I thought it was pretty funny. I'll give it a 4/5.
Favorite line =

"SB: You're not The Cheat!

HS: No, not anymore."
:mrgreen:
What do you guys think?

Pretty good. Some bits made me snicker, it wasn't as good as webcomics. :-S

Favorite part:

:sb: "At least Strong Mad will appreciate it."
:sm: "NO I WOOON'T!"
(the submersible airplane toy sinks to the bottom of the bowl)
:sb: ... "Peanut brittle could float better than that thing."

What else can I say but that this email’s solid—much better than “Web Comics.”

Parlod, you and I have the same favorite line.

Yeah, a pretty good email. I also liked Strong Bad's mouth goin' all wavy when he said "incontinental bleagh-fast," and pretty much everything about the airplane that swims and loves St. Louis. However, I was not down with the oblique references to marital infidelity. I mean, Strong Bad and Homestar aren't even married; the remark about the wedding bands was totally unnecessary.

I only laughed at incontinental, and the only reason i laughed is because I made the same joke once before.

Haha. This was actually pretty funny, seeing as we now now homestar wears shoes, and that he and strong mad actually got along. I gave it a solid 4.5, rounded that's a 5.

Loved the part where the king of town was going to write a number but instead there was a piece of lasanga on the paper..

Overall, this is pretty good :hr: :hr: :hr: :hr: / :hr: :hr: :hr: :hr: :hr:

Nope, they can't do anything serious.

Not the greatest sbmail, but good all the same. I want that swimming plane that loves St Louis...

This email was okay.

I liked:
:sb: "Homestar, you're not The Cheat!"
:hr: "No, not anymore."

Hey, I thought that was pretty funny. And unusual... Strong Bad and Homestar somehow made a good team! And is it me, or was Homestar on the ball with those cans of Pork b/w Beans? Weirdness...

Anyway, my favorite parts include the guys "sealing the deal" with the King of Town ("You wrote a piece of lasagna on this piece of paper."), and the ad for Expense Account Ones ("Yeah, that's right, he just made a 'you go girl' joke!")

This was a pretty good sbmail. My favorite parts were Strong Bad making fun of ROXY~'s name and The Cheat's job title.

4/5

This is kind of funny, because my dad went on a buisness trip today. Hmm.

Anyways, not a bad cartoon.

1/5. No part of this was in any way entertaining to me.

Meh, It was ok. Roxy (scratch noises), the "finalizing of the deal", the airplane that swims and loves St. Louis, and the Expen$e Account One's ad.
I agree about the marital infidelity thing though. One since they're not married, and two since that's just... wrong, somehow.

I'll give it a 2/5.

Lol, I love that plane part.

As soon as I read the email itself and realized Strong Bad was actually being asked to "do an email about" something, I didn't have very high expectations. In a way, this email is kind of like tape-leg: the setup is interesting, but there's really nowhere you can go with it. I have to wonder how many times the phrase "come on, we have to make this work somehow" came up in production.

Weak, guys. Better luck next weak, guys.

For some reason I found Strong Sad being too heavy for the box hilarious.

Also, "What the sense-make?"

I really don't understand all the 1/5 reviews, but I thought this was a decent email. Reminded me of the older ones. I wouldn't want every email to be like this, but it was good and funny. 5/5.

Blah. Only 1 SBmail style funny part (Water boat.) Otherwise, mostly fill-the-email-up-jokes.

2.

It wasn't a favorite but I honestly thought it was really funny.

OK Homestar...you've earned it...

My dogs are KILLING me!

I dunno...I found that really funny for some reason >.>

Ok, seriously you guys, since when did H*R do anything that was "necessary"? Half of their jokes don't make sense on purpose.

I think the reason why there are so many low reviews is because this sbemail came right after the extremely hilarious webcomic one, which was a difficult sbemail to follow up.

I for one enjoyed it. I liked how it was a bit edgy with the sexist Roxy joke and the wedding bands joke. It warms my heart to know that H*R will never be politically correct. I also like any toon in which Homestar and Strong Bad interact.

4/5 - I would have given it a 5/5 if it was a bit longer.

Amen to that. "Roxy" was near and dear to my heart because I was nearly named that as a child. My mom was really pullin' for that name, but my Dad saved the day at the last minute. Whew.

Non-PC H*R - Check
Roll my eyes - Wins
