  • Prior to August 16, 2011, it could be autosold for 150 meat. The change was due to a combination of previously being mandatory for The Arid, Extra-Dry Desert quest and being prohibitively difficult to afford extra cans while in a Way of the Surprising Fist run.


  • Lead-based paints, despite improved performance, were discovered to be extremely toxic, and one myth is that the most common cause of poisoning was eating leaded paint chips. The most common way children were exposed to lead was probably from ingestion of lead dust dislodged from deteriorated paint or during remodeling.
  • "Wall Candy" is a reference to the October 18, 1999 Penny Arcade comic, which is in itself a reference to a Chris Farley quote from the movie Tommy Boy.
  • The correlation between black paint and red doors refers to the song Paint It, Black by The Rolling Stones: "I see a red door and I want it painted black" and "I see my red door I must have it painted black."
