I sorta heard "seneral", but I think that's because of his speech impediment. My vote is "senator". {{User:Salty/sig}} 21:47, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Authentic TBC

Question: Why? I mean, are TBC doing work for macromedia now? Is this offical? -James

This is almost certainly official (or else someone can do absolutely perfect Strong Bad and Homestar impersinations). As for why, it may have been commissioned by Macromedia. Or the designers of the program asked TBC really nicely. Who knows? There's a thread on the message board about it here --TheNintenGenius 11:07, 30 Sep 2004 (MST)

It deffinetly is TBC's work. they put a Quote of the Week from it.--That crazy DumDe!

Someone deleted the Remarks thing about it being considered legit, now that it's in QOTW. Of course we would question it. I mean, it was an EXTREMELY HARD-TO-FIND Easter egg in a program that has no other connection to H*R. It seems fine, but someone could ALWAYS be using acute sound samples. Marshmallow Roast

No, I deleted "The line 'Naw, it ain't heaven. There aren't enough Twinkies.' is now a Quote of the Week", which is dumb. Of course this is legit Homestar Runner material! TBC made the darn thing! —FireBird|Talk 01:20, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)
The article mentions that "this is now considered official material". It comes a bit out of left field. Can you also explain why someone might think it's not official material?
The Bros Chaps make stuff in Flash, and Macromedia used Homestar in their Flash 8 conference, so it has a purpose to be in Flash. Also, the password for it is sbemail, so more evidence leading to "Made by Brothers Chap". Annoy Miss, Decemberween 2005
Agreeing with anony here. If that wasn't TBC's work, whose was it? Considering it's the authentic animation style, authentic voices, authentic style, etc... :) Just because it doesn't appear on the actual H*R site doesn't mean it's not authentic H*R material. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 20:32, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
It also appears on the Everything Else, Volume 1 DVD as an easter egg. Heimstern Läufer 20:39, 29 December 2005 (UTC)


Can we agree on whether the "Are" is capitalized or not now, already? It's been moved twice here, from Are to are and from are to Are. We need consensus! --TheNintenGenius 15:18, 2 Oct 2004 (MST)

I believe it's standard in American English to decapitalize forms of the word "(to) be" in titles. Of course, if we don't want to get in debates over this kind of stuff, we could use full title case: "Where The Crap Are We?". Problem solved. - [[User:furrykef|furrykef (Talk at me)]] 01:05, 25 Nov 2004 (MST)

You're right; "Are" should be capitalized. --

This may be an old discussion, but I still think otherwise. When watching the toon, the page title is "Where the Crap are We?" Therefore, the "are" should not be capitallized.

Contested Fun Fact

  • Homestar mentions at the end of the toon that he thinks they're in Massachusetts. Also, in the Easter Egg, he appears to be talking to a "Senator Pencilface". Senator John Kerry is from Massachusetts, and he is sometimes mocked with the name "Pencil-face". Many contest this, saying that The Brothers Chaps wouldn't create a political cartoon, because it simply isn't their style. However, the inferences are just too obvious, and they are right there in the open.
I've decided to add 'Ivan's contested fun fact to the talk page here. I still think it's too shaky to be added, because while there's nothing saying it ISN'T a political reference, there's also nothing saying that it IS. And I've still never heard Kerry called "pencil face." --TheNintenGenius 15:18, 17 Oct 2004 (MST)
I agree, and I would have also removed it. -- Tom 16:59, 17 Oct 2004 (MST)

I thought that TBC were implying that Massetachussetts Hell. I thought that this meant that, like most Southerners, TBC don't like yankees. For those of you who are slow on the uptake, by "yankees", I mean people from the North, not the baseball team. 10:12, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

Methinks that most Southerners are quite over and done with any hard feelings about events that transpired 139 years ago and counting. And if they aren't...well...get over it. And if they want slavery back...get over it. Or get out. I'm a historian specializing in the Civil War, and I'm well aware that two Atlanta boys don't give a whit about Yankee vs Dixie feelings. Those in nowheresville, Georgia might. My point is, Southern cities are very much like Northern ones today. TBC are two very intelligent men and wouldn't stoop to whoremongering about petty crap like this. Homestar could just as easily have said Virginia. --Southpaw018 10:50, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

Shut up. There are other reasons that Southerners have for hating the North, which I choose not to state for risk of it being considered flaming. 11:51, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

I wouldn't consider it flaming. What else do southerners got against us? I'm curious. -Miss Free Country USA 3:35 Nov 30 2004

As if telling someone to shut up isn't rude enough as-is. --TheNintenGenius 12:27, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)

I agree w/ TheNintenGenius. It ain't polite to tell someone to shut up. Tim-E- Dee 18:20, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)

Hi there Sanjuro. Please note that this conversation occurred four months ago. It's done. Also, please do not feed the trolls. Thanks. -- Tom 11:48, 21 Mar 2005 (MST)

I too have never heard Kerry called "Pencil Face." I've heard horse face, but not pencil, so the thought never ocurred to me. And the whole Massachusetts seems a bit to political for TBC to imply MA is hell, even if they are from the south. Any other political jokes would be a stretch...the main joke imo is that it's funny to hear Homestar pronounce "Massachusetts."

Hi there. Please note that this conversation occurred eight months ago. -- Tom 03:33, 24 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Wait a minute- isn't there an actual town called "Hell" somehwre's? In like, Massechusetts or Michigan or somewhere's? Wait, it's in Minnesota! That means my theory is wrong! SaltyTalk! 21:47, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi there Salty. Please note that this conversation occurred fourteen months ago. -- Tom 21:51, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to Massachusetts!

Heck, I live in Massachusetts! I wish I had found this toon earlier, cuz its nice to have a reference to your home state, even if its a satirical one. Yes, this was a pointless topic to bring up. -acekirby13

Ditto. I'm a Bay Stater myself and I thought it was freakin' hilarious. ;)-- 03:22, 10 Apr 2005 (MDT)
Wow, I wasn't expecting a reply. Sweet. '_' -acekirby13 20:25, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
this was truly hilarious - he-who-shall-not-be-named
I live in Wareham myself. This toon was like, the funniest thing ever.--SBadiaRula
    • I'm also from the BS (uhoh, "Bay State"-"BS" That's not good), and I'm totally fine with this

'toon. I mean, sure, it could be insulting if you're a very literal person, but I don't think TBS were tring to insult us. -Nom anor67


  • That weekly quote had one from here. That's wierd. I mean, that cartoon wasn't even on the site! --Gooblies 20:47, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • True. But it was definitely made by TBC, and it's widely publicized in H*R circles like this one. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 20:48, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • In the last sketchbook they had, they also made mention of the unguraits. Maybe they're starting to be more open about their more secret workings? Maybe next week we'll finally find out what Trivia Time officially looks like.


This cartoon can be found in the program Macromedia Central. Go into "Help → About Central" and ctrl-click on the "C" logo (On Mac go into "Central → About Central" and double CMD Click on the C logo). When you are given a password field, type in "sbemail" and press enter. The cartoon will then play in the about box.
How did someone find this? Were they just randomly clicking everywhere, typing random stuffs in the password box, hoping to find it? — talk Bubsty edits 04:30, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Calling Homestar Runner!

I think the line is "General Pencilface" instead of "Senator Pencilface." It doesn't sound like senator at all to me. EASports 03:57, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

I hear "Senator". -- Tom 04:00, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
I hear the same as Tom. Heimstern Läufer 04:03, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
Second = Very Yes. Oh wait. This isn't STUFF. Has Matt? (talk) 04:04, 13 January 2006 (UTC)
Weird. It sounded like "general" at one volume setting and "senator" at another. Somewhere between it sounds like "seneral." EASports

I sorta heard "seneral", but I think that's because of his speech impediment. My vote is "senator". SaltyTalk! 21:47, 14 January 2006 (UTC)


I can't find the toon on the Central area anymore! --Mini-Trogdor 01:56, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
