Definitely an odd one, though it had some great moments in it. Features probably one of the most true lines Strong Bad has ever said regarding Homestar: "It's like, even when we win, he wins."

EDIT: fixed topic title.

That was okay, a 7/10. I loved The Cheat covering up himself with the post-it notes.

This one was ok. Decent, but not great.

I loved that line, however.

I like how to cook a wrestle-man egg.

Heh, I actually really liked this one. It was weird and not a little random, but it had a lot of funny moments. Homestar was great with his Pimecone Diaper Pie. Loved when he ate it. Coach Z and the King of Town were pretty funny, too.

I give it an 8/10.

Woa! Finally, a good e-mail! I love it SO much! This one has the old HR feel to it...I haven't liked ANY of the e-mails since "Radio," and even that one was a little bland.

Coach Z seems to be getting more and more pathetic as the "series" goes on. He's getting more and more like the King of Town. Talking about gross out stuff like "puking his pants," and eating that ice cream just like the KOT would. And they keep showing how poor and lonely he is. I'm not sure if I like this change or not - it's cute as long as they don't take it too far. Perhaps the Coach should move in with the KOT. Take that how you will.

Good points.

-Strong Bad going absolutley nuts twisting words around. Usually I find his plays on words lame (at least as of late), but these ones got chuckles out of me.

-Homestar's expression upon saying "looks like this is a job for..." I don't think he's ever used that one before. It's adorable.

-Shaved The Cheat.

-POST IT NOTED THE CHEAT.

-"It's like, even when we win, he wins."

-The Cheat getting angry and throwing the disk at Strong Bad.

-"How to cook a wrestle man."

Basically, though, I liked every moment of this e-mail, except I'm a bit sceptial of teh Coach slowly becoming teh KOT.

Hmm, I liked this email a lot. I dunno about the King Of Town, but I agree Coach Z was the lowlight of it for me. I mean, I thought his scene in "Homestar Presents: Presents" was funny, but I'm not keen on this increasing emphasis they've been laying on him as, well, kinda vile and creepy. But maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way - he did give Marzipan a scratch-'n'-sniff calendar of himself once, and that was two or three years back now

They really should let him star in another 'toon, maybe it would give his character a chance to develop in a healthier direction

Well when you think about it, Coach Z has always had that sort of creepy, pathetic vibe to him anyway. As has already been mentioned, he gave Marzipan a scratch-and-sniff calendar of himself for Decemberween, and in that same episode we saw him pass out from drinking too much Listerine. Plus, at least a couple Marzipan's Answering Machines have made him out to be a bit of a creepy stalker (such as him talking about letting himself in Marzipan's house through the window).

Granted, they've been emphasizing the creepy/pathetic point a lot more as of late, but I'm not entirely sure it's totally new and/or out of character.

I thought this one was pretty funny. :) Not quite as random as the past few have been, but still crazy enough to be funny. 7/10

My favorite parts:

- Shaved The Cheat w/ Post-It Notes
- The KOT part
- The "Chekt"
- "Pimecone"
- "Even when we win, he wins"

That was fantastic, if not a little crazy. But crazy is good.

Wow, this was the best I've seen in a while. I loved the narrator's comments, and Coach Z's confusion about the basketball. But I think what really sealed this email's fate was the Post-It'D The Cheat. Awexome. And Homestar's disgust over eating cottage cheese and The Cheat hair, but sour cream and The Cheat hair would've been okay. Lots of laughs in this one.

I don't see how you can say this one was "okay" when the "origins" one got such good feedback. I thought this one was hillarious and that origins was very dissapointing. This has been the first one I have liked since virus.


Sorry...before I said this is the first one I liked since virus, which is wrong because I forgot to watch "part-time job" and I thought it was pretty funny.

Hillarious? I invented that while mentioning Hillary Clinton! I'm not sure if I should feel glad or angry that SB said it. :eek:

I hate to break it to you, radiodj19, but you're not the first person to realize that the name "Hillary" is similar to the word "Hilarious".

I do believe this was the first time SB's family has ever been mentioned aside from SS and SM. The randomness doesnt touch that of Virus, but it comes somewhat close. The postit'd Cheat, the KOT eating deoderant (ecch), Homestar eating his own pinecone, etc. made this one of the best Lappy era emails. Dreammail is the only Lappy email that beats it.

Edit: I went back and double checked my statement, and forgot about Origins, which is tied for best. Bellybuttons, chain dancing Teh Cheat, etc. made it good.

This was a great email, if you ask me. Maybe the best since "Virus." Of course, after I'd seen it, I had to go look up the word "couth" to see if it did actually exist.

Couth: adj. "Marked by or possessing a high degree of sophistication; refined." (from dictionary.com)

I'd say that fits Strong Sad to a "T," no?

And now I'm just going to have to make an icon out of post-it-noted The Cheat. ^_^

I'm Rochelle, by the way. A long time reader, first time poster. (LTRFTP?)

Finally, a laugh-out-loud email. This really is the best since... since dangeresque 3, it was so funny. (Although a lot in between were really funny. 3673195463495/10.

I thought that this email was odd, and a little random, but I still liked it. I give it a 8.375/10. My favorite parts were...

-I know you're used to eating fruits, and nectars, and um...lions.
-Homestar spelling the word 'Pimecone", and then eating it.
- "How to cook a wrestleman".

I think the narrarator's comments were a gentle dig towards those people who take the Strong Bad too seriously.

Like they had to explain it us so we would know it was a joke.

I thought this email was extremely funny. There were a lot of little details in this one that will make a second and third watch very nice.

And the Easter Eggs were plentiful and hilarityful.

Oh, yeah, I'm talkin' chocked, my friends.

Eew! Eek! Very gross. But very funny. TBC have been getting extremely random, but that's what H*R's form of humor is, so that's what we should expect. I had a better post than this, but when I was going to post it, HRWiki went down. :(

7.4/10: Not the best ever, but still good. Good prize, good laugh.

Hillary Clinton was the First Lady under the Clinton administration.

I don't see much of a connection Hilary to hilarious.(?)
Edit: Oh! wait. Not the meaning, the pronounciation. I get it.
