Strong Bad Email #51

Strong Bad gives an emailer advice on building a website, and shows off his own.

Features: Strong Bad


Strong Bad : Oh, you thought there was no more emails but guess what there's an email!

{reading email}

Dear Strong Bad,
I want to start a new website but I don't have any ideas of what to do for my website. I was wondering if you could give me some ideas for my new website. This website will be cool and I'll email you when I'm done.

Sincerely Yours:

{Strong Bad says "website" instead of "James"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} You know james, I've been around this great, big internet 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:

{hits enter}

First of all, you want to start out with a long flash intro. {stops typing} Like this one The Cheat made for me.

{A black background appears on the screen with two green bean-shaped eyes.}

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}

that stands for my name.

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

The web.

{"The Web" turns into "Welcomes 'u' '2'" with only letters going horizontally and vertically. 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"}

That little rainbow thing's kinda cool.

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

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.}

Augh you got punched! Man, right in the face.

{typing} Okay, next on the checklist: LOTS of animated GIFS! {He pronounces it gifs instead of jifs} {stops typing}

or... jifs... however you say it. I don't know. I heard a couple of nerds arguing about it one time. But you want as many of those as possible. Especially the rotate-y kind. Those are awesome, man. Nobody gets tired of looking at those.

{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. 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}

or your The Cheat.

{A picture of the cheat sleeping on a couch on its back on a couch thinking "It's 4th and 10. I hate cats."}

I mean,

{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 out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad -", click on the text to email him.}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "Get on in" to go to Strong Bad's website.
  • On Strong Bad's website, click on the mouse with the e-mail to go to the Email Processing Room.
  • If you click on a button thats says "ENTER," you will re-enter the same website. Because it uses frames so poorly, the website will reload inside one of its own frames.
  • At the very bottom of Strong Bad's page there is an "F10" button, if you click it you get to Strong Sad Blog.

Fun Facts

  • The pictures of The Cheat on Strong Bad's website are actual photos of The Brothers Chaps's house with The Cheat added in later. The couch in this image is the same couch that appears in the G4 interview accessible here. The brick wall in this image follows the same brick pattern seen in the The Cheatar short.
  • Also, check out the contents of the fridge in this image. See if we can identify them all!
Top shelf in the door (left to right): Mt. Olive pickles, three jars Smuckers jam, two unknown jars
Bottom shelf in the door (left to right): three unknown containers, Hellmann's mayonnaise, three unknown containers, Heintz ketchup, two unknown containers
Top shelf inside fridge: water filter pitcher, loaf of bread
Bottom shelf inside fridge: hunk of foil that's been there since April
Strewn about on the floor: milk, Kraft parmesan cheese, unknown item
To the left of the fridge: Some Cold Ones
  • On Strong Bad's site you will always be the 16th biggest moron ever.
  • The picture on the site titled "long haired freaky cheat" will never load. The reason the picture never loads is because the image is directed to the file " oh, just nothing" in the source.
  • The rotating GIF about halfway down the page, the one that Strong Bad put two of, reads: "World Wide Wed."
  • Strong Bad's website is a parody of every overly ambitious, poorly executed, cluttered, pointless website that was ever made on the free webservers like Tripod and Geocities. In the late nineties websites abounded that were every bit as crappy as his.
  • According to flashback, this is where Strong Bad lost count of the emails.
  • "Welcome to your doom!" on Strong Bad's site is from an old video game called Altered Beast.
  • The "come on in" flash link during the email itself is clickable, but doesn't do anything.
