If you were able to update Strong Bad's SBEmail rock opera (by continuing with the one word from each email up now through 200), how would you do so?

Here's how I'd do it (without any intonation), picking up where the real opera leaves off:

...Famous ladies always like SBEMAIL!!!!!
Sometimes, gleaming lyrical trash hurt school!
Sultriness, hug me and cool against pretender kindergarten.
Pants feel not misspelled and British!
Magic fresh business cover brightly send rage!
Bring complete degrees on fun speed!
Winner crowns!
Well, start hearing!
Closely clean tampered popcorn!
Check work tearing giant lunch!
Breaking golf fashionably shabby.
Eat absurd pizza endlessly!
Cracked roasting mountains!
Historical dancing. Whoa!
Hot sandwich novelty!
Public ruins Norwegian breakfast!
Toyless linens. Ooh!
Pants hurt my SBEMAILS!!!!!!!!

I'll mention the contexts later. What do you think, and how would you do your own take on SB's rock opera?

I know it's been a long time since it's been added, but I decided to go ahead and do some of the contexts for the additional words. The sentences (and thus the words in the song) are spoken by Strong Bad unless otherwise indicated. Here's the first few (the words in bold represent words in the song):

  • 126. BEST THING: And sometimes the magical prankster Bozar appears and turns reality upside-down.
  • 127. LONG PANTS: (Homestar:) Long, my pants! Gleaming pants! Glorious pants!
  • 128. RAMPAGE: And don't forget the lyrical rampages me and Coach Z are always going on.
  • 129. GARAGE SALE: Obviously, wasting your Saturday morning just to sell $3.19 worth of trash isn't the real reason to have a garage sale.
  • 130. DO OVER: (Strong Mad:) DON'T HURT THE CHEAT!!
  • 131. BORING (REALLY): (Bubs:) Yep, I remember learning that in school.

What do you think so far?

Pop-Up: "Magic Eye? Don't forget the flab-tab!"

Lady Fan: "Fresh from the dryer!"

Disconnected: "Maybe this running business isn't for you." or "Ol' Strammy's gone and quit the running business!"

Candy Product: "...and cover it with rich, creamy pepperoni."

Alternate Universe: "You brightly-coloured baboon! You've ruined my vaudeville!"

Senior Prom: "I will pay my dues when you send me my tusks!"

ISP: "No, but you can have a heapin' helpin' of my unbridled rage!"

Theme Song: "I got fourteen degrees while on my lunch take."

Road Trip: "Good morning, Mr E-mail, there's a call for you, on line two." or "Do you ever go on road trips with your gang?" or "And one thing I've found is that every good road trip needs a good inside joke that only the people that went on the road trip will get. And your friends that didn't go on the road trip will want to kill your legs every time you bring it up. These days, I make up the inside joke before I go on the road trip, just in case one doesn't happen." or "That was pretty poor planning on my part." or "Or, more accurately, our car trip, since we didn't go on any roads. Or, even more accurately, our car, since we didn't go on any trips either. So yeah, Pete from Pete's parents' basement, I go on car with my gang all the time."

Trading Cards: "Next up, we got the Cheat's trading card game, which is really more like a trading card activity or trading card goings-on, because the word 'game' implies fun and enjoyment."

Retirement: "Zero capitalisation ... misspelling ... lack of punctuation ... looks like a winner to me!"

Colouring: "Teacherman, are we just going to talk about crowns all day?" or "Crowns! You know, for colouring! A box of crowns!"

4 Branches: "Well, my good Spank, that is way too broad a subject and would take several days just to scratch the surface of the tip of that iceberg." or "Well, I was in Barbados, hanging a picture on the wall." or "Oh well, just forget it. I'll stay in here for the rest of my life." or "Well, sometimes Homestar does something so stupid, he flips back to smart." or "Well, the force between any two charges is equal to the absolute value of the multiple of the charges divided by 4 pi times the vacuum permittivity times the distance squared between the two charges."

The Chair: "We'll start at the tip and work our way to the top!"

What I Want: "Who can really appreciate the song when all you're hearing is the plastic gears and motors clanking together in an effort to barely bust some sort of move?"

Unnatural: "And that's when I tampered with the DNA evidence!"

The Movies: "And if you think the guy sitting next to you munching popcorn is bad, try going to a theatre where people regularly sneak in their own all-you-can-eat fajitas!"

The Paper: "Why do all my 30-year-old electronics keep breaking on me!?"

Mini-Golf: "I was wondering if Strongbadia had a miniature golf course because I think it would be cool if Strongbadia had a miniature golf course. Hoping to play the Strongbadia miniature golf course soon..." or "What, are you getting paid everytime you say the words 'miniature golf course'? Because I'd, miniature golf course, like to get in on that ac-miniature-golf-course-tion." or "Of, miniature golf course, course, I don't sell out for cheap." or "Anyways, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, mini-golf. Strong Badia doesn't have a place of its own, so when we need to get our tiny golf on, we usually head over to Sweet Puttin' Cakes." or "It's just like, one minute, you're thinking about miniature golf..." or "The place isn't above some of the usual mini-golf transgressions though." or "The 18th hole puts a unique twist on the standard bottomless-hole-that-sucks-your-golf-ball-away-forever hole."

This is just a front to meet some girls!" or "The Cheat, in our effort to make a pretend pizza place in order to score some chicks, we somehow created a successful and well-reviewed actual pizza place!" or "Rustic and filled with old-world cardboard charm, the Pizz serves up Strong Badian-style pizza at a price that won't leave a dent in your wallet!" or "Welcome to virtualpizz.biz! Where typical college girls can customize their own slice of pizza for some serious social networking." or "You're not Daphne. You're... pizza trolls!" or "I dunno how to get Daphne and her girls to come to my pizza joint." or "What do you mean, they're at your pizza joint? What pizza joint? The Pizz has competition?" or "That's your pizza joint. Grill with some tape on it." or "Despite a strong showing from fan favourite Strong Sad, the email ultimately fizzles due to a heavy reliance on what can only be called 'internet pizza jokes'."

Environment: "Whoa! I knew the Lappy was awesome, but I had no idea about her destructive power!"

Winter Pool: "All I remember after I closed my eyes, was that first, it got real loud, then it got real hot, then it got real slimy, then it got quiet, and then it got...unspeakable.

Fan Club: "Suddenly, an 8-foot sub sandwich constrictor engsmsploded out of nowhere!"

Pet Show: "It's going to be a piece of novelty dessert pizza!"

Licensed: "I'm a public flasher!"

Buried: "Do you know whether or not there any ancient ruins buried deep under Strong Badia?" or "I never really thought that there might be any ancient ruins down there, though." or "Where there's ruins, there's riches!" or "Quit ruining my ruins, Jurassic Dork!" or "Yeah, yeah, just bury it wherever. But if you uncover any ruins, or hot aliens, or riches, they're mine, OK?" or "So no, Pascual Perez, there are no ruins buried under Strong Badia."

Shapeshifter: "Norwegian deals! It worked! This should only take a few seconds!"

Rated: "Then in RRR-rated movies, you can show bullets go all the way through people! In the front, through their guts and organs and breakfast and right out the back!" or "They even banned those movies in Transylvania, where you're required by law to eat puppies for breakfast." or "Look at all that breakfast."

Specially-Marked: "That dotted line you expect me to cut along is like a toyless slap in my face!"

Love Poems: "Your hair flows like fresh cotton linens hung to dry on the deck."

Hiding: "Ooh, that's way better! I'll hide, and you'll seek!"

Your Edge: "I always keep a spare pack in my pants. Some would say 'pocket'; I say 'in my pants'."

Magic Trick: "This may hurt a lottle!"

Being Mean: "I know you think being mean is fun, but I'm trying to teachmy kids that it isn't right." or "I'm trying to teach my wounded, bleeding sea lions that tearing other creatures apart is not the answer, and I immediately thought of you!" or "Thanks, Strong Bad. Did you want some of my..." or "I wish my parents would stop fighting." or "IS THIS MY CUE?" or "My parents' room is out of town in my car." or "My name's Coach Z and I likes to get noice!"

E-mail Thunder: "200 Sbemails, exhausting just to think about / How can we face 200 Sbemails? / The thought of all those Sbemails makes me weak!" or "You've got sbemails, I've got hremails!"

And now that there are five more e-mails, maybe five more words could be added to the opera?
