This was one of the best yet. Has anyone noticed how they've changed the style of humour a little bit? It seems to have "grown up" somehow, and I can't put my finger on exactly how.

I like it anyhow. They had to change it to keep it going. Instead of basing all the humour off Strong Bad trailing on... words... like a great big... muffin.. healer and running with it until the end of the flash, they're making it more self aware.

Looks to me like Strong Bad got his whiny brother :sad: hooked on coffee. This is what, the third time we've seen him amped up on caffeine? I'll never forget the first time I watched "caffeine"... damn near had a heart attack, he creeped me out so much.

When was the second time?

Does this mean it's a running gag now?

It was in the "Boring" email. He broke up the monotony of that mail.

This one had me in stitches. One of the funniest e-mails ever. I loved the Strong Sad easter egg. 9.5/10

Yeah, when he said to play video games, but not the ones where you are a dog or a frog.

Well, that could be anything. Do you have any idea how many dog games there are now?
I think he was referencing to those dumb Barbie games.

Or Frogger =P

In which case a lot of classic arcade game fans have every right in the world to be miffed with him right now! Frogger was awesome! No, IS awesome. Is.

I've not yet played Nintendogs, but anything involcing puppies is right up my alley. Of course, explodey puppies would probably be more entertaining.

Soce, where'd the Sam and Max thing come from? I didn't get it.


A little googling should get u started...

http://www.samandmax.net/
http://www.telltalegames.com/comics/samnmax


So around 12 or so years ago, Lucas Arts released a Sam and Max adventure game.. one of those puzzle games where you go around, talk to people and use items.. kind of like King's Quest or something. It's one of the greatest games ever. Great dialogue, cheesy settings, awesome jazzy music.. totally incredible. If you can find a way to get your hands on it, then it is so worth it. Probably one of my most favorite games ever.

Now, actually I'm curious and will check out the rest of the comic series!!

I liked it a lot! Especially Strong Sad's much-needed correction of the usually articulate Marzipan. The king of town flies really weirdly! My favorite part was the motel. Those names are all perfect! Homestar is totally Lando Calrisian!

I heart toxic waste too, Homestar!

Wow...am I the only one who thought that the poking sound wasn't the Mac drip noise but was rather derived from Pom-Pom's bubble talk? Well, at first hearing, anyway...second time through, I noticed it was a bit different...

But yes, I agree--fine email. I'm on the bandwagon of Roffling At Caffinated Strong Sad Easter Egg.

But in Nintendogs, you don't play as a dog, you just take care of dogs.

Yeah, and scared the daylights out of me, too. All the characters were moving all slow and stuff and then out of nowhere, Caffeinated Strong Sad comes in talking nonsense. I almost fell out of my chair. One of those "what the heck just hit me?!" moments.

Moving on... since I didn't say it earlier, this email was actually pretty good for a Lappy-era email, though I liked animal (the first Lappy email) a lot better. I don't care what anyone says; SBemail jumped the shark after Lappy came into the picture (I'm not saying it hasn't had its moments, so don't burninate me for this!). Most of the emails nowadays are too long and drawn out. The Tandy era actually had some of the best (e.g. homsar)--short and sweet.

At any rate, I'm rambling; might as well rate the email. Adjusted for the general quality level of Lappy-era emails, I give it 7 out of 10.

Frogger was the most awesomest game that ever did awesome.

But in Animal Crossing, you don't play as a dog and frog, you just befriend them.

Always awesome new Easter Egg, by the way. I was wondering why there wasn't one at the end earlier. Caffeinated Strong Sad is now a running gag, I suppose.

Durn it, a new easter egg? (i'm kind of obsessive about changes - I have saved the original version of Caffeine where Coach Z says "crazy old man" and other things like that)

Heh, I have the version, too.

Getting back on topic: Probably the most memorable part was Strong Sad's caffeine fix. I agree with Joshua when he says that's it's probably a "running gag" at this point...

Off topic: Say, does anyone have the early version of this email with the "mr. allen poe" mispelling? If so, would it be possible to send it my way or host it somewhere? It would be much appreciated. I would be willing to trade for an early version of an earlier email; I have quite a few of 'em. Thanks.

Great e-mail.

Has anyone noticed that Sbad has stopped some of the stupid obligatory e-mail jokes, like "make a big deal about the e-mailers grammar, name, and location"? I know he's still doing it, but a lot less...

And the usual thing where he... trails... on his... word... and comes up with the first thing that pops into his head at the end of it, which then becomes an actual "thing" until the end of the email. That was funny and very close to my sense of humour but got old.

Earthworm Jim 2 had squishy puppies. They were thrown out of buildings and you had to bounce them on a big marshmallow to reach the chute or else they'd fall and go squish and explode into yellow and pink goo.

I was trying to figure out if I had made the puppies and marshmallows scenario up or not, because that's what I thought of what I said 'explodey puppies'. I'm glad I'm not insane.

And now I need to play Earthworm Jim ...

Er, Strong Sad corrected Homestar, not Marzipan. And Homestar was Dee Williams, not Lando.

I dunno what I liked about this one, but I liked it a lot. Although I was expecting a Homsar showing when Strong Bad mentioned that sign. Oh well. I guess we can't always get what we want.

3.5/5
