best one in awhile, but only two eggs that I can find: "Fish Lake" and "CD's"

I didn't want to enjoy it, but making breakfast out of cold pizza and half and half made me giggle.
2003-06-30 09:12:44 AM  
That was great!!
2003-06-30 09:12:59 AM  
Feels like they just phoned this one in... I was half expecting H*R to jump up and down and shout LEEKO LEEKO LEEKO!... there has to be another Egg we're missing.
2003-06-30 09:13:24 AM  
It also reminds me why I dont drink mountain dew.
2003-06-30 09:14:29 AM

2003-06-30 09:14:47 AM  
how do you guys find the eggs? do you just start clicking furiously on the screen or what?

2003-06-30 09:17:45 AM  
Rock_Strongo: try tapping Tab whilst watching.

Oh, and did this remind anyone of the major pet peeve many, including me, always had when people called Nintendo cartridges "tapes"?

man, that always used to get on my nerves.
2003-06-30 09:18:40 AM  
That was a good one

Awesome..... best SBEmail in a while.
2003-06-30 09:24:29 AM  
It was alright, they've obviously been better. Next week's will probably be good now that StrongBad's keyboard is covered in Moutain Dew.
2003-06-30 09:24:56 AM  
Am I the only one who doesn't understand these?

Actually, I do understand and love the Strong Bad e-mails, I just wanted to be the Weeners the above statement.
2003-06-30 09:25:22 AM  
Damnit. I thought he was gonna destroy StrongBad's computer by pouring soda on it... thus forcing StrongBad to get yet another computer. Come on, give him an old Amiga!
2003-06-30 09:25:47 AM  
Huh? I didn't type "the Weeners"! I said the first!
2003-06-30 09:27:48 AM  
This story hits the enail on the ehead
2003-06-30 09:28:49 AM  
Ha! Neverending Story reference! Love it!

Believe it or not, I have that song on my Nomad Jukebox. And the happy hardcore remix. Wait, did I just say that out loud?
2003-06-30 09:30:17 AM  
I admit I felt a little jipped by this pretty unfunny email but the neverending soda thing was great. A really kick ass song originally too.
2003-06-30 09:32:57 AM  
Yes you did Pepe, you clearly typed "the Weeners". It's simply impossible that fark has some sort of hyper-intelligent, super futuristic, alien hybrid technology filter. Where in the world would you get such an idea?
2003-06-30 09:35:28 AM  
This could be another computer time for SB.

Ever seen what mountain dew does to a computer
2003-06-30 09:36:09 AM  
Whoah, that was some kind of evil homestar! Look at his eyes! I think the guy has finally cracked!
2003-06-30 09:36:33 AM  
I think this is to get Strong Bad back fro pouring the Cheat's glowstick into his Mountain Dew the last time. (the "Lightswitch Rave" episode)
2003-06-30 09:37:34 AM  
hopefully next week's email will make up for strong bad's lack of presence this week, by being..double funny...
2003-06-30 09:37:39 AM  
Maybe StrongBad will get a new 486 now.
2003-06-30 09:37:51 AM

2 eggs in this one.

"Fish Lake" like the other mentioned

and click on the word

"CD's" for the 2nd.

2003-06-30 09:38:57 AM  

Neverending Story. Classic.

Also, "sb_enail.exe"??? ENAIL? What an ass!
2003-06-30 09:39:01 AM  
Worst. Email. Ever. I can understand that maybe the person that does SB emails was busy and could not get one made for this week, but don't just substitute HR and think it'll be funny! Jesus that sucked a$$!
2003-06-30 09:40:12 AM  
"amusing" is a term they should start using more conservativly around here
2003-06-30 09:44:10 AM  
I'm with feck on SB getting a new computer. My guess is that the new computer will be a pentium class, and SB will have a hard time using a GUI because the CLI will no longer be available.
2003-06-30 09:45:22 AM  
He should get a linux box... that would rock.
2003-06-30 09:45:24 AM

2003-06-30 09:48:10 AM  
I see Strongbad coming back next week and trying to type his usual 'run sb_email.exe' line, and getting 'rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr' instead while freaking out.

Sheesh, that was so unreal. I mean, you don't ruin a computer by pouring mountain dew on the KEYBOARD. It's not a commodore or a Vic-20.

2003-06-30 10:00:52 AM  
I agree with you all that he should get a new computer... However, Jono.. I don't think he's going to get a 486. If he gets anything I would guess he'd get the original Pentium w/ the math bug in it. Although, it would be funny if he somehow wond up with like a Mac Classic or something like that.

2003-06-30 10:01:02 AM  
Y'know, I think I had the Sears version of "Shploitz" for my Atari 2600.
2003-06-30 10:01:08 AM  
God, that was the worst one in a while, what a ripoff.
2003-06-30 10:01:46 AM  
He typed ENAIL in the headline because HomestarRunner mistypes it at the beginning command prompt. I believe he types "" or something like that.

Anyways, this email blew.

2003-06-30 10:09:24 AM  

The same person does all the voices except for Marzipan. Therefore it was a conscious decision on the part of the Bros. Chaps to make Homestar do this week's email.

And Homestar IS funny. :P

Sheesh, that was so unreal. I mean, you don't ruin a computer by pouring mountain dew on the KEYBOARD. It's not a commodore or a Vic-20.

Yeah, but if they poured liquid on the computer, Strong Bad would be computerless - this is better because it gives SB a chance to come back and get pissed off instead.
2003-06-30 10:15:47 AM  

As soon as Homestar wrote on the computer screen with chalk, I knew it was gonna be a good one. But then I was suddenly dissapointed when, even at the end, Strong Bad did not show up.

"Never-ending sooooddaaaaa...ahahah!"
2003-06-30 10:18:30 AM  
I'm sure people ask this all the time but...

How do you save these to your hard drive?
2003-06-30 10:20:04 AM  
Anyone see what it says on the eraser? School something? It's probably nothing but i just want to feel like on belong in this thread. :0)
2003-06-30 10:20:07 AM  
Pouring Dew on the keyboard didn't even ruin it, guys; the monitor stays the same while he does it and the ringing noise is Strong Sad's egg timer. Sheesh, pay attention and you'll realize that the Chaps actually DO know what they're doing. And I think it's hilarious that H*R is too dumb to even ruin a computer properly.
2003-06-30 10:20:52 AM  
they skip last week then half-ass us this week with HR?!?!?!
2003-06-30 10:22:34 AM  

Mountain Dew? *Urgh!* Gimme a Crab Juice...

2003-06-30 10:22:45 AM  
I guess it'll be time for Strong Bad to get a Windows 3.1 machine now.

Maybe Win 3.11 for Workgroups.

2003-06-30 10:23:37 AM  
I've never heard so many people complain about a comic before. Homestar "stupidly" mis-spelling "email", pouring Mountain Dew on the keyboard instead of the computer. It's fine if you don't think it's funny, but you are probably the same people who question how the aliens in Star Trek all speak English.

I'm glad you are moved enough to comment on the cartoon - good or bad. It has made an impact.
2003-06-30 10:24:07 AM  
Gotta agree with you on that one. I also hate it when people call controllers "paddles". My wife does it all the time and it drives me crazy.
2003-06-30 10:26:24 AM  
This is why Homestar Runner is so much funnier than Strong Bad.
and cooler.

That HR is a funny guy...even though he has no arms, or at least any visable ones. I love Mountain Dew too its makes me feel peppy....Being peppy is good. I don't see why some of u people r always hating on SB and the gang, it makes Monday less er ...Monday.

What the heck was The Cheat wearing?

To me it looked like a fireman's outfit: raincoat and hardhat. Someone else mentioned Sgt. Pepperoutfit.

I'm sure people ask this all the time but...
How do you save these to your hard drive?

If you use IE, then go to Tools menu > Internet Options > Settings > View Files. Then just sort by Internet address and look for the Flash Movies.

And if your lazy here is the link

You can download the rest by just changing the number.
2003-06-30 10:30:25 AM  
Commodore 64 is the way to go.
2003-06-30 10:30:58 AM  
I've gotta admit, The Cheat's reference to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band seems a little random. Funny, though.

And why does everyone take SBemail so seriously? I mean, to take time out of your Monday to rip it on Fark? Lighten up, guys, and laugh a little. I say three cheers for the Brothers Chaps for making Mondays a little more entertaining. And I'm looking forward to the followup email next week. I mean, what self-respecting geek hasn't spilled Mountain Dew on his keyboard at least once?
2003-06-30 10:33:54 AM  
And how, praytell, did Homestar even pour the Mountain Dew onto the computer if he doesn't have hands!

Cartoons that use cartoon physics are bad. I will therefore only watch cartoons where the laws of physics are strictly adhered to.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go watch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

2003-06-30 10:41:16 AM  
Since The Cheat showed up right as Homestar was talking about how to make a wet computer out of Strong Bad's computer, I assume it was a raincoat he was wearing.

Whoa, Homestar, those are some fresh kicks, there!
2003-06-30 10:41:42 AM

2003-06-30 10:49:19 AM  
Dudes, SB is still recovering from the killer sunburn he got two weeks ago. Give him a break.
2003-06-30 10:51:17 AM  

He's probably going to be all peelly and gross
2003-06-30 10:51:49 AM  
I thought it was funny, but I always think Homestar is funny because he sounds like a retarded person when he talks and retarded people make me laugh.

On another note, Homestar is so busted because you know the Cheat will tell SB what happened.
2003-06-30 10:52:04 AM  
Can you change the monitor brightness every episode? I just found it by accident this time. If not, that could be an egg.
2003-06-30 10:52:32 AM  
"Seh-ga tapes"...rofl.

Actually, whenever I go to to visit the thrift stores I usually find that the old videogame cartridges are kept in the same place as the audio cassettes and 8-tracks. If there are any old videogame collectors on this thread then they can back me up on this. This could be a matter of convenience on the part of the management, but it is probably borne out of a true misconception that these little plastic boxes actually have magnetic tape inside of them.

Next thing you know they'll be referring to old Playstation games as "CD's". Hey, waitaminute...

Pretty funny sbemail (hrenail?) today in any case.
2003-06-30 10:53:04 AM  
Wonderfool. bravo, bravo
2003-06-30 10:54:46 AM  
dancenhance - Yes, you can change the brightness in every episode. Even the old 286, you could... not an egg.
2003-06-30 10:59:20 AM  
2003-06-30 10:59:21 AM  
By itself, this e-mail is very weak. However, I'm guessing that it's a set-up e-mail for another computer for Strong Bad.

He's had a Tandy, and then a 386. The Cheat already has an iMac, so I doubt we'll see SB getting one of those. Perhaps he'll get an Amiga this next time around? Or possibly some ancient Linux box? Or maybe even a Pom Pilot?
2003-06-30 10:59:56 AM  
Pretty funny one. Wonder what Strongbad will say when he finds his keyboards sticky next week.
2003-06-30 11:01:10 AM  

Nuff Said.
2003-06-30 11:02:52 AM  

Oh, and did this remind anyone of the major pet peeve many, including me, always had when people called Nintendo cartridges "tapes"?

There is a reson many older folks do that. Back in the old days programs can on tape. So a lot of old people never adapted.

2003-06-30 11:05:27 AM  
About pouring Montain Dew on the keyboard and not the computer.


Other examples of the same type of irony:

Example #1: In the movie "Independance Day" did you notice the the guys flying ine the alien spacecraft fitted perfectly into the alien seats. That's so unbeleivable.

Example #2: In the movie "The Flintstones" they use an elephant to wash the dishes. That's so unbeleivable! I mean, at that time it would have been mammoths!

I agree with you but your on crack with your two points,

1) These were fighter plane seats that they had fitted. that is why they had english writing on them.

2) I have never seen a purple elephant before have you?

1) They fitted fighter planes on an ALIEN spaceship? That's so unbelievable! Come on! How did they screw them on the floor? What types of bolts can you use on alien metal? Why did the dashboard line up perfectly? This totally ruined it for me (as opposed to the complete asinine strategy of the aliens to conquer earth).

2) Purple elephants? Well, this one time, at band camp, I got really drunk...

good god Kevin5lynn I hope you're using SARCASM up there. How is it IRONIC that the guys could fit in the alien seats? or IRONIC that Mt. Dew was poured on the keyboard. I think a better case of IRONY fell when I was playing some yahoo game and Dixiechikgurl6969 (whatever) joined Team USA. I'm sure someone has one of those nifty photoshops defining IRONY. This would be a good time and place for it.

Oh.. SBenail... dissapointing. I hope you guys are right about it being a setup.

I can't they're feeding us this crap. I'll admit, it wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't good. I guess they're either:

1) Setting us up for something good next week (pretty likely)

or 2) Resting on their laurels after being named to Entertainment Weekly's "It List" of the 100 most creative people. (also prettly likely)

Oh well, after losing out on last week, and the craptacular email this week, we can only hope SB returns next week.
2003-06-30 11:30:12 AM

Actually, I think it showed a bit of rudimentary character development on behalf of the creators. Homestar isn't going to just sit there and take SBs crap anymore so he's getting back at him with a little maliciousness of his own.

Oh no, the Seargent Peppers connection fits,

Strongbad is dead!

Thats why no e-mail last week, they substituted an old-timey sneak tribute W only brief flashes of Sir Strongbad so they can get us used to the imposter. They training a dupe.

Don't you fools see? thats why Homestar kicked the cheat aside, he was trying to warn us!

Strongbad is Dead!

The most annoying thing in Independence Day is that they bring down an alien computer network (?) by uploading a virus (?!?) from a Mac (?!?!?).
2003-06-30 12:19:47 PM  
Actually I've had that ID4 argument out before. The aliens had to have made their computers compatible W ours in order to use our satelites as they did. And despite their higher intelligence they were a hive mind, they would probably not have virus protection because a group oriented mind wouldn't think of designing a virus to damage hive property as individual humans do. You can't defend against what you can't imagine.

I thought it was the best one we've had in a while.
2003-06-30 12:37:43 PM  

Indeed. My parents were smart enough to realize I only needed one console from each generation growing up, so I had a Nintendo, then a Sega Genesis, etc.

Alex Kidd in Monster World rocked. Shining Force II and Shadowrun were the bomb, though.

I love Homstar. I also love Homsar. I think Homestar and Homsar should meet with hilarious consequences.

I also agree that Homestar should get a weekly feature. Unless that means the Chaps have to quit their jobs to work on it full time, and then charge us money for the site. Unless they now have a Mountain Dew contract that will pay them to do homestar if they just include a little "fun with mountain dew" part of every toon...

As for pouring Mountain Dew on the keyboard, Homestar is dumb. And if you'll notice the screen, it does not ruin the computer. I don't know where you people are getting that from, the computer is fine. I really don't see whats unrealistic about it (except that Homestar doesnt have hands, but thats for funny)

conspiracy theory? I believe we were discussing a work of fiction.

Actually ID4 was kind of interesting, if a little cheezy and overblown, there was the War Of the Worlds inspired ending and the implicit criticism of American consumerism wrapped up in an otherwise patriotic film.

Sorry I forgot this is Fark. It's totally uncool to actually like anything that is popular.

Homestar Runner proves, once again, he is the man.

Really, if jumping up anhd down on the keyboard while dropping ketchup on it didn't kill the computer, I doubt Mountain Dew will.

I remember one time I dripped some berry juice in my keyboard. Not wanting it to gunk up the keyboard, I tried to sip it. I then remembered I hadn't ever vaccuumed the thing. Nasty...

I usually keep a fast food type soda drink near my computer for those times I need a cold beverage. But one time I left one there for a few days and it got really flat and warm. I tried to drink it, forgetting that it was old. As soon as it touched my lips, I knew it was bad news. I spit that crud out all over my keyboard. Nothing was broken though. The only casualty was the "right arrow" key. Push it down, and it stays down.

2003-06-30 03:05:16 PM

Meh, either you love Strong Bad or ya hate him, but in the end, why's it worth arguing? I mean, I hate most rap music, but I'm not gonna sit here and tell you radio stations are wasting there time by playing it. It pleases some people, so it sells. Plus it's not like the Fark is wasting anymore time posting this than posting stories about baboons eating baby brains...or maybe that was another site.
Personally, I thought that even though this week's email was short, it was really cool. I love Homestar, so it was quite fun to see him go.
2003-06-30 03:46:11 PM  
It was pretty good..strong sad's shirt was great.

They should update Marzipan's answering machine..
those are mostly hilarious
2003-06-30 03:46:54 PM  
whoohoo, Homestar Runner e-mail!

Homestar desperately needs his own weekly feature. Strong Bad started out as the funniest character when I first got hooked on, but Homestar takes the prize now. There have been funnier e-mails, but this was a good effort.

I'm gonna be singing the never-ending soda song all day now.
2003-06-30 03:50:56 PM  
I wondered if this email was a setup for something next week, too, but the last time I thought that nothing else came of it. Remember "Current Status" ( )? I was expecting that to be a setup for something else, but it hasn't been mentioned again.
2003-06-30 03:59:35 PM

"It's pretty, tides, blah, blah, blah." What's that smell? Must be.. dead horse!

This one was so stupid it was funny. I didn't think it was the best, but it was something a little different. Overall it was pretty good though, even though I felt a little disappointed that SB wasn't there.

Homestar needs a weekly thingie. It's his website for crying out loud!
2003-06-30 05:13:46 PM

Please get over yourselves.

The Chapman's seem to work hard at this stuff and they're doing it without the money that usually fuels some of your sad entertainment AND they still manage to make it more interesting, more entertaining, and more humorous than TV. So lighten up and stop making advanced capitalism any worse than it is now (and it's pretty bad). It's "your kind" that gave us N'Sync in the first place.

Is anybody else tired of how some (many?) people piss and moan as if they are ENTITLED to a great strongbad email every week? I mean, sure, it's to be expected every week 'cause it says so - but it's free, so nobody's really in much of a position to demand anything. No e-mail last week? So what? It's a little silly to dis' the brothers Chaps for something they're doing for free. Someone said "What a ripoff!" You didn't get ripped off unless you paid money for it. Heh.

See, the mountain dew fried some keyboard bus on the motherboard, thus making it impossible to use a keyboard on it, rendering it useless(since it would halt on boot without a keyboard, and this was before usb keyboards were prevelant).

I doubt anyone will see this at this point, but references have been made to the "Paul is Dead" thing and the Pepper suit.

I think they're making a reference to people wondering if the Cheat is dead or not.

Of course, that doesn't explain why it's George Harrison's suit. (Unless the Cheat died of a brain tumor.)
