*'''Gent Delabor, Sr.''', the CEO and Chief Executive Officer of Thorax Corporation, LLC,,., the CFO of Global Stardom Entertainment, and Webmaster of Second Income Stream dot com. He appears to run Delabor family affairs, which he manages from his parents' basement. Gent is even more pushy and money-grubbing than his relatives. Gent believes himself to be a genius, though in reality he is stupid, arrogant, and even abusive to his brother, Leg. He also believes himself to be more popular than he really is, claiming to receive about 300,000 emails a day. Gent really receives only about 3 a day (most of the time from himself sent to remind himself to pick up more grecian formula) and claims that this lack of emails is because his [[Wikipedia:Microsoft Outlook|Outlook]] is screwed up. Gent displays his low intelligence in many ways, once even going so far as to buy a $643 plane ticket to the town of Awe, Mississippi, just to try and meet someone named PuckHead0 who sent him an email which stated that he (PuckHead0) was in awe.

*'''Rode Delabor/DeLabor''', Thorax's marketing consortium. Rode is apparently Gent's chief lackey and business partner. Rode spells his last name as "DeLabor", which he claims is not because of an inability to type/read/speak the English Language(TM), but because he just thinks it makes his name look "Peruvian". Rode claims that he grew up in the farm fields of Frederick, Maryland, U.S.A., dreaming of INDUSTRY and then eventually left (because of INDUSTRY) to go to the big city, leaving behind his alcoholic father and his misanthropic mother. These claims, however, are all lies, and it's clear that Rode doesn't like his parents very much.

*'''Leg Delabor''', lovelorn, legible bachelor and social gadabout who sells a series of self-help tapes. Like Rode, he is one of Gent's partners. Leg is frequently the target of Gent and Rode's scorn, derision, and ridicule. It is unknown if he is actually biologically related to the other Delabors, as Gent claims that they "got him from the gypsies in 19$7". Gent has made Leg sign no less than 35 contracts, the 28th of which legally, mentally, and physically bound Leg to THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,. in legal matrimony with the strongest of legal solvents and tapes, preventing Leg from having relationships with, among other people and things, females. Violations of this contract are punishable by up to 12 times in prison or 2 hours in the hall closet (whichever comes first). Gent even claims to have beaten the ever-loving crap out of Leg for about 2 and a half minutes when he found Leg emailing a female named Adrian.

Although he seems to believe that most of the time people tend to pick on the new guy, but that the fellows at the Thorax "ofice" have been nothing but helpful, and even mentions that Gent Delabor himself pointed him in the direction of the men's room after he had been holding it in for the first three days of his job. He is perpetually on his fifth day of work at Thorax, as he mentions that it had been yesterday when the "men's room" event happened. Sted looks up to the other Delabors, especially Gent, but the others think of him as "WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!" (which they claim is their way of saying "Welcome, friend. Don't steal any of our stuff.").

-Repeat until optimum Stardom is achieved.
 +
 +
It's really that easy! Do it from home, in your spare time, or whenever
 +
we call you! If you tell one friend, that's only one check. But if you
 +
tell 12 friends, that's at least 5 CHECKS!! Imagine, spend money you never
 +
even earned and live like a true Burger King!
 +
 +
They say 'proof is in the pudding,' but we hate pudding! Here are
 +
some quotes:
 +
 +
Gary Pantselection won't stop going:
 +
 +
"The Stardom is dripping through my hands!
 +
Somebody get me a bowl!!"
 +
 +
E.L. Fudge commands:
 +
 +
"I called 911 and they never even SHOWED UP!
 +
Thanks THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,.!!"
 +
 +
Low-Grade Fuel Substitute cries out:
 +
 +
"The trap is set. When Stardom comes traipsing
 +
up the back steps, I'm entitled by law to beat it
 +
to death with a length of lead pipe!"
 +
 +
Don't worry about signing up! There's nowhere to sign. In fact, we're
 +
coming over right now! Just breath deeply and give in to the soft,
 +
mustard-stained bosom of Total Stardom.
 +
 +
Help us put the 'Delab' back in 'Delabor'!

It is unknown whether they are the samples from Strong Bad Emails [[monster truck]] and [[fingers]] or if they are the full versions on the [[Strong Bad Sings|Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits]] album.

watch it all slip away
Our Gentle Staph.

Thorax Corporation, LLC,,. is a fictional company created by The Brothers Chaps, primarily Matt Chapman. Thorax originated as a joke Web site created by The Brothers Chaps, and the URL to this site is found in one of the Fortune Cookies. They are a fictional crudely run company offering "Total Stardom", though this is not always the subject on some of the pages. The site is filled with typos, misspellings, and sometimes swears.

Thorax Corporation is helmed by Gent Delabor and its staff seemingly consists entirely of members of the Delabor family. The corporation is a division of Second Income Stream dot com in conjugation with GLOBAL STARDOM ENTERTAINMENT.

Thorax Corporation is located in Mundelow, PA.

Through its division, Thorax Legitimate, Thorax Corporation does frequent business with Lem Sportsinterviews. The movies he has written for them include Litigation Jackson and The Peasant's Quest Movie.

[edit] The Delabor Family

The Delabors are a family of pushy, money-grubbing corporate bigwigs with a tenuous grasp on the English language. Gent, Rode, and Leg are probably brothers; their relation to the others is unclear. Delabors mentioned on the Thorax website include:

Gent Delabor, Sr.
  • Gent Delabor, Sr., the CEO and Chief Executive Officer of Thorax Corporation, LLC,,., the CFO of Global Stardom Entertainment, and Webmaster of Second Income Stream dot com. His age is hinted between 18 and 65. He appears to run Delabor family affairs, which he manages from his parents' basement. Gent is even more pushy and money-grubbing than his relatives. Gent believes himself to be a genius, though in reality he is stupid, arrogant, and even abusive to his brother, Leg. He also believes himself to be more popular than he really is, claiming to receive about 300,000 emails a day. Gent really receives only about 3 a day (most of the time from himself sent to remind himself to pick up more grecian formula) and claims that this lack of emails is because his Outlook is screwed up. Gent displays his low intelligence in many ways, once even going so far as to buy a $643 plane ticket to the town of Awe, Mississippi, just to try and meet someone named PuckHead0 who sent him an email which stated that he (PuckHead0) was in awe.
Rode DeLabor
  • Rode Delabor/DeLabor, Thorax's marketing consortium. Rode is apparently Gent's chief lackey and business partner. Rode spells his last name as "DeLabor", which he claims is not because of an inability to type/read/speak the English Language(TM), but because he just thinks it makes his name look "Peruvian". Rode claims that he grew up in the farm fields of Frederick, Maryland, U.S.A., dreaming of INDUSTRY and then eventually left (because of INDUSTRY) to go to the big city, leaving behind his alcoholic father and his misanthropic mother. These claims, however, are all lies, and it's clear that Rode doesn't like his parents very much.
Leg Delabor
  • Leg Delabor, lovelorn, legible bachelor and social gadabout who sells a series of self-help tapes. Like Rode, he is one of Gent's partners. Leg is frequently the target of Gent and Rode's scorn, derision, and ridicule. It is unknown if he is actually biologically related to the other Delabors, as Gent claims that they "got him from the gypsies in 19$7". Gent has made Leg sign no less than 35 contracts, the 28th of which legally, mentally, and physically bound Leg to THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,. in legal matrimony with the strongest of legal solvents and tapes, preventing Leg from having relationships with, among other people and things, females. Violations of this contract are punishable by up to 12 times in prison or 2 hours in the hall closet (whichever comes first). Gent even claims to have beaten the ever-loving crap out of Leg for about 2 and a half minutes when he found Leg emailing a female named Adrian.
WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!
  • Sted Delabor, who works for Gent in an office cubicle, or "ofice-cubikle", as he says. He is the the "new guy" at work. He is the other Delabors' "3rd cousin-in-law twice divorced". Although he seems to believe that most of the time people tend to pick on the new guy, but that the fellows at the Thorax "ofice" have been nothing but helpful, and even mentions that Gent Delabor himself pointed him in the direction of the men's room after he had been holding it in for the first three days of his job. He is perpetually on his fifth day of work at Thorax, as he mentions that it had been yesterday when the "men's room" event happened. Sted looks up to the other Delabors, especially Gent, but the others think of him as "WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!" (which they claim is their way of saying "Welcome, friend. Don't steal any of our stuff.").
  • El Delabor, the "mystical, phantom Delabor", who occasionally writes produkt offers for Gent. Gent used to just think that he was Rode in a sheet.
  • Mark Delabor, Thorax's webmaster and a spokesman for Second Income Streak dot com.
  • Regular Size Delabor ("Reg"), probably one of Gent's four children, born on January 1, 1994 at St. Monty's Animal Clinic. He is property of Thorax Corporation, LLC,,. He weighs 9 lbs 9 oz 9 oz and has a height of 4 or 5 (no unit of measurement is given). His temperament is fuggy.
  • Patricia Delabor-Jones, a shift manager and one of Leg's customers.
  • Granpa Delabor, The other Delabors' grandpa. He warns "when El Delabor comes for you, it's time to pay the piper."

[edit] Total Stardom Scheme

THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,. is SORRY!

SORRY YOU HAVEN'T PAID US YET!!

That's right! We're sick and tired of waiting for your money! 
So we're going to make it so YOU DON'T HAVE A CHOICE!

How you might ask? By offering you the STARDOM OF THE LIFETIME!!

Our Stardomineers(TM) have been schemeing for hours and they've 
finally come up with the solution we both need, a true Stardom 
Scheme that'll fix you good! Listen to this crap!

Elvybody wants that new deck, that old porch 911, or that hideous
veranda across the street. Who wouldn't? Well now you're thyme has
come! There's no reason for you to pass this up. We could say we'll
cut up your family, but then we'd go to PRISON! Why resist? Open your
arms slowly, so as not to startle us, and let our Stardom come boring
into you. 

Here's how it works:

-Tell a fiend about THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,.
-Lie to them until they give you a check made out to Gent Delabor, Sr.
-Send us that check (US Dollars only! Canadian currency will be spit
 on and returned!)
-We'll cross out the amount your friend wrote and write down how 
 much we really want.
-Now it's your turn!
-Try and grow a third arm.
-Take one of your own blank checks and make it out to yourself.
-Now cross out the amount you wrote and write down how much you 
 really want.
-Take that check TO THE BANK!!
-Repeat until optimum Stardom is achieved.

It's really that easy! Do it from home, in your spare time, or whenever
we call you! If you tell one friend, that's only one check. But if you 
tell 12 friends, that's at least 5 CHECKS!! Imagine, spend money you never
even earned and live like a true Burger King!

They say 'proof is in the pudding,' but we hate pudding! Here are 
some quotes:

Gary Pantselection won't stop going:

"The Stardom is dripping through my hands!
Somebody get me a bowl!!"

E.L. Fudge commands:

"I called 911 and they never even SHOWED UP!
Thanks THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,.!!"
 
Low-Grade Fuel Substitute cries out:

"The trap is set. When Stardom comes traipsing
up the back steps, I'm entitled by law to beat it
to death with a length of lead pipe!"

Don't worry about signing up! There's nowhere to sign. In fact, we're 
coming over right now! Just breath deeply and give in to the soft, 
mustard-stained bosom of Total Stardom.

Help us put the 'Delab' back in 'Delabor'!

Program: "The Sky's the Limit!"

Folks, Gent here. Ordinarily, I write all the PRODUKTS(TM) but this week we have a 
guest writer. For years we here at THORAX CORPORATION LLC,,. have heard rumors of 
mystical, phantom Delabor. I used to just think it was Rode in a sheet, but here is 
CONCRETE (wink!) proof that there is such a Delabor. And he's right on the money. In
fact, I'm making a check out to him right now. Lady and Gentleman, I give you...

EL DELABOR

  No matter who you are(unless you are Gent), where you live(sorry
  Tennessee) or what your sex(as long as it is male), age(must <=18 and >=65)
  or race(as long as it is not "Other") is by the time you finish reading this
  special article, you will know:

  * How to start a proven money making business that requires no
    inventory, no shipping and no employees within 7 days,
    guaranteed!(definition of guaranteed = not true)
    -- i.e. employees without 7 days will be exempt from prosecution

  * How to get a $300 professionally designed Web Site for FREE! Yes, that's
    right a $300 pro size for free. Just type HTML, then hit CTRL-ALT-DEL, it's
    just that simple!

  * How to Quadruple your sales in 30 days regardless of your business! Your
    business regards will now stream at a rate of 3 per 1. Quadruple the
    market!@

  * How to stay at home and get paid outrageously for it( make sure your
    Mom's purse or jewelry box is handy)!

[edit] Miscellaneous

[edit] mp3s

There is a directory titled "mp3s" in the root directory of the site. According to archives in the Wayback Machine, the songs Because, It's Midnite and Moving Very Slowly by Limozeen and Taranchula respectively were originally located here, but removed sometime after September 26th, 2003. It is unknown whether they are the samples from Strong Bad Emails monster truck and fingers or if they are the full versions on the Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits album. After the two songs were removed, many new tracks unrelated to Homestar Runner were added in.

These were songs done by Matt Chapman while he was in high school or college. Under "mp3s" there are songs by the rap group 2 Copies Sealed, later renamed 3-Dee. "All Star Rapper" and "What's the 411" were mentioned in the DVD commentary for rampage, while Poot-Slap has been used in The Luau, and "3-D Booty" was referenced in Fish Eye Lens. The TNY directory contains songs done by his old indie rock band The New You, a few of which are covers of Sebadoh and Guided by Voices. The Mark Margarine directory contains songs similar to the ones under TNY, as well as covers of Archers of Loaf, Flaming Lips, Built to Spill, Daniel Johnston, David Bowie, and Mercury Rev.
