Ding! Bubs's Shady Business Practices is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.



I say move to "Bubs's Bad Business Practices" per Doomy Tales. — Defender1031*Talk 20:50, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Nah, "Shady" has a much nicer ring. "Bad" can mean a lot of things (evil, bad quality, poorly run), and I think they chose it just for the Pulp Fiction reference. "Shady", on the other hand, conveys the right nuance. It's a word that's used in the canon with regularity, too. In Broken Compy Menu, Homestar asks, "What kinda shady Bubs business you running here anyways?" — It's dot com 21:03, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
I agree, "Shady" sounds much better! (And shadier too). --Stux 21:04, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the little tidbit that's worth adding. You're right. — Defender1031*Talk 21:06, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Questionable Medical Coverage

What section would the questionable medical coverage from Donut unto others go under? — Defender1031*Talk 21:19, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

How about "Insurance fraud"? Guybrush20X6 21:51, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
I like it, but maybe just "Fraud" as it'll allow for a wider range of offenses. — Defender1031*Talk 21:53, 2 May 2010 (UTC)


Does anyone else think we should remove the stub tag? I can't think of any ones that we missed. Ecept maybe for him changing his costume to get money in The House that gave sucky treats, but I don't think that counts as business. Guybrush20X6 17:26, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

You're right. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 18:04, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Wait a minute, I just rememberd. Would Bubs selling Marzipan eggs as organic batteries count as false advertising? Guybrush20X6 18:20, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Also, sould it be noted in the intro that he was in federal prison in Play Date. Guybrush20X6 18:27, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Uncertain additions

If your uncertain if your would-be contribution to the list counts just post it under here and have it disscused. I'll go first

  • Quality time — Bubs sells eggs to marzipan as "organic batteries". (false advertising)

I say it counts, and be bold. After it's been reverted (with a valid reason in the edit summary) you can discuss it on the talk page; until then, if you think it belongs, add it! --Jay (Talk) 23:38, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Ok, about the "1 flavor, over a hundred different names for it!" deal in "Donut Unto Others" I think thats false advertising or some type of trick. What should I put that under?!

  • You can put it under false adverising and bait and switch. I put the American Dental assosiation thing under 2 categories as well. (Guybrush20X6 away from usual Lappy.) 21:10, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
