glad someone else mentioned The State... that, along with Kids In The Hall, Upright Citizens Brigade, animator Don Hertzfeldt and Homestar Runner consitute what my friends and i call "what-the-fark?" humor, which pretty much originated with monty python. it's comedy that, whether you found it funny or not, usually leaves you saying, "what the fark was that about?" when it's over. just absurdity without any real point or redeeming social value, which is probably the MOST subjective type of humor. people think it's easy to be random and funny, but there is a certain underlying genius to it when done well that some people just manage to capture perfectly.

PS - any fans of homestar should do themselves a favor and check out don hertzfeldt's "Rejected" is quite possibly the funniest thing i've have ever been subjected to.

To those who are saying things like 'Homestar is funny to those in the know' or 'it's an acquired taste' I say: You're giving Homestar way too much credit. The reason it's funny to you is because you're probably not that bright and you probably also find Bob Saget funny. Just a thought.

Dammit, AbbyNormal, I'm considering it your fault I'm downloading stuff instead of working on my programming project. :-)

All part of my fiendish plan! If I've got coders block, then no one else shall code either!!! Bwha haa haa!

Now, excuse me, but I got two hundred and forty dollars worth of pudding to attend to...

Aw yeah!

To see the strongbad menu, play the homestar talking game and try to make coherent sentences. Stars will appear when you're on the right track.

My biggest complaint about the Homestar stuff is the cacophony you can get by running your mouse down the menu. You'd think it's be easy to put a sound kill if you mouseover a button twice.

HS: Before I drink a tall glass of melonade, I like to eat about a hundred and forty seven flushy puhsh marshmallows.

CG: CUT. You said "flushy puhsh".

HS: I know. Can you believe it?

CG: Yeah. They're called "fluffy puff".

HS: I know. Can you believe if?

Best State skit ever was the one were they were hunting muppets.

I also like Barry and Levon for some strange reason.
"We have $190 worth of pudding... Awww yeah"

Just a thought.

Maybe thinking isn't for you.

Awesome! Several of my favorite things together in one article: Homestar Runner, Of Montreal, and Waffle House. Truly, a veritable trinity of Southern greatness.

"Is your refrigerator running?"

I nearly pissed myself the first time I heard that one from Strong Mad.

This is the greatest day of my life! I've finally found out what he says! I always just thought it was "Ee yo refrideratdaflatybody!"

This isn't a joke. That's the most logical thing I cuold decode. I've just gotten a whole new outlook on Strong Mad.

I only like the Strong Bad emails...I dont know about the rest of yall...

I think they should try making a small cartoon off the 20X6 idea. That'd be cool. And the idea of Easter Eggs in those e-mails are great. I even got to see Strongbad's tape of NES endings from one of those e-mails.

I don't consider myself a fanboy of Homestar Runner, but I do find the site pretty amusing for the most part. It's definately an acquired taste. It's something you have to keep coming back to and it grows on you. I was lucky and when I first found the site, "Guitar" was the Strong Bad email that week. That little skit alone got me and about 10 of my friends / co-workers hooked.

Is it 100% laugh-out-loud funny? Of course not... but it's better than the majority of the self-important "comedy" that's out there on the web.
