Ding! Crap is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


[edit] "Crapfully yours" a running gag?

Is this a valid running gag? I wrote up a whole article on it (in particular referencing the email where he finally informed viewers that signing emails in that way was not required) and Jay deleted it in the middle of the night, instead of moving it here. This action is contrary to the idea of Wiki. The article is lost forever now, but at least we can decide if the decision was right and whether it should be reposted.

  • The STUFF page is for Fun Facts, not deleted articles. Anyway, the "crap" page as it formerly existed was very disorganized and included many non sequiturs. And all those redirects were unnecessary even if we'd kept it. --Jay (Talk) 19:07, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • That is a matter of opinion... you haven't given any other Wiki users the chance to see it and decide for themselves. Plus, any issues would probably have been fixed by other users quickly. I think this one deserves a vote, and I'd like to know where to vote on it if not here?
      • Okay, fine. Reinstate Talk:Crap if it suits you. --Jay (Talk) 19:21, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline I don't even need to see the article in question to know what a load of crap it is. Its already noted in the 3 Wishes facts that Strong Bad doesn't like the "crap" signitures. A whole article is overkill. Donny vs Universe
  • Yes, it's a running gag, but I don't think there needs to be a whole article about it. Maybe just list it in the running gags section or something. --Upset_Your_Balance 14:24, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • It is a running gag and deserves its own page, though i agree the one that Jay deleted was poorly done. If 11.01 deserves its own page, crafully yours crap in all of its forms does as well --Tony Stony 14:51, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • DELORTED! Crapfully yours, no. Crap, maybe. Ya, crap is a running gag. Crapfully yours isn't. That's like saying Dear Strong Bad is a running gag! Cheatachu72 00:44, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] New version of "Crap" page

I actually did the work to create a new "Crap" page before noticing that there was already a discussion page on this topic. I made a big effort to ensure that the page is well-organized and useful. Please add to it and further organize the list - in the first draft, I didn't take the time to organize the references chronologically. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 23:59, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Holy.. Umm... Crap! This page existed since June last yeah and I didn't know about it? What the crap? Anyway, good job there Skunk dude. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 16:44, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
Also, amusingly, there's now a Crapfully Yours Running Gag page. Goes to show how the opinions of a wiki can change over time! (See one notstrongorbad's rather purple "Wiki is a liquid" rant back in Oct.) —AbdiViklas 16:59, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
Actually, see the discussion on Talk:Crapfully Yours - I had suggested combining that page with this one, though It's dot com managed to talk me out of that. Looking at the history of Crap (wow, that sounds like an interesting article!), the original version of this page was sorely lacking in both structure and substance, so I don't feel so much like I was duplicating work. :) Thanks for the feedback! — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 17:41, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about what I did in history.TheThin 22:13, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] is crap a real swear word?

Well? Nikolce Kocovski 08:49, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

I would say most people would not call it a swear word, but some might. It is understood as somewhat impolite, though. It's the kind of word you'd expect Strong Bad to say, basically. Heimstern Läufer 08:53, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
The linguistic term is something like "permissible expletive" (although that's not it exactly), and they are a phenomenon of all languages. — It's dot com 08:57, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
More importantly, it's used all the time on the site, so we can use it here too. :) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 18:48, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Mighty Crap, people. Crap is just a filler for a word they can't use on the site.As is Freakin'.See also What in the name of Peter's Sammich.--Gir007 21:21, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Well that all just depends. Like what your parents think of it. For instance, in my household, my parents think of it as a swear word. But I still say it anyways! So in short it all just depends. Sanjuro 21:28, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Good point...It's allowed in my house..My mom says it ALL THE TIME.Strange, huh?--Gir007 23:21, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

But does your mom type with boxing gloves on, Gir? Anyhow, I've lived my life under the impression that "crap was actually more severe than, um, ironicly enough I don't know if I can say "sh*t" on this talk page without offending people. --A Trendy Tote Bag 01:00, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

I can't say for certain whether you'd offend anyone, but nevertheless putting that word on this talk page (and nearly every other talk page on this wiki) is against our policy. Also, this conversation is over ten months old. — It's dot com 03:06, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Crap has 3 meanings. Here is the list Crap 1: Sometimes when people need to poop or dump in the toilet, they say "I need to go take a crap. Crap 2: Crap is often used as a suprisement of something unexpected. Example: "Whoaly crap!" or "What the crap?". Crap 3: Crap is mostly

[edit] Bolding

Would it be a good idea to bold all instances of the word "crap" on the page, so they'll be more noticeable and easier to find? --Trogga 00:48, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Anyone? --Trogga 21:18, 3 December 2007 (UTC)
Nope, we tend not to bold stuff like this, and recently have been removing bold like that to make the pages more standardized. — Defender1031*Talk 21:59, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Give "Cr***y" its own section?

That word seems to be said more frequently than [scrap - s] now. Is it time to add a different section and separate it from "Miscellaneous 'Crap'"? --Charlie Jr. 16:21, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Cr***y?? [scrap - s]?? What, huh? OptimisticFool 16:31, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, just thought I'd be a little appropriate for a while. I'm referring to the fact that "crappy" is currently used more frequently than "crap." --Charlie Jr. 16:35, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

You know, he is right. "Crappy" should be a seperate section. Who agrees with me? — Strongest of the Sads (Talk | contribs) 08:41, 14 June 2019 (UTC) (left unsigned)

Why should they be separated? — Defender1031*Talk 08:56, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Mainly because there are some episodes that uses the word crappy instead of crap, like sbemail206, alternate universe, and Costume Commercial. — Strongest of the Sads (Talk | contribs) 11:11, 14 June 2019 (UTC) (left unsigned)
And? In what way is it unique enough from the basic word to be separated out into its own section? — Defender1031*Talk 11:25, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Agree with Defender. It's not as unique as "Holy crap!" or "What the crap?", and not as common, and thus doesn't deserve a section. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:35, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Ok then.

[edit] What the Crap?

Should "What The Crap" be a separate page? There are variations on it that don't use Crap, such as business trip's "what the sense-make", and it's said frequently enough to be a separate page. "Is a miracle", or no? — (Talk | contribs) 19:53, 5 October 2009 (UTC) (left unsigned)

[edit] Amount of uses in Homestar Runner?

I'm just curious, if anyone is willing to work hard enough unlike me, can someone at least do a "Swear count" type thing to count how many uses of crap is spoken and read (Seperate them). Then put it down on the top part of the article. --Weirdalinstrongbadia 19:37, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Subdivision - remove entirely? different kind?

I'm not sure why the instances on this page are subdivided into Big/Holiday/Sbemail/Other, as the wiki Standards only specify chronological order and this division doesn't provide any particularly helpful insight. I could see it being worth the effort to add subheads for "crap" (and crap derivatives) spoken by characters other than Strong Bad, as he speaks the vast majority of 'em. -- Bleu Ninja 07:43, 8 October 2023 (UTC)
