"This dinner party is top dollar!"
The THNIKKAMAN! part was probably the best.
The whole e-mail is full of hilarious quotes!
10/10

I never would have expected that ending. Never. Not even if the title was a neon sign that constantly flashed in my face. I'm pretty stupid sometimes. I almost can't wait to see what has become of the Lappy. =o
Anyways, awesome SBemail.
Favourite parts:
- This dinner party is top dollar!
- You missed unmasking the Thnikkaman!!! Because you have really bad hand-eye coordination!!!
- I'm... pregnant!
- Sports team?
This one totally gets a five outa five.

this made me laugh out loud, which is a really hard thing to do.
The "pregnant" part didn't make me smile, though.

Anyhoo, 10/10

I loved the references to The Big Lebowski with the toe-cutting-off and all.

The lappy kidnapped herself! :O

I hope not. TBC has stated that the day when Marzy and Homestar has kids, then that's the day when they have Jumped the Shark. And I sure hope that hasn't happened.

It was... A'ight... Thnikkaman part was funny, and the "Resolving of the cliffhangers" in the beginning was great (reminded me of Email #2), but after that it wasn't really all that Laugh-out-loud funny until the end with the BIg Lebowski reference. And I ALWAYS love those.

"Give us ze money, Strong Bad."
"Ya, Uttervize ve kill ze Lappy!"

Maybe the cliff is bottomless? After all, "When you fall in a bottomless pit, you die of starvation".

I rather liked the Thnikkaman's cliffhanger resolution backfiring (and the singers telling us why), and the parallelism in the easter eggs at the end.

Dude, self-referential Easter eggs. There's only one way to celebrate this:

Why do you people say that the Lappy's not been around very long? The Lappy era has had as many emails than the Tandy. It's also true that the early Tandy era ones weren't even a minute long, at that, so Lappy's had much more screentime, maybe barring things like do over. And the Compy era was when every single update was a sbemail. Also noteworthy is the number of important site-breaks TBC took during the Lappy era.

It's been about as long as it was for Tandy and Compy. The Lappy era could easily be over.

Three things:
First, awesome SBEmail, especially the SBASAF part.
Second, would "It's Guacamole and Banana Bread Time!" be a reference to "It's Peanut Butter and Jelly Time!"?
And third, I think the Lappy will be returned, if only because the E-mail menu hasn't changed like when Tandy and Compy blew up.

Best e-mail since Virus! Although I liked Candy Product too. My flav-o-rite part? "It's guacamole and banana bread time, Strap!" Mmm, banana bread. :kot:

Wow. This is one of the best e-mails in a long time. I have not been to impressed with the ol' Strongest of the Bads lately, but this one.... it's incredible. I just... I don't know. At first, it felt a lot like the old sbemail #2. Remember? The whole thing was him dropping the weight on Homsar Blunder? And then all the old material that they made even cooler...my only thing is that I wish Homestar had really had a secret, as in "I'm pregnant!" "no you're not!" "oh, I mean, I'm bored," or something, like when he told Strong Bad he swallowed his computer. Excellent e-mail! I hope we get more e-mails that are less on time and more awesome like this one. 9/10

Good call! I wonder if they had that in mind or if it's just a coincidence.

That's REALLY unlikley, right now the Tandy has more emails on it than the Lappy, and the Tandy only has 40.

Four things might happen....
1: The Lappy 486 will be replaced, which I kinda hope will happen....
2: The Lappy 486 will be returned in a continuation and Strong Bad won't be able to use colons, or semi-colons (not that he does)....
3: There will be a continuation but, the Lappy 486 will be the same as before....
4: This SBE-mail will be completely ignored and nothing will change.....

Whatever happens, an awesome SBE-mail and i can't wait for the next one! :eekdance: I also whonder what happened to :homsar: :kot: (?)
I'll give it 8/10, The Brothers Chaps could have gone without the ironic cliff hanger going against the purpose of the SBE-mail! Still good though!

Actually, this is the Lappy's 40th email.

It was the comma key that was taken, not the colon key.

I bet if you take away them cool shades and rip that "TH" off his chest, underneath, you'd find a thin green man with a big ol' "Z" hanging from his—

Which makes me wonder, what is the Z hanging from? There sure isn't any medallion chain... O_o

Of course there's a cliffhanger where a character reveals they're pregnant. Isn't isn't, like, an FCC requirement now, that every TV show end its season that way?

Anyway, I didn't realize how long it's been since the Lappy was introduced, even though I discovered the site just shortly before then, but I just now checked the (you guys do know we have a) wiki, and apparently it was introduced in November 2004 -- meaning it's been around already more than a third of the time since the Strong Bad Emails first aired (2001). It may very well be time for a new machine. HOWEVER... there's only so much newer Strong Bad's computer can get before it stops being quaint. The Lappy dangerously tows that line already; if he gets a new one now he's going to have to switch to something with a Windows lookalike OS.

Also, wow. This is, like, the first time I can remember an anonymously positive response. Personally I don't see what's so cool about it. Compared to, say, "Technology," "Candy Product," or even "Keep Cool," it's more on par with maybe "ISP" or "Myths & Legends." Clever, funny at points, but not especially hilarious or memorable. Personally I think it would have been funnier if they'd just quit after the KOT fell off the cliff. And then everyone would just be like, Wait, what? Eh.

It wouldn't be worth it to watch a 50 second email
