* Consider how horrifying most of the cast would look if their bodies were subject to the laws of nature. Even if you ignore the several missing limbs, Bubs has flippers, Marzipan is implied to have some kind of sluglike foot in place of legs, Strong Bad's face is at least partially removable, and Coach Z has a face in only the loosest definition of the word. The oldest cast member, the King of Town, could possibly be just a cartoonish human under that Santaman cape thingy, and the youngest, presumably Strong Sad, is both the most grounded in reality and most realistic in his appearance. He has a complete head (unlike the otherwise humanoid Strong Mad), arms with actual ''fingers'' (while half the cast are still working on the whole "arms" business), and feet with toes (animal feet, but it's something). This variation in mutations implies that whatever warped Free Country's reality started off slowly, came into full force at around the time of Homestar and Marzipan's births (living flesh broomstick?!), and waned slowly since. Homsar, with his vague age and origin, is some kind of anomaly, it's possible that he's the cause of all the chaos in the first place. Or, as stated above, he is a god.

Because, c'mon: the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Radar-dodging]] yet still kid-friendly brand of humor would fit right in with ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. In addition, Creator/AdultSwim tried to make a deal with the Brothers Chaps a few years ago, but they probably declined out of the fear that Adult Swims execs would [[ExecutiveMeddling make it too adult]] like Spike TV execuas did with ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Besides, it's not like Cartoon Network has an aversion to ''[[TotalDramaIsland crappy]]'' [[AlmostNakedAnimals Flash]] [[JohnnyTest cartoons]], so why not pick up a genuinely ''good'' Flash cartoon for once?

\n* Afterwards, Homestar, depressed, will crash on Strong Bad's couch drowning his sorrows in melonades. It gets to the point that Strong Bad has had enough, especially since Homestar hovers during a sbemail. Seeking a way to get Homestar out, he is told by Strong Sad he has a friend on [=MySpace=] named Champeen (and Strong Bad ridicules Strong Sad for still using [=MySpace=] after everyone moved on to Facebook and Twitter). Strong Bad has to delve into the "Dancing Bubs" game and the Museum sketchbook to find out just who Champeen is, finding out that, much like Dijjery Doo, she was a rejected character. Setting them up on a blind date, it's love at first sight, as Champeen is as athletic and moronic as Homestar (without the Elmer Fudd thing and only a bit smarter than Homestar). During the date, though, they run into Marzipan and Coach Z, and it turns out Champeen and Coach Z have a history, as she beat Coach Z in the 1984 Summer Olympics at the 100m Dash. Coach Z goes postal on Champeen, but Champeen reveals she's a black belt in karate, quickly taking down Coach Z ("Ow, my everythorng.") Marzipan helps Coach Z home while she berates him for attacking Champeen, and Homestar and Champeen go off to practice for kickball season. Satisfied, Strong Bad turns to the audience and tells them "There, now Marzipan isn't the only girl anymore. Are you overzealous soccer moms happy now?"

** Think about it, though. They are both big, strong, bald and have NoIndoorVoice, and Strong Mad has the most human-like appearance out of all the brothers (or characters in general, really). And since PokerNightAtTheInventory showed that the two worlds can collide, this becomes a possibility.

\n*This may be the first time I have seen a "It was in they're Imagination! It never really happened!" theory not involveing comas or insanity or some BS like that. It's just a guy who made a cool story! Lemme try to compare all the characters (at least the main ones) To real-life Strong Bad Acquaintances. Strong Sad and Strong Mad are indeed his real-life brothers, but they're story versions are extremely exaggerated. Strong bad also love his younger brother IRL, but he thought the abuse could be funny in a dark comedy kind of way. Pom-Pom is a rich playboy from foreign lands, most likely Japan or something, hence the different language. Pom speaks some English though, enough to form meaningful relationships. The KOT is a senile rich old man, and the Poopsmith is his quiet assistant. All the other Characters are made up by SB. I'm debating with myself whether or not they look like the weirdos we know and love, or are actual humans. Tell me which sounds better

...At least for certain King of Towns. According to Strong Bad in "original", there have been 12 King of Towns. Marzipan is the daughter of one of the KOTs (maybe the Prince of Town seen in some of the storybooks?).

* At least one KOT is/was around 300 years old
* Another is/was married to a bowl of Brunswick stew for 50 years.
* In one Marzipan's Answering Machine, one of them called to sing about the "new KOT" - this was literally the case.
* The KOT is occasionally heard booing other characters, even himself at times - those cases arise when another KOT is in the audience and hasn't yet replaced the current one.
* Another KOT helped discover Decemberween

[[WMG: The King of Town is still Marzipan's biological father.]]
* Either she was separated from him at birth and he doesn't recognize her as his long-lost daughter, or he never knew he had a daughter.
