Easter eggs I've found are "CA," after brian holmes in the actual email; "my week" and "piemonade," both after the paper. I miss the eggs inSIDE the actual email, to spice things up and give a little bost to the intrepid and watchful. Email 110 didn't even have an egg in the beginning. Bah.

Strong Bad Emails get better and better. They've gotten more sophisticated and intelligent and yes, funnier. No, they are not as crude as the old days. In fact, the old emails weren't that great. It would just be Strong Bad saying "your stupid (everyone laugh). The cartoon is growing up, grow up with it or move along. Don't waste everyone's time with you're whining about it not being as good as the "good ol' days" - the "good ol' days" weren't really as good.


Look, wathcitman... I'm pretty sure almost no one on this site was around when the original emails like "Some Kinda Robot". When we refer to "The Good Ol' Days", more'n likely we're referring to emails like, say... Lunch Special or Lackey! I'm sure pretty much everyone likes the current emails better than the first!

This was a good email.
I loved what he mumbled in the easter egg at the end.

it was great.

BTW, Strong Bad has TWO working computers? Compy 386 and...Block?

Also, during the Eastern European email, you know that translator? Did they actually translated the whole thing or was it just some phony stuff saying random things. Hopefully, there's someone from Poland who can tell.

That was pretty funny. The Polish one got me cracking when it said "Your aspirin" on the screen. :D

Sbemails are getting more sophisticated. There are up times and down times. I have not been at H*R since it started, but I have watched all the sbemails, and have surmised that the sbemails were in a period like this somewhere midway, 50-70's. Then we had some glorious ones, and some bad ones (Car). We may be going through another period, and this is wit and sophistication, aptly recycling old jokes in a new atmosphere. The 'Good Ol' Days' (some of those emails are....crap) were made up of slapstick, more crude, brief sbemails. The Sbemail is maturing. Upon the lesser sbemails stands the new sbemails generation. This way, TBC have mastered the witty plot and even if you don't laugh aloud in one, you admire the atmosphere expelled.

That time of change I mentioned started this period. The Good Ol' Days sbemails only had one segment that made me crack up: The easter egg in the "lost sbemail." "Other days" sbemail followed the form of the great ones such as "Thnikkaman", "stunt doubles", and "Dangeresque 3". It was excellent.

I think that the Polish was genuine because when the translator said "Poland", I think it said "Polisk", which I think is the right word.

I think the Strong-Bad e-mails are in a fairly good time right now. In my opinion, the best time for Strong-Bad emails was about 40-60. But the E-mails are by no means declining in quality.

I'm Polish. Yes, the translation is a proper one. Even Strong Bad's name has been translated to SilnyZły :-). Though, the person reading it should be shot for reading it with such a stupid accent :-). I mean, what is it - Japanese? It's hard to comprehend even for a Pole :-)

I don't know if I'm right, I haven't had time to check, but wasn't the amount on Bub's collection notice, $3.62 I think it was, isn't that the same amount he charged for a Hobby kit in pencil shavings email with a canolope on a pencil? Tell me if I'm right cause then that means Strong Bad bought one or he's charging Strong Bad for the Cheat's kit.

Hmmmm...that makes sense, since The Cheat gave Bubs pencil shavings instead of actual money.

No, the hobby kit cost sixteen-tooty-two.

"I gotta snail mail in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt." This email gets five/five The Cheats.

We should have a rating system thing. I'd give this one:
:cheatgrin: :cheatgrin: :cheatgrin: :cheatgrin: :cheat:
:cheatgrin: = 1 point
:cheat: = 1/2 a point
So that's 4 1/2
Or you guys can be lazy and just say I'd give it 4 1/2 points.
