A grammatically correct wrestler named Strong Bad. Cartoons. Games. Downloads. Puppets. Trogdor.
Run by the Brothers Chaps, www.homestarrunner.com is perhaps the #1 fun website for comedy, games and more.
If rock opera parodies and computer geek cut downs are your cup of tea, then this is the site for you.
If you are new to www.homestarrunner.com, take the tour and meet all of the characters from lisping Homestarrunner to Flower Child Marzipan and depressed Strong Sad (brother of smart ass wrestler Strong Bad). Strong Bad is kind of a mix between Al Pacino as Tony Montana and a Russian wrestler with a wry sense of humor.
Beginners should peruse the Strong Bad email section and read a few emails to get an idea of what the site is about, or else you may not understand their 80’s infused/computer dry humor. I highly recommend the emails entitled Dragon, Japanese Cartoon and Rock Opera.
The piece d’rÃ?Â©sistance of this site, as any fan will tell you, is their cool retro Atari style games from Videlectrix (their sort-of made up software company). Play Trogdor and stomp on peasants, or Peasants Quest (a parody of King’s Quest) to reek revenge on Trogdor. If Atari games rock your world, try Strong Bad Zone, but don’t let your head asplode. Old-school Nintendo games more your style? Try Stinkoman or Awexome Cross. The sweet graphics and soundtracks to Videlectrix games are second to none on the web.
One of the best things about www.homestarrunner.comis that they are totally innocent and kid friendly. Profanity is kept to a minimum, and even though young kids may not understand a lot of the humor, they can still enjoy watching the cartoons with you. Most likely, they will think that the goofy puppet shows starring Homestarrunner are funny.
This website updates often, so there is always something new, which is probably one of the elements to their success. Check out Strong Bad, Homestar and others, but beware-you may feel like you have found some hilarious cult following.
Peasants Quest Movie Trailer
This live action fake movie trailer (which is funnier if you are a Trogdor follower) is hilarious. Equal parts Lord of the Rings and Monty Python.
Puppet Jam with They Might Be Giants
You know that these guys are too cool when they can have the Homestarrunner puppet jam with a band like “They Might Be Giants.”
While www.homestarrunner.com may be THE funniest on the web, check these guys out too for a few belly laughs on your coffee break, or while the boss isn’t looking:
For clips of Ashlee Simpson’s SNL slip-up and more, this site is about, you guessed it, college humor. Call it beer-guzzling frat boy heaven in cyberspace.
Some of the best humor on the web can be found in the blogs. For some really off-the-wall humor, check out:
You guessed it…this guy dances EVERY DAY. And not very well, to boot. His grooves aren’t very stylistic and his songs are from another era, but this computer nerd loves to dance, and dance he does. Check out “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred and “The Safety Dance” by Men With Hats for some of his best (or worst?) dance numbers.
No topic is taboo on this blog run by a young entrepreneur. Every Friday he creates his own Late Show-style Top Ten list which usually includes farts and practical jokes. Not for the faint of heart.
