HOLD IT! That plotline seems very familiar, I thought I emailed Strong Bad about redesigning his room just last week...OMG!!!

Funniest Parts:
- No! Not Red!
- Electronic "No Loafing" sign
- Yay, The Cheat has a new computer, he updated his iMac to a parody of the new flat screen ones...complete with a parody of Mac OS X!
- Green Screen makes SB's eyes dissapear and most of Coach Z's body...:D
- Yet another instance of Bread
- Claymation?
- ReDesigning SBEMAILS Jerk (something) For Under 50 Bucks!

One of the better emails, but still Virus and Origins are still my favourites!


p.s. For the record, here's what I sent:

Dear Strong Bad,

Have you ever thought of redecorating your Computer Room? Your basement is all full of life...but your computer room is so dull and boring!

Okay, they changed the name at the end, but I am from Canada too though...that might be proof enough that they found long does it take exactly to make one of those movies again?

Dag. Just too late to post a notice.

In any case, I must applaud TBC for this new email. In all honesty, this is the first one that has made me laugh out loud since "bottom 10".

Good jorb. I liked it a lot.

Green Screen. Awesome.
We need a No Loafing emoticon.
All for under 50 bucks.
I'll give it a backwards Ramrod out of Pom Pom.
Dormar/ :pom:

I found this one of the weirdest and worst, that e-mail didn't make me laugh at all, they think going abnormal is going to make the people like it. Well not for me, man now i'm all cheesed off, THANKS ALOT TBC! NOT! the only thing i did like was they changed the menu song.

Just because you didn't like an email doesn't mean you should take it out on TBC, I don't like all of them, but I don't go saying, "THANKS ALOT TBC! NOT!" I mean, c'mon dude, they worked hard on that and that's what they get?

This email rocked. At first, when I saw Strongbad's eyes missing in the green screen shot, I thought it was a glitch, but then I was like, Strongbad's eyes are green, aren't they? The dot sign was cool as well, since one of my teachers this year had one. I also thought that Strongbad was going to redesign his computer room, but we got the seashell knobs on the washer in the laundry room instead... :P

I liked it. It wasn't supa-dupa, but grood nonetheless. I really liked Strong Bad's mispronunciation of Jamie, and the growling guys at the end - Yorp! Yorp! Yorp! Frickin' comedic gold. Strong Bad's transparent eyes and Coach Z's transparent self were also awexome.

That's a good one!

lol disappearing eyes!
That happened to a girl in my TV production class (but it wasn't as noticible, since her eyes weren't 1/5 the size of her head).

I thought this was pretty funny. What was up with the mispronounciation of Jamie? It was kinda scary, but in a funny way, like a clown.

This was a funny email!

Good parts:
-Strong Bad's eyes diappearing
-battling clamation
-Coach Z's body dissappearing and his redesigned logo
-Easter egg at the end. "yorp yorp yorp" lol

Good prize. Ding.

Haha that was great. The elementary school No Loafing sign, the purty brown shiny No Loafing sign, and the green screen give this a 9/10.
And that echo thing was priceless.

HA! As a graphic designer myself I can say I definitely got a kick out of the No Loafing part. XD; Squish it, skew it, turn it all around!

So The Cheat has a new computer eh? Wonder what's going to happen to the old one? Maybe it'll become Strong Bad's fourth computer when/if something ever happens to the Lappy. I doubt it, but you never know...

The claymation part was fifteen kinds of awesome. And the rest of the green-screen sequence really. I cracked up at SB's lack of eyes, and when the invisible Coach Z showed up. :) I hope they turn Sundae Drivin' into a real game or something.

For some reason... I thought the little fanged Z-emblem going "Yorp yorp yorp!" was adorable... o.o

Dude, your avatar is WAAAAAAAAAAAY too big.

and, umm, I suppose you can feel that way, but I don't think you should complain. I mean, it's not like you sent them $10 to make it, did you?

Not a bad one...I laughed pretty good when Coach Z showed up...or didn't show up, as the case may be...with his imitation logo redesign. 6/10.

One of my favourites, I think.

Enjoyable...Very enjoyable...The bread isle was good, and so was Coach Z being half invisible......Funny. A solid sbemail.

I loved the part when he was redesigning the laundry room. Looked just like one of those shows you see on TLC or something.

It was grand! This one actually made me laugh out loud a couple times. Not the greatest, but still pretty good. 8/10

I don't think I laughed out loud, but it wasn't bad.

Ehhhh, I dunno. Pretty weak opening with the logo, but the green screen part was alright. It somehow seemed like an older email while at the same time following the Lappy formula. I'll give it a high D+ or a low C-, it's right on the line.

Hmm... Nah. I understand why it should be funny, but I didn't laugh once.

Well, personally I didn't think that was the Best Sbemail Ever or anything, but I was thrilled to have Strong Bad back anyhow.

:sb: : "Well, I don't know how we're going to print it out, seeing as how somebody sliced off the back of your monitor. And quit rubbing that plastic bar of soap on the desk. You clearly don't have what it takes to bring NO LOAFING into the digital age."

Ya squish it, & skew it, & turn it all around. Ya squish it, & skew it, & turn it all around. Ya squish it, & skew it, & turn it all around.

Like Flo-Jo in a tuxedo!


Yorp, yorp, yorp, yorp....

Hilarious SBemail. One of the best Lappy ones ever! 9/10

Pure Sbemail gold. I've really been loving sbemail ALL OVER AGAIN lately! It's like, as good as it was when I first came to H*R now. Wow. It seemed like for awhile, it had fell in quality, but ever since around death metal... I've liked pretty much all of them.

And this one is also great. I never would've thought of a scrollable sign! I hope strongbad keeps it and whenever we pan over there in the future... the sign scrolls by and occasionally gives us different crazy new messages. lol. In addition to classic No Loafing of course!

Now this is an email I wouldn't mind watching all the time. What's not to love about it? I already watched it over 4 times and I never got tired of it. I used my camera phone to record the whole thing plus the easter eggs so I wouldn't have to watch it again online. I really thought that "squish it, skew it, and turn it all around" part was still catchy, even after the 2nd time. I also think that it's amazing how that no loafing sign is customized. What made me lol for the first time were the echoing, SB smiling unexpectedly when saying "but I does" (as well as frolicking in front of the bread aisle wall), the claymation with Strong Mad's voice embedded for like 2 seconds, and the yorping stylized Z medallion. I gives it a 99.99999999999999999999%
