Did I just catch an email before the wiki did?!? Seems so... :D

Official link
Wiki link

Hehe. "Bubs and Green Bubs". XD The part with the "yellow sheet that wasn't always yellow" was kinda gross though. :P But Homestar being... well... Homestar is always great. Nice reference to "Bullhonkey" from "record book" too.

I didn't like it at first, but probably just because it felt more like a toon and I wasn't expecting that. It's true about the road trip inside jokes. There's always one person who's all about that and everyone else just wants that guy to shut up. (one trip I had to keep a list of "banned phrases" just so we'd stop repeating the same stuff over and over!)

Not amazing, but not horrible.

It wasn't too bad. It kinda reminded me of the road trip I went on a few months ago. Needles California!

I do like the Coachz/Bubs egg at the end though. Just click on everybody.

That was funny.

ROAD TRIP! That was entertaining. Especially the cans of Bull Honkey Caffeinergy Sauce (do they give you wings, I wonder?), the "forwards compatible" 8-track player, and SB and teh C. going stir-crazy and having to be rescued by Officer Cheese-for-butt, AKA Homestar.

That wasn't too bad. Nice to see the Gremlin's really becoming a place of it's own. Not the best ever, but not bad. Better than last Monday anyways. :)

Wow, kudos Saturn. You did indeed catch this before H*R Wiki did. Man, you must have the reflexes of a mongoose!

Anyways, this email seemed... different to me. I mean, it could almost be a full-blown H*R toon! Or... a short for that matter. I mean, it just didn't seem to have the Strong Bad Email-feel, you know? Instead of cutting to different situations with Strong Bad narrating, this email focused on one story... without narration. Nothing was reall spawned from SB's own imagination, (everything actually happened), and there was actually a problem the characters had to solve. I mean, I this hasn't been the first Sbemail with this feel, but it's been the first in awhile.

But that's just my two cents. I actually quite liked this email. The whole idea of a complete dud road trip proved increasingly hilarious for me. I LOVED how TBC decided to bring back the Gremlin for this email. It was the perfect dud car for the perfect dud road trip. The idea of "Bull Honkey" also scored points with me, I'd like to try some of that stuff! Oh, and Homestar also appeared at the perfect time, he always shows up with his A-game. :mrgreen: So yeah, this was a bit of alright. That "not-originally-yellow-spotted sheet" was a bit disturbing, but whateva!

Yeah, this email did feel a bit more... toon like than the average email does. Maybe because it was more plot-based, I guess? Not saying that's a bad thing of course, just that I definitely noticed that, too.

Anyway, I kinda like how they have a little "storyline" going on with the Gremlin here. XD Lemme explain... okay, going by Strong Bad's remark about the doors and windows not working, apparently the Gremlin belongs to, or at least at one point did belong to Bubs (who probably just incorperated his real-life car into his side of the story in Homestarloween Party). Way back in "car" Strong Bad says he didn't own a car, yet in "pop-up" The Cheat apparently wins a car from Bubs, which we can assume is the Gremlin itself. So it seems that Strong Bad actually does own a car now, as some people had speculated back when "pop-up" first came out, and this email pretty much confirms it. :P

YAY CONTINUITY.

Yeah... I put waaayyy too much thought into these kinda things. XD;

Oh SNAP! You sure have done your research sir! As far as my knowledge goes... I do believe you're right. The fact that TBC decided to continue that whole sharade is quite remarkable. It's a relief too, because I've always loved the Gremlin.

Oh, and by the way. I too loved the Bubs-Coach Z Easter Egg, those two are the perfect odd couple... :p

I found it quite funny, though it probably would have been even cooler to see Strong Bad and The Cheat on a real road trip. It is nice that they're taking Homestar Runner to a new level thematically, though.

You mean there really is a Needles Calafornia? Cool!

Not a bad email. Not one of my favourites but not one of my least favourites either.

"I've lost two pounds in the last nine months, thank you very much."

Oh, really. *snicker* Maybe you should cut down on the petrifries.

Count me in for the 'freaked out by the not-originally-yellow sheet' crew. Euggh.

That was a cool e-mail. My favorite part was probably when The Cheat tried stuffing the CD into the cassette slot.

Best Parts:

- Bull Honkey
- Melt Shake?
- The Cheat trying to put a CD inside an 8-Track Tape Player!!! ROFL!

This, is easily one of the better emails, didn't make me laugh as much but still, it was good!

8/10

I didn't know about this email for a long time. I was just going by what the main menu told me.

Anyway, I liked how Strong Bad's road trip ended up to be a car, since he didn't go on any roads and never took a trip.
9/10

I'm actually a bit amused by the not originally yellow-spotted sheet The Cheat used that came out of Strong Sad's bedroom. Not only does it make me thing (Eww, I'm creeped out), but it's also really funny. Unless I'm karma'd into doing the same thing in the next few nights.

I loved it.

Homestar referring to Sb and Teh C. as lovers made me do a mental double take. Forget the yellow spotted sheet; the idea of SB and The Cheat making out is this week's
:eek: jibbly of the week :eek:


brought to you by kee producers worldwide.


Overall this email gets :senor: :senor: :ehsteve: + (caffienated :sm:) / :senor: :senor: :senor: :senor:

That, or the doors weren't broken then. They could have been broken after the Dangeresque series.

:sb:: "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."

Lmao, I love that line. Strong Bad always creates the most hilarious, nonsensical phrases during his email ramblings. :p

Inside Jokes.
That made me laugh, since pretty much every kid I know has some stupid inside joke thing that they bring up every 5 seconds, including me :P

I give this email a JUMBO/Large. Or something. I don't know.

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