View Full Version : A closer look at Stinky
03/19/2008, 03:06 pm
There's something very interesting about that tattoo on Stinky's arm. Look closely:
Those are norse Futhark runes. Now what do you suppose they spell out when you transliterate (http://members.aol.com/JehanaS/futhark/) them? Exactly.

I don't get it :(

*Sam walks in*
Also, nice find!

As far as that g goes, methinks the reason is in the etymology (http://www.omniglot.com/writing/runic.htm). What with the god Ing being a cooler note to end on than "need/hardship".

oh... the 's' and 'e' are similar :(
coincidentally satang is a popular drink in hell
03/19/2008, 03:28 pm
Well, makes sense if you see that the Devil apparently liked the place. A regular customer!
edit: nice find though

Sounds like Old Stinky fell in love with Satan (who also happens to be young Stinky) and got a Tattoo as a sign of pation. (young) Stinky then tricked him into signing a contract which gave her permission to OWN HIS SOUL!!!! :D

Also, Fantabulous Find!! :)

Haha, when I first read the spoilered translation, I thought it said Banang. That'd be great.
It's interesting that the picture that accompanies it looks like a fish.

Also, I would like to note that the creature above the runes appears to be some sort of fish (it's surrounded by waves, at least). And young Stinky has a very fishy costume.

hmm...well, a "Tang" is also a species of fish (Regal Blue, Yellow). And the fish in his tattoo looks pretty...well...monstrous, so...maybe, another way of calling it a 'Devil Fish'? Satang? :D
...eh, sounds farfetched, I know. It was just a suggestion. ^^;

Wait... Evil fish? Mr. Spatula!
he was probably a minon of the greater evil fish and the biggest evil fishrelated creature i can think of at the moment is stinky, the young one. she can't be old stinky's granddaughter, since he doesn't even have children in the 80s...and getting children and an grownup grandchild in under 30 years is ranging from gross to impossible. so she is either the devil that took over the diner after she got old stinky's soul or something completely different.

Note that (female) Stinky's hair is of the same colour scheme as that fish.

Due to the fact that no Telltale staff are posting here I think some if not all of the comments here are correct!;)
isn't mikew telltale staff?
03/20/2008, 07:16 am
It doesn't say he is.
03/20/2008, 08:00 am
Hi name's in italics :)
(Mike is our other web developer)
which means, he is posting here to confuse us and got the job i wanted.
03/20/2008, 08:10 am
There, I added sweet icons to ease confusion :)
i meant the other confusion...about the threads topic. nice idea with the icons though...no more hiding for telltale employees.

It's little hints like that, (which I never notice) that make a good series!!
I guess Sam and Max are really about to got to Hell in the next Episode!

Sorry for the massive necrothreading but when replaying it in 1680x1050 the other day (new video card, yay!) I noticed this little detail:
A "Relinquish Thy Soul Contract"... sounds like the "another satisfied customer" comment actually refers to Stinky. That would explain why he went to Hell after his death. Now the question becomes what the deal consisted of. I suspect the Cake of the Damned is involved, and that we'll find out more next season.

A other wierd thing. If you scan Superball with the carbon dater in Abe Lincoln must die. It says that he's 41 years old. Season one is in 2007 and Season two is in 2008 so he is 42 now.
So Superball wasn't even born yet when Sam and Max came to the oval office. Strange, isn't it
