Homestar Runner on NPR

NPR : Strong Bad Walks in Footsteps of Darth, Lex, J.R.

Nice little radio piece on Homestar, home to some hilarious Flash animation built by two guys in their basement, literally. If you haven't heard of it, it's about a dense "jock-type" and his pals, who range from strange to seriously deranged. The star of Homestar Runner, despite the name, is Strong Bad, which is the focus of the piece. Strong Bad is a character dressed up in a Mexican wrestling match and wearing boxing gloves, but otherwise looks pretty harmlessly cartoonish. It goes on to describe Strong Bad as loveable, which I'm sure he'd take offense at. But aside from that little problem, the piece is not too bad. Gotta love it when a good thing gets press.
