Okay, now that was really really odd. I go to make this page, and someone's already added stuff. But when I try to link from the Redballoons page, only the image shows up. So...yeah. We're making the Wiki tremendously confused. --Sugarfiend06 16:23, 25 June 2008 (PDT)

sorry, I think that might have been my bad. I had the wrong link posted on the Redballoons page, so clicking on it led to a different wrong page. We're good now though. But hey, while I'm here: is it possible that the next clue (if there is one, since something's goin down Monday night) could be like an old clue? Cause this note has some letters that have blood stains on them, but that kind of code was already used. ? --Good evening 19:32 25 June 2008 (EST)

  • Well, if the Ha Ha Ha Times is any indication, the Joker never uses the same coding system twice. --AutoDecept 16:36, 25 June 2008 (MST)

Kidding. Actually, everything I just said was wrong. Awesome. --Good evening 19:35 25 June 2008 (EST)

  • I'm still trying to determine the precise path to getting Verdi. Need a good description of tat connection. Pagliacci and composer Giuseppe Verdi is nice and all, but... can haz accurate steps to the solve? --Thebruce 17:04, 25 June 2008 (MST)
  • I have no idea how exactly they got Verdi, but we knew since yesterday that the bistro answering machine password was 5 digits long, so the opera hint probably led to a search for five-letter words related to opera, thus turning up Verdi's name. At least it sounds plausible to me. --AutoDecept 17:18, 25 June 2008 (MST)
  • Sounds plausible to me too. It's kind of like how we got Glenn Barhyte's password. :P Get enough people and with enough time, someone will come upon it. Sugarfiend06 17:26, 25 June 2008 (PDT)
  • I think I can offer up a bit of a theory as to how the connection to Verdi was made. From his article on Wikipedia:

"Verdi's last opera, Falstaff, whose libretto was also by Boito, was based on Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor and Victor Hugo's subsequent translation. It was an international success and is one of the supreme comic operas which shows Verdi's genius as a contrapuntist."

In addition, the opera was based on one of Shakespeare's works, & the Joker quotes Romero and Juliet in his message, thus alluding to Shakespeare. For the record, the Joker even disguised himself as Falstaff in one of his comics, though I highly doubt that has any connection to all of this.

But it's all still just a theory I came up with while goofing off at work, so I don't exactly know how much merit it has. =P SlyDante 13:43, 26 June 2008 (EST)
