[edit] Cigs?

Cigarettes appear frequently in H*R. I know it's kinda not the kind of thing we want, you know, but it qualifies. I could find about 10 instances. SaltyTalk! 06:43, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] "His Mom is proud of him"

This is an inside joke that seems to pop up every time there's a news article on the site. Shouldn't it have it's own page? Anyone hate that idea? Mila

More of a Running Gag actually. Good catch. - Dr Haggis - Talk 22:47, 6 Mar 2005 (MST)

[edit] "Pork and Beans"

I'm not sure if this is running or inside. But Homestar is fond of it, and I think it merits mentioning somewhere.

Inside Jokes are something that is found mainly on the site itself. Pork and beans [isn't. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:08, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Presidents

Hey guys. This is a theme running throughout the TMBG's work, but it pops up in more than one place, including:

  • Everybody to the limit- The pictures of JFK (and to a lesser extent RFK) and the silhouette of Lincoln.
  • The Cheat's Character page- The bust of VanBuren.
  • space program- The aforementioned bust is duct taped to the front of the Proud Anselmo.

See what I mean? Just another idea from Elvis

Also the game Homestar was playing on the ATM machine in Experimental Film. What do you mean TMBG? They Might be Giants? SaltyTalk! 00:45, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

You guessed it Salty. I kind of left that one out because of the obvious influence of They Might Be Giants. The President of Rock & Roll

[edit] Fangs

I saw that Mike (or was it Matt?) who liked to put fangs on. This happened many times, like in TGS, and in Experimental Film, which the lion has fangs. The goblin was going to have arms, and fangs. This qualifies, right? 19:14, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Articles Starting With "The"

All the articles starting with "The" are under T instead of..whatever letter the word after "the" starts with. Like, with "The Beatles", should it be under T or B? If they should be under the other letter, should I go ahead and change it? CompGrl323 (talk · edits) 01:46, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, spotted. That needs to be fixed like so, so The Beatles is listed under B. That's more helpful than listing them under T. Feel free to fix all those if you've got spare time :-) Loafing 01:51, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Tampering With the DNA Evidence

I've seen about 4 instances of this, but I can't find the start of it! Can anyone help me out so we can get it on the wiki? -April 24 — (Talk | contribs) 20:32, 24 April 2007 (left unsigned)

It started in strong badathlon, and we already have a page on it ar DNA Evidence. Dr. Clash 20:40, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Strange, it didn't come up when I searched for it. Sorry about that :]

[edit] Just what is an inside joke?

Please don't shoot me down, but I wouldn't consider a lot of these things 'inside jokes', but just more of regular appearances. I'd class inside jokes as things such as Ali and Ali's Sister, Wear a Bikini! and Grrl. However, eggs, hip-hop and children... I don't think so.

"An inside joke is a joke whose humor is clear only to those people who are "inside" a social group or occupation. They may be colloquially referred to as "You had to be there" moments" to quote Wikipedia.

Sorry, love the work you do though. :)

Hello, WikiNode person. ^_~ We generally classify inside jokes as people, things, etc. that show up quite a lot in the Homestar Runner cartoons, but only avid viewers or sometimes just The Brothers Chaps (the creators of, in case you forgot/didn't know) know why they're funny. As in the cases of eggs, hip hop, and children, we know that TBC likes to mention those things, so even though they're commonplace in real life, it's funny when we see them. To someone who hasn't seen much of the site, it makes no sense. That's why they're Inside Jokes. Regards, -Brightstar Shiner 14:25, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Breakfast

...seems to get frequent mention. 05:14, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
