The current time is...

Strong Bad Clock is a clock available in the Downloads section of the site. It features an LCD Strong Bad, who speaks your computer's time in your choice of one of three voices:

  • Plain
  • Angry
  • Soothing

You can also set up an alarm so Strong Bad can alert you so you don't miss any appointments.

This download was made available after the email caper, where Homestar wonders what time it is and guesses that it is three in the afternoon. It is quite possible that The Brothers Chaps wanted Homestar to be able to determine the current time and use that in the email dialog, but were limited by time and technology. The next step was to have this clock download. This download is Windows only, however you can use the website's version, which is not a standalone program, on a Mac.
