'''"How do you type with boxing gloves on?"''' and its variants are questions that [[Strong Bad]] is asked on a regular basis in his [[Strong Bad Email|emails]]. [[The Brothers Chaps]] obviously must be asked it so often that they have made it a running gag.

'''"How do you type with boxing gloves on?"''' and its variants are questions that [[Strong Bad]] is asked on a regular basis in his [[Strong Bad Email|emails]]. [[The Brothers Chaps]] obviously must be asked it so often that they made it a running gag.
Strong Bad hates this question, and it is often [[DELETED]]. [[Old-Timey Strong Bad]] is apparently frequently asked the similar question, "How do you manage the [[Supra Modern Telegram|telegramophone]] whilst wearing gentleman's sport gloves?" Strong Bad parodies this question in the [[Fan Costume Commentary]] and the email [[vacation]]. In the DVD commentary for the email [[video games]], The Brothers Chaps say that they might come up with a way to answer this question someday. However, in February 2006, they also included this question as one of five topics which will likely [[Flashforward 2006 Seattle - 28 Feb 2006#Pre-animation Process - 4:05 p.m.|never be addressed in a Strong Bad Email]].

Strong Bad himself starts to ask this question when he's forced to type for the first time in an [[Easter egg]] in [[Hremail 7]]. [[The Cheat]] cuts him off with some "smart thinking", suggesting that he is responsible for coming up with Strong Bad's mysterious typing method.

On a related note, in the email [[impression]] on Strong Bad's tape recording, [[Strong Sad]] tells Strong Bad to stop flicking his ear, but Strong Sad doesn't have any visible ears, nor does Strong Bad have visible fingers with which to flick someone's ear. Additionally, Strong Bad seems capable of typing not only with his boxing gloves, but with any part of his body he wishes. In [[sisters]] he types "head—hit—keyboard" by striking the keyboard with his head, and in [[funny]] he types "WOAH!! I CAN TYPE WITH ONE FOOT!" by hitting the keyboard with his foot. In [[bottom 10]], he even typed when his keyboard was covered in [[puking|vomit]], and in [[tape-leg]], he typed with one hand while removing tape from his shoe. Likewise, in [[crying]], he typed a complete sentence, with punctuation and spelling, with one hand, while holding up a drawing of [[Li'l Brudder]] with the other.

From what little that has been seen, it seems Strong Bad merely presses his gloved hands upon the keyboard just as any typist would, and the appropriate keys are pressed and depressed without interference.

Oddly enough, in [[dullard]] Strong Bad types with his thumbs facing up, as if he were touching the keys with the bottoms of his fists.

At one point, in the email [[fingers]], he tried prosthetic fingers made of various items such as [[prawn]], action figures, etc. Their effect on his typing skills, though, was disastrous. However, in [[morning routine]] he was able to type successfully with a [[Potate]] bag covering his right hand.

A similar question that gets asked often is how [[Homestar Runner]], [[Marzipan]], [[The King of Town]], and [[Homsar]], among other characters, are able to pick things up [[Lack of Visible Arms|without having any arms]].
