Bit of a disappointment, I think. Homestar in the tub was funny.

Yeah, this email was definitely one of the most random ones so far. But I liked it. Pretty funny stuff.

It was a pretty decent email! The easter egg was the best part... I missed the grape-nuts bot.

That wasn't the best email ever, but it was worth watching just for the end. Man that cracked me up. 3/5

Man, that was hilarious! How could it have gotten mostly 3's before I cast my vote? I thought the only thing missing was Strong Bad announcing the release date of his Cool Game!

Curious... how do you guys figure out the title of an email before it appears on the menu? Because it's not there yet where I am.

Loved it. The beginning reminded me of the Simpsons when Bart plays hide n seek with Ralph only to leave him in the closet, and then they greatly expanded that joke. I would have loved a Homsar appearence given that the toon was about hiding. Overall the Homestar/Strong Sad trap and the Grapenut Robot cameo made it a classic.

5 outta 5.

It was good, but you just know the kid who sent the email was under the age of 11.

Pretty good, the easter egg, Homestar`s tub scene and " Oh, Parliament" cracked me up. 4/5.

4/5 It was really funny, the two parts that made me crack up the most were when homestar was in the tub and when he said "I have half a mind!"

Liked it, liked it. I thought Strong Bad might've been too cool for hide n' seek (or at least act like it), but I guess I was wrong. 4/5.

It was a solid email, but nothing special compared to the typical level of quality.

Is it just me or is Coach Z's creepiness becoming too central of a character trait?

(Yay! Melonade continues to exist!)

"Ooh, I've been in here..."

That was quite possibly the best thing ever. Somehow, I predict this scene will make another appearance in a slashfic...

All that aside, definite 5/5!

Best quote: "Sleepy pee..."

This was surprisingly entertaining, in all the places where it shouldn't have been. Like Marzipan's protesting. It was a terrible joke, and it really wasn't funny at all, but for some reason, I laugh every time I think about it.

But I guess that's a good thing, right?

4/5.

Easter egg = Genius. 4/5

I gave it a 5/5. I love the more random sbemails like this one!

:hr: Oh, I've been in here.
That gave me a slight case of the jibblies, but in a good way. I guess. Mostly.

:sb: Switch to the Strong Sad bait.
That was hilarious. They apparently do that often.

The ending was funny. Nice twist, there. No, the knight is not Strong Bad's awesome hiding place, but Pom Pom is.

i thought that it was pretty ok, could've been slowed down a little bit.
Seemed to be rushed through.
Overall, I give it a 4.999/5
:cheatgrin: Meh!

Finally, a new sbemail! Though, it wasn't really worth the wait, but I did find some parts funny, like the :sm: behind another :sm: . Though, :hr: in the tub was just plain disturbing. :seizure:

Overall: :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: / :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb: :sb:

I'd like to add, furthermore, heretofore, that the Strong-Mad-hiding-behind-himself scene is another instance of a "it's funny because it makes no sense" gag being ruined by a character pointing out that it makes no sense. The other instance I'm thinking of was when Coach Z said "I think I'm gonna puke my pants!" and instead of cutting off there, they continue having a conversation in which it is revealed that "puke my pants" isn't just a silly portmanteau-phrase TBC came up with, but an actual thing that Coach Z does. It's the oldest mistake in the book: Explaining your joke after you've told it.

The "Oxen Free" scene almost made the same error, but it still worked because of the "Playing a Game!" sign.

I didn't think it was a problem at all. I think the bigger part of the joke lies in Strong Mad being so sure that it would work.

Quite truthfully, I thought it was going to be another instance of character doubles until Strong Mad verified that he "stayed up all night" to make it.
