For a brief moment Homestar Runner ruled the Internet. And then cat GIFs happened. THE BLOOD IS ON OUR HANDS, TUMBLR!
After reading this and revisiting the site I’m somewhat convinced that Homestar Runner’s voice is the origin of lolspeak
Homestar Runner is a classic. To this day, my man and I reference it nearly daily. “How was that “skillet nap”?” “Gimmie those dang ice cweams, I’ll FWEEZE ‘IM OUT!” “TROGODORRRRR! Dun dun dun DUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNN”.
I GOT SCROLL BUTTONS LIKE THE DAY IS LONG I GOT SCROLL BUTTONS LIKE THE DAY IS LONG
WE STILL SAY “NO LIGHTSWITCH RAVES!!” KIDDO’S DAD STILL SOMETIMES CALLS HER THE CHEAT. EVERY MORNING I SAY TO MY COWORKER “I WAS RAAAAISSED BY A CUP OF A COFFEE!” HOMESTAR FUCKING RUNNER
One of the few things I’ve done right as a parent is making sure that the kids know all about the intricacies of the Free Country, USA universe. It was really hard to buy the sbemails DVDs at one time, and during that time, none of the “Everything Else” DVDs were in stock at the Homestore either. I HAD TO RECREATE CLASSIC BITS WITH HAND-DRAWN CUTOUTS AND DOING ALL THE VOICES.
To this day, my cat is called The Cheat.
