Homestar Runner and Homestar Runner's Relationship
From Homestar Runner Wiki
According to Strong Bad, Homestar Runner seems to have an "unbelievably loose grasp on the world around [him]". As a result, Homestar will frequently become confused and forget who he is. He then interacts with himself as though he is a different and separate person. This includes talking to himself, looking for himself, writing notes to remind himself who he is, insulting himself, and even fighting himself. When he's speaking as Cardboard Marzipan, she seems smarter than Homestar and mentions things that Homestar himself wouldn't be expected to think of, at least consciously.
