That was pretty good. I liked the part with Strong Sad. "You eat everything through a tube!" So I guess this means Strong Bad is over the age of twenty-four?

The lace-lift was disturbing. And can't Strong Bad normally beat Strong Sad up?

I actually leaned back in my chair laughing so much! This is my second favorite email!

That was one of the funniest in a while.

Facelift Strong Bad reminds me of the secret potion shop lady from Ocarina of Time. Or Anju's mother from Majora's Mask. Dey was scary...

Apparently there's also a new scroll button song. Isn't that great?

Well, it'd have to be, seeing as it's the only one.

:eek: That facelift thing REALLY scared me. Other than that, it was of normal email quality.

Strong Bad's facelift is gonna give me nightmares.

I cracked up during the remix scene. It reminded me of MTV Cribs. You know, when they'll cut to some slow motion shot of the guy walking through a door for absolutely no reason?

I just have to say... the Youth Through Editing sequence was the worst thing ever to transcribe. Worst. Ever. Worse even than the Marshie commercials, and they're pretty bad.

It was fun to watch, though. I laughed at a lot of it... the remix sequence, the backyard remodelling sequence, "GOO[s]BA[/s]D IDEAS", "[s]1[/s]0% OFF ALL iTems!", "Yes, I saw your new hip! It looks great!"

Plus, now we know how Strong Bad will likely look out as a wery old!

That was the best email since....I dunno. BUT IT ROCKED MY FACE. I laughed so hard at the Strong Bad and Strong Sad conversation. Everything before that was pretty funny too.

"You eat everything through a tube."

For some reason I loved Strong Sad in this. He actually seemed really happy to see his grandma hehe. So cute. :P "Tell me again how the Depression fought Abraham Lincoln naked in your front lawn!" I must admit that Strong Bad's facelift made me jump in my chair a little. O_O Jibb-a-lee...

I laughed so hard at the email remix. XD Especially the little Cheat noises in the background. And the "iTems" thing, too. Wish Homsar would've said something there though :P

I thought it was great. Especially the line about eating his yogurt through a tube. Someone should have suggested SB get a page on myspace. :p

Lace-left: Creepy, yet OH SO HILARIOUS. Am I the only one who thinks SB's paralyzed facial expression was a likely dig at Botox patients? I loved The Cheat's little remix, too! Definitely an e-mail worth the wait!

The very end when Strong Sad was talking about Abraham Lincoln was the best part. Disturbenly funny.

So far so good for 2007.

Love the new scroll song, love everything that involved making fun of the 00's. Go-gurt, remixed emails, i's, (and in turn, the e's of the 90's). Anyone notice that marzipan seems to be entirely a parody on HGTV? just thinking...

This is pretty hilarious! The part when Strong Bad was talking to Strong Sad is probably one of the finest moments on H*R, and I also liked the "Hey Homestar, what color iTem will you get?" line. Not-last place!

My suspicion was correct:
I realized in "the chair" that both "the chair" and "4 branches" have scenes where one of the characters is distorted/mutated (4 branches: HR watercooler, the chair: SB ripping off mask). This continued in what i want (SB nobot, HR nobot) and looking old (SB face lift, Marzi being blown on by SB). Coincidence? I think not.

-Strong Mad's proposal
-Homestar calling Homsar Homestar
-Remix scene

-Lack of Pom-pom
-Homsar didn't respond to Homestar!
-eStron thing

All in all I'll give it... a 2. See my siggy for rating system.

Strong Bad's face lift was indeed the most disturbing thing in any SBEmail. Also notice how Strong Sad isn't sad around "Great Grandma", which is another piece of evidence that his sadness is entirely caused by SB and SM. "tell me again about the time the Depression fought Abraham Lincoln naked in your front yard". freakin' eks-dee.
C+ (remember, that's not a bad thing, it's supposed to mean "high-side-of-average")

Strong Bad is my man! This is the funniest thing I've seen in 2007 thus far, and it'll take something pretty dang monumental to top it.

I saw the link at Homestar Runner Wiki, but decided to go directly to, watch the intro, and play with the main page before proceeding for the little-boy sensation. I'm eating a big bowl of baby carrots right now and I almost choked!

This is the first SBEmail to make me laugh profusely, not because the others aren't funny, but because I barely laugh at anything. Marzipan drinking chai struck my funny bone! I drink it all the time and nobody seems to know about it besides me! What did it for me, though, was Strong Bad either puking or having a seizure. I almost died of laughter!

In short, this is the best SBEmail ever, hands down, even topping the glory that is bedtime story. I can always count on Strong Bad to make my day! :-D

Wery good email. I loved the Cheat's remix, and the parodies of Mac products and GoGurt XDD But Strong Bad's Lace lifted face... gives me nightmares... Image Image

Post subject: 

I laughed out loud at the part with strong sad. Did that "lace up" creep anybody else out? The idea of the email was okay but I don't know it felt like it was missing something.

Just like "the chair." Man, Strong Bad just needs to leave his face ALONE.

But we won't leave the face-debate alone.

Anyway, I think this e-mail was funny. I'm not going to elaborate, but Strong Bad's face lift and Strong Sad was hilarious. Now Strong Bad's going to hang out with a bunch of 88-94 year olds. :mrgreen:

The cheat's remix kinda looked like this youtube video someone posted called, strong bad overload or something. This was really funny, I don't know whether to have a puke or seizure, but bubs and marzipan wern't really that funny which suprised me. I noticed the flab of marzipan going outward when strong bad yelled at her, does this mean she's getting a wrinkle? :eek:

Overall, good sbe-mail, 8/10 for me, but the whole lace lift was kind of a copying of that mask lift in the sbe-mail "chair", not good to use the same joke twice in a row.

The animation blew my mind in this, and the humor was great too. Of course, having to watch it while five minutes late for a bus and eating a pastry isn't the ideal email watching position.
