I went with Garage Sale. I mean, how funny was in when Homestar called himself "Slightly used and mostly confused."?

It almost unquestionably has to be Rock Opera for me - it might seem like unwatchable random nonsense at first, but it somehow flows together as a 'song' at the same time and it actually gets better every time I watch it. I'm always getting the phrases 'Ooh! Oh. Party like completely great, good.', 'Professional funky totally diggity-underdrawers.', and ESPECIALLY 'Positate without pizzaz and jam!! Whoa!' caught in my head, even though I know I'd get weird looks from people if I ever sang any of them out loud. :)

And it also managed to throw Anonymous Contributor into all that mess, too! SB as a demented stick figure with Tompkins in there had me rolling. Man, what a great e-mail - probably my favorite of the Lappy era.

I'd say do over was best. It was very long, had Tandy flashbacks, and contained Homestar dressed as the Cheat.

Rock opera. While not necessarily the funniest, I think it was the best and probably my favorite in these last ten. Second goes to origins or long pants.

Part-time job is pretty good. It's not that good the first time you watch it, but after you see it a few more times, you realize it's really funny.

Long pants is clearly the best email in my eyes. I'm surprised it only has 2 votes...

Beyond the Grave, you just somewhat spammed. Twice.

I voted Rock Opera. Man, that was great!
