Airdate: Tuesday, June 26, 2007

The Broternal Order of Different Helments has a meeting.


Tropes:

  • Brotherhood of Funny Hats: The Broternal Order of Different Helmets is a literal example, with every member wearing a different silly helmet. The Order seems to largely be an excuse for Homestar and friends to hang out drinking Cold Ones.
  • Call-Back: Homestar's viking helmet and the Order's "frothy, shanty chant" first appeared in the Strong Bad Email "the movies".
  • Advertisement:
  • Orphaned Punchline: The cartoon opens on the following snippet of a conversation between Strong Sad and Coach Z.
    Coach Z: Well, it's like a tricycle, but with nineteen wheels instead of t'ree!
    Strong Sad: Coach Z, that's a horrible recipe.
    Coach Z: Lemme run this one by ya. We start with a pound of rubber cement...
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Strong Bad's "weekly power play" consists of him loudly ranting for nearly half a minute about how if he were in charge of the Broternal Order, things would be more exciting than the "rejected Girl Scout camp material" Homestar is offering.
  • Secret Handshake: The Order has a secret handshake. Per Rule of Funny, it's demonstrated by Homestar and the King of Town, the two members who don't have hands.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Homestar sings a few lines of the theme from DuckTales (1987) in an Easter egg.

    • The Poopsmith's helmet is the same one Judge Dredd wears.
  • The Starscream: Strong Bad makes a "weekly power play" in a vain attempt to wrestle control of the Order away from Homestar.
