This is Strong Sad's personal weblog. It originated with the Strong Bad Email website, when you could access it by clicking on the "F10" image at the bottom of Strong Bad's web site. It was on hiatus for 17 months until August 5, 2004, when Strong Sad remembered his password and began posting regularly again.

Easter Eggs

  • When at Strong Sad's user profile, you can click "[none]" after "friends" to see Strong Sad's fond memories, which he keeps under his bed. These include:
    • A "kard" by Strong Bad.
    • A snow globe with the words "You're Number 1".
    • A Super 8 film of Strong Bad scaring Strong Sad.
    • A photo of him and Strong Bad as children.

  • When depressio first came out, you could get it by emailing Strong Sad.
  • Here is Strong Sad's user profile:

  • For a short while on August 12th, 2004, heading to the front page of Homestar Runner (that is, the "come on in"/"watch intro" page) would instead bring up Strong Sad's blog. It was fixed before long, however. It's not certain if it was an accident or intentional, but given that it blocked all access to the site for a short period of time (without sneaking through the "404'd" pages), it's likely an accident.
  • When you click on Strong Sad's profile, when it brings up the info, look at the picture of 'Morpheus'. It will drip a small drop of blood from the pictures eye.
  • Strong Sad says he can't jump, despite doing two lousy jumping jacks in A Jumping Jack Contest.
    • This might be a reference to the fact that elephants are supposedly the only mammals who can't jump.
  • Strong Sad actually made a typo in the "Post-it on my face" entry.

He writes "If I type real quite, maybe he won't come in here." Instead of quiet.

  • Strong Sad's "Fond Memories" show that perhaps Strong Bad used to be nice to Strong Sad. However, this is immeadiately brought into question by the card.
  • The photo from the "Secrets that I keep" page show Strong Sad with a Peanuts (Charlie Brown) shirt on.
  • "Saddy Dumpington" playing a washboard may be a reference to 20X6 vs. 1936.
  • "Strong Sad's Lament" is a reference to a famous section of a Catullus poem (in Latin) called "Ariadne's Lament"
  • Strong Sad's profile quote says "Each day we die a little more.". You can hear him say that on the Spin 'n' Say.
  • "Arts b/w Crafts" in Strong Sad's profile is a reference to the titles of old vinyl singles and LP's, when "b/w" was an abbreviation put between the a-side name and b-side name which stood for "backed with".
  • The title of the 8/26/04 entry, "History Lesson Part II," is also the title of a song by the Minutemen (from 1984's Double Nickels on the Dime LP).
