That was so awful that I added a zero option to the poll. I even thought about negative numbers. Can I have those 79 seconds of my life back, please?

EDIT: I stand by these comments at the time I made them, but see my revised comments below.

Eh... It all seemed, I dunno, odd. And not in the usual awesome TBC style. Definitely not one of my favorites. Ah well, can't expect them all to be winners. I'd give it 2, but even that's being generous.

It's the first cartoon of this year I think I really like. It's surreal, it's stupid, and it has an actual storyline. 5/5.

I can't believe you guys! This was the best characterization on this site I've seen in months! This was almost a step back to the pre-2007 days for TBC, and that's a good thing. Homestar was great, Strong Sad maybe even better, and Strong Bad attempted to give this 'toon a plot where it really didn't need one, but still 5/5.

"Al-leg-ed ladies' man?"
"Oh, Strong Bad! It's like my cow lamp and your tape leg had a baby in my mind and it just came out my mouth!"

It was really short, but Homestar managed to make an @$$ out of Strong Bad, so I gotta give it points for that.

To me, it looks like it's short because the insanity level was getting higher and higher so fast that, if it had been allowed to continue, it would have been Homsar x1000 within seconds.

4/5.

That was... interesting. Not sure if I like this one or not. If I do, I love it. Otherwise it's just sorta bewildering.

I have this feeling that they couldn't come up with anything this week and were running close to deadline when they just decided to throw something up real quick. That doesn't look like it took more than an hour or so of work.

I have no idea what to say about this one, other than I loved it. SO RANDOM but SO ADORABLE. Homestar's speech pattern continues to make me squee like an adolescent girl going to a Jonas Brother concert.

I liked the angle they used on Strong Bad in that one scene. Is that new? I don't ever remember seeing him from a worm's eye view before.

You watched it! You can't un-watch it!

Certainly not a gem like the last non-sequitur of a toon, but amusing in its own right. Some good lines, at least.

Nice short one. I mean, REALLY short one. Surely they could have changed the title and such to 85 Seconds left, but still, whatever, it sounds cool. Pedantics.
It makes me want to try out the pouring water on the knee thing. Oh man, that would be awesome. :P
Not the actual condition, but yeah, anyway.

This short was just [squeaky fangirl voice] soooo adorable! [/squeaky fangirl voice]
Actually, that's probably the point why it seemed lame to some of you... it kind of smells like a big box of chocolate wrapped in a pink bow. It was that sweet. I just love that kind of stuff. :)

I gave it 5/5. Why? The ending for whatever reason made me laugh so hard. It was so completely random! I love it! Though I gotta say...I think the lack of sbemails is starting to get to Strong Bad. He seems like he's bored and is trying to figure out what to do with himself. I mean...him willingly hanging out with Homestar and Strong Sad? He seems pretty desperate.

I'm not complaining, I just think it's interesting. :mrgreen: :p

Wow TBC have been pumping out a lot of stuff this week! hurr pouring water on the knee, so enthralling.
Also there is something wonderful yet slightly disconterting about Homestar's perception of cow leg.

... That is not a side of It's Dot Com I have seen before :eek:

I found it neither more nor less than weird and nonsensical. Neither good nor bad, just weird and nonsensical.

It was a good way to start my morning. With an epic pose of Strong Bad.

"Like a leg?"

Just...so many witty comments.

Oh... wow. XD At first I was wondering, like, "When is it going to be hilarious?" And then the "Just 3 to go..." appeared, and I was like, oh, lulz.

5/5. That was an amusing start to the week. ^_^

EDIT: Okay, I missed that easter-edge the first time. That confirms my 5/5.

Not sure I gave it 2/5

It was almost like a quick joke that would be in an SBEMAIL. Then Strong Bad will go on trying to find New Names. Then finally make a realization that Strong Bad is the coolest name ever because he couldn't think of anything cooler.

I would give it a 2/5, but an extra point for the cow lamp/tape-leg baby thing. Overall, the toon was random, and depending on how TBC pull it off, that's not always a good thing. So 3/5.

I lack words. Words that are permitted on this forum, anyway.

Giving it a 4/5 because it did make me laugh way too hard, but what is this toon? Seriously? Why is Strong Sad sitting in a field with Homestar Runner? Why do they only seem to be there to pour water on their knees? Why does Strong Bad want such a silly nickname? Why did he drag a chair all the way out into the field just to announce his silly nickname? Whose chair is that, anyway?

Just ... what is this toon? It felt more like I was popping in and just watching their lives for a moment. A Homestar Runner reality show, even. This is just how they spend their days, I guess.

The humor of the nickname "The Leg" is what really makes this toon, and it culminates beautifully in the easter egg. Everything else is not terribly interesting.

Although...Strong Sad really has gotten rather snarky toward his older brother, over the years.

Am I the only one who thinks that absolutely nothing happened in this short? It was just Homestar and SS sitting in the field, talking a load of nonsense, but not in the usual hilarious way of H*R.
1/5, just for the "It does spell Leg" bit. It made my boredom waver a tiny bit.

Way too random for my tastes. No coherence whatsoever. Also, it was too short, even with the Easter egg. 2/5

I honestly can't see what people hate about this so much, or how all the funny, witty comments in this toon are any different than the majority of the humor in the rest of the site. I thought it was great, maybe a little slow in the beginning but it moved past it quick enough.

Perhaps I'm not sophisticated enough to know that I'm not really enjoying the site anymore and I should nitpick things more. Either way, until the quickening happens I'll just go on enjoying myself.


You mean, like, short for leg?
SHORT FOR LEG?

Awesome

Maybe I was just really tired last night or was expecting something else, but the toon's not nearly so bad in the light of day. I upped my vote from a zero to a two.

I didn't think much of Lookin at a Thing in a Bag at first, either, but now it's one of my favorites. Only time will tell if anything close to that can be said for this one.

:hr: - Short For Leg??

At least THAT's perfect. I've watched the toon, and it's quite similar.
And it's Homestar.
Oh. Wait.

This toon just provides more proof for the arguement that HR, SB, and SS are the three real main characters of the site.

I give it a three. It wasn't amazingly funny, and it was incredibly short, but it still made me smile the whole way through. Also, I have a rule that a toon only deserves to exist if it provides some form of new animation, and this requirement was met with the water and Strong Bad on the chair.

Also, from the Page Title and the setting, I thought that the Drive-Thru Whale was going to make an appearance.

*poof* I liked it. I like when Strong Sad gets sarcastic or manages an insult at Strong Bad. ;o

And if they did make this one kind of late, that might explain the title in how they were running out of time because really I can't figure out if that's just a reference or pointlessness.

All right, let me figure this out. Homestar started a wet knee gumption club and it meets in the middle of the field possibly so it'll just spill into the ground. And Strong Sad joined because he's lonely. Strong Bad explains why he wants the nickname (and as Strong Sad said in buried, "Or, maybe[...] you're crazier than ever.") And finally, the chair is to make himself seem more important.

That's what I got out of it, anyway. Weird. Most cartoons when you try to inject logic into them, your head just hurts.

And I'm giving it a 5/5 just because I like total randomness. AaAaAaA *poof*
