Yeah, it really does look and sound authentic. Anybody have any details?

I don't know, I just found it. I agree, it does look real though.
I bet TBC have so much cool stuff that we have never seen that they may think no one would like. I wish we could have an 'inside man' to get us all the stuff :bubs:

Oh. Details:

http://e2tl.playvectrex.com/mirror/egg.html

Basically this toon is an easter egg in the Macromedia (the makers of Flash) program Central. It looks like Macromedia commissioned TBC to create it, or maybe the developers just asked nicely and stuck it in there.

Interesting. This should probably be Wiki'd. But it needs a good title first, 'cause we don't want a page called "Homestar twinkie phone".

I've seen that before! I though it was a cartoon they took off the site. It's funny though. Wish I could here it again but I don't have my headphones with me.

It could probably be labeled as "Homestar's Heaven" or "Strong Bad's Hell".

Either one, weally. They both fit!

I knew of this but I think we should call it "Heaven or Hell?"

No, that gives away the ending. I think maybe "Where the Crap Are We?", or "Maybe This is Heaven."

TNG, good work on the page and transcript. I decided to move the page to Where the Crap are We? (lower case 'are'), AP style and whatnot. You may want to change the link on your userpage, since I baleeted the redirect. Yes, I am beyond anal. No, I will not see your friend'd sister's psychiatrist. Er, good jorb.

I was wondering whether I should've capitalized "are" or not.

Actually, now that I think about it, maybe it is supposed to be capitalized. Erg. I'll look it up later.

I added the Easter Egg transcript already...as a guest. Man. No credit for me now. :(

I was thinking of registering, and then I finally did, AFTER I edited the page.

This is a political cartoon, if you can pick up on it.
Note the references to Massachusetts and Senator pencil face. (Kerry has a skinny face.)

edit: I might be wrong, but it sure seems like it.

Um, anyone know where the "About Macromedia Central..." part is? I clicked help, but I couldn't find the rest.

Maybe.. but what message are they delivering? I don't get any sort of punchline.

Did you actually download and install Central, or have you just been surfing the website? I think you have to click "help" WITHIN the Central application. I haven't downloaded Central myself.. now that I've seen the easter egg, I don't see the need to get the app.

I doubt that it's a political cartoon. It seems rather unlike TBC to do something like that. Besides, we don't even know for sure when the cartoon was made.

Wow! Macromedia's Central is amazing! But, I don't see how this 'toon has to do with it. I can't download the 'toon as an application ("XML information missing" is what it says).

Maybe you should read the instructions?
Quote:
[list=1][*]Download Central
[*]Go to "Help" in the menu bar, then click "About Macromedia Central..."
[*]Ctrl + Click the "C" logo.
[*]Type "sbemail" in the text box that pops up, then press enter.
