From Homestar Runner Wiki
Tape-leg is a recurring inside joke that originated from the appropriately named email tape-leg. A fan named Nicolas asked Strong Bad if his leg was made out of tape, and Strong Bad uncharacteristically dismisses the irreverent question quickly. This email is considered by some to be one of the worst emails ever, but Strong Bad insists that "the tape-leg is cool." Interestingly, in the email halloweener duct tape was wrapped around Homestar's legs as part of Strong Bad's demonstration on how to make a Halloween costume of himself.
