Ding! Cheerleader 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.

[edit] One parent?

I really doubt the phrase "You mean your parent's house?" means that Cheerleader has only one parent. Doesn't it seem much more likely that this is a punctuation error (i.e., that it should read "parents' house")? It should be noted that TGS has included apostrophe-related errors in the past; for example, early TGS episodes often also included the phrase "ITS OVER!", which lacks a necessary apostrophe.

I agree. I never call my mom or my dad "my parent" like that. For example, when referring to my dad's car, I would never say, "This is my parent's car." I would just say, "This is my dad's car." — It's dot com 05:36, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
Unless a future TGS says otherwise, I agree with this as well. --Jay (Talk) 05:37, 28 October 2005 (UTC)
Actually, I just remembered that an earlier TGS confirms my argument: in Teen Girl Squad Issue 4, the caption for Cheerleader at the beginning says, "cool parents!", suggesting that she does not have only one parent. Not that I probably needed to argue for it, but that should seal a'the deal. Heimstern Läufer 01:34, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Metres

I removed the quotation marks around metres in the article. I assume they were there in the first place because the orignial author thought the word was spelled incorrectly as a joke. However, the spelling is correct outside of the United States, and therefore in Scotland where the Cabertosser would have originated from. So, from their his point of view, the spelling was correct and does not need the quotations.

Just explaining myself.

True, however this is an American site and HR is an American cartoon. To spell it as "Metre" is unusual, and is therefore worthy of those quotes. Thank you for your edits, and keep on trangling! — Defender1031*Talk 18:48, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Further to your last minor edit to this talk, you proved my point. From his point of view, aka, what he said, hence the quotes. — Defender1031*Talk 18:50, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Makes sense. I'm just saying that the scotsman spelled it metre correctly (to him).
And I'M saying that the quotes are there BECAUSE it was HIS way. If we thought it were incorrect, there'd be a "sic" there instead. — Defender1031*Talk 18:54, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Point taken.

I don't like the use of quotes there. It makes it look as though we're implying that "metres" isn't really a word or that they are "so-called metres" or something like that. I'm not exactly sure what to do instead of including them (certainly, if we just write "metres" with no quotes, it will look out of place here), but the quotes look wrong to me.

I think they're fine for lack of a better option. As i said, if we thought it weren't a word there'd be a sic there.
How about including 23 in the quotes: "23 metres"? I think that removes any suggestion that metres isn't a word. Trey56 19:07, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Never mind; this is a good solution. Trey56 19:09, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
I agree. The reference to the number of metres was unnecessary in the first place. --andres92 19:22, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
As do I. I wasn't actually thinking along those lines, and it definitely looks better without it. — Defender1031*Talk 19:24, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Quotes

old fan here, i think that it would be awesome if the "quotes" section also had the segment from Teen Girl Squad Issue 8 where she sings "It's over! It's over! Strong Bad says it's over!.." etc. with the cool guitar riff, or if it doesn't fit on *this* page, then some other kinda page. since that is one hilarious and awesome bit of the Homestar Runner Universe and Teen Girl Squad specifically. related to that, is there a single page where all the quotes spread around all these pages are listed?

Hello, old fan! Those "quotes" that you speak of are actually Quotes of the week picked by TBC. We don't add any quotes unless they do. — Defender1031*Talk 20:09, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
