The House of the Strongs has a ceiling? And pot lights? Now that's cool.

I really liked this email, less of a story and more of just fast paced pop-up fun.

Oh, and here's an obligatory wiki link too.

i only thought it was ok, it seemed kinda wierd the way that strongbad talked alot in the begining and rushed through the meat of the email and kinda ended bad

Ha! I thought that it was pretty good. It seemed like the email was kinda "in a hurry", but that's just me. I loved the cheat easter egg in the end.

This was the most random, off the wall, insanely-paced SBEmail ever.

I loved it.

Dang, I've really been enjoying the sbemails lately. This one cracked me up, particularly the horrible 'Deleted' sound.

Thanks whoever put the name of the sbemail in the title, had no time to :p

Ahh! It was a ghost! Hide me mommy! :[

Instant classic. That was so AWESOME!

Loved the Cheat's dance in the easter egg.

Pretty cool. We finally see the ceiling in their house...and Bubs smoking. Now, someone will say they are getting edgy because Bubs is smoking.

This was brilliant! I must admit, however, that I'm disappointed that there wasn't an interactive pop-up book to play with at the end. Maybe an enterprising fan will whip one up.

They're getting edgy because Bubs is smoking. :p

And yes, I thought there was going to be a pop-up book at the end to play with.

Meh, the Cheat already smokes. They've gone there before.

there have been quite a number of different instances with smoking so your right. Homesar was smoking in one of the halloweens, and strong bad has lit a cigar before. And I don't see that as edgy at all.

Anyway I thought this was a great e-mail! An instant classic! 9.2/10

Hilarious and possibly the most fast paced e-mail they've ever made. Instant classic. As others have pointed out, an interactive pop-up book is the only thing that could have made it better but I'll forgive them.

How was this even found? The only way I could find it on the site was by typing in the URL, as there are no links to it.

Some people's internet cache clears/refreshes more easily than others. Learn the tricks of your browser, I guess.

And other email for Strong Bad. Thanks, TBC.

Wow, pretty good email. Not as good as last week, but still pretty awesomo. 8/10

Though at the Tandy scene, I was kind o' expecting da BGG to pop up, causing Strong Bad to quickly turn the page. Oh well.

Hey, I'm new. First post! I've been a fan long enought to remember when the Bros. Chaps had a mailing list, or is that my imagination?

Loved this email. Thought it was a big improvement over the emails from a few weeks back, that were dissapointing. i was also hoping for a pop-up book easter egg. 9/10.

Lol, this is the first time in a while i've really laughed hard at a Sbemail.

They should've made the pop up book interactive, so you could pull the flaps yourself.

Don't forget the crap flap!

Hmmmm. The last two emails haven't quite done it for me. The only one that kept me from angrily yawning at the brothers this time was the easter egg which I found rather funny for some reason... I don't know, the last couple just feel like they're trying way too hard, I guess. Still had their enjoyable moments but this one doesn't get any higher than a 5/10 from me if that...

Post subject: 

I dunno...maybe it's because it was too short, or maybe it's because I was distracted when I watched it, but I thought this email was terrible. I feel like TBC just saw that email, thought "hey, a strong bad pop-up book! This person's done the thinking for us!", and went with it. They can do better than that.

I thought that it was a pretty pretty goude. Kind of lacking in the easter egg department, though. I was hoping for an interactive version of the book. Other than that I thought the email was pretty good. I liked SB's song at the begining. Good prize.

Post subject: 

It wasn't as funny as the recent ones. I'll give it a half, 5/10. The good part was the crappy tandy sound. The easter eggs were meh, and the into was pretty good.

That was one great e-mail! that lake-head easter egg is creepy. It really does look like [s]Dumpus[/s] Strong Sad's head!

Oh. My. Word. Of all the last six or so sbemails since the Aught Five, this is definately one of the best yet. I don't think I stopped laughing at any point during this one. Awesome Strong bad rap + even awesomer The Cheat dance + all the other things that may force me to use the word "awesome" again = one very solid sbemail.
Did anyone else notice the recessed lighting on the ceiling? I know that he's mentioned it before, but have we actually seen it until now? Also, and more obvious, Strong Bad's green tongue on that one page. Much coolness indeed.
And so, I shall award this a 9.8 outta 10, with having a homsar or pom pom appearance being the only thing that could hve pushed it over the top.

To be quite frank, this one looks like it was kind of made in an effort to simply produce content. TBC are brilliant- even in times like this, where they just keep pumping stuff out, it's all good- it's just that I don't feel this stacks up very well against what else they have done in the past.

I agree with a few comments saying that it brushed through the meat of the e-mail too fast. However, there were definitely some inspired moments of lunacy, with The Cheato Bandito, the rap at the beginning, the easter egg with Bubs, and of course, the Crap Flap. 6 and a half King of Towns out of 10.

:kot: :kot: :kot: :kot: :kot: :kot: 1/2

Something tells me they found a really good e-mail for 150, and they're keeping it reserved so they can arrive on a really high note. I wouldn't be surprised if they're working on 150 right now, ready to spring it upon the public as soon as they find the next three to answer.
