Strong Bad Email #55

Strong Bad tries to get The Cheat to speak English, without much luck.

Features: Strong Bad, The Cheat, Strong Mad, Strong Sad


STRONG BAD: Duh duh dududududududududuh duhduhduhduhduhduh e-mail.


Dear Strong Bad,

I think the Cheat is the coolest
thing ever, but why can't I
understand him?  Please tell the
Cheat to talk normal.


Cory, North Dakota


Whoa. The entire town of Cory, North Dakota decided to e-mail me. That was nice of them.

{Strong Bad's voice echoes and sounds like it's coming out of a megaphone}

Citizens of Cory! Thank you for your email. Hang on, let me get The Cheat.

{Strong Bad turns around in his chair and calls for The Cheat, his voice normal}

Hey, the Che- Oh. The Cheat.

{Strong Bad sees that The Cheat is standing beside him}

Some town here can't understand you. Say something normal, like-er-um-uhhh... Douglas.

THE CHEAT: [The Cheat talk]

STRONG BAD: Douglas.

THE CHEAT: [some more The Cheat talk]

STRONG BAD: Douglas!

THE CHEAT: [the same exclamation as the first time]

STRONG BAD: {turning back to his computer} Well, I guess you can't expect much from a furry little man who hangs out with my brother all day. Speaking of...

{Strong Bad turns around again, calling for Strong Mad}

Hey, Strong Ma- Whoa!

{He sees that Strong Mad is standing beside him.}

Strong Mad. Say Douglas.


STRONG BAD: Douglas.


STRONG BAD: Douglas!


STRONG BAD: {turning back to his computer again} So, there you have it, people of Cory, North Dakota. Eh- oh. Hang on a second.

{Strong Bad turns away again}

Hey! Strong Sad!

{Strong Sad arrives}

{Strong Bad hits him in the stomach with the keyboard}

STRONG SAD: Douglas!

STRONG BAD: So, there you have it, people of Cory, North Dakota. The Cheat can't say anything normal, like Douglas.

{Something that sounds like "Douglas" is heard off to the left and (Strong Bad turns around}

STRONG BAD: What the- Who said Douglas?

{"Douglas" is heard again, but then it cuts to a window}

STRONG BAD: Oh, wait, it's just the branch of that old sycamore rubbing against the window. It was nothing to worry about after all.

{Strong Bad turns back to his computer again}

STRONG BAD: So, I guess you guys are just gonna have to learn how to speak The Cheat. I know a little myself... You know, like, [speaks some Cheat], and, um, [speaks more Cheat], you know... I don't know what any of that means, but, uh, it really seems to tick The Cheat off when I say it, so, I say it to him all the time. Anyways, give it up for me! ... Guys?

{The paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad -", click on the text to email him.}

Easter Eggs

  • At the end of this email you can click on "you guys" to bring up a goofy Cory ND postcard.
  • Also at the end of this emailyou can also click on the words, "Learn How to Speak The Cheat" to get a sample from the LP.

Fun Facts

  • The Cheat Phrases and what they mean:
    • "Menameh, meNAHmanama" is a phrase The Cheat used to offer to offer Homestar a glass of melonade in A Jumping Jack Contest and apparently means "Hey, Homestar, would you like 147 glasses of melonade?"
    • "Menamana, {Sudden drop in pitch} MAHna" is the phrase The Cheat use when Homestar (Strong Bad) asked what he thought of The King of Town's pumpkin at the Pumpkin Carve-nival and apparently means "The King of Town is SO lame."
    • "ManaMAna?!" is what he says in superhero name before Strong Bad says the cape looks great. It means "What, don't you like this costume?"
    • "Humana, (can't make out the rest)" is what he said to Strong Bad in sb_email 22 and means "Check it out, this is going to be great. Just say 'Screw all y'all!'."
  • Later on in this email, Strong Bad hits Strong Sad with a keyboard and Strong Sad says, "Douglas." It's Mike saying "Douglas," not Matt. [1]
  • Strong Mad finally says "DOUGLAS!" in an easter egg at the end of sibbie.
  • The LP was made by Thorax, also known as Thorax Corporation.
  • When Strong Bad types "Hang on a second." and calls "Hey, Strong Sad!", the screen says "Hnag on a second" after the change in camera view.
  • When Strong Bad calls for Strong Mad, while he's talking to him, the screen says, Citizens of Cory!...yadayada. Like the way it was before he called Strong Mad in there. It's missing the part where he typed "Well, you can't expect much..."
  • In the easter egg, you can see "Greetings from Monkey D".
