Fun Facts



  • "I she be" is most likely a typo of "I should be" or "I shall be," or perhaps "I am her."
  • At the top of the IM window, it says "instant messenge." "Messenge" is not a word, though it may be a play on, or a misspelling of, the word "messenger."
  • There is dispute on Strong Mad's height. This email says 6 feet while the facts says 88 inches (7'4"). The secret Strong Mad sticker page indicates that he is 8'3" and 900 lbs.
  • When first responding to the email, Strong Bad says, "all i gotta say..." The I is not capitalized, contrary to his ruthless attention to mechanics.
  • The IM conversation between The Cheat and gr8lookinggrrl contains several instances of Internet Slang.
  • In the previous email (credit card), Strong Bad forwarded an email to Homestar Runner by simply typing "forward message". It's possible his email program was changed between these two emails, though he is often shown to be generally ignorant of computer technology. Alternatively, it may be configured to forward emails to Homestar by default, while allowing to specify another recipient.
