Strong Bad shows some leg — tape-leg, that is.
This article is about the running gag. For the Strong Bad Email, see tape-leg.

Since the release of the notorious Strong Bad Email, tape-leg has developed into its own recurring inside joke. In the email, a fan named Nicolas asks Strong Bad if his leg is made out of tape, and Strong Bad uncharacteristically dismisses the irreverent question quickly. The email is considered by some to be one of the worst ever, but Strong Bad insists that "the tape-leg is cool." Interestingly, in the email halloweener, duct tape was wrapped around Homestar Runner's legs as part of Strong Bad's demonstration on how to make a Halloween costume of himself.
