Ding! labor day 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.


Easter Egg

I've been wondering for quite a while now. They've made Everybody Knows It and in an Easter egg in this 'toon it shows the Labor Dabor party, no animation, just playing Everybody Knows It. BUT now I'm wondering 2 things: 1. Was it originally a secret song like circles and 2. Why didn't they remove the easter egg? It makes logical sense. --Mr. Talks-a-Lot

Closed STUFF

Strong Bad referencing Lucky? (DECLINED)

In the Schenectady Crispies egg, Strong bad says "I hope I don't get caught!" This could be a reference to Lucky Charms, in which Lucky, the cereal making leprechaun, is constantly avoiding getting caught by the kids who want his cereal.

  • AH! COULD BE! Decline at once! --ISlayedTheKerrek 17:43, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • It's Magically Declined! --Beatfox 19:58, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Hearts! Stars! Declines! -- AtionSong 20:34 11 May 2005
  • They're After Me Lucky Declines! ---the spludge 21:58, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • wow, so many Declines After further review, i'm changing my vote to neutral ---Nighthawk
  • Insert Lucky Charms related Decline pun here. --Upset_Your_Balance 23:05, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • seemed to me like it was just making fun of pretty much any cereal commercial that uses slogans like that, so decline'd. --Tehngion 23:42, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I'm not in the mood to be clever, so... Decline Dasrik 02:55, 12 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Unlike Strong Bad, this DECLINE actually references Lucky Charms Or maybe not. Stilled declined though. Donny vs Universe
  • This Decline is part of a balanced breakfast.--Tony Stony 11:24, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

  • Very Weak Decline. OK ... so, why *doesn't* he want to get caught? -- tomstiff 17:08, 12 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Uh... accept? {is pummeled by angry mobs} DECLINE, I meant DECLINE! Seriously. -- Joshua
  • Comment. Tomstiff has a point... why does Strong Bad say this if its not a reference? --fakename
    • But he still declined it, so what's the point? --ISlayedTheKerrek 03:33, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Decline. The Trix rabbit doesn't want to be caught by the kids; Barney doesn't want to be caught by Fred Flintstone while he's stealing Fred's Fruity Pebbles. So there's at least two other things he could be referencing, if it even is a reference, which I'm not so sure it is. — It's dot com 13:35, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
      • Comment. Agreed. TBC do have a tendency to write silly, random jokes that don't appear to make any sense whatsoever ( and the Stinkoman 20x6 manual are chock full of 'em). It's completely possible that this isn't a reference at all. --Beatfox 19:30, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Decline. Upgrading to full decline. -- tomstiff 15:19, 13 May 2005 (UTC)
    • I dunno why else Strong Bad would be saying "I Hope I don't Get Caught".. I mean, obviously there are many things he could be referencing. Personally to me the Lucky Charms one makes the most sense because that the Trix Rabbit does not want to get caught stealing the cereal, same with Barney. But only Lucky Charms has the spokesperson (i.e. the person of whom the cereal belongs to) trying to not get caught. I am still unsure but I think its a valid fact, though whether it is fun or not remains to be seen. But if he is not paradying seems like a non sequitur...Just a comment --Tony Stonytalk00:43, 14 May 2005 (UTC)(Changed decline vote to Neutral)
    • Yeah, you know what? I am going to be bold here and Accept this. Mainly cause I don't see any other reason for Strong Bad to say this you know? -- Tony Stonytalk
    • This is a general reference to lots of kids' cereal commercials which involve someone trying to steal cereal from kids or kids trying to steal cereal from someone else. Not only is there Lucky, Trix Rabbit and Barney, there is also the Cookie Crook from Cookie Crisp.
  • Comment. OH! Barney as in Barney Rubble! I thought you meant Barney the purple dinosaur...
  • Decline I always thought he said "I hope I don't get caught" because you're supposed to taste the cereal in your esophagus and it could get caught in your esophagus. -Miss Free Country USA

Edgar from the future

In the email candy product, we learn Strong Bad's Lappy has Edgar's Baby's Daddy installed for the express purpose of filtering Homestar's emails. If he also had this program on the Compy, it could explain why Strong Bad didn't receive his invitation.

KOT quote

Did anyone hear the King say something after Strong Sad made his deleted joke? I hear something, but I can't quite make it out. --TaranchulaVamp15 14:01, 7 Nov 2005 (CST)


Where did the burger come from if it wasn't in the cooler? I dunno. And now, back down the rabbithole I go! {explodes with candy} --Homfrog 19:15, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Cheat the Mighty?

Is the really tall and really short contrast stated by Strong Bad a reference to Freak the Mighty? Just a thought, by --Jellote 15:51, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
