Left Handedness

Strong Sad is squirrel-handed left-handed

Although only approximately 10% of the US population are left-handed, a large portion of the characters in the Homestar Runner universe appear to be either left-handed or ambidextrous (even though some characters do not have visible arms). Since all 3 of The Brothers Strong are ambidextrous, it may be a trait that runs in the family. In fact, given how different they really are from each other, it may be the only trait they have in common.
