Strong Bad Email #41

Tandy 400 is dead and gone. BEHOLD! Da Compy 386! A spectacle of graphics and sound! Strong Bad discovers being invisible really isn't worth it.

Features: Strong Bad, Bubs, Homestar Runner, Strong Mad


STRONG BAD: {off-screen} I'm hooome!

{He walks to his old computer and sits by it.}

STRONG BAD: Okay, let's see here. Don't need this anymore. {He removes the post-it on the screen that says "DORKS!" on it and an angry face with sharp teeth below.} And don't need this anymore. {He knocks down his old computer.} For behold... {He replaces his old computer with a new one.} a 386. A spectacle of graphics and sound! {The "386 Version 1.5" logo appears on the screen.} Okay, let's get to checking!

strong bad,
what would you do if you were 
invisable for one day????
sin studly17

STRONG BAD: Well dumb name, this is something I've often thought about myself. And I came to the conclusion that... I don't really think being visible prevents me from doing whatever I want to do. So I'd probably just do the kinda stuff I normally do.

{An invisible Strong Bad steals two boxes of swiss cake rolls from Bubs' Concession Stand.}

STRONG BAD: {background voice} You know, like, steal stuff...

{Bubs turns around to find the swiss cake roll boxes floating away.}

BUBS: My chocolates! Come back, my chocolates! I didn't mean what I said.

{Homestar Runner is standing infront of the bushes.}

STRONG BAD: {background voice} ...punch stuff...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Marzipan is late. {The boxes of rolls float up to Homestar.} Oh hey guys!

{A punch noise is heard, Homestar doubles over, the cake rolls keep floating off.}

Oof! Owww. Those things are bad for you.

{The invisible Strong Bad eats the swiss cake rolls on his couch infront of the TV.}

STRONG BAD: {background voice} stuff... and at the same time... watch stuff...

{A buzz sound is heard from the TV.}

STRONG BAD: Hoo ha ha ha! Survey says, you're an idiot!

{Strong Mad enters the room and walks to the invisible Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: Oh hey man. Look, I'm sitting here, I'm just invisible, okay? Hey! Brain-for-brains! I'm right here! The floating Swiss Cake Roll is talking to you! Hey, now what the...NONONONO...

{Strong Mad gets angry and jumps on the couch where the invisible Strong Bad is sitting.}


{Cut back to the computer with Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: Ugh! {typing} Nevermind. Being invisible is not worth a face full of Strong Mad butt. {stops typing} Whoa! {resumes typing} I feel like I need to take a shower. I dunno when the last time he washed that singlet was. {stops typing} Anyways. Remember, kids! Take your vitamins, pretend you're hilarious, and always, always, e-mail Strong Bad.

{The paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad -", click on the text to email him.} {Then the screen fades out and back in to see Tandy in a trash can.}
