[edit] MIT Mystery Hunt Puzzle: I Get Around

[edit] Trogdor at An Ivy school?

  • In preparation for the Harvard-Yale football game of 2005, one of Harvard's anti-Yale T-shirts featured Trogdor-related themes. The front of the shirt, which read "The Game 2005," showed a wing-a-ling John Harvard statue, complete with smoke, fire, and a beefy arm holding a football. The back of the shirt read, "Burninating the Safety Skool, Burninating the Yalies," in reference to the lyrics of "Trogdor!" and the now-disabled "" prank. The letter "Y" and a picture of a bulldog were on fire, in the style of the peasants of Peasantry.
  • At the Yale-Princeton football game halftime show in November, 2004, the Princeton Band announcer was listing villains and the last one on the list was TROGDOR THE BURNINATOR. This show also included a formation based on Email 100: "This joke is of such historical significance that it can only be told in... WIDESCREEN. Left side BWAAAAAH. Right side BWAAAAAAH." (at which the left and right sides of the band formation went wide-screen)
  • Yale Anti-Gravity Society's fall 2004 juggling/fire show was basically an entire Trogdor narrative: one guy, starring as Trogdor, complete with a huge muscular arm and green clothing, played the Strong Bad Sings CD version of "Trogdor!" while breathing fire -- there was also a peasant involved, who, throughout the course of the show, was set on fire like a peasant. The Teen Girl Squad also made an appearance in the performance.

[edit] Strong Bad At The Naval Academy

Before every home football game, the Naval Academy freshmen (known as Plebes) decorate a statue of Tecumseh on the campus in some sort of disguise. Last year for the Navy-Central Michigan game, the monument was painted up as Strong Bad. Below him is written "Go Navy: Fangoriusly Devour C. Michigan". Also, Trogdor can be seen on the side of the statue's base.[1]

The Naval Academy also has the Bear-Sharks as one of their companies.

Under the title Trends the publishers printed what they thought were examples of businesses that could sell hoodies. Alongside a paragraph that failed to mention Homestar Runner itself, a picture of the Strong Bad Hooded Jacket was placed, as seen here.

[edit] Homestar at University of California, Riverside

Dorms at UCR each have themes to make things interesting and to increase hall spirit. On year 2004-2005, the I Building at Pentland Hills had a Homestar theme, where they put up Homestar Runner banners and made Homestar Runner sweatshirts featuring all original art. One sweatshirt had an evil looking The Cheat holding a torch in front, and on the back it had Homestar holding a sword and shield and looking up at Strong Bad who was on Trogdor's head.

[edit] Strong Bad Quote In Horizon Junior/Senior High Yearbook

In a yearbook published in 2005 (by Walsworth Publishing) for a private high school in San Diego, California, a quote from the different town SBemail appeared. A section was labeled "Best Part of the Year" in the book. Under it were quotes from students. One of the quotes was "Beef...stew", a reference to Strong Bad's "Best Thing Ever" from different town when he tried to see if his imagination was broken.

A 5th grade class in Mesita Elementary had a field day mascot similar to Trogdor.

[edit] University of Puget Sound

In the years 2001-2002, a huge Strong Bad could be seen in one of the dorm windows. It was, sadly, stolen and replaced in 2002 with a crying The Cheat holding a sign asking "Have you seen my friend?" When that, too, was stolen, the sign became a Homestar Runner. This was gone within the week. The final sign was a giant Trogdor. Trogdor defied anyone that tried to steal it, and remained there until one student left in 2004.
