It was pretty good. I liked the "effect of cumulonimbus clouds on sheep, snowmen, and....cotton balls..."

And isn't the poll supposed to have 5 options?

4/5

Yeah, I really liked this one. Strong Bad using bloody tufts of the KOT's beard was sort of... strange... but still hilarious. I give a 8.5 out of 10.

And STupendous7 is right. There are supposed to be five options on the poll.

I fixed the poll up to standard form for your voting pleasures.

I predict that I'll give this sbemail a 4/5. We'll see if my clairvoyance works today...

I'm going to give it a 5/5. It had a large portion of interesting history and historical figures, which are my cup of tea. I immediately recognized the name of the treaty as being the one to end the Mexican-American War. Also, yay dinosaurs!

I truly loved this one, but it completely enforced the fact that every few emails, strong bad does one where he just spoofs stereo typical thing in a fifth graders life.
I do enjoy spoofs of stereo typical fifth grade things, so I give this one
:bubs: :bubs: :bubs: :bubs: out of :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat:

hehehe BYOO CANNON. :kot: was also pretty disgusting. Vary patchy.

Also, where was homestar? He could have made a hillarious appearance. I'm imagining it now.

I gave it a 3/5. While a strong showing of Peanut Action Strongbad as well as fake robot-related assassinations, I just didn't laugh as hard as last week. It was more or an appreciation type email that I still like for all the old references, but don't watch a whole whole lot.

I liked this one more than last weeks SBE-mail. It made me chuckle a bit. 3 1/2 cotton balls.

"IT HAS RAISINS" IS NOW MY FAVORITE H*R QUOTE.

Anyway.

How awesome was it that the two easter eggs contained the website's two creepiest characters?

Edutainment with violence! Edutainment with violence! Woot!

That was pretty danged awesome. I laughed out loud in sheer appalled horror when SB used tufts of the King's beard as cotton substitute. Also, the robot-and-dinosaur anachronisms were both hilarious and cool. Usually, when Strong Bad tackles a topic like dioramas, you can almost predict where he's going to go with it, but so much of this email came totally out of left field that I had to give it a five--perhaps even a high five!

Once again, we return to the Wonderful World of Strong Bad's Crappy Arts And/Or Crafts. And once again, I am greatly amused. I was especially amused to see more Senor Cardgage ("This is not what I sagged on for.") and the return of Peanut Strong Bad ("Hit him with the Byoo-Cannon!").

I Lurved it when :kot: sadi "to be fair, I ate all the cottonballs",I just miss
:hr:

Anything that in 2007 does a Jimmy Carter circa 1977 joke gets my vote.

I can't help but wonder if the "it has raisins" line stems from Better Off Dead. If so, seriously awesome.

Best parts: the scientific diorama and the two easter eggs, and the return of Peanut Strong Bad was entertaining.

This gets extra marks not because it was great but because TBC made something out of nothing. The end made me laugh though... and the easter eggs were pretty good. I've never understood why people spend 300+ on shoes. 4/5

All around hilarity.

Peanut Strong Bad, check
Byoo-Cannon, double check.
Jimmy Carter, ultra check.




So in return, 5 stars.

Hahaha...Now that's what I'm talking about!

5 stars! 2 thumbs up! Ummm...several points!

Heh..."Byoo-Canon"...Those guys crack me up.

Only negative point: The blood on the KoT's beard chunks was really unnecessary.

I thought this toon was great! It made me laugh loads, and the whole middle-school-esque thing was just great. 5/5!

I always though marzipan was the KOT's daughter, and Z and the KOT are best friends 0-o

That was awesome. Best one in a long time. Especially contrasted with last week's email, this one had me laughing a lot more this week. Full marks that they can still pull one of these classics out after 184 emails.

Pretty good overall.

And someone needs to correct the Wiki. The stick guy is President James Buchanan, considered by many to be America's worst President. You can tell this because of what it says on the top of the box in the final scene.

I liked hearing names like Carter, Polk (mentioned) and Buchanan mentioned. Seriously neat stuff there.

There might should be a Wiki page for Polk. He has been mentioned twice now (once on Homsar's costume in Jibblies 2 and once in this email)

Howevah, I'm far too lazy to make it.

Oh yeah! This was the best one in a while. It even makes up for last week. Even though it didn't have :pom: or :hr: , it did have The King Of Town, and his quote "To be fair, I did eat all the cottonballs" was hilarious. They'll have to change the downloads page now, because the KOT has now said something funny.

Good Prize/ :coachz:
