"Well, I'll just, uh, put these pants on..."

Homestar Runner's pants are a notable anomaly, as the stylized design of his character makes it unclear as to whether he’s wearing skintight pants with matching shoes or has "blue soles glued to the bottoms of [his] feet", as Strong Bad has claimed. The Brothers Chaps keep this running gag going by keeping references to it ambiguous.
