[edit] Today's solid jumble

Image:noarmssb.PNG - I think that Strong Bad has no arms in the safari adventure. Your views? --Dinoshaur 19:48, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I am curious as to why you posted this here. And I definitely see his arms quite obviously in the picture. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 19:50, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Seriously? I only see his fists. Nope, I don't see an arm there at all. --Dinoshaur 19:52, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I agree with Dinoshaur. Shouldn't you be able to see where his arm is attached to his body? I only see his gloves.

I agree too, actually. It looks really awkward. --DorianGray

This is the same thing as in Sick Day, when he reaches for the tissue. SaltyTalk! 05:06, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] My Favorite Part

My favorite part was when Bubs said that you gotta get the rings inside the bottle. I cracked up!

Uh, same here. 07:04, 10 Feb 2005 (MST)

[edit] More Mascots

I they should've featured a cinderblock mascot i.e. Cindy the Cinderblock? -

[edit] Chinese Food & Ryan S.

If you've ever had to share a refrigerator with co-workers, the "Ryan S." joke should be obvious. Dunno why I didn't see it before! -- tomstiff 15:06, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Ya confused me there, but... I get it now, because my mom came in just now complaining she should start writing her name on her food containers, so yah. That is funny. --Ookelaylay 16:05, 1 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] Raffi (DECLINED)

Strong Bad's reading of the name as 'Rafi' might be an obscure reference to a Canadian children's entertainer, Raffi.

  • Moved in here because it's a 'might be'. EDY-innit 16:33, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • No, i'm sorry. The correct answer, was Declined. EDY-innit 16:46, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Weak Decline. I'm not that worked-up about this one. He would probably have typed Raffi if he meant to refer to Raffi. -- tomstiff 16:53, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • decline Don't like the "might be" (never do) but this one at least is plausible. Donny vs Universe
  • "Might be" and "obscure" don't work for me, sorry. Although it has a small likeliness, I doubt it. Decline. -- SBEmail22
  • Accept because seriously I gotta accept one of these things, right? Dasrik 02:19, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Dee-clined. Doesn't seem like any sort of referance to Raffi. It seems like too big of a stretch. --SaikoRoxi 10:55 AM, 21 May 2005
  • Accept! Of course! Why not? --thatkidsam 00:29, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] EWW! Trogdor's Bowels! (DECLINED)

Roller coasters don't usually have circular loops on them like the Bowels of Trogdor, because the G-forces involved, indeed, usually cause people to pass out. No one usually catches fire, though.

  • Decleated! I mean, Da Cheated! I mean Del Taco! Actually, I've ridden on a roller coaster type thing (called "The Loop") in which the only track was a circle (Shaped like this > O). But, we unfortunately didn't catch fire. *Sigh.* Cheatachu72
  • Decline I saw on once called the ring of fire. No one passed out. --AnarchyBalsac
  • Second: Revise, Decline...oVG2?: Talk to my man with the isometric formula and the Roller Coaster Tycoon! (Yes, Shockwave, a coaster in one of them Six Flaggie parks, has TWO loops.) -MK and/or BurnBox 04:01, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline Though most loops nowadays are tear-shaped, there are some roller coasters with circular loops. The intensity of the ride boasts a more thrilling coaster. The only real concern with circular loops is that there's a greater chance of riders falling out at the top, but that can be avoided if proper safety measures are taken. - Song from 60s 07:26, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline These exist, I think. «Rob» 10:16, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Declined I've been on roller coasters like that so they do exist. The Pardack
  • Decline. I first rode on a looping rolly-coaster in 1977. -- tomstiff 13:55, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Declone If the info is wrong, then the fact isn't a fact. Donny vs Universe
  • I'll decline YOUR fun fact, my lord! I've been waiting all day to use that one. --Upset_Your_Balance 03:49, 22 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Fireball (DECLINED)

The Bowels of Trogdor might be a reference to the now obsolete ride, Fireball, at Morey's Piers in Wildwood, NJ.

  • Moved in here because it's a 'might be'. EDY-innit 16:33, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. Be bold: delete crappy facts outright! -- tomstiff 16:42, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I speculate that this fun fact might be declined... EDY-innit 16:46, 19 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline though there was a roller coaster like that in Wildwood there are other 'circle coasters' out there The Pardack
  • Decline No no no. There are rides like this all over. Donny vs Universe
  • Decline - Strikes me as speculation and that usually doesn't make a good Fun Fact. --Shadow Hog 03:02, 21 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Freaky D'clined - Nope. Sorry. -- SaikoRoxi 11:02 AM, May 21, 2005

[edit] Will The Real Ryan S. Please Stand Up? (Both Accepted)

(A)The "Ryan S." on the box of General Tso's chicken is a reference to Ryan Shoulders from the TV show Survivor: Pearl Islands (airing in late 2003). In episode 2, Ryan S. goes to pick up a message (aka "treemail" on the show). While picking it up, he says, "The treemail, the treemail, wha wha the treemail," a play on the opening to techno.

(B)The "Ryan S." on the box of General Tso's chicken is a reference to Ryan Sterritt, a friend of the Brothers Chaps who has helped with the website in the past.

  • I'd written the latter one, which I think is a more feasible connection than the former. Accept that one, but Neutral on the former; could be either way, really. --Shadow Hog 15:46, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Meeehh When there are two likely answers, hang them both. Donny vs Universe
  • Double Accept I think both of them could be references that are correct. I'd put it like one fact, then the double asterisk, and the other fact, ya know? user: lappy 486
    • Second. It should be noted that, on Survivor, the guy is actually referred to as "Ryan S.", to differentiate from "Ryan O." So both are very very plausible.--rsl12 11:01, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second. I know I don't typically vote to accept "could-be" facts, but both of these do appear to be quite plausible based on the circumstances. --Beatfox 19:52, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second.Why did this get STUFFed? AtionSong11:33, 30 Apr 2005
    • Seconded with a capital S --djm1791 06:34, 6 May 2005 (UTC)
      • Third --Da Borg
  • Decline the former, accept the latter. The second one seems rather tenuous. --Andorra409 22:36, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Wait, you accept the "tenuous" one and decline the other? {is confused} --Jay 00:25, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
      • Latter refers to the one at the end. Hes accepting the second one. Donny vs Universe
        • Right. So he's accepting the second one, but he's also saying that it's tenuous. --Jay (Talk) 04:09, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
          • Probably just means that it's something of a weak Accept, but an Accept nonetheless. --Shadow Hog 04:27, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
            • Sorry for the confusion, I meant to accept the first, and weak accept the second. I don't know why I typed Decline. --Andorra409 00:19, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline A, Accept B --Jay 00:25, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Move A, Decline B.' That first one should go on the techno page, if it's not already there. The other one is irrelevant. --ISlayedTheKerrek 21:17, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • Second The Ryan S. on Survivor is a good refrence (TBC could easily watch survivor), but is a dircet refrence to techno, not theme park, move it. Also, accept the second as it could be just as good and just as likely.
    • Given that there's DEFINITELY a "Ryan S." on General Tso's Chicken and that it's not terribly likely to just be some random name they came up with, I'd say there's relevance enough. --Shadow Hog 04:27, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept Both -- Joshua
  • Decline Both -- I think that whenever there is this much debate over either option, both should be scrapped. I mean, if it is not clear to a majority, why would it be a reference by the brothers? Tony Stony 01:43, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept Both -- They're both reasonable enough to mention. As a big fan of Survivor, I'd love to accept A and decline B, but I must say that B seems a bit more likely, given that A is a connection that few people would make (Ryan S. appeared on the show a total of three times), whereas B would at least be noticed by the "Ryan S." in question. Who knows for sure... but it must be a reference to something, so we should provide some hypothetical explanation. - Dingell

[edit] Re: Will The Real Ryan S. Please Stand Up?

Comment Didn't TBC just say themselves in the commentary it's (B)? --Ookelaylay 16:07, 1 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Yes. The RWR has been modified accordingly. -- tomstiff 16:57, 1 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Connections

I go to school with the person who wrote this email. Pretty cool huh? --Martin925 04:50, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Teen Girl Squad Voice

Okay, an anonymous user added this fact to death metal, and it was later reverted there because it had occurred here as well, so now I added it and it was again reverted:

  • This is the first time Strong Bad uses his Teen Girl Squad voice outside a TGS cartoon.

So tell me, then, which cartoon or Strong Bad Email is the first one in which SB uses a TGS voice outside of a TGS cartoon? — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 18:57, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Does comic count? --DorianGray
theme park. —BazookaJoe 19:11, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
This *is* theme park. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 20:33, 20 January 2006 (UTC) :P
And no, comic doesn't count because all of the TGS voices were used within the TGS toon. The point of the Fun Fact was that SB used his TGS voice completely outside the TGS universe. I believe theme park is the first time he did it, and death metal is the second. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 20:37, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
What? Oh. I thought this was Talk:death metal. I don't think it's an important enough remark, though I am somewhat neutral, so go ahead and STUFF it. If necessary. —AutopilotJoe 20:39, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Hi Lois

I can't believe I'm the only one that noticed this. In the commentary when Matt is talking about the Scorpion and the prerecorded warnings and stuff before you start riding, he says "Hi Lois". Does anyone else think this may be a reference to the comic Hi and Lois? --Kiwi 12:19, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm curious why he'd be referencing a newspaper comic strip in the commentary. It seems a stretch. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 16:33, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
I thought about this later, and it probably depends on the tone in which he said it. If he was just spouting off random stuff, then maybe, but did it sound like he was saying "hi" to someone named Lois? I don't have the DVD, I can't check. --Kiwi 23:27, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Peter Puck is not Poppy the Tire

I think we need to remove the Peter Puck reference. To be honest, it's most likely a coincidence. I mean, the only real similarity is the circular shape and mouth in the middle. But to be honest, how do you make a NON-circular tire mascot? Bluebry 20:26, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

I agree. Most mascots would appear portrayed as a cartoon character. I think this is just a coincidence also. --TheCoolBot 20:29, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
Ditto. What bluebry said makes sense.--Kanjiro talk 20:33, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] the bowels of trogdor

wouldn't that be a reference to a ride in the iowa state fair, the ring of fire? it does the same continuous loop thing. Slipknot6477 22:07, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

No, we have that where i live too. I am nowhere near Iowa, at that. What's more, look at this. The Goblin!! 22:20, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] The Jungle Cruise pistol shots.

I think it should be noted that the firing of the pistol aboard the jungle cruise at Disney parks is to frighten attacking hippos, not headhunters. Nor is there at any point a rock about to fall on the boats.— Bassbone (TALK Strong Mad Has a Posse CONT) 10:47, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Also, several other points. Firstly, it was not a pistol but a rifle that was used to ward off the attacking hippos, and at least in the case of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Florida, they no longer fire at the animals since the opening of Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Secondly, they are referred to as Jungle Skippers, not tour guides (Disney tour guides wore these super hot skirt and argyle sock costumes and carried around riding crops...super hot.) This is coming from a former Jungle Skipper.

[edit] Mascot Dialogue

I'm pretty sure that after Coach Z's final line in the sequence, Homsar and Homestar continue the mascots' running topic of "chafing", as Homsar says "It's time for chafeball" with Homestar answering with "chafeball already?". Not sure if anyone picked this mistake up in the article, but the article currently says "tasteball". I could just edit it, but I want to get at least some general approval before doing so.

Nah, it's "tasteball". The Ts are right up in there. --DorianGray 04:12, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
Definitely tasteball. OptimisticFool 05:55, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
tasteball already? — Defender1031*Talk 14:16, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
I just listened to it again with the sound way up. I stand corrected; you guys are right.

[edit] Longest "After The Paper Dialog"?

I was just wondering, the process doesn't even come close to the run time of the after-the-paper dialog. Might we want to stick this fact into the trivia? ColdReactive


Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt the King of Town: A. Recommended not even allowed at the theme park B. To short to even ride? I think so anyways The McArby! 22:45, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Actually, it says: "*please don't bring your grandmother." And, at a comparison, SB and the Kot are about the same height. StrongAwesome 23:14, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] BTTF reference?

I'm thinking the index cards/milk carton model of the park with the "not to scale" overlay graphic might be a reference to the Back to the Future movies, where such a setup appears twice (once in the first movie and once in the third). I'm not sure this has occurred to anyone else, given the lack of discussion on it and the fact that it isn't in the article. (Does that make it too obscure?) Can I get a consensus? Avalyn 06:21, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

[edit] chafe

Isn't "chafe" normally pronounced "chaff"? Wolf O'Donnel 06:13, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
