STRONG BAD: Oh-you-thought-there-was-no-more-emails-but-guess-what-there's-an-EMAIL!

{reading email}

{Strong Bad says "Website. I mean, James" instead of just "James"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} You know, James, I've been around this great, big internet of ours a few times, so I know what I'm talking about, and I can safely say, that whatever idea you have is completely unimportant as long as you adhere to these fundamentals: {clears screen} First of all, you want to start out with a long flash intro. {stops typing} Like this one The Cheat made for me.

{"The Cheat presents" on a black background appears on the screen, followed by two green, bean-shaped eyes.}

STRONG BAD: Check it out, those are supposed to be my eyes, I think.

{The eyes fade and the letters "SB" appear. "Strong" and "Bad" are inside each letter}

STRONG BAD: That stands for my name.

{The "S" and "B" turn into "The Web" in cursive}

STRONG BAD: "The Web".

{"The Web" turns into "Welcomes 'u' '2'", the letters made of only horizontal and vertical lines. The words "strong bad's cybersite" appear in red below "Welcomes 'u' '2'". A rainbow circle about 3/4 the size of the "2" comes and rolls in, stopping at the quotation mark before the "2"}

STRONG BAD: That little rainbow thing's kinda cool.

{The word "cybersite" turns into rainbow colors. The words exit and a blackhole-like thing appears.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, go through the tunnel, oh look out!

{As he says "Oh, look out!", a hand appears to punch you, and after it does, the word "OUCH!" appears above it. The words "Get on in!" appear in a long button.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, you got punched! Aw, man, right in the face. {typing} Okay, next on the checklist: lots of animated GIFs! {pronounces it /gifs/; stops typing} or... GIFs... {pronounces it /jifs/} or however you say it. I don't know. I heard a couple of nerds arguing about it one time. {clears screen} But you want as many of those as possible.

{An animated GIF appears that cycles between a flame, the word "Fire!" and another flame.}

STRONG BAD: Especially the {Another GIF appears, featuring a mouse that looks side to side before revealing a letter labeled "INTERNET?" in its mouth.} rotate-y kind. {Two rotating GIFs appear, one of a guitar, the other of a diamond that flashes, showing the words "hi rez" which then disappear.} Those are awesome, man. Nobody gets tired of looking at those. {clears screen}

STRONG BAD: {typing} So, then you can pretty much just pick whatever for your subject. It doesn't really matter as long as you got the rest of that stuff on there. {stops typing} I mean, {resumes typing} James, the Internet is a place where absolutely nothing happens. You need to take advantage of that. {stops typing}I mean, you can make a webpage of your cat.

{A picture of a cat lying on a football with red eye thinking "It's 4th and 10. Now WHERE'S MY SUPPER?!?" appears}

STRONG BAD: or your The Cheat.

{A picture of The Cheat sleeping on a couch on his back on a couch thinking "It's 4th and 10. I hate cats."}

STRONG BAD: And, {typing} Who knows? Maybe tomorrow you'll be really big in Pakistan. Or at least, with some guy named Stan. {Stops typing} Anyways, I gotta go work on my webpage.

{Strong Bad leaves. The Paper comes down}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "strong bad's web page" to go to the Flash intro. Then click on "get on in!" to go to Strong Bad's Website.
    • Click on the F10 button at the bottom of the Strong Bad's website to read Strong Sad's Lament, Strong Sad's LiveJournal-esque weblog.
    • At the bottom of Strong Bad's website, click on the envelope in the mouse GIF. You get to the room where the emails are received.
    • Also at the bottom of Strong Bad's website, click on the Email GIF to send an email to Strong bad.
    • Clicking on the Enter GIF reloads the website, adding an extra STRONG BAD at the top each time.

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • The reason Strong Bad says, "Oh-you-thought-there-was-no-more-emails-but-guess-what-there's-an-EMAIL!" might be because fans thought the emails would stop because the previous email ended with the Compy 386 in a "flagrant system error."

Trivia

Remarks

  • The "get on in" Flash link during the email itself is clickable, but doesn't do anything.
  • At the end of the e-mail Strong Bad says he has to go work on his web site, but then he leaves his computer.
  • The music on the intro sounds very close to his description of Strong Mad playing bass on the email "guitar".
  • The entire email is actually a tongue-in-cheek critisism and mockery of amateur websites that use long flash introes, are uninteresting, and have many animated GIFs (which is frowned upon because many find them annoying, as they distract their attention from the page and are often of poor quality). Other, similar critisisms can be found on many humor sites, with the same format (advice on how to make a webpage, including all things that most people find annoying rather than actual helpful hints, though disguised as such).

Fast Forward

  • According to "flashback," this is where Strong Bad lost count of the emails.
  • In email 152, "isp," Strong bad refers to the breakdancing rodent GIF as a gif/jif

DVD Version

  • You cannot browse Strong Bad's website on the DVD. However, the intro to his website is still accessible (via a hidden Strong Bad icon in the lower right corner of the Compy 386 screen).
    • Note that the DVD version of the intro is out of sync—Strong Bad begins talking long before the animation ends.
