===Explanations===
===Explanations===
-
*The Cheat making noises in the background near the beginning is a reference to news programs that play a bit of [[Wikipedia:Morse code|Morse code]] which fades as the anchor starts to speak.
+
*"The World in Crisis" is making fun of the fact that most news stations always start off by telling you about the most interesting news story and keep you waiting to see it for a long time.
-
*Strong Bad is likely affecting an exaggerated [[Spanish]] accent in his pronunciation of "sport" and "sportscaster." Because the s+consonant sound does not appear at the beginning of a word in Spanish, native Spanish speakers often have difficulty pronouncing such words and will add a soft e sound to the beginning.

*The Cheat says that he didn't mention any roads, which may have been out of necessity—there are no known roads in [[Free Country, USA]].
-
*When it first cuts to Strong Bad standing in Strong Badia, the sky is oddly pink, but for the rest of the email the sky is gray. This is different from Free Country, USA's usual clear blue sky.
