Strong Bad Email #82

"Your Friend" asks Strong Bad to do his best impression of Strong Sad. Strong Bad goes to the Strong Sad Lookalike Contest.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Coach Z, Bubs, Strong Sad, Homestar Runner, Homsar, The Cheat, The King of Town (offscreen)


STRONG BAD: {singing} Email: It's like the sugar on the candy for my stuff.

{reading email}

Dear Strong Bad,

Could you please do your impression of Strong Sad?

Thanks, Your friend... And there's no name. Um... Thanks, Your friend... Jhonka. {He types "Jhonka" under "Your Friend".}

{He begins typing a reply.}

No way, Jhonka! What a coincidence! I was just on my way out the door to go to the annual Strong Sad Lookalike Contest where contestants are judged on appearance, impression and penmanship. I'm a shoo-in this year, man. Wait'll you see my costume! {He runs off only to run back a few seconds later to quickly add}: Not beatin' around the bush this week. {He runs off again.}

{Cut to The Field. Coach Z is standing under a sign that reads: "2003 Sectional Finals - STRONG SAD LOOKALIKE CONTEST".}

COACH Z: Okay, I'd like to welcome everybody back! Hope you enjoyed your intermission there. Bubs, the hot cold cuts was great!

BUBS: {off screen} Those were moist towelettes!

COACH Z: So without further ado, I'd like to introduce the man of the hour, the deathly pallor: Strong Sad!!

{Strong Sad Joins Coach Z under the sign}

THE KING OF TOWN: {from off screen} Booo!

STRONG SAD: Thank you! Thank you! I'm simultaneously honored and insulted to be involved in this contest for the fourth year in a row.

COACH Z: That's enough there, Strong Sad! {He shoves Strong Sad out of the way.} Your work is done here. Let's get this pratty started!!

{Cut to a view of Strong Bad in a Strong Sad costume, which consists of a grey "Phys Ed" sweatshirt, and a paper plate with Strong Sad's face drawn on it. There's a suspicious looking lump under the sweatshirt.}

COACH Z: Looking good there, Strong Bad.


COACH Z: Nice use of light and shadow.


COACH Z: ...and picnic supplies.

STRONG BAD: I know. Shut up.

COACH Z: Let's hear what you got.

STRONG BAD: Alright. Let me just push play on my "sweat shirt" here.

STRONG SAD: {on a tape} Why do you want me to say "hello, my name is Strong Sad"? {tape noise} get that tape-recorder out of my face {more tape noise} stop flicking my ear!

STRONG BAD: {also on tape} More like: You stop flicking my ear!

STRONG BAD: {He stops the tape.} Ha ha. Oops.

COACH Z: Ok, then. Very unsuspicious.


{Coach Z moves on to Homestar Runner. Homestar is wearing hippo slippers and a grey shirt with a star on it, and he has a sock taped to his head instead of his signature hat.}

COACH Z: Hey there, Homestar. Nice hippo slippers.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Thanks. They're elephants.

COACH Z: Sure they are! Now let's hear your impression.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Um.. remind me again what type stuff that guy says.

COACH Z: You know. Depressing type stuff!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Right right! Here goes! Ahem. {in a depressing voice} Oh... Some animal died. {In his normal voice} That's something he's always saying, right?

COACH Z: Yeah, I think I heard him say that a few times. Next contestant!

{The next contestant appears to be Strong Sad.}

COACH Z: Strong Sad, you're not eligible for this competition! I though I told you's to go on home!

{A familiar looking hat pops up on the Strong Sad lookalike's head revealing that he is in fact, Homsar. His Strong Sad costume is flawless. Coach Z doesn't realize who it is.}

HOMSAR: {sadly} !AaAaAaAa... I'm crying on the inside!

{The Cheat hops up in a paper bag, painted to look like Strong Sad's left leg.}

COACH Z: Ok, The Chort, lay it on me!

THE CHEAT: {in a depressing voice} Meh meh. Mennah mennah mennah meh.

COACH Z: Holy Crap! It's as if Strong Sad was still alive and with us today! First Prize!


{Cut to Strong Bad's computer. Strong Bad walks up muttering. He's still in costume.}

STRONG BAD: Stupid Friggin' Cheat-in-a-Bag.

{He begins typing}

I can't believe The Cheat won sectionals for the 4th year in a row dressed up as Strong Sad's left leg. I knew I should have gone for the bigger butt. Oh well. At least I won the penmanship award. But I should get going if I'm still going to be fashionably late to the afterparty .

{He stops typing.}

STRONG BAD: So, until next time, all the ladies and dudes say: (singing) "Strong Bad is a cool guy! And we're not cool in the least!"

{He leaves and The Paper descends.}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "Jhonka" to see just what a Jhonka is. (Once again, we are shown that Strong Bad likes trolls)
  • Click on "Bigger Butt" to see Strong Bad's alternative plans for his costume.
  • Click on "Penmanship Award" to see Strong Bad's entry for the Strong Sad penmanship contest.
  • Click on "afterparty" to see what happened at the afterparty.

Fun Facts

  • Yes, Coach Z mistook Homsar for Strong Sad.
  • The form for the penmanship contest says 2004 Sectional Finals, however the sign for the contest said 2003.
  • At the after party Coach Z is drinking a not so cold one, reference to property of ones.
  • At the afterparty, "Poot-Slap" by 3-Dee is playing, which is also heard on the secret main page in the Homestar Talker game.
  • We never did actually hear Strong Bad's impression of Strong Sad...
  • When Strong Bad comes back to the computer after the contest, still wearing his costume, his hat is incorrectly mirrored in the screen's reflection.
  • When Homestar wears the elephant slippers, it's kind of a reference to when strong sad talks on the phone and sells strong sad's legs, which he calls elephants legs or feet or something. I'm not really sure
  • Strong Sad likes pie!
  • The Jhonka makes its second appearance in Peasant's Quest.
  • Homestar's quick repetition of "get it off" closely mirror's Bubs' renditions of "check it out" and "the end" (and Strong Bad's "The Cheat") in Lookin' at a Thing in a Bag.
  • The picture of Jhonka is reference to Dungeons and Dragons.
