Notes

References

  • "Radio Free __" may be in reference to Radio Free Europe, the broadcasting arm of the National Committee for a Free Europe. "Radio Free Europe" is also the name of a song by R.E.M. Radio Free Jersey is the name of Radio KoL DJ Amplitude's show.
  • The intrinsic effect of this item is named after "Shiny Happy People", a song by R.E.M.
  • A Foil is the lightest (and most common) sword used in modern competitive fencing. The other two are the Epee and the Sabre.
  • The saying "Curses, foiled again!" in the item description has more than one possible cultural reference:
  • "Curses, foiled again!" was muttered by the Red Baron after he was thwarted by Snoopy in the 1966 song by The Royal Guardsmen called "Snoopy vs. The Red Baron".
  • "Oh curses, foiled again!" was also the tagline of Snidely Whiplash, the nemesis of Dudley Do-Right in The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.
