Summary

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.

Trasncript

THE 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

THE 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?
Heather

THE ANNOUNCER: Two of the same!

{Another email comes up. It reads:}

HOW DO YOU TYPE WITH THOSE BOXING
GLOVES ON?  THAT IS AMAZING!
FRANKDOG

THE 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

THE 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!

{reading}

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. {stops reading} Palace, Lee. I think you mean costume palace. {continues}

Yours,
Lee Conrad
Edmonton, Alberta

{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.}

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 go to him in the locker room with Coach Z.}

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

STRONG BAD: Yeah...

COACH Z: Maybe a little leg...

STRONG BAD: Yup.

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.

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 and making a whole bunch of errors}

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.} 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?
  • If you watch carefully Homestar's "Go Sports" hand turns into a baseball mitt while the scene transitions to Strong Bad back at the keys.
  • 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 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.
