Strong Bad Email #98

STRONG BAD: {singing} Do do do do, email me some words, doo-doo, some different words.

{Reading email}

{Strong Bad mumbles instead of saying the word "Grumbles." He continues to do this throughout the email.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Uh, you don't really have to MAKE Homestar say stupid stuff, Grumbles, that's the guy's bread n' butter. Or at least his, uh, cracker n' mustard. No, the REAL challenge is to get Homestar to say something intelligent. {He clears the screen and continues typing.} If I can do that, then you owe me a batch of your special Grumblecakes. And if I fail, then I'll quit stealing the bricks from your house, one by one. Deal? Deal.

{Strong Bad goes to get up from his chair and Homestar Runner is leaning over his shoulder.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {quietly} Hi, Strong Bad.

STRONG BAD: {surprised} Ah, geez! Homestar!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, do you notice anything different about me today?

STRONG BAD: Um, you broke into my house?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, I'm always doing that.

STRONG BAD: {apparently unperturbed} Okay, what?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {standing on one foot} I'm standing on one foot!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, great. Look, I'll give you half a Grumblecake if you can say something intelligent.


STRONG BAD: It's like a little cake with some, like, steam and sugar.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, no, the other one.

STRONG BAD: Oh, "intelligent"?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, yeah, intellivision.

STRONG BAD: You know...something smart.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I think I can do that. {attempts to look shifty and cunning} ...What's in it for me?

STRONG BAD: {annoyed} Half a Grumblecake!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, right. Okay, here goes—

STRONG BAD: No wait, put this stuff on... It'll add to the illusion.

{Strong Bad gives Homestar Runner a white lab coat, black-rimmed glasses with masking tape, and a test tube. Homestar uses the test tube as if it was a microphone and he was interviewing Strong Bad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Whoa, check me out, Strong Bad, I look a-smart!

STRONG BAD: You sure do, stupid. Now say something.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {smugly} And I'm standing on one foot!

STRONG BAD: {urging} Come on, say something smart! You can do it!


STRONG BAD: Uh, that's pretty good. Keep going!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Science again! I said science again!

STRONG BAD: Let's move away from science. Try math.


STRONG BAD: Okay, this isn't going—


STRONG BAD: {groans} I need to get my hands on some of them Grumblecakes! Maybe if I employ a little reverse psychologies... If I ask a stupid enough question, I'll get an intelligent answer! {clears throat} I say, there, Homestar, butt's twelve by pies?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, yes! I got Strong Bad to say something stupid! {triumphantly} The Grumblecakes will be mine!

(Homestar runs off.}

STRONG BAD: What?! What the crap just happened?! Is it possible that I was just outsmarted by Homestar Runner?! {typing and shouting} I'LL GET YOU KEVIN GRUMBLES!!!

{The Cheat enters with a tray of The Cheatcakes.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Get that mess outta here! I don't want none o' those Cheatcakes! {He smacks the tray of The Cheatcakes out of The Cheat's hands.}

THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat exits dejectedly.}

STRONG BAD: {apologetically} No, wait, The Cheat, come back! {The Cheat comes back} Will you, um, fix me some...mustard crackers?

THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat exits again. The Paper comes down.}
