Features: Strong Bad, Strong Mad, The Cheat, Homestar Runner, Marzipan

Transcript

{Strong Bad bounces his head slowly up and down, right and then left while he sings "Emaillll eeeemailll eeemmailll...". He sounds like a racecar or something.}

Dear Strong Bad,
What do you sound like when you breathe helium?
 
Shack
Whittier

STRONG BAD: Oh I dunno, Shaq {First he types "Shack" with "q", then he erases "q" and types down "ck" instead.} I haven't done that in a while. Though I think we have some leftover balloons from a party we threw last night. Lemme see.

{Strong Bad leaves his seat and goes to a room where Strong Mad and The Cheat are standing. Strong Bad takes a yellow helium balloon and breathes it in.}

Hey guys, how do you like my sound? {Strong Mad laughs.} Pretty great, huh? I sound like... one of the golden girls. Or like, some type a guy who might... sing a song. You know like {singing} "Welcome to the High Voice Crew! I hope you have a high voice too! When you've got a high voice, you don't have a choice, {Suddenly his voice falls down to his ordinary tone.} your voice is high all the time. Welcome to the High Vo..." {stops singing} Oh, I guess... I got kicked out of the High Voice Crew.

STRONG MAD: MEEEE!!! {Strong Mad takes a blue helium balloon angrily} MEEEEEEEE!!! {He breathes it in but his voice doesn't change.} THIS IS MY FUNNY VOICE!! THIS IS MY FUNNY VOICE!!!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, that's a pretty funny one big guy. {He scratches his head and The Cheat swallows a helium balloon. He flies smoothly across the room.} Aagghh... I've got a wicked head rush...

{Homestar Runner and Marzipan are standing in front of each other in the park.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: So from then on, it was pork and beans.

MARZIPAN: I don't think that's entirely healthy.

{Homestar Runner looks above behind him and sees The Cheat floating.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Whoa, Marzipan. Check out that ugly bird.

MARZIPAN: Homestar, I think that bird is The Cheat.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No way! The Cheat is one fine looking young man. That is an ugly bird.

{The paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad - strongbad@homestarrunner.com", click on the text to email him.} {The Cheat keeps floating in the sky.}

Easter Eggs

  • After the paper, wait for The Cheat to fly back from the right. Click on him to hear Strong Sad say "I'm sad that he's flying".

Fun Facts

  • When addressing Shack, Strong Bad types Shaq by mistake and erases it quickly, reffering to the NBA's tall player from the Lakers.
  • During the helium scene, a keg that reads "melonade" sits off to the side, which is the same keg from the old A Jumping Jack Contest cartoon.
  • And the Strong Sad quote is from The Cheat's attempt at a main page, where he says "I'm sad that I'm flying"
  • This e-mail marks the first appearence of Marzipan's new mouth movement style. (Look closely at how her mouth moved in cartoons like Where's The Cheat? and you will see the change)
  • Strong Bad saying "I sound like one of the Golden Girls" may or may not be an intentional ribbing at Bea Arthur. Bea Arthur played one of the main characters on The Golden Girls and was famous for having a very deep, manly-sounding voice (unlike Strong Bad's helium-enriched voice).
