That was funny.. I loved the Lou Dobbs/Brent Musburger autograph easter egg. That was funny.
The whole Club Technochocolate thing was kinda cute. It's amazing how TBC can do music like that. They're great.
To top it off, we had an appearance of my main man, StrongMad!
BLUE SOCK!! BLUE SOCK!!/10..

Good email. Bad premise.

Get up noise or Geddup noise. No matter how you spell it, the point is that it isn't possible to make that sound on a carpet floor. Even TBC discussed this reality in a DVD commentary on strongbad_email.exe.

As far as this emails goes, I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice the deviation from the usual Concession Stand sign:

I love it when TBC take a stupid concept and run with it until it becomes hilarious.

Well, I liked it, mainly for the cameos (Gavin, Homestar the host, Crude Crew), but Strong Sad kinda felt out of character. Anywho, I give it the Not Bad After a Hiatus award.

Of course, but that just means it's one more thing that fits right in with everything else going on in the H*R world. It isn't exactly possible to type accurately with boxing gloves on or elevate objects with no arms either. We've been through all this before. ;)

Well I'm surprised how many people have been trashing this email. Usually every here says it's the best thing since sliced bread, and I'm left going "huh? It wasn't that funny."
But this one I really enjoyed. Especially Club-Technocholcate. I sure hope THAT one is on their next CD...

Yeah, me too. It was a kinda cool song.

This e-mail wasn't bad. It had some really funny moments, such as Strong Mad's Blue Sock puppet, and Strong Sad's t-shirts.

I give it a 3/5. A solid email, I thought. I'd normally rate this one average, but the song and Strong Mad's Blue Sock pushed it to a 3.

Yes...I'm pleased with this email.

I quite liked this one, especially Strong Sad representin' for the indie crowd. I'm baffled where it came from though, I mean, I just checked Lady...ing, and the geddup noise is right there on the end

Well, ya'll wanted an email. Here it is. Then after five more, the "too many emails" b****ing will begin again.

It was pretty good. Not the best of recent emails, but it had its moments.

Wow, this one certainly caught me off guard. The whole email had a very surreal feel, but in a good, Five Minute Story Hour kinda way. Tons of great, subtle in-jokes (Boardelectrix for one), and a pretty good job with such a bizarre premise. Definitely a solid one. I gives it a B.

I'd just like to say that I didn't so I don't sound like someone who complained about not having one and then complained about the quality. I don't think I even participated in any "Not enough/too many emails" topics.

I really liked this one. I cracked up at the Lou Dobbs part, since it just came out of left field.

I mean, come on, Lou Dobbs? ;)

I give it an 8/10.

This one was so funny! It's so much better than the previous few. The hiatus has enabled them to go about this with ease again, and not be forced. It's no Kid's Book or Interview, but it had me smiling the whole time. :)

Eh. This email seems to just be thrown together with random scenes. I like emails you can follow, that have a basic plot to them. There were some funny parts, though.

It was funny. Strong Sad's comment about the advertising cracked me up! And they had to have the computer room turn back on! They just did. Seriously.

It was alright. Although I would have favored Strong Sad's radio voice, but then it wouldn't make sense.

8/10 Good, but not the best.

Strange... enjoyable, but not laugh out loudable. I truly do appreciate what TBC are able to do, this one just didn't strike me as funny.

Don't get me wrong. The email certainly had its funny moments (all of which have been mentioned here). Just the overall email wasn't that funny.

Glad to see that strong bad is back.

(and as for strange dialog boxes... here's one I got when I was installing drivers for my monitor)
