I liked this one. The Bubs tihng was pretty funny.

I'm also sure that Strong Bad was lying about this whole thing. :p

OMG this was the best thing ever. I was expecting one or two more disasters, but it went on so long and there were so many easter eggs, so I let it stay at just one. SB giving himself an upside-down swirlie was strangely hilarious, and I've always wanted to see Marzipan beg Strong Bad to recycle.

Hehe, good email. Did anyone else notice The Cheat in the "all-talking at once thing" twice?

"And that's when I tampered with the DNA evidence!"

Well, that explains what Marzipan was talking about in the previous email. XD

Little thing I noticed:

strong badathlon - Marzipan at a tea party - "And that's why I believe the DNA evidence had been tampered with."

unnatural - Strong Bad at a tea party - "And that's when I tampered with the DNA evidence!"

Coincidence: I think not!

This e-mail was good. Lot of great humor, Homestar beliving that Bubs had turned them all into ants, Strong Bad and the DNA, apostrapheholics, ect. ect.

7/10

HAHA, I MUST GO DRAW A GIANT MONSTER-BUBS NOW. ehehehe! :D

I was half expecting Strong Sad to go all Godzilla-mode to fight Bubs for a second there... which would've been pretty awesome IMO but maybe that's just me XD

I love the Hurricanesnstuff, "Bubs gonna turn you all into ANTS!", and toilet easter eggs, haha. And Marzipan continuing to say "It's in the foreground! It's in the foreground!" through the town meeting scene.

Strong Bad has such a lovely color-coordinated tea set. :P

Here's what I don't get: If the chicken wings didn't cause the problem, how did an anti-chicken wing help? (?)

Nothing special. The premise was strong, but it failed to deliver. So much more could have happened with a giant Bubs. This one needed to stay in the storyboarding phase much longer... I'll bet it was rushed because Matt and Mike were watching the Super Bowl.

Jelly eater has a good point as well.

This is quite possibly my favorite e-mail since virus. King Bubsgonzola... Supreme!

The character that displays when he's returning to the ocean is 端, which means "end."
The end screen reads: 譲歩の人, which translates literally as "concession's man" or "person of concession," but the meaning is closer to "compromise" or "conciliation" than "selling from a small shop." Kinda reminds me of the "Stark Dålig" mistranslation.

I was laughing out loud at "King Bubsgonzolla Supreme". And the DNA evidence, and the apostropholic thing. And Marzipan trying to get Strong Bad to recycle because he said he would... That was hilarious.

Strong Bad sounded like Gunhaver when he said, "Wheeeee!" I realise that it's most likely because neither of them seem likely to say that, and they're voiced by the same person. It's still funny.

This email was one of the most bizarre, but good. I like to call back joke to Strong Badathlon. Anyway, 8.3/10 or so.

In my humble opinion, this is one of the funniest sbemails ever. I practactly laughed the whole way through it, and for a good while after it. Very satisfying indeed: it had all the main characters, and all the speaking characters had good lines.

I enjoyed it, but I have one thing no one else ever thought of saying before: I wish SB would give it a rest with answering emails that spell his name as one word and answer the ones that spell it properly.
So...how long do you have to wait for Strong Bad to say "We will be kind. We will rewind." ?

Usually people back up severely negative comments so as not to sound like jerks. ;)

Well, that was very hilarious. I really like the whole story-ish Strong Bad Emails (like "road trip") to the random scene and narration SBEmails. They're always a fun treat.

:bubs: KING BUBSGONZOLA WILL KILL YOU ALL!!!! :bubs:

It was a great email.

I especially liked the town meeting where everyone just babbles on and on simultaneously.

I was expecting when Strong Sad Backmasked the roars, I would hear "Paul is a dead man. Miss him, miss him."

I loved this email.

Strong Bad went pretty far down the toilet, actually.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I used the flash seeker to rewind and see that again.

I like the fact that it makes up for the small amount of easter eggs.

Well, that was random. But in a good way. Free Country USA comes under attack by King Bubsgonzola Supreme, and the only way to fight him off is with organic cereal! Epic. :D

The little touches I enjoyed were Strong Bad's efforts to support proper spelling and grammar on the Internet, and Homestar's ants fixation: "We must protect the queen! I have six legs!"

I agree with you, JaxShores. The premise could have yielded something much better. I didn't think this email was very funny at all except for the town meeting thing and several other things. They could have pumped up the Godzilla feature, even. The idea was sort of vague. Maybe they could have had Godzilla/hurricane coverage or something. The email (the question asked to Strong Bad) certainly had a lot of potential. Strong Bad could have made all sorts of stuff up, it was not only simple, it didn't milk the Godzilla genre completely.

In fact, I actually think Strong Bad could have gone with the hurricanes and natural weather problems or maybe have added them onto Bubs. It's not as much of a problem of the giant Bubs being not funny in the Godzilla case, it's that the Godzilla stereotype could have been made a whole lot funnier, fake movie reels, etc.

A little too random for my taste, to be honest, especially toward the end. Still, the last few have been really good, since the Cliffhanger.

And the easter eggs at the end were pretty shweet.

:marzi: Bubs' foot isn't giant, it's in the foreground.
