STRONG BAD: {rapping} E-mail theme song! 1-2-3! A da-da-checka e-mail wit' me, SB, y'all! {loads the email}

{Strong Bad says "groan" in place of "crap," and pronounces "Texas" like "Tay-hoss".}

'STRONG BAD: {typing} So, you're bored out of your mind, eh? Well, you've come to the right place. Let's see what I...can do...about...that. {draws "that" out}

{Strong Bad walks out to the left, the screen zooms out on the Lappy and zooms in on Bubs' face, and then shows Bubs looking at the side of his concession stand while Strong Bad joins him}

STRONG BAD: Bubs! What going on... over here?

BUBS: Oh! Strong Bad! You startled me! I was just counting the bricks on this side of the building! I'm up to two hundred and forty eight!

STRONG BAD: Two hundred and forty eight! That's just a little less than two fifty!

BUBS: Yep! I remember learning that in school!

STRONG BAD: Well, take care... Bubs. I'm gonna take real, real tiny steps on over to the Stick. {starts walking left}

BUBS: Be's careful!

{Screen zooms out on Bubs; Strong Bad sees Homestar Runner standing by the Stick, mouth open}

STRONG BAD: What are you... um... doing?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I'm practicing... closing... my eyes. I'm not... very... good at it.


HOMESTAR RUNNER: More like... I see.

{Homestar closes his eyes slowly, eventually closing them completely}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh! There we go! Now I see what all the fuss is about! {opens eyes} Oops, I lost it. {Bubs enters}

BUBS: Two hundred and ninety six!

ALL: Wow!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: That's just a little less... than three hundred!

ALL: I remember learning that in school!

STRONG SAD: {under the influence of caffeine} Wah-wah-wait! You guys! You guys! I struck gold on the alien spaceship - I think it gave me super powers, there are wood davers everywhere!

STRONG BAD: {typing} So, Jackson, as you can plainly, see, things move a mile a minute 'round her'. Except for that Strong Sad. That guy's a real bore. And quite a fan of Danish physicist Niels Bohr. The most aptly named of all Danish physicists. So, I hope I bored you back into your mind. And I don't mean 'bored into your mind' like {awesome drilling some brains sound}. That's gross. But if you're still bored, sit back, relax, and prepare to experience the fury of... me naming all the three letter words I can think of. {Strong Bad makes an imitation of a walkie-talkie click, then clears his throat and brings up new screen} Cat. The. Lob. Irk. Try. Wet. Cod. For. Her. Ebb. Goo. Elk. Ilk. {The Paper comes down.} Dog. Fat. Pat. Spy. Get. Sat. Sit. {screen dims} Wow. Man. {screen comes back up with many more words on it} Huh. Not. Sty. Eye. Pie. Tug. Gut. Gun. Sap. Asp. Pus. Job -

COACH Z: {offscreen} I gotta stop you there, Strong Bad. I'm pretty sure "jorb" is a four letters word.
