STRONG BAD: {singing} I got an email. I got an awesome email. {stops singing}

STRONG BAD: Geez, I didn't need your freaking life story, man. Augh, {typing} That's an easy one Brandon. Horns. No question. I'd wish for a pair of horns. Here, check it out.

{Strong Bad bends to the desk and starts drawing. He draws a picture of himself with horns and holds the paper up to show it}

STRONG BAD: Look at how great I would look, man. So majestic, yet so wicked awesome. Like I could maybe go on tour with some heavy metal band and like be their mascot you know and come out on stage, and have some type of laser fight with the lead singer and all the fans will go nuts. Oh man, that would be great.

{He puts away the picture of himself with horns.}

STRONG BAD: Okay you guys, so until next week, it's not required that you sign your email, "Crapfully yours," or, "With a bunch of crap," or, "Crap in the times," or, "Crap is so great," "Everything is crap," "My middle name is Crapperson." You know, you could just put, "Sincerely"... or, "Yours truly," is another good one. Come on, guys. I'll still read them.

{The Paper comes down.}

{He picks up the picture of himself with horns again.}

STRONG BAD: You know these horns kinda look like croissants the way I drew them. Maybe my third wish will be for a couple of croissants. Yeah, like, heat it up with some butter melting on the top.

{He puts away the picture and clears his throat.}

STRONG BAD: I got to get The Cheat to get me some of those... Some of those... {with a heavy French accent} croissants.

Fun Facts

Remarks

  • The title of this email is the only one to contain a word with an initial capital letter as part of a lowercase word. (CGNU and butt IQ also contain capital letters, but in those cases they are part of an initialism.)
  • This is the last Strong Bad Email that the .html version can be zoomed in on.
  • The last line appears to be a separate audio file (the Flash file pauses shortly after playing it).

Goofs

  • When Strong Bad draws the picture of himself with horns, the pencil doesn't reflect on the screen.
  • When Strong Bad holds up the drawing of himself with horns, you can still click the contrast buttons through his boxing gloves.
  • The enter key is not heard being hit when Strong Bad clears the screen for the first time.
  • Even though Strong Bad used a pencil to draw himself with horns, the picture seems to be done with dark blue ink, suggesting a ball-point pen.

Inside References

  • This is the first (but far from last) time that Strong Bad objects to getting "crappy" closings in his emails.

Real-World References

Fast Forward

  • Strong Bad's short-lived obsession with croissants continues in action figure with his "Chinese throwing-croissants."
