It was pretty good.

I notice that the label in the floppy disk container reads "Return to Zork", and I was like "hey I remember that game that my brother played."
Oh, my favorite moment?
The easter egg at the end.
"Ugly bird, ugly bird, ugly bird, ugly bird".

Wow, this is the first time I remember ever seeing an email before the Wiki article went up. :eek:

Anybody else think that this is the creepiest that Cardgage has ever been?

It approached a fairly unclean sort of humour with the intro song, Homestar's broken glass, Bubs as a flasher, and Senor Cardgage's daycare centre. Still, I enjoyed the Biscuit Doughhandsman comeback, the Disney knock-off DVDs, Strong Badge the Movie and the "Cheet".

3/5

Yup. That is for sure his creepiest moment. :senor: I loved the reference to the Easter marshmallow candies called Cheeps. The "Cheets" look very similar to them.

That was funny as always. I liked the reference to Strong Bad and The Cheat not having human noses. Also, the unlicensed DVDs. I'd watch them. In order to complain about them.

The straight-to-DVD movies and Homestar's broken glass song were my favorite parts... This was a solid email.

Meh… 3/5.

I might change my mind if it turns out that I just have a case of the early mornings.

Fairly good one. Bubs was at his finest again. Yeah. Couldn't really appreciate this one, since I'm sick...

It was not too bad, even alright. I was a bit surprised when :bubs: claimed to be a public flasher.

TBC seems to be on a roll as of late. I loved the email, especially the part with Senor Cardgage's daycare. 4/5.

Heh. All that unlicensed merchandise reminds me of Camden.
That was a pretty good e-mail. I loved the bit at the bottom of the DVD that read 'So straight to DVD, it hurts', as well as the fact that Bubs' shady dealings are (mostly) a better deal than his legitimate business.
And just when you thought Cardgage couldn't get any creepier, he takes a flying leap into disturbing...

I thought it was okay...

There have been better ones in the past month.



Looking forward to numba 200, though.

It was pretty good. I have to watch it again, though (it was somehow harder for me to follow than most emails)

I thought it was OK. Some parts were funny, like Bubs's black market and Senor Cardgage :eek:
3/5

I didn't find it funny, but it might just be because I'm in a bad mood cause I'm sick.

Did anybody else see the :cheat: egg at the end and immediately go, "I'm sad that he's flying?"

I had to watch it twice for it to reach "Okay" status. 2 1/2 out of 5 Strong Sads.

:sad: :sad: 1/2

Ah, hilarious bootleg merchandise. How I love the.

I laughed out loud at "I'm a public flasher" and "broken glass!"

Is it me, or is Homestar's voice a little bit off in this one?

This was a pretty amusing email. I rather love the plethora of bootleg Strong Bad merchandise, from crappy paintings on the walls of cut-rate day care centers to checkout-line DVDs to cheaply-made candies. Homestar's nasty broken glass wounds at the end were kinda creepy, though. But probably still not as creepy as Papa Cardgage's Puddin' Patch.

Man, good thing Easter's coming up, those Cheets looked awesome! I would totally buy those! Does "Shut up Lady" deserve her own Cast Credit? she's "appeared" in at least 3 settings.

I'm not sure why, but the ending made me actually lol. It was just so...unexpected. The rest of it was decent too.

I thought this one was pretty good. I was digging on the old-school reference in the Easter egg.

This email gets my love in spades. I can't put it easily into words, but where some recent emails such as "Fan Club" felt forced to me, this one seems so much more inspired, not to mention the characters feel right (where again I thought "Fan Club" fell flat). Probably the darkest they've ever put out to boot

I didn't get some of the jokes in this one, but the ones about wannabe Disney movies and public flashing totally made up for that. I almost spewed out part of my Snapple when Bubs said that! Bwahahaha! :bubs:

Totally! I'm gonna have "ug-ly bird, ugly bird, ugly bird, ugly biiirrrd" stuck in my head all day now. It'll make me so happy if that's the next quote of the week.

I have to concur, especially with the crappy knockoffs. The email got better as it went along, except for :senor: . *shudders* I'll be seeing that in my nightmares from now on.
:bubs: Oh, uhh... I'm a public flasher!
:sb: Yeah, right. You ain't got no nudity under there!
Signature-worthy material right there. And I'll be very surprised if the username "Strong Badge" isn't taken soon.
