Strong Bad Email #63

Lee Conrad from Edmonton, Alberta asks Strong Bad why he doesn't get fake fingers, so people stop asking him how he types with boxing gloves on.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Bubs, Coach Z, Strong Sad, Strong Mad, Homestar Runner



ANNOUNCER: Previously on Strong Bad Email!

{An email asking about how Strong Bad types with boxing gloves on pops up. It reads:}

dear strong bad,
how do you type with boxing gloves on your hands?
aaron pratt
marion, in

ANNOUNCER: A familiar message!

{A second email comes up. It reads:}

Yo Strong Bad. What's crackin? I was
wondering how you type with your
boxing gloves on?

ANNOUNCER: Two of the same!

{Another email comes up. It reads:}


ANNOUNCER: And another one!

{Yet another email comes up. It reads:}

Dear Strong Bad,
How can you type so fast when your
wearing boxing gloves?
Typing Faster Than You...
Brandon Hicks, Enumclaw WA

ANNOUNCER: Frustration of frustrations! It's all they ever ask! {the next two announcements are accompanied by text banners coming up on the screen} WILL THEY NEVER CEASE?!?! STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT!

STRONG BAD: {singing} Welcome to the Strong Bad Email dat-daddle-dun! Everybody get down!


Dear Strong Bad,
Why don't you add some fingers onto
your boxing gloves so that people
stop asking how you can type with
boxing gloves on? They wouldn't have
to be permanent. They'd be like the
phony antennae you buy at the joke store
or costume place.

Lee Conrad
Edmonton, Alberta

{Strong Bad stops momentariliy and says "Palace, Lee. I think you mean costume palace." after reading "costume place"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Fake fingers, eh, Lee? Well, I do hate those emails. Hmmmmmm...

{We do a fade-out like we're going into his imagination. We see him at Bubs' Concession Stand.}

STRONG BAD: Hey Bubs! Gimme a little something-something.

BUBS: How many you need?

STRONG BAD: I'll take three.

{He holds up a hand which has a candle, a leg from his Strong Bad Action Figure, and a shrimp for fake fingers. Transition to the couch room where he's rocking out to music with Strong Mad and they're doing the rock fists, with the index and pinky fingers extended. Strong Bad has all sorts of crazy stuff for fingers. Then we cut to him in the locker room with Coach Z.}

COACH Z: Looks like you got some type of a prawn on there...


COACH Z: Maybe a little leg...


COACH Z: Ooh! And a candle! That's a good one.

STRONG BAD: Yeah, I think that's my best one. You know. Keeps-a me warm at night!

{cut to Homestar standing on a soapbox with fake arms attached}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: And frankly, I'm worried tha-

STRONG BAD: Hey, shut up, Homestar!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh hey, Strong Bad!

STRONG BAD: You look ridiculous!

{cut back to Compy, where Strong Bad is typing with the fake fingers on and making a whole bunch of errors}

STRONG BAD: Well, Lee, it's a good idea in theory but uh, in reality, I don't think it would work out very well. But it would be pretty cool to be able to do the evil fingers. {What's actually typed: "qwelo jwee, ufs gopod isda treery vuit yuiyyj, un tweanouty U du'p yhij utz quijf reardy owd vera nis. bu6 rt woild b pletyt gool yo be swabl tp do teh ebil flindas." Stops typing.} Anyways. I don't wanna be around when this shrimp goes bad. Whooh!

{The Paper comes down. Strong Bad starts playing with the shrimp.}

STRONG BAD: {doing the voice of the shrimp} I'm a shrimp! Doingita-doingita-doing! Don't eat me, somebody, oh no, I'm a shrimp...

Easter Eggs

  • When you see Strong Bad talking to Coach Z, click on one of the lockers to Coach Z's right (your left), on the handle specifically. What is going on with Strong Sad?
  • When you see Homestar with his goofy arms, click on the side of the box. Strong Sad is in trouble.
  • Stick around at the end for the funny things Strong Bad says about the shrimp.

== Fun Facts == .

  • When you see Strong Bad jamming with Strong Mad be sure to notice Strong Sad over on the right- dead!!!
  • Homestars fake arms consist of a "Go Sports" Foam glove on a baseball bat and a piece of drier hose with gummy worms. If you watch carefully Homestar's "Go Sports" hand turns into a baseball mitt while the scene changes to Strong Bad back at the keyboard.
  • One of the songs from the Strong Bad Sings CD, "Moving Very Slowly", now plays when Strong Bad and Strong Mad are jamming in front of the TV.
  • If you listen carefully during the email when Strong Bad says "Palace, Lee, palace." He says Lee's name before he reads it on screen.
  • The phrase "costume palace" is referred to in the King Of Town's character video, when the King says that he didn't "just buy a crown from the Costume Palace."
  • At the end, you can still click on the contrast buttons. Pressing Tab helps.
  • Strong Sad dead? To see why listen carefully when Strong Bad is on the phone in Email 50.
  • Much of this episode appears to be a day dream of Strong Bad.
  • This is the first (and only) time you see the side of the Compy 386.
  • One of Strong Bad's false fingers appears to be a leg taken off one of the Homestar Runner action figures from an easter egg in the SB email "action figure."
  • The announcer at the beginning is likely a reference back to the old 1960s Batman TV series in tone and choice of wording.
  • The crate Homestar is standing on reads "ELEVEN SOAPS."
  • During the announcer section,Strong Bad does not move his head while talking.
  • When Strong Mad is headbanging, this is the first time you see a top view of his shoulders. They are at right angles, almost cubic.

DVD Version

  • The original version of "Movin' Very Slowly" (as in, non-CD version) that Strong Bad and Strong Mad headbang to is included as opposed to the newer one.
  • This email features hidden creator's commentary. To access it, switch your DVD player's audio language selection while watching.
