{Cut to Strong Bad talking on the phone}

STRONG BAD: No, they're more like elephant feet. Yeah. So what do you think, like, 50 bucks? Sounds good. I'll leave the key under the atmay.

{Back to Compy 386. Homestar has typed in many, many words, but none of them do anything.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What is that stupid word? {He types in "da cheated" and hits enter. The computer plays a tune and the blue "Flagrant System Error" screen comes up} Uh oh. This does not look good for Homestar Runner.

{Cut back to Strong Bad on the phone}

STRONG BAD: Okay. Bye! {He hangs up and walks off. Cut back to the computer}

Okay. Back to the 50 emails. {He sits down. There's a piece of paper over the monitor with a Windows error window titled "This is real." It says "System report: Everything is fine. Nothing is ruined." Strong Bad reads the message} Everything is fine. Nothing is ruined. Oh, that's good to hear. Let's just, wait a minute... {he tears off the paper and sees the blue screen} Wha...

{The screen, and Strong Bad's voice, slowly fade out. A paper plate with a Swiss Cake Roll with a "50" candle on it fades in. The paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad - strongbad@homestarrunner.com", click on the text to email him.}

Easter Eggs

  • When Strong Bad types the word, "book" you can click on it and bring up a picture of Strong Bad's idea of this book idea.
  • At the end, click on the "50th email Swiss Cake Roll" to see a funny "Olde Thyme" Strong Bad cartoon.

Fun Facts

  • Strong Bad starts by saying "ready, go!" this is a referance to email 20, when he said that to start his spring cleaning.
  • When he responds to Email #3 ("What is your favorite leg?"), Strong Bad mentions tape-leg. This is a reference to tape-leg, one of his past emails.
  • The front floppy in the floppy case is entitled "tongue of the fatman." Whatever that means. (It's a classic... well, at least old... game for the PC. Take a look at this: http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?name=Tongue+of+The+Fatman for more info.)
  • As many of Homestar's attempts at DELETED as could get:
    • Baleeted
    • Delteated
    • freaky D'td
    • chadeated
    • deedleated
    • meathead?
    • dltd
    • duh lee ted
    • teeteeted
    • bubs
    • diddley dee
    • repeated

  • Some of the commands Homestar tries are references. Some are more obvious than others:
    • 'meathead?' - This is probably refering to a catch phrase from the sitcom 'All in the Family' in which 'meathead' was a common insult.
    • 'stratego' - Stratego is a board game.
    • 'open sesame' - Famous words from the tale 'Ali Baba and the Forty Theives'.
    • 'de la soul' - De La Soul is actually a rap group.
    • '3-D Movie' could be a reference to the very fun, but overlooked PC game, Microsoft 3-D Movie Maker.
  • When you adjust the contrast while Homestar is at the computer, his reflection isn't affected.
  • In case you didn't notice, the blue screen says:

FLAGRANT SYSTEM ERROR The system is down. I dunno know what you did, moron, but you sure screwed everything up, moron.

  • Homestar says Del Taco right before the camera cuts to Strong Bad on the phone. Del Taco is a fast food Mexican restaurant chain.
  • Strong Bad is talking to a potential customer about 'elephant legs'. Apparently he plans to sell Strong Sad's legs on the black market, or something. Or have him assasinated; See fingers.
  • When old-timey Strong Bad responds to the guy in the easter egg, he calls him a "carpet bagger." A carpet bagger is actually a post civil war term for a northerner moving to the south after the war to get rich or gain power.
