Best episode of Caleb Rentpayer ever!!

Tucksworth: {on TV} You can't grow a ZZ Top beard!

The Sbemail itself was pretty grood too. :p I myself have always wanted to fill a pool fulla jello so I could just dive on in and wriggle my way through the delicious goo. I don't know why Strong Bad decided to carry out the jello idea during winter though... I wouldn't want to swim in a jello pool during winter...

Isn't it obvious? They needed it to be cold out so it would "set" (normally geletin gets put in a fridge for a few hours so it can turn solid, but you can't really get an in-ground pool into a fridge.)

It seems to be one of the warmer January days though, as evidenced by the relatively little snow and the fact that the characters don't need winter clothes.

I thought it was good. I liked the Pom-Pom/Jell-O physics. I laughed a bit.

I hope he is going through another stage. It's just simply time for him to go through another evolution (through which he hasn't gone for more than six years!). Same goes for Coach Z.

Did anyone notice that Strong Bads mouth is not a rectangle or a circle after the KOT eats the jello? That really caught my eye.

This isn't the first time. How about in 'business trip' when :sb: says "incontinential blechfest"? Or in the 'Revenge of the King' start screen(which I guess could count as perspective)?

Wow, this toon was just like a picture book I was read when I was little: The Bunyip That Ate Canberra. Except with less bunyips. And less Canberra. And in the book, they turned a whole lake into jelly. They were trying to trap the bunyip so he wouldn't eat any more landmarks.

Anyway, I liked this toon. Marshie was good and scary. As was the idea that the King of Town ate Homestar and Strong Bad. And about whether Pom Pom would be removed from the site, they talked about killing him off in this interview.

That was the impression I got ...

When he first started drinking the Jello, I thought he was simply going to eat all of the stuff around them, but then why would he tell them to close their eyes (and say it wasn't going to be pretty)? And then to hear SB describe the experience ... Um ... Yeah ...


Especially the waking up 3 days later part.

I think it's something best left to the viewer's imagination.

I'm now watching this any everything newer than the latest Trogday for the first time. This is one of my favorites, mostly because of "And if you flash your lights at a car with its headlights orf, you get shot by gangsters!" and the creepy Marshie. Also, Nebulon makes everything cooler.

Hmmm....My interpretation of Strong Bad's description of how he got out:

"First, it got real loud." The KOT's slurping. He kept slurping right next to Strong Bad and co.
"Then, it got real hot". Somehow, this sounds like KOT actually slurped up Strong Bad somehow, and he's in KOT's mouth. (which is possible in this entire series, see the latest Old Timey toon)
"Then it got real slimy." KOT swallowed ol' SB.
"Then it got quiet." SB can't hear anything in there!
"Then it got unspeakable." The only thing I can think of here...well you know how Yoshi makes eggs in Super Mario World 2? Same thing happens here. The unconciousness for "three days" might have suggested that he got launched like a cannonball and landed on his head or something.

What do ya think?

Great one, especially with the Bill Cosby reference and Marshie being just plain creepy.

Yeah, that's about the size of it, I guess.

I had that hope too, but it was dashed when he said that three days had passed. I seriously doubt the KOT would've waited three days to upchuck. So... the unspeakable is more then likely what happened.

I think the whole point of it was to leave it to your imagination.

What I mean is I don't think they thought it through in that kind of detail. They just came up with a string of funny things and it happened to work out like that.

I doubt it, since it was so obvious, but OK.
