"Maximize your cloits and dloits with the ease of a thousandaire!"

In many Homestar Runner cartoons, several characters, most often Strong Bad, have been shown to have a habit of making up names of body parts that don't exist. Some of these names have been made by adding the stereotypical Latin suffix -us at the end.

Appearances

  • Tis True, Pom Pom, Tis True — Strong Bad complains about his broken "clavicus majorus". This name is based on the clavicle, a bone also known as the "collarbone" that is found in the shoulder, as well as "major", which in medical contexts usually refers to the chief section of a body part. As the clavicle bone does not have any components aside from the main bone, this phrase is useless.
  • Email unused emails — Strong Bad runs and jumps on the table in his computer room, and makes the same complaint about his broken "clavicus majorus" while lying on his back.
  • Email suntanThe Cloitsterizer claims to be able to maximize your "cloits and dloits", two more nonexistent body parts.
  • Peasant's Quest — If Rather Dashing repeatedly uses the crank at the well, the game mentions exercising your "Deltoidus Rex" muscles. This name is based on a shoulder muscle called the deltoid muscle. Rex is Latin for "king".
