Mr. Spanish Man

The Spanish language is sometimes spoken as a way to make certain words sound foreign, and also sometimes to allude to Strong Bad's Mexican wrestling heritage. There are also a few times when a real Spanish saying is changed for humorous effects.

  • Señor — The name means "Mister" in Spanish.
