<cite>Strong Bad, in [[1 step ahead]]</cite>
Sometimes when [[Strong Bad]] answers an [[Strong Bad Emails|email]], he '''disregards the content of the email''', '''only addresses it briefly then rants on something different''', or '''does the complete opposite''', even though in [[lady fan]] he claims, when receiving "stupid emails", to be "obligated by law to do what they say". Often, this is because Strong Bad either feels he is unable or unwilling to answer the immediate question (such as in [[dangeresque 3]] where he could not say when Dangeresque 3 was to be released, as he had no intention of finishing Dangeresque 3 at the time), because he simply misunderstands (or pretends to misunderstand) the question (such as in [[homsar]] where Strong Bad thinks Vinnie C. is suggesting that he kill [[Homsar]] rather than [[Homestar Runner]]), because he finds the question too stupid to answer (such as in [[spring cleaning]]), or because he has a better idea (such as in [[1 step ahead]], where he glues [[Strong Sad]]'s hands to his butt rather than to his head).
