Overlapping Voices

"Doom doom doom doom."
"Doodle-um-doom."
"DOODLE-DA-DOO-DIDDLE!"
"The system is down."

Occasionally in the Homestar Runner body of work, characters will start one word or phrase before they've finished the one before it, creating an overlap in their voice. This most often occurs in Strong Bad's email intros.
