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 "strong" explodes, and the word "cybersite" turns into rainbow colors. The words exit and a tunnel-like visual 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 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}

Fun Facts




  • The "get on in" Flash link during the email itself is clickable, but doesn't do anything.
  • At the end of the email Strong Bad says he has to go work on his website, but then he leaves his computer. It might be because he needs to use The Cheat's computer since he has no mouse or a real browser.
  • The music on the intro sounds very close to his description of Strong Bad playing rhythm guitar on the email guitar.

Fast Forward

  • According to flashback, this is about where Strong Bad claims to have lost count of the emails.
  • In email 152, isp, Strong Bad refers to the breakdancing rodent GIF as a "gif/jif".
  • The photograph of Matt and Jackie's pet cat Mabel is later used in an epitaph to the now-deceased cat in hygiene.

DVD Version

  • Strong Bad's website cannot be browsed 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.
    • The entire website is stored on the disc and can be viewed through a computer.
