"He just got a crappy job."



The Diapersmith says: "Phrppp!"

The Poopsmith (whose name is "The Poopsmith" with the definite article) is just a regular guy with a very crappy job. Literally. His body is peach-colored and egg-shaped, and he has small blue legs and feet, a white head, and an enormous underbite. He always wears a pair of large orange gloves stained with whatsit, and he is usually seen carrying a large shovel. The Poopsmith has taken a vow of silence and never officially speaks, nor does he seem to ever display any emotions or facial expressions. He does occasionally hold up signs to communicate, however.

While it is unclear exactly what his job is, The Poopsmith has been employed by the King of Town, apparently to shovel whatsit for a living. While he never seems to transfer whatsit between his constantly-soiled gloves and anything he touches, the inherently filthy nature of his job tends to keep him out of most social circles. Despite this, he seems to be held in deep respect by the other characters. For example, Strong Bad has refrained from hurting The Poopsmith, figuring "the guy shovels crap for a living so his tolerance for pain's gotta be through the roof." He even made two cakes for The Poopsmith (though he threw one of them at Strong Sad).

The Poopsmith's job apparently also includes making biscuit dough, as seen in Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon, and he plays the cymbals for the K.O.T.H.S. Junior Varsity Marching Band, which made its first appearance in Fall Float Parade. He is sometimes seen poking his shovel as a half-gesture, similar to how his Old-Timey incarnation, The Demon, uses his pitchfork.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {offscreen, narrating in animal show host type voice} Here we have a rare glimpse of the Poopsmith in his natural habitat. {drops narrative tone} Pretty nasty, if you ask me. Oh, {narrating} The Poopsmith has taken a vow of silence. {drops narrative tone} I'm about to take a vow of throwin' up my cookies all over this microphone. {taps microphone twice} How much is this thing worth, anyways? 'Cause it's about to be worth a lot less. No for real. The Poopsmith is a good guy. He just got a crappy job.


The Poopsmith has taken a vow of silence and never officially speaks. However, there have been a few minor exceptions:
