Watch it
Obligatory wiki link

Hah, this is hilarious... I was seriously laughing out loud throughout this one...

The Marshie ads, the Teal Screen of Near Death... classic.

2956/3014.2

[edit]
Hah, I just saw the "text files" Easter egg... 8.3-style abbreviated filenames, without the whole 8.3 length thing... ah, it takes me back. That's gotta jack it up to at least 2986/3014.2

Heh! Good e-mail! Some weird, non-clickable Easter Eggish-like things in there though. Not sure what that was all about.

It was already made. Calm down.

Woah. I can't wait for the other Wiki and/or forum users wake up and see this two-part e-mail. No wonder it took so long. It's frame count is near 3000, and the other e-mail might be 3,000 as well.

Anyway, this solves the whodunnit. It was Strong Bad's old computers, who just want one last emails each.

I enjoyed the first email, and how it got deleted so hard, that the entire computer exploded, possibly so that the Tandy would never do this again.

I also liked the Teal screen of Near-death, and Homestar still pouring the Mountain Dew onto the floor.

We'll have to wait for the second part, though.

Marshie trying to get big bucks with this Lappynapping was funny as well, with Strong Bad watching while eating his antidepressants--I mean potato chips. :p


In short, after explaining all the plot points, 10/10

A-HA! The true culprit of the Lappy-napping revealed at last!Or should I say, culprits! Yes, those of you who said it was the Compy were at least half-right. It was actually the revengeance-crazed duo of Tandy and Compy, blackmailing Strong Bad into letting each of them check one last e-mail!

Wow, it's almost like H*R has plot development now. :mrgreen:

That was weird. Really weird. Never would have guessed. It'll be interesting to see tomorrow how StrongBad checks the email on the compy when it's got a big hole through it. And we still don't know if this is the end of the lappy or not!

Is it just me, or is the Compy noticeably evil?

..oh wow.

Man. Whoever predicted that, give yourself a pat on the back or something.

Marshie definitely kept up to his creepiness, though. Did anyone else suspect he wanted to tack something 'else' onto the end of that 'mother'? o_.

But the big question in tiny font is:
how the hell do you check an email on the compy NOW?

+a billion for the paper. Sup, Light and Fluffy.

It's gonna be amusing to see how Strong Bad is going to check an e-mail on a shotgunned Compy.I bet he'll just put a peice of paper over it and write somethin' real quick.

Anyway, that was awesome!That thing when Marshie said,"Just walk away, mother!!!" was hilarious and disturbing at the same time.And hooray for the never ending soda.But I thought the compy was good and understood that Strong Bad had to get a new computer because the Compy was...well, dead.I can't wait 'til tommorrow.

That was awesome. It was pretty dag odd, but I still love it. I'm really interested in seeing how he will check his email on the Compy. It was also nice to see Homestar's Mountain Dew again.

Didn't expect Compy to be in on it, too. Figured it'd just be Tandy by itself.


Man, Marshie just keeps getting creepier and creepier. o_O I seriously jibblie'd when he suddenly grew a big fat human-ish body.

LOVED the neverending soda part. XD Especially Homestar's adorable little smirk while he was pouring the Mountain Dew (totally gonna avatar that) and the green pixelly explosion. Though does anyone else find it kind of weird to see Strong Bad intentionally killing off his old computers like that. o_O I guess he has a good reason too though, lol.

I'd also like to say I enjoyed Marshie's amusingly-creepy parody of "whodunit?" product contests, like the recent "Cheetos Recipie" ad campaign Frito-Lay did.

Do we have a continuity here, or something?

Well, remember, SB hated the ol' Tandy. And it and that Bad Graphics Ghost have given him trouble before, so he figured he might as well, I guess?

Awesome. For some bizarre reason, I found SB's "slinking off" to be HILARIOUS. But I love little weird things like that Can't wait for tomoooorrow!~

"Oh Child!"

Fantasmic...
Gotta love Sumo-marshie. That and the BEST DELTEATED EVAR.

It's been said before, but I have to wonder how SB will manage the Compy's "Slightly Shotgunned" hole.

I don't know, but I think SB might give the Compy a better eternal send-off than the Tandy. Remember, he loved his computer brother! ;D

That's probably why they waited until tomorrow to do to Compy (that, plus it will be harder to check an email on the Compy). Strong Bad was sad when his Tandy initially exploded, but as it caused him problems, he had no problem watching it go. With Compy, that was taken away from him all in one moment, so it left while Strong Bad really liked it.

Plus, this is a good one. Finally having another DELETED! email was nice. Now, Strong Bad better delete an email with the Lappy before that ends up in computer heaven...or hell...or buried under 10 feet of garbage at the dump, depending on what you believe.

Heh. I love the part with that Marshie contest. Reminds me of all the stupid mystery contests on cereal boxes. And, like I thought, they made the thief the least suspected person-or people. Or computers. Whatever. I was wondering when the Compy would try to get revenge.
