Strong Bad Email #89

A writer asks Strong Bad if Strongbadia has a local news channel. Strong Bad rushes off to make one with the help of Bubs, Strong Mad, The Cheat, The Poopsmith and The Tire.

Features: Strong Bad, The Cheat, Strong Mad, Bubs, Homestar Runner, Strong Sad, The Poopsmith, The King of Town, Marzipan


STRONG BAD: {Singing} It's email time again! Doot doodle-ooh-doo, Doot doodle-ooh-doo, Doot doodle-ooh-doo.

{Reading Email} Dear Strong Bad,

Does Strongbadia have its' own local news, even? If so, I hope it's better than my local news.

Sincerely, Dan D.

Tallaha-... Tasalan-.. Gainesville, Florida {it says "Tallahassee"}

{typing} Okay, Dan, I'm only going to sing this one more time: {singing} Ohhhhhhh If you want it to be possessive, it's just I-T-S but if it's supposed to be a contraction then it's I-T-apostrophe-S. Scalawag.

Ahem. Um, of course we've got local news. It's the- It's the greatest! Um... But I- I have to go now... and... do something... completely unrelated to me... throwing together... the aforementioned local news. Hoight!

THE CHEAT: {makes Cheat noises in the background}

Strong Bad {holds up "Strongbadia Action Cool News 5" sign} Strongbadia Action Cool News 5! Top Stories with anchorperson Strong Bad, Strong Mad with the sports, local weather with Tire, and The Cheat with SkyCheat Traffic!

Good evening and tonight. I'm Strong Bad with today's top stories: The World in Crisis! More on that later. Now lets check in with The Cheat with SkyCheat Traffic.

(Strong Mad throws The Cheat high into the air.

Strong Bad makes helicopter sounds.

THE CHEAT: {keeps getting thrown up and down, and his speech is subtitled} Thanks Strong Bad...This is The Cheat... with SkyCheat Traffic...There appears to be...some congestion...around Bubs' Concession Stand.

{cuts to the concession stand. Homestar, Marzipan and the King of Town are standing in line. There is a sign that says "Stand in Line $5"}

Homestar Runner Best five bucks I ever spent.

{cuts back to Strongbadia}

STRONG BAD: Thank you, The Cheat I guess those roads should not be rode on, eh?

THE CHEAT: {subtitled} Not funny...I didn't even mention...any roads.

STRONG BAD: Yes, well, thank you, tonight,now on to our top story: The World in Crisis. {You can see Bubs, but he runs away} But first, Strong Mad with the sports.

STRONG MAD: {bouncing football on the floor with a tennis racket} I SHOULD WIN! I SHOULD WIN IT! {swats football at camera, you can hear Strong Sad saying "ow"}

STRONG BAD: Well, it looks like our sportscaster isn't being a very good sport, eh?

THE CHEAT: {subtitled} Pathetic.

STRONG BAD: Will the winter weather chill your cheeks? What's the word, Tire?

{cuts to the tire with a weather map. The map falls on the tire and it rolls away. Cut back to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: You heard it folks. Bundle up, but keep your swimsuit on outside your pants. Tonight folks, and have a great job. Remember to turn in tomorrow for our special investigative report expose: The World in Crisis. Strongbadia Action Cool News 5. "We're investiga-awesome".

{The Paper comes down.}

Easter Eggs

  • At the very end you can click on the little muscle arm to bring up Strong Bad's educational CD, "Strong Bad's Rhythm 'n' Grammar." Be sure to click on it to hear him sing the "ITS" song and several others!

Fun Facts

  • The arm on the S in the sign is a reference to Trogdor.
  • At the beginning when Strong Bad sings "it's email time again", it's a reference to the KISS song "Cold Gin" ("It's cold gin time again...").
  • In the beginning the email is from Tallahassee, FL. Strongbad says it's from Gainesville. Any college sports fans know that the Florida State Seminoles are from Tallahassee, and the University of Florida Gators are from Gainesville, and they are major rivals.
  • The sportscaster card says "sportscarster", and spelling mistakes are atypical for Strong Bad. Perhaps Coach Z made it.
