This article is about the word itself. For the substance that The Poopsmith shovels, see Whatsit.
"I like-a to say, 'Holy 94% of teens would go into panic if Justin Beiber was on a 9999 foot building about to kill himself. Copy and paste if you are one of the 6% who bought popcorn, a chair, and shouted JUMP!!!!!'"

The word "crap" is a prominent running gag of the Homestar Runner universe. The word itself is often used as a substitute for vulgarity, and it often describes things that Strong Bad and other characters find stupid or offensive. In addition, Strong Bad has become infamous for the phrase "Holy crap!", an exclamation he frequently used early in his evolution, but not so much today. In fact, Strong Bad currently voices his displeasure openly whenever he receives an email signed with the word "crap". While Strong Bad typically uses "Holy crap!" or "Crap for brains", Homestar Runner, usually in mockery of Strong Bad's tendencies, prefers the term "crapface".
