VG Cats
« on: March 04, 2007, 12:03:27 pm »

The web comic, VG Cats, makes numerous references to homestarrunner.com even linking to the site itself.  Stuff like "USS," "jorb," answering an e-mail on the Compy, and others.  I can't link to the site because of the language and occasional violence/gore.

Uh, it means "United States Ship" and is put before the name of a boat to designate that it is owned by the United States Government.

USS refers to a ship; I don't think we can quite attribute that one to homestar.  USS [insert witty phrase here] jokes have been around for quite some time.



EDIT: Dagnabit!  Beat to the punch. I guess I shoulda paid attention when it said that a new post was posted, haha.

Yeah, but the way they use it relates to the "First Time Here?" toon, even saying "This is a website" after that.

EDIT: The Cheat. The Cheat. Look closely.  Smile like you got gold all up in yo grill son!

Saying that "USS" is from H*R is a pretty unintelligent statement, that's what I meant and it applies to this topic.

It's in the new to the site section. It even links to the "First Time Here?" Homestar cartoon.

Exactly what HUGE 2 tha DORK said.  It links right to the Homestar Runner Welcome Video off of the three letters "USS."  It's kind of obvious how USS pertains to homestarrunner.com.

1. You might've mentioned that.
2. No it isn't.

Actually, the first thing that comes to mind for me when I see the letters "USS" is the American Navy.

Exactly. Just because USS is found on H*R.com doesn't mean that when someone mentions USS, they are referencing H*R.com. Just because there are Dell laptops doesn't mean that when someone mentions a laptop, they're referring to Dell laptops (yeah, I know, kinda weak reference, but it gets the point across).

Let me rephrase my last post.  #2 is the conclusion based off of #1.  If "USS" links to homestarrunner.com, it is kind of obvious it pertains to homestarrunner.com.  You see my point now?
