"Well, let's just see here... Zero capitalization... Misspelling... Lack of punctuation... Looks like a winner to me!"

Strong Bad regularly receives emails with poor grammar and spelling, which he rarely hesitates to point out. He even released an entertaining/informational CD on the subject in an Easter egg in local news called "Strong Bad's Rhythm 'n' Grammar."

While many emails do contain these sort of errors, this list only contains errors that are either famous in their own right or have affected how Strong Bad read the email.

In contrast to the many criticisms of poor spelling and grammar, Strong Bad applauds Dan from Pennsylvania in autobiography because he makes no misspellings, has a good idea, and makes fun of dumpus, calling it a "SOLID e-mail."
