New Toon!...
Strong Sad decided to go to the beach.
(Very Weird Pictures Within!) :sad:

...and a sunburned Strong Sad is something I almost want to forget. :p
Although, female-version Strong Sad? :eek:

It was a decent summertime update; nothing groundbreaking, but it was kinda fresh when compared to most of the other recent updates (excluding last week's short). I laughed at a few parts of it, but it seemed kinda difficult to maintain a humored attitude throughout the entirety of this one. Maybe it's because I'm tired?

I'd give it an average 3/5.

This poll sucks on a beach. We need five ratings!

And 2/5.

Well heeb my jeebies! That was unpleasant. And the lack of running commentary from the peanut gallery was kind of disappointing.

I thought it was an okay toon, and it seems pretty obvious that they're focusing on the game so I can deal with that.

Aww, it looks like Strong Sad had a pretty good time on his trip for the most part. I don't whether that's supposed to be a good thing or a bad thing, for him.

Too depressing. And the female Strong Sad gives me the jibblies. I'm going to be nice again since TBC are working on the game, but if they postpone it another month, no more niceness from me. X(

Could someone please change this poll so it has five ratings?

It was...okay. I would have like to see :sad: on caffene, tooo. But pink Strong Sad alone bumped this up from a 3/5 to a 4/5. Totally unexpected, and totally awesome!

Aaaa! Sunburned Strong Sad! Jibblies!

Is it just me or is SS's voice getting really, extraordinarily high-pitched these days?

Oh right. The toon. It had some good moments. 3/5.

I apoligize on the poll, it's my first Toon topic.. saw this early enough that no one else had caught it here, not even on the Wiki.
What should I make the fifth option?

Meh, it was OK. My favorite parts had to be:
The reasons the came to the slide show.
Ebracing the hoopla.
Dampening?
The blacksmith clothes.
3rd place!
Styrofoam beach volleyball!
Sucks on the beach.
Burnt to a crisp.
Looking good, Miss July!

So yeah, this catoon was better than Play Date. This gets :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar:/ :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar: :homsar:.

Fifth option added! Though, it reset the poll.

Not horrendously funny, but there was some really clever dialogue in there. I agree with the trying to enjoy the beach at night and tripping over couples thing. =p
4/5 from me.

It was okay. I mean, there have been better and worse. Strong Sad's uh... moonburn surprised me a bit. And the dampening was just funny.
The beach can be pretty evil at times. The tripping over couples thing is very true, and quite disturbing after a while, and I only go to the beach in daylight once a year, so I don't even want to imagine what it gets like at night.

I kinda liked it. The moon-burned Strong Sad made me laugh though.

It was definitely solid. I chuckled at this toon more than I usually do at Homestar. It was cool they finally pulled the idea of SS showing everyone slides off the shelf after all this time. I think they even used some of the same animation. Strong Sad's "skin condition" just creeped me out, though.

4/5
