*The file name for the .swf for this Strong Bad Email has an "x" after the number.  The .swf without the "x" is still viewable (and is considered a [[secret page]]), but has a few minor differences.  The music stops early, and some things are missing from some scenes (like the disappearing hot sauce) that are in the version with the "x". Also, as Strong Bad gets up from the computer, his reflection is seen in midair.
