Sooooooooo Funnnnnnnnnnny! I have to give this a 5/5.

Especially nice Tiny Toon Adventure Refrence. I used to watch that show when I was little. Also I love the Easter Egg at the end, and how it makes fun of how TV shows are playing the credits for you to hear, and then cut it off for another show's ad.

EDIT: Anyone try that GCNU website yet? Anyone remember the web URL?

Edit X 2: nope it didn't work

Watching right now...Sounds good so far...

EDIT: Awesome. We learn that Homestar has teeth, we see a reference to Seinfeld, and possibly one to Jake-A-Roonie's Sim's 2 house...

All in all, awesome.

Homestar, your teeth are going to give me nightmares.

I love this one! The little lens glare gave me a bit of a start, but it was funny anyway. And I must say, I want that shot of Strong Bad with the PPG style background as my screen saver.

I can now prescribe marriage, too. Thanks CGNU!

*...ding!*

Just watched it.

When the theme song said "...And the cheat, his pet!", I though they said "...And the cheat is dead!"

Which was weird. Cause I have it on good authority that the cheat is not dead.

Not the funniest email ever, but I love the pop-culture spoofs. And how they combined all those inside references into one episode. Plus, zing to all those web cartoons that act like they absolutely have to put the same boring theme song and credits roll in every episode. (I'm lookin' at you, Bonus Stage.)

The only thing they left out is the many bizarrely-named companies whose logos appear at the end of shows. (Bad Hat Harry, Worldwide Pants, et al)

Quote:
When the theme song said "...And the cheat, his pet!", I though they said "...And the cheat is dead!"

So did I. I'll bet that's why the words appeared on the screen when they repeated it.

/\ AVATAR'D!

Yay, we had references to Cheat Commandos, and the return of Senor Cardage...yay! I see this week they were on "special effect and "inside joke overload mode" today...

But, CGNU finally offering online degrees and such and such? Yay...and the parody of when they always squish the credits of certain shows on network TV to put in more ads...PRICELESS!

This, is one of the better emails (and it actually made me laugh for once)

+2 for 2 Weird Theme Songs
+2 for Senor Cardage's return of sorts
+2 for Cheat Commandos reference
+3 for all the inside jokes!
+1 for Homestar's Teeth! Must...Make...AVATAR!!!

10/10

Do you make butt at your current job? Do you want to make twice butt? A shady online degree is just four clicks away at CGNU online e-niversity!

9/10

Do you want to cut your own arm off?

Homestar has TEETH?

TINY TOON CHEAT-VENTURES?

I don't know if I'll be able to not show this to all of my friends at least 50 times each.

Well once again, Matt Chapman has gone through his "Be-Mel-Blanc-For-A-Day" routine by providing more additional voices (e.g. commercial voices). I knew there'd be an email involving a theme song would come, and I never thought I'd see more unusual things, like Homestar's exposed teeth! I suppose #155 gets a 4+1 out of 5.

Homestar's teeth= JIBBLIE

This was a good email, but It was all strong bad, TBC singing and "commewwwcial guy." No other characters did anything substantial...'cept Senor Cardgage, but he wasn't quite himself.

However, I HEART'D the slam on theme songs.

6/10

Definitely. Anyone ever seen El Emigrante? (http://www.transience.com.au/el/el01a.html) it's a really stupid cartoon with more beginning credits than show. And the pisodes are divided into parts, so less! So you have to watch the credits like twice to finish the episode.

Anyway, squished end credits for the win.
Loved the Tiny Toons reference.

Definitely a good email.

Homestar's teeth are freaking me out. O_o;

Buuut I thought this was pretty amusing, most of the little parodies were pretty much dead-on. Especially how the credits get squeezed by commercials, and the pop-ballad type theme song. And I loved the Tiny Toons reference. XD

I like how there were inside references ALL OVER THE PLACE in this one. Including a ton I didn't even catch until I read them on the wiki page.

I want the PPG-background Strong Bad as my desktop too... XD;

Bah... I didn't think it was that great... "Shaheeeeeen!" was funny, but the theme songs annoyed me too much for me to enjoy it...

That was really good. The comercials were pretty funny, I always like to see Cardgage. "Do you wanna cut your own arm off?" was great. I'd give it an 8/10, maybe 8.5

6/10...just above average sbmail.

I did not know it was possible to fit that much awesomeness within a Sbemail. I loved the Senor Cardgage scene. E-Cutting ones. Hilarious.

That. Was hilarious. "Join MAndy, Brandy, Randy, and Skurg, as they learn to give a care"

That was HILARIOUS. But I didn't like Homestar with teeth... It gets a 9/10
