Rumor

I heard a rumour, (no pun) that when your email was chosen by TBC to be turned into a Strong Bad Email, you were sent a link to this page. Anyone else hear something like this? - Drhaggis 15:35, 16 Sep 2004 (MST)

In fact, during the Tandy era, everybody who sent an email to Strong Bad got an automated respose, along with a link to this page. (I hate to leave a good question un-answered) Thunderbird 18:25, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Broken Link

The new address to "The Rumor" is now broken. Probably not a big deal. oddtodd 16:18, 16 Nov 2004 (MST)

Remark

Strong Mad gets the bottle for the paper out of thin air, as most cartoons have this 

I think he clearly gets the bottle from under the table. No biggie - Dr Haggis - Talk 17:52, 10 Mar 2005 (MST)

Whoops

Goof! Some times when strong mad moves his arm up (with the bottle and to remove his glasses) his arm moves, but his arm also stays on his body. TBC are getting lazy...

Getting lazy? They made a slight goof. If you are interested in mistake-free cartoons, you are always free to create your own website and never make mistakes. What are you, some kind of robot that doesn't make mistakes? -- Tom 11:18, 19 Mar 2005 (MST)
Plus this was one of TBC's early works. If anything, they're getting sharper. Thunderbird 18:27, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Transcript

Can somebody maybe possibly make a transcript for this 'toon? I'm not goin to make one yet, since I don't know if you think it's a great idea or nit, and also because I'm not exactly the greatest at making them. --daunrealist 15:58, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

There's nothing to transcribe. Everything that happens is noted in the first section of the page, and no words are spoken. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 15:57, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Quite True. Thunderbird 18:28, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
unless of course you count strong mad yelling and strong bad laughing.-Anonomys 00:54, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Errors/Inconsistencies

I know you people are fussy, so I won't add these to the article myself:

  1. The stool that Strong Bad is sitting on is actually taller than the one he sits on in actual emails. Notice it has two rungs instead of just one.
  2. Strong Bad's computer desk is in the middle of the room, not against the wall as in actual emails.
  3. There are no cables protruding from the back of Strong Bad's computer.
Yeah, I guess "fussy" is fair. But I think it's only appropriate we are; the editors of a print encyclopedia are too. (And a heck of a lot less open to input!) And I know sometimes it's hard to know whether to make changes directly to an article just to see them reverted or to suggest them in Talk as you've done, just to see them ignored. But if you go with the first scenario and its reverted, there's no real harm done, so don't feel you can't do so.
     Anyway, thanks for pointing those out (I certainly hadn't noticed the rungs!). The only reason I wouldn't list them as errors is that this whole scene has little or no bearing on the Brothers Strong's real house. As far as we know, this room doesn't really exist, and we certainly know Strong Bad doesn't have a pneumatic tube delivering emails next to his computer. The whole thing could really be considered an Easter Egg, and they tend to carry less weight in terms of what's "real." --notstrongorbad 02:43, 6 Oct 2005 (UTC)

4. The computer appears to be resting on a CPU, but no CPU was ever actually seen in normal emails.
--DorianGray

try thinking about what notstrongorbad said before you add more things, we don't know that this is the E-mail answeing room anyway and we don't even know if this room realy exists.-Anonomys 00:56, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Cleanup

Lots of "you can" phrasing here. Other rewording seems important as well ("Strong Mad's right arm is messed up"??). I ain't no good at rewording; marking page for cleanup. OptimisticFool 01:30, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

We also need to find out how to find this on the sbemail dvd since that dvd's article says nothing about the toon. Bad Bad Guy 15:47, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Floating "goof"

I'd propose the "goof" about Strong Bad and his computer floating is not a goof at all, but intentional. As he and his table are in sillhouette, the white space allows the shapes to be more easily recognized. As this has been there a while, I presume, I'll await others' opinions before removing it.

I agree, it stands out too well to be an accident. But the part with Strong Bad floating off the stool is very odd, and I thought it was notable. But now that you mention it, it could have been intended. — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 23:19, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
I agree. It's just a stylized silhouette, not a goof. Loafing 23:30, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Dumpy USA & Adam's Blog

In this edit, some links were removed and the paragraph was reworded; this edit was later reverted. However, those links are now broken; I guess those sites have been taken down.

I don't feel like doing the work to sort through how this section should be fixed, so I'll let somebody else do it. I just wanted to bring it to people's attention. Trey56 15:42, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
