They asked me to come out here and introduce you to W-Zero-Zero-t-stock to lay down some ground rules to keep you nerds in line. First of all, I would like every male wearing a fedora to punch themself in the face. Those things were never cool and never looked good on you. Thank you.

There's a lot of machines missing gears out there right now. Poor, defenseless machines with no gears. For Pete's sake, put 'em back, steampunkers. All right, now, Browncoats, in the crowd, where my Browncoats at? Oh, Browncoats, that's right, listen up. Your ''Firebug'' show is never ever coming back. Just calm down. Pretty sure that show ''Castle'' is the spiritual sequel. Oh yeah, this one isn't so much a rule as it is a question: can anybody explain Homestuck to me?

STRONG BAD: Hello, my name is Strong Bad, and I'm from 2002. Ask your parents. They asked me to come out here and introduce you to W-Zero-Zero-t-stock to lay down some ground rules to keep you nerds in line. First of all, I would like every male wearing a fedora to punch themself in the face. Those things were never cool and never looked good on you. Thank you. Uh, also a notice to all of you steampunk people out there. Uh, look, I really appreciate all the time and craftsmanship that goes into those costumes, and those cool ray guns you've got, but look. There's a lot of machines missing gears out there right now. Poor, defenseless machines with no gears. For Pete's sake, put 'em back, steampunkers. All right, now, Browncoats, in the crowd, where my Browncoats at? Oh, Browncoats, that's right, listen up. Your Firebug show is never ever coming back. Just calm down. Pretty sure that show Castle is the spiritual sequel. Oh yeah, this one isn't so much a rule as it is a question: can anybody explain Homestuck to me?

{Homestar appears onscreen, also wearing a Fez. He is likewise not animated while speaking.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Strong Bad, watcha doing?

STRONG BAD: Shut up, I'm just talking to the nerds here.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, I'm a nerd. Check me out, I've even got my smartphone.

STRONG BAD: You don't have any — there's nothing smart about you! What kind of smartphone do you have?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I've got... a Palm Pilot and... a Blackberry and... a Zuuuuune... player. I've got Goo-gull Glass.

STRONG BAD: All right, go away Homestuck.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okay, bye!

{Homestar disappears.}

STRONG BAD: All right, we should probably let them get the show started. So, without further adieu, ladies, gentlemen, geeks, nerds, Fetts (both Jango and Boba), slave Leias, cinnamon bun Leias, Hoth Leias, Bespin Leias, brick layas...

{Homestar appears onscreen.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I like Lobot.

{Homestar disappears.}

STRONG BAD: Please give it up for the man who apparently Tweets with each beat of his heart! {The words "Wil Wheaton" appear.} Hwil Hweaton!

{Screen fades to black}

STRONG BAD: Everybody get your wheat on!

{Wil Wheaton enters.}

Fun Facts

"Those things were never cool and never looked good on you."

Explanations

  • w00tstock is a live variety show created by Adam Savage, Wil Wheaton, and Paul and Storm of Da Vinci's Notebook.
  • Steampunk is a science-fiction subgenre based on technology from the nineteenth century. It is popular in nerd circles.
  • Fedoras are hats with a pinched crown. While they were briefly popular with hipsters in the naughts, they quickly fell out of favor and are now seen as a joke among most nerds.
  • "Firebug" is a reference to the TV show Firefly (whose fans are called Browncoats). It was very popular among fans and critics, but its audience was meager and thus the show was canceled after only one season. Strong Bad goes on to say that Castle succeeded it in spirit since Nathan Fillion starred in both shows.
  • Mispronouncing Wil Wheaton as "Hwil Hweaton" is a joke from this scene of Family Guy (which itself was a takeoff on minor cartoon sexuality content warning this joke).

Trivia

Remarks

  • Palm Pilots were referenced previously in Where's The Cheat, referred to as a Pom Pilot.
  • While Palm products continued to be sold until 2011, the Palm Pilot was released in 1997, making it extremely outdated compared to the other devices he lists. Technically, the Palm Pilot is actually a PDA. Similarly, the Zune is a media player.

Goofs

  • When Homestar is on-screen, a piece of Strong Bad's eye is missing.
