Obligatory Wikilink added by Tom: montage

what did you think of the new email.

I thought it was...weird.

Don't forget to stick around the end for more credits, and don't forget to click 4 Wheels and Strong Bad.

Yayyyyy!!!! What a great email. New songs, witty pancakes, new songs....

Well, the email iself was competely random, but played up the great (and silly) montages in stereotypical B-list movies. Couples falling in love, the underdog training to win against all odds... And did I mention I liked the music?

And SB's voice in the begining sounded an awful lot like Cartman's. I know people here get riled up when people mention popular culture, though, so I won't say that this is the actual reference.

PLUS! SB has a new quote on the email menu!
PLUS! The DVD's out!
PLUS! There's a new Coach Z shirt!

How good could today get?

(...and I got to post the first email post. Today rocks).

Put on your dad's computer and we'll sail to paradise... You're a girl, or maybe a wagon filled up with pancakes...

sorry for typing in all caps

Hey, porplemontage, congrats! I think you're the first Wikian to get an e-mail. I think caps are definitely in order.

For those of you who are skeptical, it's easy to confirm that porplemontage is probably from Surf City, NJ and his name is probably Steve and he's a bad speller. So, combolations to him!

I thought it was very good. Good length, funny, lots of new music, and a Wagon Fulla "Pamcakes".

I wonder if in Strongbad Email 173, he actually will upgrade his printer.

Yeah, it was good and funny. I especially enjoyed the pancakes climbing up those stairs. I'm still shocked that he answered my email. Let's see:

That...was...awesome. So awesome. I really liked the one with Strong Bad falling in love with the Wagon Fulla Pancakes. It was so sweet seeing him so in love. But I loved all the montage cliches (especially the credit montage, with the subtitles. They should have done "Died in Vietnam"). I give it an 11 out of 10.

Odd. It seemed that they made it up as they went, but it was still so random, it made me laugh. SB is surprisingly more romantic than I thought he would. The songs are funny, and The Cheat being a salesman was funnier, and the WFP knocking out Homestar was friggin hilarious. All in all, I'd give this an 8/10. Nowhere close to getting my coveted Golden Trogdor award, but still good.

Strong Bad falling in love with a Wagon Fulla Pancakes? Homestar as the Karate Kid? The Cheat as a chainsmoking, bourbon-drinking door-to-door salesman? Not one, not two, but THREE awesome songs? Wow. A++.

Edit: Whoops, I meant four awesome songs (five if you count the one Homestar sings in the Easter Egg)

Wow, congratulations, porplemontage! If the wagon full of pancakes will be seen again in the future, you can always say it was your very e-mail which caused it's creation.

As for the mail itself, I found it decent. It was funny but not so funny like the last one...

Only thing I'm wondering, does the easter egg at the end really mean the end of The Paper is in sight? Do you think TBC will remember this mail in email #173?

<edit> whoops, somehow missed the post above ^^;

So, as we now have the chance to ask questions to the writer of an e-mail, did you actually think of the UNIX-command when you misspelled "creat", or was this merely by accident?

Post subject: 

I doubt the fans will let them forget it. After #172, you can bet they'll get plenty of The Paper-related emails, just like they got lots of Dangeresque 3 emails.

At first I thought that this was a blatent rip-off of South Park. Thinking about it more however I think its probably NOT intentional.

1) Knowing that TBC aren't South Park fans, its entirely possible that they never saw the Asspin Extreame episode, or the montage in Team America: World Police.

2) The montages are not just "sports-training montage" in SP, but also the dippy falling in love montage, and the down on your luck montage.

3) This hacky cinematic device was insanly popular during the eighties, where much of TBC pop culture refernces are pulled.

4) The emailer quite possibly have gotten the idea from SP/TA:WP, and wrote it, the the concept of paroding a montage would of sparked TBC's imagination along the same line as Parker/Stone. (Can you confirm porplemontage?)

5) Hey, lets face it. Its just not their style.

- edit -

6) Almost forgot.... SIMPSONS DID IT!

Is this the first time a character in H*R has been seen actually smoking?

Well, I usually go by porplemontage. So, I guess I just thought I'd throw in the word "montage" in an email. That was the only reference. Was the montage in Team America similar?

Oh, and for TraV333, you might be onto something there. Maybe a fun fact is in order, but I'm not positive.

Let's also not forget that it's already been made clear that The Cheat smokes anyway, at least given the evidence provided in Where's The Cheat and the Message Bored game The Cheat's Smoking Challenge.

So yes, I agree with IJ. No making a huge deal of things.

Post subject:  oh man

this has to be my favorite email so far, i liked everything in it, especially the songs and the cheat going door to door
besides, i believe watered down when he says that he sent the email, i just hope that mine can get answered someday

Post subject: 

The Cheat smokes when you lose The Cheat's Smoking Challenge. Also, um... I wrote the fhqwhgads email. Totally.

Anyway, an awesome email this week. I was laughing pretty much the whole way through, and I haven't been able to say that about an email for a long time. Wagon full of pancakes... you've got to love it.

I need an MP3 of "Showdown".

Post subject:  um . . .

did anyone notice what i noticed? During part of the, and if not all of the, email, strong bad's mouth was upside-down if im wrong anybody, lemme know

Author:  InterruptorJones [ Mon Nov 08, 2004 7:23 pm ]
Post subject: 

His mouth appears upside-down because he's smiling, and it only appears that way during the falling-in-love montage.

not to make a big deal out of it or anything.

I think somebody named "Jhonka" posted and said he wrote the jhonka email, but he may have been unregistered. Actually, porplemontage- I thought of your name when he started the email. You wouldn't believe how amazed I was when I found out it was you.

Great email, by the way. I thought it was one of the best so far.

This is definatly one of my 3 fave emails. By far. I can't think of one moment that I wasn't laughing during this one. I give it a 9.9/10, because I NEVER rate anything perfect.

Post subject:  When I saw this email....

OK, I was in Study Hall when I watched this email and people were talking so I didn't know exactly what was going on. I mean, I saw Strong Bad dating a wagon and I'm like "WHAT THE???!!!" and then I saw The Cheat with the wgaon so I'm like, "oh what...The Cheat stole her from Strong Bad?" I mean, I knew THe cHeat somethetimes steals Strong Bad's ladytypes, but...WAGONTYPES??? :eek:
