STRONG BAD: Email, women, email, girls! Email, women, email, girl!


Dear Strong Bad,

My friends and I are at a volleyball tounament and we were wondering how come homestar never does anything funny anymore?

your friend,
Tori From VA, TX {Strong Bad says "Virginia, and Texas. Respectively."}

{typing} Anymore Tori? I wasn't aware that guy did anything funny. Ever. But if you want to see Homestar so bad, why don't we check out what he's doing right now. We'll see how it measures up to say, me kicking the cheat into Strong Sad with the chicken pox.

{the screen cuts into static, and then it goes to Homestar hosting his very own "The Show". With him are !PomPom and The Poopsmith.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: But it turned out I didn't die. {audience laughter} So, once again, I'd like to welcome the Poopsmith and !PomPom onto the show. Gentlemen: hands on buzzers. {!PomPom and the Poopsmith glance at each other; there are no buzzers} The Poopsmith for 500 points: Would you care to share with us some of your polictical views? {The Poopsmith brings out a sign that says "Hey, um, I'm gonna go now." He walks off.} And !PomPom, for the block. Do you agree? {!PomPom bubbles and bounces off. Audience applause.} Alright, that's 162 points for each of you. We'll be right back with round two after these important words from these important messages.

{a little ditty is played and a title screen is shown saying "We'll be right back." Marshie shows up for a Fluffy Puff Marshmallow Commercial.}

MARSHIE: Hey guys! You'd best eaten a whole mess of Fluffy Puff Marshmallows! You won't think twice with a couple of them stuffed in each cheek! They make my morning shiver with flavor, shiver with flavor! I'll say it twice! This is gettin' great! Fluffy Puff Marshmallows! "The first one to eat a million, wins."

{Back to the show}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Alright. Welcome back to the shaow. And now, I choose to recite a list. {pulls out some cue cards} Ahem. "Tetherball." "Olympic race." "Sparkling." "Tim Duncan." "Wisconsin." "A book of matches." "Next week." "A lot of money." "Witch's brew"---

{static cuts back to Strong Bad at his computer}

STRONG BAD: Oh. {typing} Problematic. You know it's been awhile since I've kicked the Cheat, but I guarantee it'd be comedic gold compared to that mish-mash. And what's with that flying mushroom he's always advertising for. I can't understand a word that guy says. {stops typing} Anyways, Tori, lemme know how the volleyball tounament turns out. Touns out. Learn to spell.

{The Paper comes down}

Fun Facts

  • Main Page 19 was made after this e-mail.
  • When Strong Bad says "What's with that talking mushroom he's got on his show?", he's referring to Mellow Mushroom, another website The Brothers Chaps created, which features a variety of talking mushroom people, most of whom are hard to understand.
  • Near the end, when Homestar is reciting a list of words, he says "Witch's Brew." This is a reference to the "Pumpkin Carve-nival" holiday toon.
  • When Homestar says "Pom Pom for the block," it's a reference to the game show "Hollywood Squares".
  • Homestar's microphone looks just like Bob Barker's from "The Price is Right"
