The Cheat's Head Exploding
From Homestar Runner Wiki
The Cheat's head seems to explode quite a lot. His face turns black and his hair is pushed back when it happens. This can happen when he gets too excited, worried, confused, or physically shaken. It is likely that the original joke was a satire on the myth that drinking soda pop while eating popping candy causes them to explode, and then the joke turned into a running gag.
