It's probably because there's only two wiki editors online at the moment. I just added it. I'm still really new at this.

Yay, Shwoo! Isn't it fun to work on this without ten million edit conflicts? :-D

And you should stop saying that you're new at this. With the good work you're doing, nobody would know anyway ;-)

Yes, it is. :) Though an hour of my time just vanished into thin air without me noticing. And okay, but I really didn't know what I was doing.

I thought the email was pretty funny, but it didn't have much substance. I think it's interesting that Strong Bad wants a hot stepsister for X-berween.

Yeah, the hot step-sister was somewhat disturbing... but the Homestar Easter Egg was one of the best ever :-)

I thought the dancing doll was singing 'different town' at first..

This email was a little confusing with the advomercial format, but it was quite funny.

(to who's wife needs a calculator?)

I loved this one, but that's probably cause my friend has like a million dancing hamsters. He always loves them, and I'm just listening as hard as I can to figure out what song they're singing.

So it was entertaining to see the nobots attempt to sing.

Whoohoo! Wildebeest Pheromones!

And is this the rare email where Homestar doesn't appear as a character? It seems TBC have become obsessed with sticking him in every single freakin' email so people will remember why they have the domain registered the way they do. I guess they figured the dancing HS would do, and it did; I think I laughed more than I did at that then any of the more recent "I'm here to make a fool of myself" appearances he's made.

Oh, and Strong Bad's Narcissism is beginning to disturb me...

What? No reference to QVC in the wiki? I know that the whole Z'ShopChan bit reminds me of that channel where stuff for X-mas/X-berween is given away.
9/10 (1 off for only one easter egg at end, but oh well)

HAHA YES. I laughed so hard at the ornament thing, I've always wondered WHY people think it's actually a good idea to give people CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS for CHRISTMAS. "Here you go, a gift you won't actually be able to USE for a whole 'nother YEAR".

"Where'd you get your name? George Lucas?" XD I love that.

I liked the good amount of inside references in this one too... the Fhqwhgads song, another appearance of afro!Coach Z, the Eh Steve ornament.... :ehsteve: Kind of a short email, but it was pretty fun all the way through, so it's all good.

I think I want that Coach Z ornament. I have no clue why, but I want one.

I want that Homestar nobot that has those boneless legs. That thing is freaking sweet.

Great e-mail. Not very labor intensive and over the top for the wiki. It fits my mood today just perfect.

I found this one to be missing something. I was disappointed but maybe that's just because I thought I sent a pretty good email this week. Still, I felt there to be no good past references, no unusual characters, and not the usual humor. Though I did like the thing about getting ornaments for next Xmas.

0: Hated it
1: Okay, don't recommend
2: Pretty good, recommend
3: Really good
4: Best one ever

This one gets a 2.5

A bit on the "fluffy" side, yeah, but it definitely got a whole string of giggles out of me. "Where'd you get your name? George Lucas?" to Strong Bad being hypnotized by the Nobot! Didn't like the Easter egg so much, but it was great to see Everybody to the Limit again. Darn catchy song, that! And thank goodness somebody finally said something about those infernal raindeer! Klibber sounds like the name of a Kremling from Donkey Kong...

Rock. SBemail. I absolutely loved the Christmas thyme, because I'm really, REALLY excited for Christmas. And the ornament thing... hehehe... I MADE a crappy nutcracker ornament out of a clothespin for school like a few years ago. XD

I thought this one was pretty good. The only thing that really made me laugh was Strong Bad wanting a subscription to EGM2.

I thought this sbemail was hilarious. It's good to see Marzipan and Strong Bad work together and ACTUALLY get along. They definately make better anouncing partners than Maripan and Coach Z.

Add me to the list of people who would like a Coach Z ornament. I wonder if TBC will actually start selling some of that crap?

No, more of a character from Banjo Kazooie.

It sure was a semi-relaxing e-mail after all this randomness. Tee-hee. :)

Not really the best email, but still funny. I liked :sb: and :marzi: working together and the :sb: and :hr: dancing things.

That was pretty entertaining. Some of my favorite parts were the shopping channel parody set-up, Strong Sad calling to complain about wildebeest pheremones, and Strong Bad making fun of those annoying motion-activated "singing" and "dancing" toys. It was kinda odd to see Strong Bad and Marzipan agree on something (but then again, who in their right mind likes gyrating plastic "nobots" that make so much noise from just moving, you can barely hear the garbled Top 40 hit of the week they're playing?)

EDIT: And I agree with Strong Bad, "Talon Jendro" sounds like something out of the Star Wars Name Generator.

I actually found this one much more entertaining then the last one. I really found the whole shopping channel thing and 'nobot' parts. This one has to be the best one in awhile if I do say so myself...

I didn't laugh out loud until the very end with the Homestar easter egg. Garbled everybody, everybody!

No, more of a character from Banjo Kazooie.

Banjo-Kazooie wasn't big on the names starting with K, as I recall. I guess they all got used on Kremlings.

I want one of those ornaments too.
