I'm taking some of the credit for this one, having sent an email suggesting Strong Bad SENT an email this week.

Well it certainly was clever. Cool things happened. But why do I get the feeling that I've been The Cheated?

But there are some nice new hidden pages. I've found two so far but I can't help thinking that there's more...

***SPOILER ALERT***

Has anyone tried to email you-know-who?

It has a interesting auto-reply that might be worth mentioning on the wiki.

I just tried it. Very nice!

I think I've been a little too hard earlier on. TBC are thinking things through. Maybe there's some more hidden gems.

I didn't find it all that funny... It tried WAY too hard, but thats sorta seemed the purpose of the email...

Until I took a step back and realised that email is probably a stab at the wiki - all the fact alterations (Poopsmith talking, Homestar's flashbacks and all the fill-in information) brought about in this email has got to have the whole database shaken up into an editing fever.

Whats the bet TBC are just sitting there, laughing as they see the changes crop up - all their fans going into an "OH NOZ SBEMAIL OVA!?" frenzy - emailing the "hremail" address, hoping to be the new Abdi.

Its a sick, twisted joke that seems funnier more you step back and examine it.

No appearances by either Sir Strong Bad or Senor Cardgage... :-( Ah, well, I'll get over it.

Am I the only one who is having impossible load times on Homestar. I let it load for an hour and nothing happened. Very sad. I've been wanting to see this since email 180.

No you are not. For me, any swf on homestarrunner.com loads 64.8 kB then hangs. This includes Main pages and anything I type in the address bar. It happens in Safari, Firefox, and wget (I got desperate) and also if I hop on the neighbor's WiFi.

Are you on a Mac too? Because that is what I am on and that would be weird if this was Macs only.

Special email intro song with red carpet and fanfare, sung by the Poopsmith...Homestar Runner turning the entire SBEmail concept on its head...numerous references to all our favorite SBEmails...Homestar's Computer I do believe that was a suitably epic two-double-aught. I don't think it's quite as good as its forerunner "milestone" emails, #100 and #150, but those would be hard to top. Still, taking the "Homestar does his own email-answering program" from "anything" and drawing it out to its (il)logical conclusion is a solid recipe for humor.

I'm celebrating the 200th SBEmail with a top-ten-style retrospective of SBEmails #1-199 over at my blog, "This Week in Webcomics." Sound like fun to you? Come check it out!

:sad: "Be sure to not check out my blog. I haven't updated that thing in years."
*SPITS OUT COFFEE* They remember!!!

We BETTER get hremail after this. Sbemail has officially run on for too long, because quality-wise, even 200 was sort of disappointing.

Great email. If it really is the end of sbemails (which I doubt) it would be a great way to go out.

BTW I'm still having problems loading, I have to reload constantly to get anything.

I swear to god, I have not laughed this hard at a sbemail since...well, since fowever. :D The email itself made me chuckle, but Homestar's lines and the little homage to long pants were just hysterical. And the ending, that was great.

I feel honored to have found Homestar Runner in time to fully appreciate this cultural milestone... (sniff)

EDIT: We need a freaking 6/5+ option in the poll. I will not settle for anything less.

The red carpet song in the beginning was the most epic thing I have ever seen. I love The Cheat's flute solo! :O

I'm disappointed by the recycled Limozeen easter egg though. A new Limozeen clip would have filled my heart with joy.

Hey! I want my Galleons! Mabye I can buy my own racing broom!

But in all seriousness, this was a lovely tribute to the Sbemail era. I nearly wet my pants when I saw the Poopsmith sing, the blog become mentioned, and one of my predictions come true! I seriously hope that hremails become a reality and that Homestar can finally have his site back (though I doubt that will happen); I have nothing against Strong Bad, but he's simply wearing out his humor value.

The very end really gave me a last email vibe, mainly because of the list of sbemails and the fact of no email strong bad sign, but i don't know, be weird if they stopped. Also, isn't this only one of three times when strong bad didn't actually answer an email.

This marks at least the third time everyone was positive that TBC were done with SBEmails, maybe the 5th. The 100th, 150th, when TBC's dad died, some people thought "Rock Opera" marked the end, and now this.

I felt a little dissapointed that most of the other's weren't involved. But it worked well for what it was.
Bring on SBEMAIL250.

*sigh* You who want the show to end are perfect examples of why people don't like fandoms.

I hope they keep going, and I think they will.


I don't think this e-mail was quite as good as other landmark e-mails simply because they put too much emphasis on it being one. I still appreciate the song.

As an e-mail alone, it was pretty good. I always like it when Homestar is around, and when Strong Bad and he are at odds. The throwback to Caper, one of my personal favorites was fun. The hremail easter eggs are really good too.

BTW at the end when they show all the emails it says "email thunder..."

That implies that there are more sbemails to come.

When i saw that email, i thought tons of things:

Is homestar actually smarter than he looks considering he did really plan that part in caper?

Are TBC going to continue with sbemails or start with hsrmails, or both?

will we hear the poopsmith's voice a bit more often ( But by a different actor) ?

Have TBC jumped the shark?

Will strong sad update his lament and make his review show permanent?

Am i being too questionable?
