Do over, though I didn't like part-time job too much better.

I voted rock opera. Sure, the song was awesome, but I judge on humor, and there just wasn't enough of it.

Except for Dangeresque: Put 'em on Ice. That was good.

Dreamail without much question, since that one was pretty bland and really didn't have much in the way of hilarious or entertaining moments that I remember, and that's almost unheard of for a post-Tandy e-mail. Like Best Thing with the Limozeen cartoon, surely SB could have come up with something much more hilarious for that concept, right? Or maybe not - coulda been an off day, I guess.

Part-time job. Had no real funny bits. I mean the theatrical egg was ok, but didn't really make me laugh or anything...

I'm stuck between dreamail and best thing...



I think dreamail, maybe, well, that's what i vored.

i dunno, first tim watching it, his dreamail could've bee nmore funny... and less stupid...

i like the pink border and the puffy clouds, though.

*shrugs* "Best Thing" I didn't find too funny. Usually whenever there's a new SB Email, I sit there and laugh at it. "Best Thing" just didn't do it..

I greatly enjoyed all of those, but it eventually was a toss-up between dreamail and best thing. I went with best thing at the end.

Part-Time Job. I just didn't find the Hot Dog Clown funny.

Ah crap. I thought this was the BEST email ever and voted "long pants", which was the best. Can the mods change my vote to "best things"?

I went with Origins. It had some funny moments, but Strong Bad completely ignored the question in the e-mail.

Wow, this was a hard choice. But I went with part time job, since I just didn't find it as funny as the others.

There is really no standout bad episode here. They are all kinda meh to me, though, no real good ones, either. I voted Rock Opera, simply because, while it was a good idea, it wasn't really implimented well.

These are probably the best emails. I'll says Rock Opera. It was pretty funny, but there wasn't much to the email except for the opera itself.

Best thing. It majorly lacked funny.

EDIT: Are you going to make a poll so we can see which one is the worst out of all the worst?

I said Part Time Job. The one part that had me crack up was the look of the hot dog clown, the rest didn't quite tickle me. Quite the contrary I liked what seems to be leading, that is Best Thing.

Dreamail was a let-down for me when it came out. I just watched Part-time Job and I think it has plenty of good moments. Best Thing is not the best thing I've ever seen, but it wasn't horrible, it just could have been better. I like the rest just fine.

I liked Part-Time job. It had some really good quotes:

:bubs: "50 BUCKS! 60 BUCKS! Come back here and let me confinscate(sp?) your film!"

:sb: "Bubs must have passed out on the floor again."

:sb: "I gotta sneak out of here without Homestar noticing."
:hr: "Yeah ya do."

and a few others. And don't forget Tito the Cheat!

Despite the title, 'best thing' just wasn't the best thing.

Bien sur. That's the whole point of this little exercise.

I'm not too fond of dreamail. I'm surprised how many people don't like origins, that was hilarious to me, probably one of my top 5 favorites.

No he didn't. He just said he wasn't going to. He even showed us the other thing he said he wasn't going to show us. He described the history of the stick and how at one point it wasn't a cool place to hang out.

I picked secret recipes its not nearly as funny as the other emails in this period. It seems everyone doesn't like the new emails but I think this one was the only not funny one.

Wel, that's it. I can't vote on this one. I liked all of those. In fact, there are only 3 emails in existence that I don't like: pom pom, sisters and studying. That's it.

And I have a question. What are you gonna do if a new email comes out on Monday?

It was either best thing or part-time job.
I would choose both, but I can't, so I chose part-time jorb.
BOTPD!
