Revision as of 19:55, 21 September 2005

I'm not happy with the "Homsar Quotes" section. It's not uniform, it's not objective and it's not needed. Who's with me? --Upsilon

Not me- I think all main characters should have it, especially Homsar! -- Asploder

There. Deleted Homsar Quotes, got rid of all the quotes on his page. He already has his own little section in Quotes. He isn't that special. He needs only one page of quotes, just like everyone else. -- FireBird-Talk

Do we realy need the MSN Orbit page of the guy who emailed Strong Bad? It doesn't even mantion Homsar!

Homsar is possibly the best character on HSR. Gotta love that retard! --Anonymous

Have to tell ya, this article is in need of serious rewrite. 213.169.4.137 07:25, 20 Nov 2004 (MST)

rewrite is re-RIGHT

This does need re-written, it says that hi wonder mike is "One of the few references to pop culture on H*R" the whole freaking site references pop culture! please delete that line someone, it is really bugging me. This is a wiki, why don't you remove it? nintendorulez 14:04, 11 Mar 2005 (MST)

A song from the sixties?

Can anyone come up with song references from Homsar's speeches? 'Gravy train' could be a reference to Pink Floyd's 'Have a Cigar' but maybe it's just some of his home-spun wisdom. Also not a direct quote, but 'a million ladies tall' feels sort of like 'half a century high' ala Phil Ochs. Just some random stabs here, it seemed a lot more cohesive in my mind.

"Gravy Train" is a common phrase meaning getting a lot of money (or something along those lines. Also, Have a Cigar was written in 1975, so it's clearly not a song from the sixties.

Move?

I think this article should be renamed Homsar (Character). The email article should be moved to Homsar (email). --ZekeMacNeil 23:43, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

We actually used to have the articles titled that way. Then we changed it to the current setup. The titles you mentioned redirect accordingly. -- Tom 02:25, 16 Jan 2005 (MST)

A Hypothesis About Homsar's Behavior

I have a hypothesis concerning why Homsar behaves the way he does.

I believe that Homsar was drafted and sent to Vietnam in the late sixties ("I'm a song from the sixties." could be a reference to this because many songs in the sixties were about the war in Vietnam) and there he witnessed some horrible things that resulted in a dreadful case of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To escape his flashbacks after retuning home he began taking copious amounts of LSD and rapidly became psychologically dependant on it. After a decade or so of this heavy use, Homsar cleaned himself up; but the side effects from the long-term LSD use compounded by his PTSD cause him to be detached from reality much to this day in the form of incorrect visual identification of objects, mental incongruity, and flashbacks to Vietnam (explaining Homsar's frequent screaming episodes).

Some might argue with me about my analysis, saying that Homsar is simply retarded. I admit to you that this might be tempting to say, but if he were truly retarded many of the pop culture references Homsar makes would be near impossible because most forms of retardation limit the individual's vocabulary for such things; and furthermore, retardation does not often result in rampant grammatical structure disjunction and word misapplication, as seen in Homsar's case, especially when compared to the symptoms seen in long-term LSD ex-users.

I know you thought of some big words and obviously spent some time on this, but really- it's just a cartoon. Not everything needs an explanation. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]
Exactly. Interesting hypothesis, but it's a freakin' cartoon!

Course homsar could be based on a figure in the Brother's Chap's life that had those same syndroms. Wedge Antilles

Interesting but unlikely. Homsar is just the standard gibberish-spouting idiot that all cartoons have. The_Pardack

Wow. You really must have thought this out. If people look at this page, they can marvel at it. -Alice

I'm a be an agree: This is pretty unlikely. You sure did spend some good thinking time on it, though. What, did you get bored during math class? :) --65.31.46.157 23:15, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

Wow, you've got too much time on your hands man, it's a cartoon for pete's sake. Besides, this isn't all too likely. He's probably just really weird, I know a dude who acts pretty similar to him in real life. -Ryan

Come on, guys. It's obvious. He's actually a genius that's just trying to hide his true identity by making himself look like a complete moron. It's that simple. -Neverending Soda

My theory is that the head trauma he suffered from the weight dropping on his head gave him some sort of weird amnesiac condition. Check out my full theory here! I command you! --VolatileChemical 09:14, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You're all wrong, Homsar has schizophrenia! --Cocoa

Look, cut the guy some slack. This is a discussion page on an obscure article in the Homestar Runner Wiki - clearly, everyone here has too much time on their hands. Kudos on coming up with a plausible theory, Eli. --mayosolo 04:08, 19 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You got it all wrong. Homsar is a jar of mayonase from the sixties that got left out next to the TV (hense the constant references to old shows) and witnessed the goings on of the kitchen (thus being raised by a cup of coffee). The mayo spoiled and some odd bacteria gegan to grow on it, eventualy evolving into a half-sentient being that can walk and talk, albeit strangely. Given a few centuries, he may hope to attain Homestar's level of inteligence. --The Real Zajac 13:54, 21 Jul 2005 (PDT)

homsar.com

I don't think this should be listed as "may or may not be by the Brothers Chaps". I checked it out on archive.org, and until February of last year it was a blog site entitled "Home Of My Stories And Rants". I wouldn't be surprised if they shut down after they got a lot of misdirected attention from their name, which would explain why the site now just says "go away"

I've removed this from the article. A quick WHOIS confirms it clearly isn't The Brothers Chaps. -- Tom 11:16, 6 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • We're not shut down, we just took a different direction. -John from homsar.com

So, what about Stong Bad? He deserves to be a character... :x

Sensical stuffs

I think this page should have a list of all the stuff Homsar's said that makes sense, like "Uh, yeah, what eeys eet, Strong Bay-ad?" and "I do as ah'm told." for example. What do you guys think? Poopsmith Z

  • No, I don't. It's arguable if what much of Homsar says makes sense (For instance, I think "I do as I'm told" is just Homsarish gibberish despite the fact that it makes some sense in context), and this isn't a page for Homsar quotes—aside from his character transcript (which EVERY character has) this is just a biography page. --Jay (Talk) 17:23, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Homsar Winner?

The idea of Homsar may not have just originated from bad spelling. There is a noticeable resemblance between Homsar and Homeschool Winner. Homsar may or may not have evolved from this character.

VERDICT: This item was overwhelmingly declined, 15–5. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/Homsar.

What happened?

Diddn't we used to have a list of everything Homsar has said? It can't be that hard to maintain, as he has only had 24 appearences to date.--RatherAnnoying
