The expression is "a real trouper" (with an -ou-, not an -oo-). The word trouper means "one who handles adversity well."

So to say "a real state trooper" is both a play on the meaning and spelling.

As far as the Decemberween in July goes, I didn't get the feeling that TBC were really celebrating it in July as much as it was a takeoff of all these stores whose marketing departments shamelessly announce that they're having a "Christmas in July" sale and everyone needs to drop what they're doing and come buy stuff. (It always seems to be July, never a different month, like June.) Comedy Central also did Christmas in July, although I forget why.

I never knew what was up with Christmas in July, and I still don't. How can you have the Christmas spirit and feel the comfort and joy in the summer? Cartoon Network certainly makes a big deal out of it... :rolleyes:

Truth be told, I made a mistake that I corrected in the STUFF.

The real lyric is "I'm a real straight shooter," the misheard lyric "I'm a real state trooper" and Homsar is talking in the second person, like when he says "Hi, Wonder Mike" in his characters video.

I was really hoping "Oh crap! I ran into the door!" would be the next Quote Of The Week. I laugh every time I hear it.

"Left-out characters' support group and buffet" that's great
I thought Homestar did talk with Homsar for the pumpkin contest..? Alms for the paggie.....well I had thought it was "Homs for the paggie! Homs for the paggie!" referring to maybe a part in a pageant?

I did try setting the clock backwards, and the timer does change when you do. Homestar's clock here had a weird resemblance to the clock in #120 Radio, as how it turns to another minute. Great to see how Strong Sad does get stuck. My question is, how does Homestar run outside naked if he's wearing his pajamas last we see him? PJs fall off down the stairs?
The toon at the start didn't feel much like a Homestar toon at first, oddly. The voices sounded different for the most part, but yeah higher bitrate sounds right. Strong Bad's didn't change much, but you can tell the higher overtones in Marzipan's voice.
If you noticed, the page is "xmas04.html" Politically speaking, Christmas is sort of incorporated to our lives really, so much that it's not so much a religious holiday(save to the religious) but also a time to just get people presents and hang out, get off of school and work. Hard call why it's called Decemberween.

Decent stuff, but unfortunately none of it made me realy laugh this time



What clock are you talking about?

It's the countdown clock at the end of the toon. The one you click on to get to the egg.
