This one was pretty cool. I'd love to see the Cheat try to actually drive. The best part of this email was definitely Homestar as a not-uniformed cop. 23/30

Wow...seeing Bubs curl his hands into fists is freaky--reminded me of the Wicked Witch of the East's feet after that house dropped on her. They don't look like they ought to be able to do that.

Other than that, the email seemed...okay...meh. 5/10.

Hee hee. I found the fact that Homestar thought The Cheat and Strong Bad were making out was hilarious. And Strong Bad thinking there could be another universe in that splot on the ceiling. Good email. 9/10

Definatley seems to me like e-mails are starting to have the feel to them as the older ones did. I hope TBC continue with this streak of good e-mails.

Heh. I don't normally do slash, but man oh man, does Homestar's line make it teeeempting. XD Cheesebutt. Heh.

That was way too awesome.

Who else is a loser in California like me who used to watch syndicated afternoon shows and see the Jacoby and Meyers commercials all the time?

That utterly killed me. Very laugh out loud moment.

Good times. GOOD times.

A more confusing desire I could not ask for.

Well. Unless it's super hot Cheat on Cheese/Anvil action.

I liked a lot of the jokes, but I saw the update "New Strong Bad E-mail" and I was really hoping for something more... e-maily. This was basically a toon masquerading as an e-mail...

I agree, it was more of a toon than an email, but I still liked it. I hope my email I sent a couple of minutes ago is the next one. :cheatgrin:

I like the concept of this email. And Homestar's appearance and Strong Bad going a little crazy were both good parts. I'd give this email a 73%.

Drat! I sent in two emails like this for two consecutive weeks, besides this one, and NOW they choose to answer one like it :P Aw Well, it was decent, but just decent. 7/10

I had to check back online at least 10 times before this came out, at 9:10 pm! The only easter egg I missed before the wiki completed the article was the bumper sticker one, but it was worth it to see the whole thing. What I liked was when I, too, thought Strong Mad was under the sheet but only a lot of Bull Honkey drinks were there, green Bubs mention, CD crammed into 8-track player, other funny stuff.
It was kinda odd to see that the seat belt straps and 8-track player knobs and buttons had completely thick, black outlines, but I don't think that matters.
Hey, have you noticed the singers in the background sound a little bit like the ones from A Folky Tale when The Dancing Brothers showed up?

Yay! This one was good, I laughed and before the Strongest Man toon they were bad, and now they are picking up!

9.5/10

Ya know, I personally don't see that big of a difference between the general nature of sbemails and toons on H*R, except for of course the way they start and end.

Not bad. Defenitely different from other sbemails, but that's good, it's a nice change. I didn't find the jumbo/LARGE thing funny, though I can see what they were aiming at with it. It had some pretty good quotes, though. So, not bad. Not the greatest, but still pretty good.

I noticed that this email isn't listed on the sbemail menu yet. I haven't seen that happen before.

Lets set things straight:

In dangeresque 3, Strong Bad never drives the car. If you look closely you just see the cheat running back and forth carrying trees. And they have someone roll that tire rim and use camera trickery to make you think its moving. So they really showed some consistency with the gremlin not being able to work

Believe it or not, I emailed Strong Bad about the exact same subject, whether or not he had ever been on a road trip before! And he had to go and answer a guy who called him fatty. I bet the Brothers Chaps pick emails by the funniest and/or most stuff that Strong Bad could comment on version of a question people keep asking, like car.

Actually, that was an 8-track player, not cassette.

Heh, chances are half the people on this site probably have no clue what an 8track is.

GREAT E-MAIL!!!!!!!!!

i thought it was pretty good, better than keep cool, but not as good as theme song. and arent 8 tracks like REALLY old versions of cassettes, like the difference betweeen floppy disks and CDs?

Actually, that's not a bad comparison. Wikipedia knows.

More like the difference between 5.25" and 3.5" floppies, but then probably a lot of people here wouldn't recognise a 5.25" floppy either...

Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

By The Way --

Does anyone think the "Jumbo-LARGE" maxymoron is a play on the oxymoron "Jumbo-SHRIMP"? (And if so, it it worthy of a mention in the Wiki?)

I was thinking of that when I first saw it. Put it up on the Discussion page, and see what they thing.

Heh, my favorite quote was "Forwards compatible".

Also, those hairy french fries were nasty.

I dunno about you guys, but I'm getting tired of Strongbad :sb: . His humor has been overused. It's time we focus on the real comic star, Homestar! :hr:

This...was one of the greatest emails in quite some time. I'm not calling the previous ones bad, but this one is the best of them.

Not really. He never said the car didn't run, just that the doors and windows wouldn't open from the inside. Window's point was, how did he get out when he filmed Dangeresque.
