Bubs will do anything to make a buck. From selling Pom_Pom beating the everloving crap out of you, to making you pay to wait in line, to selling the D from his sign. When you run a small bubness you'll have to do the same thing too.

Sure he's greedy. But Homestar is dumb enough to fall for his schemes, or at least the waiting in line one. So why not take advantage of it?

I don't know if I like the word "greedy" to describe Bubs, but he certainly knows how to spot an opportunity to make some money, and reel the suckers in and get them to part with their funds.

Bubs is also a bit of a penny-pincher, based on the fact that he made Strong Bad buy the costume himself.

So very true, I couldn't have said it better myself. The reason why he does all that wierd crap to make money is because people are stupid enough to buy it.

Bubs is greedy, but that's what makes him so hilarious. He is such an awesome character and every time I see another one of his greedy schemes, it makes me laugh so hard.

Sorry to say that I can't help but remember Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob when I think of Bubs. But he's not as bad... kinda.

Um....I always thought he is just trying to make enough money, because his family was poor.
:bubs: = maybe Itilan

What does Bubs being "Itilan" have to do with his being poor?

You saying us Italians are poor? Are you saying that we're in the Mob? Whatever...
Bubs is a small buisness owner, so he has to do everything to make money. When you run your own store, yo need to make as much money as you can to survive.

All right, Discount Brick, you don't have to yell. But you can understand our confusion, as Italian people (from Italy, at least) typically have a slightly-darker-than-Caucasian complexion and dark hair. Bubs is blue.

Sorry, I just get really angry when people falsely accuse me.
I dunno, I just always thought of Bubs as Italian, I'm just weird.

Well yeah, there was Bubs' Pizza, with Bubs on the box with the Mario-esque mustache.

"It'sa really old!"

Maybe that's where you got it from.

Well, Skeeter from Doug was blue....I think he was supposed to black or something, I dunno.

Just pointing that out :)

I know not this Doug you speak of, Shishu, but maybe all rationality just goes out the window when it comes to blue people. :mrgreen:

And good call on the Bubs' Pizza thing, JTTC. I had forgotten about that.

Now that I see the picture, I know what you mean. But Nickelodeon is an American thing, and as far as I know, not carried on Canadian cable (satellite, yes). So I never saw it until Disney bought it out, and by then I was 16 and too "cool" to watch stuff like that. I guess i've lost my "coolness" now, in favour of Nerdity.

Bubs being greedy may have something to do with him being based off of Fred Sanford(which TBC stated in an interview).

Of course he is. He's an entrepeneur.

Is the King of Town fat?

And yeah, I always thought if Bubs was a normal human, he'd be black.
