Well, so far I've only gotten to look at it once, but it was funny. It's up on the main menu and the email menu now.

Yay! First replier!
I still think we should make a 5-option poll on how much we liked the email.

I don't have a super great impression on it when I look back, like I don't remember it as fweakin' hilarious. But I got a lot more laughs alone than usual (usually laugh a lot more when with someone else). Lots of punchlines, like Edgar Jr., shaking up electrons, the paint marker similar to kids' book, Teh C burning up the pants. Easter eggs were great.
Anyone notice Homestar go inside the computer?

(I don't rate out of 10 since everybody's average rating is a 7 opposed to a 5...)

It was all right. It was plenty funny, but it was also pretty short... shorter than Homestar's daisy dukes. :P

The Daisy Dukes were HI-LARIOUS, I think Clanky may be a Reference to Ratchet & Clank.

LOL. I thought the whole part where Strong Bad ignores most of the email and gets to the point was funny.

But Homestar going crazy was hillarious. He flipped his lid. This was kind of an odd email.

I liked it.
I don't rate 1/10 either.
But uhh, if i did.
8

Yeah it was funny, but I think it was a little too short. Otherwise a solid email. Homestar freaked out somewhat.

It's always fun to see TBC poking fun at their characters. Like with the Marzipan broom thing and with Homestar having "blue soles glued to his feet."

I thought after best thing, I had doubts about Strong Bad emails. But this one is a nice recovery email! This email cracked me up, especially with Edgar Jr., Homestar going nuts, Strong Bad's "technology", The Cheat burning Homestar's "pants" (causing a little green explosion), and Marzipan's attempt to cheer up Homestar, only to get the reply, "You're not a broom?!" Hilarious!

Yeah, I liked it. Too short, though! But I'm not going to complain, because it was funny.

I LOVED Strong Bad's expression when Homestar is wearing his Daisy Dukes. Almost as classic as his "for kids" expression. No, you know what? It was as classic.

Homestar went nuts. Hahah. The broom-thing was also funny. But not all of us think she looks like a broom; once when I introduced Homestar to someone, they said she looked like a hot dog-thing wearing a dress. It was hilarious.

But anydangway, back on topic: Yay for a new email! Thanks, TBC, for creating this wonderful site that we all know and love!

This was really hilarious. "You're not a broom?" made me laugh out loud. 10/10

Well, I also think it was too short, and wonder why it's taken like, three weeks or something to get that new sbemail >> But it WAS freakin hilarious XD Homestar jumping all around the room o.O Seriously weirded me out....but in a good way.

I noticed that too o.o But it was more of the "-_-" face, popularly used by the anime fan crowd such as myself in an attempt to have anime-like expressions :mrgreen:
And if any one plans to put that in fun facts, don't, because it shouldn't go there >_>;;

Anyone else notice that the pockets hung lower than the rest of the outfit, and that the hot pants appeared to be cut-offs? Either way, hilarious. I watched that Email twice back-to-back to get the full effect of it.

I don't have much to add. I just wanted to post since I just joined up.

One of the funnier emails in awhile, though. Homestar going Crazy Go Nuts and calling Marzipan a broom were priceless, as was the white out pen and the return of the BMW Lighter. I love that thing! I want one.

I don't remember but what email it was, but on one of the early email SB said something to the effect of "folks, don't have to end your email with crapfully yours, or with lots of crap..." and if you noticed, no emails after that no emails were chosen that ended with anything like much crap.

Maybe this email is signaling the end to all long emails.

Great email, I loved it.

That image was one of my favorite parts. I haven't laughed out loud at an email in a while, so this was a good refresher for me. It wasn't the pants, really; just the usual awesome quirks. Such as that fast Homestar Lappy image and the Long Email Killa program.

That was great. Short, but great. That whole Marzipan/Broom egg was hilarious. Definitely a classic.

Homestar going nuts left a bad taste in my mouth, but the e-mail had some funny points as well. In all, this one was par for the course. Duck A L'Orange rating: Solid jumble! Crazy beans double the real gold!

I'm getting kinda sick of the emails strong bad turns into what he wanted to awnser. It seems as if The Chapps are making the email first, and then choosing the lettor that best suits it. 6/10

I loved Stong Bah's new expression. That half-lidded "suffering fools" look. He's needed that look for some time now.
