This article is about the word itself. For the substance The Poopsmith shovels, see Whatsit.

The word "crap" is a prominent part 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.
