Strong Bad gets asked about the lures and jigs he uses when fishing.

Features: Strong Bad, Coach Z


STRONG BAD: I check email from the front to the back, I said check email from the front to the back I said...


Dear Strong Bad, {Strong Bad repeats this line three times with different emphasis, stopping halfway through the third time saying "Hmm, I'll go with that one."}

Dear Strong Bad,

When you go fishing, do you use any sort of special lure or jig to attract the fishs? ''{Strong Bad says ""}''

{fade out and fade back in to "Fish Show With Strong Bad and Coach Z". Strong Bad and Coach Z are in a boat on a lake. Coach Z has a pole, Strong Bad does not. Coach Z is wearing a fisherman cap, Strong Bad has a wife-beater tan.}

COACH Z: Say, Strong Bad, what type'a lure are you usin' dere?

STRONG BAD: Well, this morning, Coach, I've been mostly using this one: Hey fish! Hey fiish! I'm gonna, I'm gonna recommend that you guys come up here in the boat. We've got a, uh, a keg! Of worms! And, uh... phytoplankton! ... Come on! Anybody who's everybody is up in here!

COACH Z: I don't think that's gonna work with a stocked pond. You got any type of jig you could try on there?

STRONG BAD: Oh, yeah! I got this jig! (starts singing and doing a little hip-swiveling dance) Come on and get in the boat, fish! Come on and get in the boat, fish fish! Come on and get in the boat, fish! {fish start leaping into the boat} Get in the boat!

COACH Z: Oh! They got in the boat! ... Fish fish!

{back to Compy}

STRONG BAD: Actually, David, it may surprise you to hear this but, uh... I don't know anything about fishing, man. You're welcome to try the jig thing if you want. Though it might work better with the ladies. {stops typing} You know, like, come on and come to my house, ladies! Come on and come to my house, girls girls! {resumes typing} Actually, {chuckles shyly} I don't really know anything about the ladies either. I mean I do! I mean-WHGT! JGTH! YES I'M AWESOME!
