Get ye dagger

strongbad_email.exe Bonus Email #2

Strong Bad kills a few E-mail birds with one stone, and answers three emails. This email seems to take place in the Tandy 400 era.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad



STRONG BAD: OK, let's see if we can kill a few email birds here with one big email bird killing stone. {reads email}

how are you why don't you make a joke

{Strong Bad reads the email exactly as written}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Uh, I'm fine, Bettina. Why don't you make a sentence? {stops typing, pulls up second email} Let's see what else we've got here... {reads email}

Homestar Runner is a total dork. Don't you
think he's a total dork? I think he's a total dork!
-Jeffrey Gilligan

STRONG BAD: {typing} I agree. Don't you think I agree? I agree! {stops typing, pulls up third email} And lastly... {reads email}

Do you like to horse ride? I am horse woman!
neigh. Horse woman can beat Strong Bad up.

-Naomi, AB

{Strong Bad reads AB as "ab"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Strong Bad feed horse woman poison oats. *sting* Minus 15 hit points! {types that as "-15 hp} {stops typing} Ohh. That put me in the mood for a little text adventure. I'll talk to you guys later!

{clears screen, bring up a text adventure, with the following text on the screen}

Welcome to Text Quest

You are in a hallway. Obvious exits are West, South,
and Over There. Around you is a dagger and another

What will you do?

STRONG BAD: Oooh, this is gonna be good. I hope I find some scrolls. Or maybe a flask. {typing} get dagger

{Text appears on the screen reading "What is 'dagger'?"}

STRONG BAD: {angrily} Oh, you stupid game! The dagger you just told me about!

{The Paper comes down}

Fun Facts

  • The text game probably led to Thy Dungeonman, seeing as it's extremely similar. (or vice versa - we can't really verify which e-mail was created first)
    • Strong Bad mentions the flask and dagger. The flask is a confusing and tempting item in Thy Dungeonman, and the dagger is something you can randomly get in that game.
  • "What is dagger?" is probably a reference to how many old text adventures usually wouldn't do what you told them to.
  • You can hear the hum in the background when Strong Bad talks, implying that this was recorded before they got a better mic and thus is an authentic old email.
