I liked it. It just seemed a little more bland than usual, like the characters had less energy. Still very funny and enjoyable.

It was okay. I never really laughed much, but I liked...

-The distorted pronunciation of Roxy's name at the beginning of the email
-"Go ahead... you earned it." *H*R puts feet on table* "My dogs are KILLING me!"
- "Peanut brittle coulda swam better than that."

But even at those parts, I never laughed. In my opinion, this email was a 2 1/2 out of 5.

I just finished watching this email again, you know, because it's so hilarious, and I noticed something: the bushes look different! They're all puffy.

Ah man. I wasn't expecting much, I mean the last one was so great. But I really didn't like this one.

1/5

I noticed that too. It made me wonder whether they really did leave Free Country USA.

It was ok. Somehow, I didn't find it very funny. I mean, somehow there just wasn't anything...I could relate to or find funny. But there were still some fairly good parts, such as with the airplane at the end. 3/5

I really loved that "Rox-eereereeeer-y VA" bit. How in the heck can someone achieve this effect?

And believe it or not, before this email came out, I envisioned Strong Bad's "blechk" mouth as his belching mouth.
I'm also finding myself learning new words from new sbemails, like "scantily," "lanyard," and "conglomerate."
With different clouds and bushy hills, I really think Free Country, USA has already changed.

I can guess that Matt has done a total of between 14-20 announcer-type voices. Somehow he seems to be making his various speeches a little bit hard to forge.

And one more thing: A "tilde" (~) is seen on the Lappy's screen. The Brothers Chaps have the latest version of Glitch0, don't they? 'Cause my version doesn't have a tilde at all.

Great email. Lot of things made me laugh here. Loved the vague business slogans ("seal the deal!"). I especially like how sbmails are becoming more pop culture oriented - for example, this one plays on the various stereotypes of its namesake, webcomics does likewise, etc.

Best line:
:hr: "My dogs are killing me!"

Great job! 4/5

I guess those of you who didn't "get" this e-mail might not have been on a business trip. But wow, this whole e-mail was so familiar I was starting to wonder if someone had been following me around on previous business trips to get ideas for this one. (Yes! Those stupid name-tag-thingies that you always end up with about a thousand of and don't know what do to with when you get back! And the buying random crap at the airport on the way home!)

So I don't know what mark to give this. It's no "Mini Golf" (that was off the scale), so I guess 4/5.

I think it might be a sampled sound from the 3D Pinball game.

The only part I really liked was "incontinental blech-fast," but otherwise nothing really stood out.

I keep checking this thread in hopes of some Jones' Girl outrage, but it never happens.

Also, I liked the "That's right, he just made a You Go Girl joke" part the best.

I really think that this one is an email that gets funnier each time it is watched. There are a lot of things that can only be appreciated after multiple viewings, such as the background music and subtle gags. I loved the dotted line check that Strong Bad made next to "Meet hot female executives for drinks". I didn't notice that until my third viewing.

You'd have to be familiar with business trips to really get this one. I found it very funny.

:hr: "airport security. You know how it is, roll my eyes."

Pretty interesting. I never really noticed it before, but businessmen always do seem to think it's necessary to loudly let you know they're on a business trip. The swimming airplane was funny too.

The distortion of Roxy was, for some reason, good.

I give this one a 3/5.

I've never been to St. Louis.

This one was all right. I'd probably rank it higher if I could understand what Homestar was saying without relying on the Wiki transcript.

Man, whenever the KoT shows up for anything, I get ravenously hungry. Now I want lasagna really badly.

The Greasemonkey script makes it much easier.

Oh, and we finally get to hear how he pronounces "sbmail"! Now I give this a 3.001/5.

This e-mail was probably the worst he's ever made but the new rap song made up for this e-mail

I like it. I don't love it.

TBC have messed with fonts before (see Decemberween Short Shorts) so it's not unlikely that if Glitch0 had no tilde before, they added one.
