I really like your costume

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
"Hey, Homestar, I really like your 'that one guy from Mad mazagine' costume."

Homestar Runner often will mistake a costume that someone (including himself) is wearing for another person. These mistakes are often bizarre or ludicrous. He appears to be certain his wild assumptions are correct, even going as far as phrasing the mistaken recognition as a compliment to the wearer, rather than simply a question of what they're supposed to be. This began, naturally, as a Halloween joke and has become enough of a running gag that it has happened on several occasions in other toons as well.
