"Check it out, yo!"

From the modeling DVD commentary:

MATT: I sing that "Can you handle my style no you can't handle my style" song a lot. I think maybe I sang it before it was a Strong Bad Email song even.
MIKE: Probably. You tend to sing songs with lyrics that have "style" in them.
MATT: Styles upon styles, Mike.

The word "style" is frequently used in Homestar Runner, carrying a variety of meanings. Although regularly used with the standard definitions of "manner of doing something" or "design and fashion", "style" is just as often appended to adjectives (in a manner similar to -type) or used as a noun with a positive connotation but indeterminate meaning. Its consistent presence in the vernacular makes it one of the most common word running gags.
