Not the 100th Email!!! is a cartoon resembling the Internet Explorer 6 error page in which Strong Bad taunts the viewer for trying to take a sneak peak at the 100th Strong Bad Email and Homestar Runner adds to the hilarity. It was created in response to Strong Bad Email fans who woke up on the Monday mornings in the two weeks following different town without a new Email. After being teased by Teen Girl Squad Issue 5, Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 10.2, and Puppet Time, they went as far as to check the expected URL for the Email directly, in hopes that they could see the Email as soon as possible. The only way this could be done was to type "http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail100.html" into their address bar, since this address would follow the format used for the previous ninety-nine Emails. These users kept getting the usual 404'd page, until about 2:20 a.m. (EST) on Tuesday, March 16, 2004, when this toon was released. watch (more...)
