[edit] Copy Paper

How were those e-mails printed? They're certainly not printed on The Paper. -AndromedaRoach 21:36, 08 Apr 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Clavicus Majorus

Clavicus Majorus doesn't sound like gluteus maximus at all :x

I was going make an argument similar to this, but I can see it's already here. So... here is the fact in question:
  • The "clavicus majorus" is a play on two body parts: the clavicle (also known as the collar bone) and the gluteus maximus (the buttocks).
I agree with the clavicle part, but how is "majorus" in any way similar to "maximus"? The gluteus maximus is a muscle, not a bone. The fact is, we really don't know where The Brothers Chaps got the word "majorus" from. -BazookaJoe 02:26, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] It's not the first time...

This is one of the few instances where you can actually understand one of The Cheat's words. He says "hello" when we see him filing unused email into the three stacks.

[edit] CDs

This is the first time we see Strong Bad with CDs. However, his computer probably doesn't have a drive capable of burning CDs.

[edit] You have a stupid and ugly butt

One of the easter-egg e-mails reads, in part: "you are stupid and have an ugly butt and your stupid and a piece of crap." This seems to be very similar to the song "You Have a Stupid and Ugly Butt" in Strong Bad Sings. Assuming that the easter-egg e-mail was real (which I wouldn't be surprised if it was), could either Strong Bad Sings be referencing it, or this e-mail referencing the toon?

All emails are real, except the one in mile. However, SBS came out first, so the email would have to be based on it rather than the other way around. --Jay (Talk) 20:01, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
It is possible that TBC had received the "you are stupid/ugly butt" e-mail quite some time before Unused Emails, perhaps even before SBS. I realize that we don't know, but considering how other parts of the site are often inspired by emails and outside references, I wouldn't be surprised to find that "You've Got An Ugly And Stupid Butt" in SBS came from that e-mail. That's why I suggested that SBS may have referenced the easter-egg e-mail rather than the other way around. -- KieferSkunk
SBS came out a long time before Strong Bad started answering emails. And I'm not sure if anyone would send TBC that email. --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif, 21:17, 12 October 2005 (BST)
Also, it's pretty well accepted that Strong Bad answers emails sent to him around the week before the 'toon comes out, though I don't know how that works for lesser emails (like the one in question.) --Jay (Talk) 05:42, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Deleting email

Under "remarks", it says that the email stays up even after he deletes it. However, it seems he deleted the other unused emails that he was referring to, not the one he was answering. - TheTinyGiant (non-member)

[edit] Why am I pointing this out?

Before this email came out, I use to think Strong bad was the oldest. Becaus he came before Strong mad in the year book, and the strong libs. But now I know he came befor Strong mad becaus of alphabetical order. I mean its kinda obvius becaus Strong mads taller than Strong bad, but so is Strong sad. Unless you see things in Strong bad green eyes. User:Yo yo mom

[edit] sbemail, unsure

Is this the first time Strong Bad or any other character has actually said "sbemail"? It was first mentioned in sbemail22, but I can't think of it being said earlier than this. If it is, should it be mentioned?--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 06:28, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it is. It's kinda unproductive to search for just "sbemail". There's no way to search just the transcripts, is there? This email is the first time it's in the intro, according to Strong Bad Email Intros. If it is the first time in the whole email, I think it should be mentioned, since we noted the first time Free Country, USA was mentioned.-- 22:02, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Dan

OK. So I've added this twice now. And it's been deleted every time. What's wrong with having a link to the Dan page? It is part of the Dan running gag, even though TBC didn't choose the name. ~ CoachZ(talk · contribs)~ 21:35, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

How can it be part of the gag if TBC didn't choose it? --DorianGray 21:36, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
No it's not. see this edit (one which actually reverted me) for proof. — Defender1031*Talk 21:37, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Reasing?

In one of the unused emails, someone asks SB if he enjoys "reasing". Does anyone know what the heck this means? My guess is that it's just a misspelling of "reading". 22:32, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Since "d" is right next to "s" on a standard QWERTY keyboard, I'd say that's the best guess we're likely to come up with. Heimstern Läufer 22:34, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Email Bubs?

Has anyone e-mailed bubbs after it was first out? I just tried and it said there is no such adress.

The page outright says that the e-mail address does not exist. --Jay (Talk) 23:21, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
