I can’t really explain it, but I really like this email.

There are definitely worse emails out there than tapeleg. Tape leg has turned into a classic and the classics never get old ;)

I thought this sbemail was hilarious when it first came out. I still love it. Sometimes, Strong Bad is funnier when he fails to be funny... if that makes sense.

I thought it was quite funny. Definitely better than the basics. I don't know, it's just so... random. "They said my legs were made of tape?! What??" "I must've just stepped on an innocent piece of tape... tape."

And who could forget, tape-leg 2?

Well, I think it's very funny and stuff... but I don't think it's fair to compare it with present-day emails.

Sbemail #8 is definitely the worst. If you catch my drift. :poop:

This one is only funny because of the numerous refrences to it later on. It's one of those things that's so bad that it's funny. (anyone else here seen the awful 80's movie gleaming the cube?) It's not funny when you re seeing it but looking back....

There is an understated brilliance to it. I feel the same way about most of the old ones. They were so simple, but just so awesome in their own right.

This email's okay, but there are worse emails.

It's pretty pointless to post that type of thing...

Same with posting this, but I felt like I should tell you.

It wasn't much of a bump. Just a week and a half.

:sb: Okay, back to the back to the sbemail.
I don't see why everyone's saying this is the worse email. Strong Bad's reaction was slightly funny. There are DEFINENTLY worse sbemails. Worse by a huge margin. Look at "some kinda robot" (yes, I know it's the first one and all)!

Sorry, I must have misread the dates when I made my previous post. Carry on.

I never really laughed at it, but it ensired so many hilarious spin-off jokes that it deserves an award.

My favorite reference was in Personal Favorites when Strong Bad said:
"Oh, and who could forget... TAPE-LEG TWO!" *leg lifted up wrapped in tape*
