[edit] Thank God for STUFF

Excluding the "Working For the Weak-End?" entry in Strong Sad's Lament, this is the only time God is ever mentioned on the site, although Strong Sad is simply quoting Dickens.

Arguments for:

Arguments against:

  • Too trivial.
  • Like the fact said, Strong Sad is simply quoting Dickens.
  • "Thank God It's Tuesday at Three-Oh-Two" is a variation of "thank God it's Friday", a common saying.
  • "Excluding another instance, this is the only time..." No. If it's not the only time, it's not the only time. Period.
  • This may not be the only time God will be mentioned, there can always be a cartoon that mentions God later in time. In short, This could be mentioned later on.

[edit] O Holy Something

The "guy" Strong Bad is singing about is likely Jesus, although the origins of Decemberween differ from those of Christmas.

From: A Holiday Greeting

Arguments for:

  • I suppose the reason people reach this conclusion is through the suggestion of association. The association between Decemberween and Christmas (and Christmas and Christianity) is one thing, but the fact that he's singing to the tune of O Holy Night in particular is probably most influential. If he used the tune of Frosty the Snowman, or even a religious carol that didn't feature the line "when Christ was born" so prominently, it's unlikely that many would defend the connection.
  • If this song wasn't about Jesus, then what was so "offending" to Homestar that he had to break it halfway through?
    • Who said Homestar was offended? He broke in and summed up. Perhaps they were just out of time, or if he was offended, Strong Bad's terrible, meandering song would be offense enough.
      • You can see he was offended why his gasping as Strong Bad says that the person was stupid.
  • In the Decemberween song, Decemberween is 55 days after Haloween, which is, Christmas, the holiday celebrating Jesus' birth

Arguments against:

  • The word "born" in the song's current transcript is debated.
  • Even if the word is "born", there is no reason to assume that Strong Bad is singing about any known person at all. He may not even be singing about a person who exists in the Homestar Runner universe (see next argument).
  • It seems more like he's just making up the words as he goes along.
  • It's just explaining the joke.

Additional comments:

  • Commenters and voters should read the talk page for this cartoon; a lot has been said already on this subject.
