So, I don't know. I'm somewhere between a 3 and a 5; I guess I'll go with 4/5 for now.

Thanks for typing my review for me. He didn't really, but I agree with him on everything and now I won't have to type. And Costrick, you got any proof?


I really wish I did but I sent my email on a closed account 2 months ago. Sorry :-( That was really stupid of me. I don't blame you if you don't believe me.


Well, I believe you. How else could you have come up with such a specific explanation for "Costrick"?

I'll pretty much give anything a 5/5 if Homsar has a speaking part in it. My Zune is named Homsar. :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :p

That was a really great sbemail. Especially the index of suffixes. I wonder if I can use a few of those in a future Troperiffic Calvinball match. Something ending in "-valanche" could be Strong Bad's special ability... especially because he's the only one still left on my field after the location changed...

Where was I? Oh, yeah. The sbemail. Great idea putting in the infinite-loop "see also" trap. But how'd Homsar get past that? And I guess Virtual Paper is now the Compe-per... No, my keyboard cannot make accented characters. It is a cool name choice, though. Goes well with the rest of the Compe theme. I just hope this doesn't create more Wild Mass Guessings.

I still don't believe you, but I have higher hopes now. How do I know that you impersonated the real Costrick and came up with a suitable explanation for his name? And I SWEAR I will get revenge on whoever did send the email for sending it cause if they didn't my email would've been answered for sure!!

The way SB says "Better go see if someone can go pee-pees in um potty all by hwimswelf" is such a ribtickler. And yes, it does seem there will be a new wallpaper for every email.

Well, I loved this one. In short, consistent humour and in-jokes a-plenty. Oh, and Homestar's Easter egg at the end was quite hilarious, and the "see also" trap. 5/5, methinks.

Alright, first post!

I've been a lurker of the forums for about a year. I finally decided to join because of this sbemail.

Why, you may ask?

Because back when the first hremail appeared, I decided email Strong Bad so that way, if he returned, mine would be one of the first emails to appear. This is my email. You might not believe but I swear this is mine.

By the way, the reason the name is Costrick is because of Cosmo of the Fairly Oddparents and Patrick Star. And yes I really do use sawesome in conversations.

First off, congraturations, if what you say is true!

Don't worry, just take a screenshot next time.

What :homsar: said in the easter egg was *gasp* almost coherent!

You're right! But I'm too lazy to figure out which of his dialogs have also made sense.

Same here. I found it funny, and I have no idea why! I gave it a 5/5, as I found it a good ("Don't call it a comeback!") comeback ("Aww...") to sbemails. Also, I did enjoy the first appearance of the "Shut Up, Lady" for the first time in almost a year and a half! And yes, there do appear to be a lot of inside jokes, I noticed:
  • I saw Count Longardeaux coming a mile away.
  • I recognized the background and music from "Coach Z's 110%".
  • Paunch, I've heard it before, but I'm not too familiar with it.
  • The hesitant applause that was also heard in The First Decemberween.
  • Onion Bubs! Onion Buuubs! Onion Buuuubs!
  • Who can't forget Homestar with the viking hat, as seen in "the movies"?

Those are the ones I got off of the bat skimming through the email again, though of course, I was reminded of a a lot more in the list.

It confuses me when people say this. Just because there isn't a number there, doesn't mean it isn't obvious that "sawsome" is better than "gutterance".


Hey I think gutterance sounds cool...

but really it's just a clarity thing. Generally most people start with five and go down to one. But sometimes its the other way around so it's always a good idea to number them.

I must admit. The bottom 10 reference won the email for me. I'm caught between 4 and 5...

(On another note, first post, woo... I've lurked this place for a long time now. At least two years. Don't know why I never signed up...)

"This suckquake of a movie is a complete wastenado of my seven bucksonsoon."

$5 says some reviewer on YouTube uses this line, first given chance.

Hey! Strong Bad stole "crapvalanche" from me! I say that word all the time!

I really liked this email because I also have a dictionary's worth of words I've made up, such as my favorite, trultitasking {for when you are multitasking with 3 things). For some reason, I feel this email would have been better if they removed the Onion Bubs easter egg. And maybe the broodroscotch being poured on. However, the Homsar scene more than made up for Onion Bubs. I played it over again like 10 times!

Simple solution: You tell us what that email address was. Then we email The Brother Chap and ask them for the address of the sender of this email. If they verify it, then we know you're legit.

If they ever reply. Don't they get, like, 4,000 e-mails a day?

But yeah, this emailonsoon was a groodvornado oneforestfire.

Except that this would be a privacy violation on TBC's part to tell strangers the email address of some random person who emailed SB.

Not unless you asked them if it was a specific email address (the email address that Costrick gives us). I guess it could work...

it had some pretty funny moments, although it could've been better.
for instance, the final graauuunncscsch sound was pretty similar to the sound sb made for coach z...i think due to the amount of time i've been coming to the site i'm giving it a bit of slack when i say it's a 4.

the homestar easter egg hit the spot.

That was excellent. I laughed out loud multiple times. I'm torn between a 4 and a 5, but for the sake of making my 5's rare, I'm rounding down.

I especially liked the term "suckquake" and Onion Bubs. Also, "hurl!" "Tooth!"

My friend Philip used to have a Philiptionary, including words like "scrapulate" (which could mean anything you wanted it to), and "vlumming" (having had a sex change operation).

This made me laugh out loud.

I loved the "Awesome Sauce" at the end (which also doubles as an easter egg.)

I think :sb: is losing his touch. I didn't find this very amusing. At all. Maybe the Bros. are out of SBEmail practice.
