This was pretty good; I laughed throughout the entire short. 4/5.

5/5. That was great.

I loved the "shaped like there's a bite taken out of it" part.

I liked it. Lots of short and sweet jokes. But still, it wasn't stand-out awesome like toons like "love poems" and the like. I gave it a 4/5.

Their new working-on-SBCG4AP pace for new toons is kind of slow and inconsistent, which sucks, but I have to say it's refreshing to say that during that time they are releasing more regular toons. Strong Bad is great, but I'm glad the other characters are getting more time in the spotlight. I guess Bubs is getting a little more exposure than he needs (compared to the other non-Homestar/Strong Bad characters), but it's not bad.

It's like the Summer Short Shorts, which I really enjoy. So, 5/5.

That was great.

"Step right up and take home a tome"
"Cool me cool me cool me down
"Shaped like there's a bite taken out of it"
'nother napkin argument
Summer talk
melting KOT

Not necessarily worth such a wait, but I understand it with the game in the works.

Do you think the BC's are getting tired tired of Strong Bad from working on the game? Is that why they're focusing on minor characters? Honestly, I think this one is a lot like Playdate. A minor character and (briefly) most of the other characters involved in various aspects of a particular childhood activity, with variations (e.g. concrete blocks, baloney vs. ice cream, novels vs. lemonade). Wait a minute, I thought that "melonade" was like their version of our "lemonade." Why would SS's stand have "lemonade" crossed out instead of "melonade?" Maybe that's one of those running gags like Decemberween vs. Christmas, where they make references to both.

I don't know, Strong Sad is kind of on a different plane of reality than the others. By that I mean one more real.

Speaking of melonade, has anyone ever actually tried it?

Uh-oh. What happened to my reply?
Did.... Did I accidentally post it somewhere else? :eek:
Or is it just not showing up for some reason?

EDIT: found it.

Oh. My. God.

What's with all the 3/5 and 4/5 votes?! This is one of the best toons ever! I couldn't stop laughing! "Got any five-of-everythings?" "I've got six of those!" Maybe I'm just easily entertained.

I give this one 5 one-of-everythings out of 5.

Homestar's line about the Baloneyman "having a really sketchy past" might be a reference to the Mr. Tastee episode of Pete and Pete but I'm not sure.



:bubs: YEEEEEAH, SHAPED LIKE THERE'S A BITE TAKEN OUT OF IT.

I laughed at Strong Bad's angel and devil, the King of Town melting, and Strong Sad twitching at the end.

Did anyone else get kinda creeped out by Coach Z's line about the napkin, or do I just have a twisted imagination?

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm-kay.

I didn't really get most of the jokes they made. There seems to be a lot of that lately.
And I really just want a new sb_email.

2/5

Does anyone else think that "angel SB" doesn't get listened to allot? I really liked this one, "Baaaa-Loooo-naaaY" the "shaped like a bite taken out of it" and "summer talk" were all great... SS portion wasn't that great...and still no Pom Pom? that dude is totally MIA again! He's like my second favorite second stringer! But a great short, and TBC continue to semi-regularly update, so A/A+

PS. Homestar's bike from "Bike thief" returns, as does Bubs' summer job in the Baloney Van from "Weclome Back" (baloney van also appeared as the Thnikkavan in "Happy Dethemberween"

I don't think they're focusing on them any more than usual. I doubt they could really get tired of Strong Bad... he's too much fun.

They're probably just both evil and the angel outfit is only for show.

Nice minitoon. The King of Town's part was my favorite. But the best sammich was the inside out one. :D It should have gotten more screen time. That's 4/5 for childhood summer goodness.

This one is definitely getting a 5/5 from me, since I totally wasn't expecting Bub's baloney truck to come back. Oh, and Strong Bad with mustard on his forehead? Best Thing Ever.

I really liked it. I wish I coulda revoted. If so I would have gone for 5 instead of 4. Definitely awesome. The series sandwich cracked me up.

Hmm... three shorts in a row, and not a single sbemail this month. But still, very good toon.

FUNNIEST PART:

:hr: "I can't decide between the one with the gum-ball in the center, or the one shaped like there's a bite taken out of it.
:bubs: "Yeah...shaped like there's a bite taken out of it."
:hr: "Yeah! Shaped like there's a bite taken out of it."
:bubs: "Yeeeaah. Shape-d like there's a bite taken out of it."
:hr: "Yeah! shaped like there's a bite taken out of it!"
:bubs: "Yea--"

Yeah, now all we need is a Coach Z :coachz:-centric toon and I'll be set for the summer.

I liked this one. Those Strong Bad devil/angels need to appear more often.
4/5
