This is a quiz on one's knowledge of the Homestar Runner body of work.

Page Title: Smell that purple ink!!

Date: June 27, 2001, or earlier



After taking the quiz, Strong Bad analyzes the results and tells you how you did. In all cases, he sits behind a desk, wearing a white button-down shirt and red tie. On his desk are a microphone, a piece of paper, and a plaque that reads "Prinicpal Strong Bad". Tacked to the wall behind him is a piece of notebook paper ripped from a ringed notebook with "strong bad's diploma from crazy go nuts university." written on it. Below are the details of what he says depending on how many answers you got right.

All ten correct answers

STRONG BAD: Well, you obviously cheated, which means you're my kind of person. Have a cookie.

Easter Eggs

The mouse can be moved over the name plate, microphone and "diploma" in Strong Bad's office to make Strong Bad say a line of dialogue. This cannot be accessed if all ten answers are answered correctly, as the card will obscure the objects.

  • Name plate:
    STRONG BAD: Hey, keep your greasy fingers off that.
  • Microphone:
    STRONG BAD: Hey, don't touch that!
  • Diploma:
    STRONG BAD: Pretty impressive, huh? I bet you're pretty impressed.

Fun Facts


  • Ditto machines were a popular, inexpensive way to make copies of paper documents, frequently used in schools during the 20th century. Copies made from a ditto machine had a distinctive smell (referenced in the page title) and purple ink color.


  • Though illegible normally, the paper on Strong Bad's desk can be read if zoomed in:
Strong Bad isn't so strong after all. If he tried hard, which of the following could he lift?

a. an ounce c. a week
b. a weak d. pepper
  • This is the first mention of cinnamon.
  • This is the first time an index card has appeared.


  • The sign on Strong Bad's desk is misspelled as "Prinicpal Strong Bad". This spelling reappears in CGNU and Teen Girl Squad Issue 8, establishing it as the "correct" spelling for Strong Bad's academic title.
  • The second Dokle cabinet in Theme Song Video used the numeral "2", while the quiz refers to its name with the Roman numeral "II".
  • If you get a perfect score, Strong Bad jogs the papers on the desk wearing his boxing gloves as normal. His hands move down behind the desk, and seconds later, without moving, he is seen wearing oven mitts.


  • Cinnamon is spelled incorrectly as "cinammon" on the recipe card.
  • Manufactured is misspelled as "maufactured" on question number 8.


  • If you really are Strong Bad's kind of person, there's a glitch in the quiz that will allow you to cheat. Simply hold the mouse button down on an answer and it'll tell you if it's right or wrong. Keep holding the mouse button and move your mouse away from the answers before you let go. It won't count it as an answer, so you can pick again. The red X or check mark that appears will remain, however.
  • Very rarely, even without earning a perfect score, Strong Bad will stop in the middle of his line and start saying the "perfect score line".

Inside References

If Homestar drank 18 glasses of melonade, if coach z really had bkbkbkbkbkkbmore than
hjhjhjhjhj b problems, hjhkhjkhjkhs does he have?
  • "You-know-what" is another, rarely used name for whatsit.
