Talk:How do you type with boxing gloves on?

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Ding! How do you type with boxing gloves on? 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.

  • As I understand it, Strong Bad does not type with boxing gloves on his hands, his hands are boxing gloves the same way Homestar, Marzipan, Homsar, and the King of Town don't have arms. -- The Real Zajac 20:20, 4 Jan 2005 (PST)


[edit] It all becomes clear...

It all becomes crystal clear after watching SBEmail 37, Dullard. Go on, watch it.

Stinkoman's question would probably be "How do you type with fighting gloves on?' right?
I think it would be more like, "How do you type with shiny red balls on your hands?" -- Super Sam 09:48, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
More like "What's that? What's THAAAAT??? Some kind of special powers? Or maybe a challenge!?" :) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 23:15, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Probably resulting in *ahem* DOUBLE DELETED! User:FalconPuncher

[edit] Title

Is there any way to shorten this? It is a pretty awkward title. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:54, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

It's not that bad. Before shortening, Count Longardeaux's Book was way longer. It took up two lines. I like it the way it is, but I will present a suggestion anyway: Typing with Boxing Gloves. --DorianGray
Aw, this is an awesome title! If you need to shorten it in an article, you can always use a piped link. But this really isn't something that gets linked to every day. For an absurdly long title, see this page. — It's dot com 02:03, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Holy crap. Nevermind. Just never let us get a title that long. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 15:10, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

I know this discussion was over a month ago, but I say that I like this title. — talk Bubsty edits 02:06, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Theories

I think Strong Bad has Technokinesis or short range Telekinesis. - BlackWidower 22:59, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

no, he probly has one of those thigs that allows u to type by talking into it, which would also explain how the text changes when he changes tone, something about that was in one of the commentaries, cant remember which one it was

Or maybe it is just some running gag in a dumb kid show about dumb animal characters. Geez, not even I am this worked up over stuff like that.
Or maybe this conversation is over 3 years old and you ARE getting worked up about it... — Defender1031*Talk 22:46, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
The main problem with the talking theory is that in pom pom, he talked clear English and random letters still appeared on the screen. I think he just types normally. I mean, try typing with oven mitts or boxing gloves. I bet you can type normally. User:doctorwho295 7 March 2010

[edit] Caps in Title

Do we really need to capitalize every word in this title? How about only the first word, ala What are you supposed to be? Has Matt? (talk) 03:35, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] How he types W.B.G.O

I think I know how he types With boxing gloves on. When he goes to his compy/lappy/tandy he takes them off and keeps them on top of his hands with the string. He probably also puts his fingers right on the keys so nobody sees his fingers. NO!!! PLEASE... DON'T SHOOT!!! Tampo (T/C) AND SOMEONE GET THiS FREAKiN CURSOR AWAY FROM ME!!!!! 23:54, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

But boxing gloves are his hands... Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:56, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Featured

Shouldn't the {{featuredarticle}} be on this article?--H*Bad 19:47, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] SMS

Would it be appros to add the reference in the end of virus where he mimicks "How do you text with boxing gloves on?"? MetaStar 02:40, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Sure, why not? We list every other specific appearance. =3 --DorianGray

[edit] Homestar Quiz

In the Homestar Quiz, Strong Bad shows his real hands. Shouldn't that be in this article, too? (just thought I'd ask first, before adding it myself) kartoffel (D.C.) 19:01, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Those are oven mitts. -- Tom 19:03, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] The Cheat

Doesn't The Cheat type with, uh.... flippers? SaltyTalk! 18:17, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

pws, you mean... paws, bubs has fliiper arms

[edit] PennRadio Homestar (Strongbad) fan

Just wanted to mention that someone called up PennRadio (, a nationally broadcasted radio station hosted by Penn from Penn and Teller, and asked the question today "How do you type with boxing gloves on your hands".

When the show shows up on their website for download, I'll add the link here. But the broadcast date for it was "November 3rd, 2006".

Radio Sightings would be the place for this... --phlip TC 01:06, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Renamage

Per Talk:Painting_of_a_Guy_with_a_Big_Knife#Capitalization I would like to suggest that this page be moved to How do you type with boxing gloves on?. However, a redirect already exists in that page and since I'm not an admin, I cannot move this page into the redirect (with a rather colorful, history ); how is it that a troll noticed something we hadn't!? Anyway, I digress, as usual. I'm not sure if the capitalization issue has been completely settled, but I think there is enough agreement for this one to go ahead. Questions? Comments? Free Samples? --Stux 18:34, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm in agreement with all lowercase, aka How do you type with boxing gloves on?. Dr. Clash 21:33, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
I was the one who suggested that like a friggin' year ago... but whatever, I'm still all for it. Has Matt? (talk) 23:42, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
I just found this suggestion a minute ago. Is it too late to say I agree? Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:42, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
Not at all — this was a great forgotten suggestion, so I went ahead and moved the article. Trey56 02:37, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Pom Pom

Would this be the right article to mention that in pom pom he couldn't type blindfolded? --Philip8o

[edit] Unnecessary Passage

I don't think the examples of him typing with one hand are especially relevant- I'm doing so now; and there's even a special Dvorak format for it. Would anyone mind if I snipped them? — (Talk | contribs) 00:55, April 23, 2009 (left unsigned)

Yes, I would mind. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 06:04, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
I'd say that this post by the anonymous user requires more than just a terse one-line response. An explanation as to why it belongs there or not is in order. So, Michael, why do you think the information should stay? To be clear: I'm not taking sides. I'm just establishing a discussion. --Stux 06:14, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Dangeresque 3

Where's the refrence in Dangeresque 3: TCP from? User:FalconPuncher

[edit] new hands

Does new hands count as a variation? After all, that e-mail is about about his hands/gloves.

It would count if his typing was mentioned at all. But alas, it was not. StrongAwesome 03:18, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

[edit] It's so obvious

Haven't you seen all the evidence!?!? He clearly types with a combination of his thumbs and lightly tapping the keys with the top part. I rest my case. --Lumpster702 02:06, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
