Preview Transcript

{The screen shows "In the next episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People" and fades to Strong Bad walking in from the right. The backdrop is the Strong Badian Flag.}

STRONG BAD: Friends and losers, my long incarceration has taught me that we can never be truly free until we reject the fat-thority of the King of Town. Hence to forthwith, I shall only refer to him as the of Town. As of today, Strong Badia is its own, independent nation. Onward to Strong Badia, Strong Badia the Free!

{Record scratch is heard and Homestar comes into view}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, that's the name of this-

STRONG BAD: {quickly} Shut up. {Homestar becomes sad}
