Secretly hangin' out

Strong Bad heads to the comic book convention. Why? To make fun of nerds, of course!

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, The Cheat, Homestar Runner, Strong Sad, The Poopsmith, The King of Town (Easter egg)

Places: Booth 101, The King of Town's Booth (Easter egg)

Date: September 5, 2005

Running Time: 4:00

Page Title: Con as in Convention!



(Strong Bad and The Cheat are seen behind a booth with a banner saying "TROGDOR-Con" above them.)

STRONG BAD: All right, so here we are at Trogdor-Con! Got booths set up, lookin' good! So, The Cheat—these cons... what exactly is gonna go on here?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Geeks and nerds?! That doesn't sound like anything I wanna be a part of!

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Ladies in skimpy sci-fi costumes! That sounds like everything I wanna be a part of! Are you sure they're in the same place as the geeks and nerds? That doesn't make any sense. Ladies in skimpy outfits should be hanging out with me... and to a lesser degree football players and rappers. Not geeks, nerds, or any of their smelly brethren.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, I'll see it when I believe it.

{Homestar Runner walks up. He has a paper star taped over his normal star and is wearing a beanie with propeller over his usual cap.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oooh, Booth 101! My favorite booth! Hey, guess who I'm supposed to be!

STRONG BAD: Um, Homestar Runner?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, you got it! First try! Was it my star or my propeller cap that gave it away?

STRONG BAD: It was your unbelievably loose grasp on the world around you.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, I guess I do have one of those. Hey, what kind of cool stuff do you guys have here? Got any pewter figurines or maybe some magna?

STRONG BAD: Nope, just hangin' out and seeing what walks by.

HOMESTAR RUNNER Oh, I can walk by! Here, watch! {Walks off right side of the screen and reappears at left} Left, right, left, right, right, right, no-left, right, left, right {exits}

STRONG BAD: So, by the way The Cheat, what are gamertags? Why do we have boxes of them behind us?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: So we're not really selling gamertags?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: What we're really gonna be selling is some of those million sided dies?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: So, us hanging out selling gamertags is a front for us plain ol' hanging out.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: The Cheat - You're a genius! I don't pay you enough!

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Oh right, I don't pay you at all. That's what I meant to say. Let's kick back and see if we can't summon some skimply clad ladies to yee ol' gamertag booth.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat jumps onto the table and plays a horn}

STRONG BAD: Oh! Where'd you get that bad boy?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Booth 709, huh? I have to go check that out!

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: They've got axes and swords!? Man, this con just keeps gettin' better all the time! (Strong Sad enters from left, wearing a pair of bat wings, makeup around his eyes, a tribal-tattoo syle design around his bellybutton, and with his toenails painted black) Oh, and we hit a snag.

STRONG SAD: What are you guys doing here?

STRONG BAD: Hangin' out. Don't tell nobody, but secretly we're just hangin out.

STRONG SAD: But didn't it cost money to get a booth?

STRONG BAD: Look, I don't know where The Cheat got 500 bucks or where your missing 500 bucks is. All I know is that we're hanging out here at TrogdorCon '97! Or in your case, Trog-dorkon '97.

STRONG SAD: It's not called TrogdorCon and it's 2005!

STRONG BAD: It might be for you, but {pause} you're a butt.

STRONG SAD: That's a good 'un, Strong Bad. Okay, I'm gonna go buy some anime!

STRONG BAD: It's called japanimation! Least it was last time I checked, which was 1987. {The Poopsmith walks by in shadow in his Sleestak costume.} I don't know about all this The Cheat. Maybe it's time we filled up that horn of yours with pea soup and tried to shoot it all the way over to that Godzilla guy's booth.

THE CHEAT: {holds up a can of pea soup and the horn. Strong Bad and him run off.}

Easter Eggs

  • Clicking the "gamertag?" sign will result in this:

THE KING OF TOWN:{drenched in pea soup} Ohhh, somebody picked the wrong authorized Godzilla reseller to mess with today!

  • Click on the dot on "endeth" to see Strong Bad criticising people's costumes.

STRONG BAD: Hey, loindcloth, please to be putting on more clothes... Ugh... like five or six... more clothes...


STRONG BAD: Oh, what’s up, ironic costume? I suppose you think you’re cooler than everyone here! Well guess what: You’re also here. At the comic book convention.


STRONG BAD: I never thought I’d see the day where a tattoo was a bad thing, but you madam, have shown me the light.


STRONG BAD: Just for fun I think I’m gonna start throwing boxes of gamer tags at dudes wearin' kilts.


STRONG BAD: The fact that your costume is accurate down to the tiniest detail does not change the fact that that tv show sucked.


STRONG BAD: Man if I see another person in a diaper...


STRONG BAD: Oh, hello Rotunda! Your physique certainly merits you wearing that leather bikini and fishnet hose.

Fun Facts


  • Instead of "magna" (Latin for "great"), Homestar was probably trying to say "manga", which is the print equivalent of anime.


  • Strong Bad has been shown paying The Cheat in lackey, albeit with pencil shavings.
  • This is the longest "short" to date, and is similar in size to two recently released "toons."

Inside References

  • The Poopsmith's Sleestak costume was first seen in "Pumpkin Carve-nival".
  • The King of Town is shown to hate peas in different town.
  • Strong Bad mentions 1987 as being the last time he checked whether anime was the same as japanimation.
  • "Trog-dorkon" is a reference to studying, in which Strong Bad tells Roy to "quit being such a dork-on."
