The car

Would it be too much of a stretch to infer that the Gremlin (mentioned in this toon to be Bubs's car) is the car that The Cheat won from Bubs in the Easter egg in pop-up? It's kinda speculatory, but it's possible it's a reference, it all fits together... --phlip TC 06:50, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Not main page material, but it's an interesting thought. --Jay v.2020 (Talk) 06:55, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
(Edit Conflict) No, it's not too much of a stretch. The Cheat wins the car for Strong Bad ("Now get back in there and win me a car!"), and both SB and TC treat the car as SB's in this email. It was also only 10 emails away. Loafing 06:56, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
What about Strong Bad already being seen in the car in dangeresque 3? --DorianGray
Dangeresque 3 was years before The Cheat won the car. They could have just borrowed it from Bubs back then (which is what they could have done now as well, of course). Loafing 07:44, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
Then how did he get out of it when he had finished that scene if the doors and windows are broken? 07:52 PM, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
The cameraman, or The Cheat, or someone could have opened it for him, perhaps? --phlip TC 08:00, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
It's entirely possible that the dorrs and windows weren't busted back then.
If it is, what happened to the key that Bubs gave The Cheat when he won the car, I wonder?--H-ko 18:26, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Honk 'em if ya got 'em or smoke 'em if ya got 'em?

I remember a cigarette company whose motto was "Smoke 'em if ya got 'em". Possibly a real-world reference? Steve Talk Contributions 11:19, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

It's also a song by Parkway Drive, apparently. We'll see if it gets stuff'd. — Lapper (talk) 12:19, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
More likely just a cross between the saying "Flaunt 'em (it) if you got 'em (it)" and the various "Honk if..." bumper stickers. Octan 20:37, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Forwards Compatible

Yet another of Strong Bad's lack of knowledge of modern technology. Loved that part, and the part about the "other world, with another The Cheat and Strong Bad...stuck in a Gremlin". Best part of the whole toon. Retromaniac 17:04, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

New Fun fact

I noticed that the email isn't on the email menu yet. Someone put that one in, please.

How long's it been?

I think this is the first time in a while that Strong Bad has ended his e-mail with an "Until next time" comment. Is anyone not-lazy enough to check out when the last time was that he did that? --ComputerBox 22:27, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

It's been about 4 years. See also Until Next Time.... The first thing I thought of when I heard that was the wiki page. I doubt that's why he said it though. —Zelinda 22:46, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
