From Homestar Runner Wiki
- This article is about pants in general. For the running gag about whether Homestar Runner wears pants, see Homestar Runner's Pants.
Very few of Free Country, USA's residents actually wear pants, as shown in senior prom: When Strong Bad's plan to poof away everybody's pants backfires, he realizes that he's "the only one that wears any pants". Most notably, it is an ongoing mystery as to whether or not Homestar Runner wears them. Given the relaxed nature of Free Country's social expectations concerning pants, it is surprising that Homestar and his friends discuss them with great frequency — the subject of pants is an unending source of humor for them.
