There have been many occurrences of '''Mashing Go/Play''' throughout the [[Homestar Runner (body of work)|Homestar Runner]] body of work.  This phrase generally replaces the term "push" or "press" in relation to a button.  In the southern United States (e.g. Georgia, home of [[The Brothers Chaps]]), "mash" is a common dialect term, so although it has appeared several times in the H*R universe, TBC might not originally have intended for it to become a recurring theme, as they were probably accustomed to the term.

And so, The Cheat mashed play on an extremely expensive jambox.

There have been many occurrences of mashing go/play throughout the Homestar Runner body of work. This phrase generally replaces the term "push" or "press" in relation to a button. In the southern United States (e.g. Georgia, home of The Brothers Chaps), "mash" is a common dialect term, so although it has appeared several times in the H*R universe, TBC might not originally have intended for it to become a recurring theme, as they were probably accustomed to the term.
