I'm serious about this whole poll thing. And if you haven't seen the site, go now! Here's the page that explains everyone. Or at least the main people.

**to be read in a mental strong sad voice**What? Oh.... well... I guess... i guess i'm strong sad. For more reasons than one, too, I suppose... I kind of have the same character as him, though not depressed like that. The melancholic temperment, you know. Only with a touch of choleric, which SS lacks. And i have an ipod and i like to think... And I guess I tend to talk a lot when no one cares... That's why i talk to trees sometimes. Oh, I remember the time when I was talking to a tree, and there was this one cat in it. I think it was trying to talk to me, something about a contest... **everyone falls asleep**

;) lol. I'm not that bad. Well, i mean, i am strong sad moreso than anyone else; this is true. But how close can anyone get in our limited options of characters? Strong sad's favorite emoticons would be :( and :cry: and my favorites are :eyebrow: :hamburger: :bunny: :banghead: :dance: :cat:... i'm stopping now because i could go on and on with these little dudes. Hey, at least being strong sad is a lot better than being The Cheat. :-p And if you want to argue, be forewarned that SOCRATES is on MY SIDE. So there.

Strong Bad?

Post by EIwing » Tue Jul 15, 2003 4:40 pm

Welll.....
I couldn't help but pick Strong Bad. Not because he's hilarious, not because he wears gloves, but because this guy tries really hard to be awesome, and it just doesn't pan out the way he'd like. That's quite me. :( Hehe, but really! Strong Bad is one of those characters you laugh at, laugh with, and feel bad for (woah, all those prepositional phrases ending with prepositions! Someone smite me!). If I weren't Strong Bad, I'd be The Cheat. He's one little softie with a gold tooth that isn't really as tough as he makes you think.
If you think differently... prove it!
... Just kidding. 8)

You have such a perfect voice to be marzipan, and then you go and choose strong bad. what a shame. You know... actually, Bethany, I think you might actually be the Poopsmith. You're so quiet, you know? You never talk or anything. Susie too. You're both twin Poopsmiths.

It's an interesting question. Some people really don't fit in well with the established personalities. I don't know many people well enough on this forum to psychoanalyze them (or pretend to psychoanalyze, whatever). But I think that whether Steve knows it or not, he'd totally be Pom Pom. Don't you think? Only not round. And less orange. And less bubbling.

(pom pom wearing sunglasses -> :cool:)

Ooh! Ooh! i know! elrabin is the Poopsmith! because he never talks! no, jk. :lol: He currently has eleven whole posts! that's much better than the 28 people signed up who've never posted a thing. They're all poopsmiths.

....... Stephanie, the POOPSMITH?
:( Do I smell that bad?
:( Am I that quiet?
Oh, pish tosh, I'm not quiet. Neither is Sushie. Fine, if I'm not the idiot Strong Bad, I'm...
¬_¬ Marzipan.
" Hi, this is Marzipan. I'm feeling very vivacious today. Leave me a message!"
"Hi, this is Marzipan. I'm just sittin' here in my dark room, thinkin'. Leave me a message."
...So, is she a broom, or... what?

When I was on vacation, I prank called my own answering machine: "Hi, this is marzipan. I'm sittin in my dark room, thinkin. Please leave a message... BEEP" and then got my bro to do stinkoman's message after it. Then he did another one with everybody (he's so good at imitating them it's scary!) then my sister did one as the King of Town. hee hee hee... Too much fun.

I would have the coolness of Pom Pom and the Kingliness of the K o T, only a lot more since i'm high king of the noldor.
Fingolfin beheld the ruin of the Noldor. Filled with wrath and despair he rode forth alone. A madness of rage was upon him; his eyes shone like the eyes of the Valar.
He came alone to Angband and challenged Morgoth to single combat.

And Morgoth came.

On the King of Town's video there's a sheep in the background. Does it count as one of the characters? LOL :o

Did you know that the creators of homestar live solely off of the profit they get from their store? They sold 900 Trogdor shirts the first day!!! And it takes them 15 hours to make a new sb email, apparently, and they do it every sunday. The things you can learn from the newspaper!

Strong Bad gets 7000 emails a day.
