A self-paid man



Bubs is the all around fix it man. Running his own concession stand, Bubs is a sharp salesman who will sell anything, including waiting in line, letters of his own sign, half-eaten drumsticks, even beatings. He also sold both of Strong Bad's broken computers (the King of Town now owns the Tandy 400 and Homestar bought the Compy 386, because he wasn't "gonna find a better deal".) It's likely that not all of his dealings are exactly legal, considering his reaction to a practical joke from Strong Bad in lackey. He also loves to dance.

The Brothers Chaps joked that they had to "kill off" Bubs, just like Homeschool Winner, in the Sample of Style video on the DVD.

Character Video Transcript

{Page Title: Bargain Basement Prices!!}

BUBS: Hey there, every peoples. I'm Bubs. I run the concession stand around the way here. I'm a self-made man, I am, I am. I sell hot dogs, chili dogs, slaw dogs, ketchup dogs and mustard dogs. I got drinks, drinks, drinks, candy and snow cones. I can fix everything what needs fixing. Like cars... TVs... marriages. Ooh! I can dance, too. Shake it once! Shake it twice, a-gimme little bit o' sugar spice! I guess the word that best describes me is: personality. Umm... because I have a good personality. Okay. I gotta get back to work. Come on by! We're always awesome!
