* Parodied in Episode 2 of ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople''. Homsar tells Strong Bad that he'll only join him after he completes the "three ancient tasks of great boredom", but very quickly admits that he was only joking. It's played straight in a few other episodes, though:
** In "Homestar Ruiner" Strong Bad, in order to get Homestar out of his house, must clear him of the public nudity charge against him, get him back together with Marzipan, and make him the winner of the Race to the End of the Race. Note that each of these is undoing the damage inflicted on Homestar by an earlier set of Three Trials (stealing Homestar's clothes, stealing the head from Marzipan's float, and entering the Race to the End of the Race disguised as Homestar).
