StrongBadEmail #111

Brian asks what Strong Bad does on all the other days of the week.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Strong Mad, Coach Z, The Cheat, Homestar Runner and Strong Sad (Easter Egg)



STRONG BAD: {talking} I got an email in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt. Again with the

{reading email}

dear strong bad,
what do you do on all the other days
of the week?
brian holmes CA

{Strong Bad reads the name as "B. Ryan Holmes, certified arborist")

STRONG BAD: {typing and speaking like a robot}Good question, Brian. I am going to answer this email like a robot. Don't you think this is a great idea? {normal voice} Yeah, sorry, me neither. OK, other days o' the week. Let's see...

{A calendar appears with a heading "A Month" and weeks starting on Monday. On Monday is written "checka' e-mail.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover}On Tuesdays, I check my snail mail.

{"checka snail mail" gets written in on Tuesday. Cut to Strong Bad at a mailbox that reads "sb_snailmail.exe"}

STRONG BAD: I got a snail mail in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt.

{he opens his letter and reads it}

Dear Mr. Bad,
This constitutes your final warning.
Please remit payment of three(3)
dollars and sixty-two(62) cents or
you will be turned over to a "cut off
your toes" -style collections agency.

Bubs' Concession Stand

STRONG BAD: {speaking sarcastically} Oh, no, final warning. Is there nothing I can do to dissuade you? Like maybe give you a ride in my BMW?!?

{Strong Bad pulls out the BMW lighter and burns the paper, laughing. He then looks around.}.

STRONG BAD: Um... where's my house?

{Cut back to the calendar}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Then to better help folks over the hump, on Wednesdays I give free motivational lectures.

{"give lecture" is written in on Wednesday. Cut to the chalkboard with Coach Z and Strong Mad listening to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: You gots to look inside yourself! Positate the negative. When life throws pies at you, you make yourself a tall, cool glass of piemonade.

COACH Z: I'm a new man!


{cut back to the calendar}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Due to a prior arrest, Thursdays are community service days, so me and the old Cheatasaurus head down to Strong Badia and give the place a firm scrubbin'.

{"community service" gets written in for Thursday. Cut to Strong Badia, where Strong Bad is vacuuming the dirt and The Cheat is washing the Tire}

STRONG BAD: You know what I always say, The Cheat. Stay smart, vacuum... dirt.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Don't forget to wash where the sun don't shine.

{cut back to the calendar}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Then there's Business Casual Fridays, or as we say around the office, Biz Cas Fri. {"biz cas fri" appears on the Friday box} You know, because we have to abreeve everything.

{cut to the office}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That's the day we all wear the free polo shirts we got from various software companies.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, man. Did you play Online Gaming last night? No, yeah, no? I did. I got so many frags.

{cut back to the calendar}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} On Saturday I certainly don't wake up at 6 A.M., put on a Speedo, and go to swim practice. {"NOT swim practice" gets written in the Saturday box} No, no, definitely not Speedo. But I do attend: {a flyer for Battle Axe Lessons appears onscreen} BATTLE AXE LESSONS AT THE REC CENTER, with my teacher Dolph Hauldhagen, The Instruc-TOR! And of course, Sunday is the OTHER day I check my email, for our Eastern European viewers accross the pond.

{"checka my eastern european emails" gets written in for Sunday. Cut to Strong Bad sitting at a gray computer with the word "BLOCK" in the bottom-left corner}

STRONG BAD: I got a Polish e-mail in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt.

{reading, translator speaks over}

Dear Strong Bad:
Please to be untieing that shoelace on
the back of your head?


STRONG BAD: {typing} Untie my shoelace, eh Janus? Your
mother is the speed limit.
Your aspirin,
Strong Bad

{cut back to Compy 386}

STRONG BAD: That's pretty much my week. Now time for a refreshing glass of piemonade, or as we say around the office, p-nade.

{Strong Bad gets up and leaves. The Paper comes down}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "brian holmes CA" after Strong Bad says "Certified Arborist" to see B. Ryan Holmes' business card.
    • The card reads: "B. Ryan Holmes, Certified Arborist. Phone:555-XYLM Mobile:coming soon" It has pictures of green trees and says "I think it has to do with trees!" in cursive on the bottom.
  • At the end, click on "my week" to see Strong Sad waking Strong Bad up for swim practice.
  • Also at the end click on "piemonade," to see an advertisement for (Cool, Refreshing...) Piemonade (!!).

Fun Facts

  • When Strong Bad dismisses the email's text to make room for his new text, as he does often, it makes the standard typing sound effects instead of the hard "enter" hitting sound.
  • The calendar starts on Monday, as per some European countries. United States calendars usually start on Sunday.
  • Strong Bad's Mail box says sb_snailmail.exe on it, and has never appeared before. This, together with when Strong Bad says "umm... where's my house?" could mean that this is not a real place.
    • I thought that meant they took SB's house for not paying.
  • Strong Bad's advice to "make Piemonade" is a reference to the saying "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade".
  • When Strong Sad is waking up Strong Bad for swim practice, he mumbles various things, ranging from "I'll kill you" to the name of the classic SNES RPG, Chrono Trigger.
    • This is the third time that Strong Bad has talked in his sleep about Super Nintendo games. The last two times, for the record, were in morning routine and cheatday. I suppose this could qualify as some sort of running joke now...
      • I'd have to say this is a running joke after three instances. The Super Contra comment could have just been a reference to the Super Bomberman one, but now this goes backwards twice.
    • Judging from the muffled sounds Strong Bad makes during this, the "I'll kill you" is likely directed to Magus, a villain in the game (who can actually be one of your party members if you play things out right).
  • The Office where "biz cas fri" takes place is the same as in dullard and the Senor Mortgage short, and the conversation is very reminiscient of that from 'dullard'.
  • The room in which Strong Bad gives the "Motivational Speech" is reminiscent of the room in which he tries to teach people how to pronounce fhqwhgads in the email entitled sibbie.
  • When Strong Bad mentions having to do community service, it is likely a reference to the Strong Bad Is In Jail Cartoon.
  • On biz cas fri, Homestar Runner wears a shirt labelled 'Diskettes Etc.', while Strong Bad's has 'Micro Palace'.
  • While talking about online gaming, Homestar Runner says, "I got so many frags". It seems he's been playing numerous first-person shooters, in which a "frag" is a kill.
