I love them all, so I wouldn't call these the worst emails. But my least favorite emails...

01 - mile
02 - colonization
03 - ladying
04 - property of ones
05 - sugarbob
06 - autobiography
07 - i she be
08 - current status
09 - sb_email 22
10 - weird dream

These are possibly not in the exact order of badness.

10. Bottom 10, appropriately enough. A bizarre hodge-podge of ideas that never really go anywhere. Brownie points (no pun intended) for the lethal desserts part, but that's about it.
9. Rock Opera - A for effort, but the focus was far too much on exploiting the gimmick concept than actually getting humour out of it.
8. For Kids - Proof that too much of an awesome thing (Homsar) is really really dumb and bad.
7. Weird Dream - Yeah, what? Nothing really happens here, and the main joke isn't too funny.
6. Old Comics - Yep, they sure got across the point that old comics are really unfunny. Slightly redeemed by the easter eggs.
5. Funny - Trying really hard to be funny just ends up being boring. (And vice versa, as seen in Boring Really)
4. Lackey - Eh, I dunno, it just didn't strike me as interesting. Sugarbob would be here except the DVD commentary completely redeems it.
3. Homestar Hair - Hey, it won the worst email competition so I had to stick it in here. I usually cut the old emails some slack, but, no, just no.
2. Tape-Leg - Yeah.
1. Current Status - Nothing will ever top this one in sheer stupid. The idea comes out of nowhere, has nothing at all to do with the email, and is poorly executed and never explained.


*counts down until someone flames me for those first few*

I agree with all of that, except for rock opera, and that's cause I'm a music freak.

Bottom ten wasn't that good. I just like the nibbles commercial.

Another one not funny to me was lady...ing. The reference is great and all, but it wasn't that good by itself.

I kind of liked funny... (*looks at av and sig* Aren't I Captain Obvious?)

My e-mails are like...my childrens. It's hard to pick...
4. gimmicks - Counts on surprise, so it doesn't work after the first time...
3. homestar hair - There wasn't even an e-mail...
2. tape-leg - Well, it's tape-leg.
1. mile - Lackluster!
I only did four. Why? Because.

I guess this is my approximate list:

10. Dreamail
9. Property Of Ones
8. Homestar Hair
7. Tape Leg
6. Boring (Really)
5. Duck Pond
4. Brianrietta
3. The Basics
2. Butt IQ
1. Some Kinda Robot

I tried to cut the earlier E-mails some slack in this list, but nothing remotely entertaining happens in any of my picks for bottom 5 E-mails. At all.

Oh, and I'm very shocked to see mile on two of these lists! The best moments from that one, like all PBTC stuff, are very nearly WABEROFFLE caliber to me.

Yeah, what the crap? How can you not love mile? If not for mile I might not even be here!

Anyway, bottom 10:

10. Old comics (except for Sir Loodabert, who made it worthwhile.)
9. Car (only good part was Homestar's woozy ramblings)
8. The Basics (just a bit too rambly)
7. Homestar hair (for obvious reasons)
6. Weird dream (little bit creepy, but the only one on the Tangerine Dream)
5. Best Thing (I'm not really that big of a Limozeen fan. Did like Teeg Dougland, though.)
4. Long pants (bit too short, and again, kinda creepy.)

Ohh, the nitty gritty now!

3. 3 Wishes (kinda pointless)
2. Tape-leg (though it has a kind of Plan 9 From Outer Space so bad it's good vibe going on.)

AND FINALLY

1. Guitar! Who needs the meedleys?

Actually, I love them all. But if you held a gun to my head, these are the ones I'd pick.

I guess Guitar is only truly hilarious if you really come from a metal/hard rock background. Otherwise, that's one of those E-mails I can see how it would be annoying. But I still kinda have a soft spot for it, because it was the first thing I ever saw on H*R. *shrugs*

Yeah, I can understand that. It's the only reason Techno wasn't on the list.

I think some of the emails are designed for specific groups of people, like lady...ing was for people who've seen MLS, and Best Thing was for former fans of crappy 80's cartoons. I guess guitar was the one aimed at rockers. ;)

Alright. This'll be hard.

10. "theme party"
9. "old comics"
8. "weird dream"
7. "homestar hair"
6. "dream mail"
5. "tape-leg" - Gotta hate the tape-leg.
4. "current status"
3. "car"
2. "the basics"

1. "best thing" - Just the worst thing on the site. Blech.

8. No Loafing
7. Cheat Talk
6. Homestar Hair
5. Action Figure
4. Unused Emails
3. Dreamail

I don't know really what they were but they were lacking:
Emails 101-104, 111-114, and 121-122 were probably the worst for me.

But "For Kids"? You got be kidding.

Well, after watching the two I didn't like, I have determined that I like them all. I'm really surprised that dragon made some people's bottom ten list. Its one of my top three.

Hi Hi guys.
Post your introduction here:
http://forum.hrwiki.org/viewtopic.php?t=208
A lot of people do this, so don't be sad.

Back on topic. The worst email I ever saw was probably.. some kinda robot. I mean, he just TALKED. And wrote. And I can't think of nine more.

Uh, so why did you come here to discuss the cartoon that "jumped the shark"? Why do you still watch it?
