email TBC made up was mile - since I'm not sure if this would count or not, that's why I'm asking. It seems like it would be made up, since one of the inside references says that Janus is a character from Chrono Trigger - although now that I think about it, they might have done that as a reference to the email sender, before they actually introduced it. Either way, I'm confusing myself with my strangely worded question. Is it real, or is it fake? CompGrl323 (talk · edits) 02:55, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

We have no reason to believe that it's fake (in fact, as you said, TBC said they don't make up emails). Janus is a real name, and not that unpopular in Eastern Europe, as far as I know. TBC probably made Chrono Trigger references in the sbemail because the sender's name was Janus. :-) Loafing 03:00, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Right, that's what I was thinking. xD Thanks for clearing that up. CompGrl323 (talk · edits) 21:43, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Flags or Frags?

When Homestar says "soo many 'fwags'" is it possible his speech impediment is referring to flags? Because if so, it may refer to Halo 2's online mode, in which one of the popular modes of gameplay is Capture the Flag.

If he's trying to say flags, there's a million and one games he could be referring to. Capture the Flag or variations of it are very popular among shooters and other games. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:38, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Original Email

I put that the original didn't have the translations. Can someone verify this? StarFox 19:03, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
