I mean the whole Coach Z stalking stuff was comic gold, but that's about as far as I wanted TBC to go.
So wait, you find that people being stalked is funny, but saying the word bra is edgy? Can anyone explain that to me?





Oh, a, how you say, TOTPD...... :eekdance:

The dealin burgers thing was funny... the rest felt like a lot of recycled gags from old emails. Specifically dragon with Strong Mad and The Cheat. Although dragon was a better email.... err, sbemail.

Not that great. Not that bad. Not worth remembering really.

Great. I like this one. Best parts are:

:sm: I'll wait for you!!!

and :hr: with the lighter in the easter egg.

4/5

I thought this email was sort of meh-ish.

Strong Bad somehow getting his head in that thing was pretty funny, though.

... in a cartoon that briefly mentions bras, and does a direct reference to paedophiles, the bra is "edgy"?

The Keyswordtar was the best thing, I think. It's what will be remembered possibly even more than "Dealin' Burgers"(as that was a joke rather than a possible pseudo character :P).

Well, I've got mixed feelings. It gave a few laughs, and wasn't horrible, by any means, but I'm looking forward to the next Dragon, Different Town, or another great one. But we can all look forward to the Decemberween Toon that will be a-coming along.
Oh, and 4 out of 5.

Not bad. I liked The Cheat's museum break-in, "Banks Have Money", Strong Bad, head stuck, wondering how he got in there, and the Homestar easter egg.

I was expecting Strong Sad to try to create a portrait, but then again, seeing what happened in "dragon"...

...I assume when you were young your parents didn't let you watch The Little Mermaid, right?

This email gets 8 bra's out of 10. O noes I said bra.

Sweet merciful crap, peoples. Don't start this "edgy" crap, AGAIN!.. PLEASE.

I didn't get this email.. It was cute, but, just not as funny as Space Program or Bedtime Story.

It had its moments, like the thing about the velvet painting (funny cus I know people that have those things) and the "quit making up names for yourself" thing, but, in general, it just didn't work for me.

Through various techniques of technological wizardry, I've uploaded the Rad Rad Robotank art from the email (139 "Portrait").

The tank is real clean since it's based on the printable image, while the lettering is not as pure since it had to be extracted from the toon itself.

Enjoy!

That was weird, but weird in a good way. I liked the various styles of pictures.

Favorite line:
STRONG BAD: Like I couldn't have gone down to the kindergarten and hired a five-year-old to make me one of those....except that sounds pretty creepy and I'd probably go to jail.


7.8/10

This is what it says:

{Cut to a shot of Strong Bad, who has somehow fit his head into a wooden cutout of a muscular man holding a sword with a keyboard on it. The man has "SB" written on his stomach and is holding a falcon. His one visible leg wears a boot that looks vaguely similar to a 'Lectric Boot…

First of all, that's not a boot. It's clearly some sort of wacky mechanical prosthetic foot. Secondly, it looks to me as if the SB on the cutout's stomach isn't so much 'written on his stomach' as it is 'formed out of abs' which strikes me as both more funny and in character. I'm not changing the wiki because a) I don't know how and b) it seems someone might contest my second point so I thought I'd ask what ya'll think instead.

I agree 100%. My viewing never suggested writing to me, it was clearly abdominal muscles. I specifically recall processing that detail as such!

Come to think about it, combined with the mechanical boot detail, it seems the wiki author is not in tune with the HRniverse... *oo-oo!* I think an HRnivore should wholly consume them and then fire them skyward from its HRse. *bleh*

Further contemplation seems to reveal that the Brothers Chaps so often utilize not so much physical humor, as anatomical humor. (Reinforced by the "aforementioned", and recently utilized, "controversial" issues.)

There's got to be some Freudian or Jungian something-or-other at work here!

Not very funny at all, but I laughed at "Thanks for breaking my moose lamp." Also, Dealin' Burgers is classic.

Shut. Up.

It was just one below-average email. It has NOT jumped the shark. If anything, YOU'VE jumped the shark. OK? Good. Glad we got that sorted out.

Gasp! Your still alive, well at least Your giant sig makes Me laugh.
Out of all the portrait styles, I wonder why TBC picked those crappy news paper pictures, that strongio de badio painting was pretty funny, but it was kinda short so I give it a 7/10.

Unfortunately, the editing in hrwiki articles is disabled, and regarding the scene where the cheat vandalises the painting, nobody seems to have got the main point of that scene.

It is true that the tank is like the newgrounds logo and it's optimus prime's head popping out of it, but also the act of vandalism on an oil painting by adding a war related object using a stencil is strikingly similar to mr Banksy's works.

I plead anybody who reads this post and can edit articles in hrwiki to correct this omission

I watched it again a few times. Now I think the best part of the Email was the newspaper.
"I want a cell phone that is quite large" is just weird enough to be hilarious for me.

I liked it, although I think it wasn't that great. I've seen better. But still, a solid email.

This was a prooty good email, but not great. I liked the Key-sword-tar, and Lord Quackingstick, though. Those were awesome. Oh, and I liked the word "PFFT!" carved in the trailer wall!
