Biography

Homsar is a parody of Homestar Runner. It is unclear why he acts in what can be best described as a "foolish" manner, but his behavior is generally accepted by the other main characters. He usually only appears in hidden easter eggs (e.g., Homsar Main Page, his character tape, Downloads easter egg, etc.), but sometimes he'll appear in a regular toon or Strong Bad Email. He is often quoted by Homestar Runner fans, as his few appearances are often accompanied by what some believe to be cute little sayings, many of which are nonsensical or old fashioned.

Character Video Transcript

{Page Title: The Hand-Me-Down Clown!} {Places: The Field}

{The background is upside-down throughout the video, with the blue sky on the bottom of the screen and the green grass at the top.}

HOMSAR: AaAaAaAaAaAaA! Hi, Wonder Mike! I'm Homsar! The captain of the gravy train. {bowler hat pops up and turns into a train conductor's hat} Climb aboard! {hat returns to normal} I've brought my best foot flowered... Pshoooo! (Homsar's hat slides down the back of his head, then snaps back once the "Pshoooo!" sound is over) Sure beats breaking up with me. Don't look now! I'm just a friendly reminder. AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA! {runs around screen backwards and ends up at the top, upside down} Think I won the Powerball.

Fun Facts

  • "Wonder Mike" is a member of The Sugar Hill Gang, famous for the song "Rapper's Delight." In the beginning of "Rapper's Delight", Wonder Mike says "I am Wonder Mike and I like to say hello", so Homsar saying "Hi, Wonder Mike" could possibly be a response. Also, the Wonder Mike was a 1970s wireless microphone with a built-in FM transmitter (one tuned into a station on the left end of the dial and he or she could hear him or herself on the radio if he or she was within about ten feet of said radio).
  • "Think I won the Powerball" is a reference to the multistate Powerball Lottery, which is known for having large jackpots.
  • The font used on Homsar's shirt is Bauhaus 93, the same one used in the background of the "Come on in" and "Watch Intro" page.
  • Homsar's character page is the only one with background music.
  • Homsar has the unique ability to have his hat return to him if it flies off or falls off, even upside down, except when he was glued to Marzipan in the email origins. He also appeared to lose this ability when transformed into Modestly Hot Homsar.
  • Homsar's nonsensical dialogue is nonetheless grammatically correct. This is a trait most commonly found in schizophrenia and is referred to as "word salads."
