[edit] WTF

In that case, he interrupted himself, which this article doesn't seem to cover. --DorianGray 21:13, 9 May 2007 (UTC)


STRONG BAD: {typing} So let's review. Fact 1: Ehgh--

{Pull out to Homestar Runner sitting on the desk, facing away from Strong Bad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {speaking quietly} I want my own cartoon, Strong Bad.

...from the facts. -DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra

I put back the one from trevor the vampire. The joke here is simply that a word is interrupted; it's not important that it be by another character (one time it's caused by the power going out). There are at least two other cases where we know what the word is going to be before Strong Bad is interrupted, so the joke is not dependent on the rest of the sentence being unknown. — It's dot com 21:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

[edit] add

Maybe add a section for other characters. Here's an example:

WHAT'S HER FACE:I've had my driver's license for a year-

CHEERLEADER:Stop saying words.

[edit] This ain't TVTropes, bub.

I notice this article is self demonstration, as it cuts off the word computer. While this is admittably funny, I think it is far too informal. Self Demonstrating Articles may be a legitimate category on Television Tropes and Idioms, but not probably here. Shall we remove it?--Jellote wuz here 22:07, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Why can't it be done here? - 22:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
We want the reader to be informed. A punch line here or there is okay, but cutting off a paragraph for a pun may not be. What do you think, admins? Is that up to our standards?--Jellote wuz here 22:43, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
There's nothing about the page as it is that detracts from the information presented. It's pretty clear from the context what's being said. So this way, the reader is just as informed, and slightly more amused, than they would be the other way. — Defender1031*Talk 22:47, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
