Although [[Strong Bad]] is quite obsessive about everyone's [[Poorly Written Emails|spelling, grammar, and punctuation]], he still '''makes some of the same mistakes himself'''. Additionally, he has a tendency to make up words, usually during his [[Strong Bad Email|emails]]. It may be [[The Brothers Chaps]]' fault for some of these mistakes, as they are rarely acknowleged in toons.
-
*[[some kinda robot]] &mdash; In his very first email, Strong Bad says "before you go to bed" but types "before you ''got'' to bed."
+
-
*[[i love you]] &mdash; ''[[Fhqwhgads]]'' is misspelled as ''Fhqwgads'', missing the h in between w and g.  This is ironic because Strong Bad [[sibbie|later]] complains about people misspelling it in emails.
+
-
*[[i she be]] &mdash; Strong Bad types the phrase "all i gotta say..."  [[Lowercase i's|The ''i'' isn't capitalized]].
+
-
*[[duck pond]] &mdash; Strong Bad misspells ''unfortunately'' as ''unfortunatley''.
+
-
*[[band names]] &mdash; A space is added before, rather than after, a comma in this email: ''"the easiest way is to ,you know..."''

+

+
-
*[[cheat talk]] &mdash; Strong Bad does not capitalize the "the" in The Cheat's name when he first types it.
+
-
*[[dragon]] &mdash; After demonstrating how to draw [[Trogdor]], Strong Bad says, "Let's see how the other students are doing." However, when he types it, he omits the word ''see''.
+
-
*[[interview]] &mdash; Strong Bad catches himself using the phrase "more better" in responding to Kerrek.
+
-
*[[the show]] &mdash; Strong Bad makes two capitalization errors while typing [[The Cheat]]'s name.
+
-
*[[funny]] &mdash; At the beginning of the email, Strong Bad misspells the filename of his email client, strongbad_email.exe, as stongbad_email.exe. (This may be a reference to being called "Stong Bad" in [[50 emails]].)
+
-
*[[the process]] &mdash; After stating that he makes fun of people's poor grammar and spelling, Strong Bad promptly misspells the word ''occasionally'' as ''occassionally.''

+
-

Your invited?

From the FeedBurner page:

"Like two sides of an extremely rare, valuable, and attractive coin, there's Strong Bad the grammar policeman on one hand, and Strong Bad the guy that makes up a buncha crap all the time on t'other."

Although Strong Bad is quite obsessive about everyone's spelling, grammar, and punctuation, he still makes some of the same mistakes himself. Additionally, he has a tendency to make up words, usually during his emails. It may be The Brothers Chaps' fault for some of these mistakes, as they are rarely acknowleged in toons.
