Obligatory Wikilink added by Tom: the facts

What do you think of "Facts"?

I thought it was cool.

BTW, don't forget to click on Homestar's star in the end

That was a big bucket of nothing. Ah, they can't all be winners.

This one is definitely fully of great moments. Doug the Dino + "I CAN BE THE QUIETEST MOUSE! I LIVE IN THE QUIETEST HOUSE!" + Bupkis! = Solid Email.

The whole Doug the Dino thing was great. Especially the easter egg where we get to read the script for Doug the Dino (click on "the script" when Strong Bad's saying it's riddled with plot holes). And of course the quietest mouse, and the Homestar Easter Egg and such. Definitely one of the better emails as of late.

Like the lost two e-mails, they were meager with some good parts. Doug the Dino made me smile, as did Homestar suddenly appearing, sitting on the desk.

"E-COMMERRCE!! E-BUISNEESSS!!"

For the first time to my knowledge, we now know that Strong Bad lives with his parents. This explains why he doesn't have a car, did the e-mail with the class project, etc. So if Strong Bad is a minor, how does he know so much about the "Xtra Cold One?" Hmmm...

There's still really no evidence of this. The "baby Strong Sad" bit was, in my interpretation, a hypothetical scenario. And there's still no reason to believe that a "Cold One" has any alcohol in it.

Can you imagine Strong Sad as a baby? A fat, constantly crying baby?

Come to think of it...I think I know that baby!

Awwww, I think baby Strong Sad would/was cute!!!!

Yeah, I don't think they live with their parents. But apparently Strong Mad still thinks they do, and that Strong Sad's still a baby. Maybe that's where all his problems come from...

I think Strongbad was just taking advantage of Strongmad's little intelligence. IE, Strongmad is so gullible, he believes anything people say, even if he's already seen or heard otherwise.

This email wasn't really that funny in terms of laugh-out-loud comedy, but it had more than its fair share of "tee-hee" moments. The 88x88 inch box surrounding Strong Mad and the subsequent transition into Cubeland was quite funny, if only for the logo and background music. ;) Claymation was a big surprise, but it turned out very nicely.

I guess he was "behind the black" again. :mrgreen:

No, he's always doing that. But, yeah, the clay video was pretty funny. Strange that Strongmad could make something like that, with his small intelligence.

That was pretty good, I'd say. I like when the clay guy got eaten up.

I'm not sure an Xtra Cold One is alcoholic. When it is poured in the Theme Song Music Video, it look like soda or lemonade. However, Coach Z was drunk when he called Marzipan in "the wee hours," which could hypothectically mean he drank a cold one, but there is no credible evidence to support that.

Does anyone find H*R's comments ironic? I mean, tehcnically, it IS his site. But here he is begging SB to give him a try, which shows that SB's totally taken over!!!

That's the point. If you didn't find it ironic, then you completely missed the joke.

Is it just me, or did the claymation seem like a reference to http://www.knoxskorner.com 's klaymations? (especially newspaper monster?) either way, really liked it. really...new. Like me!

Not to be much of a bring down, but I didn't find this e-mail that funny. Then again, I have a more random sense of humor, thus my fondness for Homsar. Though, tBC did an amazingly good job with the claymation. That stuff is hard to make!

It was pretty 'kay (in other words, it was pretty solid/decent). I liked the claymation, just because it was something new (but it seems like TBC are starting to show the blood stuff a lil bit more these days). I also think it's pretty cool how TBC are turning the sorta-ok, not-as-funny Strong Mad into something pretty hilarious.

It was one of the better newer ones around, but not one of the best ones. Still liked it, though.
