Transcript

Strong Bad: {singing} Do, du, dadadadum, do, dadadadum... {stops singing}

Hi Strong Bad,
 
I'm from England. What do you think of 
the English?
 
Thank you,
Mark

STRONG BAD: Gee, Mark, if you're really from England shouldn't you have some kinda unneccessary vowel at the end of your name? {He changes the name "Mark" by adding an "e" at the end.} And what is this "Thank you"? Whatever happened to "Cheers" or "Cheerio" or "Nevermind the Bollocks"? {He deletes the words "Thank you" from the message and types the words "Cheers", "Cheerio" and finally, "Nevermind the Bollocks".} Call yourself "English"! But anyways, what do I think of the English, huh? Oh, I'll tell you what I think of the English! {And a red big sign with white letters appears across the screen saying "BANNED IN THE UK."}

Strong Bad Offends The Royals!

In this Monday's edition of U.S. based "Strong Bad Email," the title character, Strong Bad, an odd little bloke with a Mexican wrestling mask for a head and boxing gloves for hands made such comments that warranted the Queen to ban the edition from UK shores. Strong Bad has been charged with "verbal crimes against the crown" and the Strong Bad Email, now simply being called the infamous "sbemail22," has been removed from broadcast in both the UK and the States. At a press conference held on Tuesday, The Guardian - http://www.guardian.co.uk

{If you click on "press conference", it will show a scene where Strong Bad is sitting next to The Cheat at the british press conference. A reporter asks Strong Bad about his comment.}

THE ANNOUNCER: Strong Bad, how do you respond to claims that your comment brought the entire royal family to tears?

{The Cheat whispers to Strong Bad the respond. Strong Bad clears his throat and speaks out to the microphone.}

STRONG BAD: Screw all ya'll!

{And the reporters get shocked.}

THE ANNOUNCER: Oh, blimey!

{A black-and-white photograph snaps Strong Bad and The Cheat.}

RINGO STARR: {off screen} I can't believe he said that.

{The Paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad - strongbad@homestarrunner.com", click on the text to email him.}

Easter Eggs

  • After the newspaper comes up be sure to click on the words, "press conference" to see the press conference.
  • After the press conference click on the stack of papers to see what the Cheat told Strong Bad.
    • Just say, "Screw all ya'll." Trust me. It'll work.

Fun Facts

  • The song Strong Bad sings in the beginning of the email is the theme to the orginal Donkey Kong game.
  • Nevermind the Bollocks is the title of the punk band The Sex Pistols' only album. Sixteen of their concerts were cancelled in England after band member Johnny Rotten cursed on Television.
  • Somebody sounding suspiciously like Ringo Starr says "I can't believe he said that" at the end of the press conference.
  • The paper that appears is a very faithfully reproduced version of UK broadsheet The Guardian, including references to that paper's supplement, G2. Also referred to are B2, a class of bomber used by the USAF, and F7, a type of rail engine.
  • If you go to the old Strong Bad Emails page in Secret Pages, it suggests that this really wasn't an email answered in the TANDY 400 period. Note that little animal immediately follows cartoon.
