Strong Bad regularly receives emails with poor grammar and spelling, for which he is notoriously a stickler. He even released an entertaining/informational CD on the subject in an easter egg in "local news" called "Strong Bad's Rhythm 'n' Grammar."

While many emails do contain these sort of errors, this list only contains errors that are either famous in their own right or have affected how Strong Bad read the email.

In contrast to the many criticisms of poor spelling and grammar, Strong Bad applauds Dan from Pennsylvania in autobiography because he makes no misspellings, has a good idea, and makes fun of Strong Sad, calling it a "SOLID e-mail."

Emails With Poor Grammar

  • trevor the vampire - Trevor's email ends unexpectedly.
  • the basics - T.J. ends "how do you do it" with a period rather than a question mark, and has an unnecessary apostrophe in "trick's" (which Strong Bad does not notice).
  • little animal - The email ends in a period instead of a question mark.
  • sugarbob - Typed in ALLCAPS and contains a run-on sentence.
  • sisters - Ali uses "is" instead of "are", and she says "My sister and me" when she should have used "My sister and I". Furthermore, the anonymous author of the second email seems to have a very tenuous grasp of the English language.
  • guitar - The first line is a run-on sentence. Also, "whats" should be "what's."
  • little questions - Viklas from Sweden's English leaves a little to be desired.
  • lures & jigs - David says "fishs" instead of just "fish".
  • techno - Silent J's second sentence ends with a period, not a question mark.
  • your friends - Typed in ALLCAPS
  • morning routine - "Whats" should be "what's."
  • dragon - Kaizer asks to see his "skills of an artist." In addition, he uses internet shorthand in the signature.
  • marzipan - Emily C.'s second sentence is confusingly structured.
  • huttah! - HOLMES types in allcaps, and also asks "WHERE THE HECK IS YOU SHIRT???"
  • fingers - One of the emails asking how Strong Bad types with boxing gloves on is in ALLCAPS.
  • unused emails - Dan Chase uses "showed" instead of "shown."
  • caper - James uses only a period in his first sentence instead of a question mark.
  • sibbie - Sibbie's grammar leaves a lot to be desired, including using "your are" instead of "you're" and using "most awesomest."
  • kids' book - Changes tenses about halfway through.
  • local news - Dan uses the wrong form of "its," causing Strong Bad to sing one of his Rhythm 'n' Grammar songs.
  • Videro Games - Wilbur uses "in" when he doesn't need to, resulting in "the effects of in video games on children."
  • car - Features a run-on sentence, some poor punctuation, and some very random capitalization.
  • crying - DJ leaves in Strong Bad's name twice (Yo yo Strong Bad, hey Strong Bad). Plus, there is no puctuation before "I was wondering..."
  • for kids - Allison uses an improper tense ("I was wondering if you ever thought..." rather than "Have you ever thought..." or "...if you have ever thought...") Also, like Strong Bad said, the comma in the second sentence is unnecessary.
  • other days - Janus seems to have much the same problems with English Viklas had.
  • pizzaz - Ryan N.'s line in the signature has no punctuation and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
  • animal - Spud Jr.'s "What would you like as if" doesn't make much sense, although one viable meaning is that Spud may have merely typed "like as" instead of "look like". The email also ends without punctuation.
  • dreamail - Danny uses "Another words" instead of "In other words."
  • E-mail Birds - bettina's email is one large sentence with no punctuation whatsoever. Furthermore, Naomi seems to have a somewhat tenuous grasp of the English language.

Emails With Poor Spelling

  • homsar - The most famous of all spelling errors, Vinnie C. misspells Homestar as Homsar.
  • i love you - Uses internet shorthand and has the first appearance of a very famous gibberish name.
  • i she be - Along with an extreme lack of punctuation, misspells "should" as "she."
  • stand-up - No capitalization, an unnecessary comma, and misspellings of "you're" ("ur"), "funny" ("funy") and "comedic" ("comidic").
  • cartoon - Besides not capitalizing the beginning of the sentence or using punctuation, the writer uses all internet shorthand. In addition, he appears to misspell his own name, "geroge".
  • invisibility - sin studly17 misspells "invisible" as "invisable," along with not capitalizing and using a few too many question marks.
  • 50 emails - Matt emails "Stong Bad."
  • comic - Brittany mis-types "They" as "Tey" and "appriciate" instead of "appreciate".
  • english paper - Kyle misspells "English" as "englilsh".
  • the show - Tori misspells "tournament" as "tounament," as well as saying "how come..." rather than "why..." and using an unnecessary question mark.
  • privileges - crazyclemens misspells "privileges" as "privaleges," as well as spelling Strong Bad as one word, which some of the other emailers often do.
  • the process - Along with accidentally omitting the word "take" from a sentence, Em misspells "process" as "prosess."
  • couch patch - "your pal" misspells "from" as "form" and "behind" as "behiend."
  • different town - Besides forgetting to add "was" in "I just wondering," Steven misspells "Sincerely" as "Sincerley."
  • lunch special - "Someone" misspells "lunch" as "luncch" and "Sincerely" as "Sincerly."
  • haircut - Harry misspells "cool" as "coull" (probably purposely). His third sentence is a run-on.

  • time capsule - Besides barely capitalizing, Sam mistypes "you're" as "you'rre".
  • montage - Steve misspells "create" as "creat."
