STRONG BAD: {singing} This email is making fun of you.

STRONG BAD: Oh man, this person made all kinds of typos. Lemme type this, {changes "Weak Bad" to "Strong Bad"}, they forgot this, {adds "the Good Dancer" after "Strong Bad"}, they got this wrong {changes "Someone stronger than you" to "Someone that is a girl" (with the phrase "a girl" italicized and in a pinkish color)}. Ah, there we go! {typing} Oh, Simone! You seem like a really {in the pink color} nice girl, so I'll answer your question relatively {again in the pink color} free of charge. "Strong Bad's Bottom 10" is as follows:

{cut to Strongbadia. The "Strong Bad's Bottom 10" Logo flies in from the top of the screen.}

STRONG BAD: Number Ten is easy. Dry T-Shirt Contests. {a Dry T-Shirt contest flyer flies in from the top.} You'll never find a more degrading contest or a larger waste of not water. {the flyer flies away} Creeping in at Numbah Nine is that horrible painting that's been in Strong Mad's closet since we were little. {dramatic music starts playing, and we cut to the door of Strong Mad's closet. Strong Bad is there, sliding the door open slowly.}

HORRIBLE PAINTING: {menacing, under its breath} Come on in here.

{Strong Bad screams and slams the door. He begins flailing around, uttering "jibblie" over and over, almost incoherently. Cut back to Strongbadia.}

STRONG BAD: Incidentally, the jibblies currently occupy Slot number Eleven {Numbers ten and nine shift up to show *11. The Jibblies *Not in bottom 10 in gray.} on my Bottom 10. {Number eleven slides out of frame, Ten and nine return to their former positions.} Numbah Eight is the one you should all pay close attention to: Emails with more than one "Fwd:" or "Re:" {pronounces "fwd" as written} in the Subject line.

{Cut to the computer room. Strong Bad is preparing to answer an email.}

STRONG BAD: Back out of my way, so I can check some email.

{Strong Bad presses enter, and the email appears. However, the subject line fills up the screen, consisting entirely of "Fwd:" and "RE:". The subject line continues scrolling while Strong Bad talks.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, great. Let me guess. "It's true! You saw it on the news!" Or, "Hey, sounds crazy, but thought it was worth a shot!"

{Cut back to Strongbadia.}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, a shot in the face, maybe. Now, Seven is something that's been going on for way too long. Miniaturized versions of already bite-sized food.

{An ad for Fluffy Puff Marshmallows appears.}

MARSHIE: Yowza! Guess who birfday it is! {a question mark appears} Mine! {the lights suddenly go out, and Marshie makes an odd face. A miniature Marshie walks onto the screen, with Homsar's movement noise.}

NIBBLES: Sorry, Marshie, but it's my birthday. I'm one years old. My name's Nibbles, for new Fluffy Puff Marshmallows bite-si—

ANNOUNCER: All-new Fluffy Puff Bite-Size Nibblers are perfect for newborn-type babies {A baby emerges from a mountain of Nibblers, and then ducks back down}, and scalding hot chocolate {Pull back to reveal the marshmallows atop a cup of hot chocolate, which catches on fire}. No more mouth strain with Fluffy Puff Nibblers! {A mouth is shown straining at a full-size marshmallow. The caption reads "You Got Mouth Strain?" with a red circle and line "no" symbol drawn through it. The symbol rolls away as the marshmallow changes to a Nibbler. The mouth smiles and the caption reads "Heck No!!"}

NIBBLES: I make good earplugs too. {Marshie flies onto the screen.}

MARSHIE: Get out of here, you little runt! {Marshie makes the same odd face as before. The commercial suddenly pauses, and PAUSE appears on the bottom-left corner of the screen.}

{Cut back to Strongbadia.}

STRONG BAD: And-a Numba Six-a: the Foul Stench of Wet The Cheat.

{Cut to The Field. The Cheat is standing there, soaked and shivering. Next to him, is a ladder, a cup, and a sign that says "HIGH DIVES – 5 bucks." Cut back to Strongbadia.}}'

STRONG BAD: And number Five, {music stops playing}, um... not pigeons. {a pigeon starts cooing.} They eat breadcrumbs. They craps on people. Funny stuff. NUMBER FOUR! "{Music plays again}" There was this one time where I had to hug a tree.

{Cut to the field. Strong Bad and Homestar are there, and Strong Bad is hugging a tree.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Keeeep ooon huggin' it.

STRONG BAD: How did you get me to do this in the first place?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hug it! Hug it!

STRONG BAD: And why do I continue to do it?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Keep on huggin' it. Hug it down.

STRONG BAD: I don't even like this tree that much.

{Cut back to Strongbadia.}

STRONG BAD: Ooh, now we're getting to the good ones. Number Three is the ridiculous trend of giving chocolate desserts dangerous names. You know, like, Chocolardiac Arrest. {a picture of Chocolardiac Arrest appears.}

WOMAN: {Voice} Oh, that looks sinful.

STRONG BAD: Or... THIS BROWNIE MIGHT KILL YOU. {a picture of said brownie appears.}

WOMAN: {Voice} Oh, this is so rich.

STRONG BAD: Or, quite possible the least appetizing name of all time... Chocozuma's Revenge! {a picture of Chocozuma's Revenge appears.}

WOMAN: {Voice} This is all fat-free, right?

STRONG BAD: Shut up, lady! Slumming in at Number Two are songs that try to pass off la la's, na na's, and doot do's as legit lyrics. As evidenced in Limozeen's bizarrely titled "Feed The Childrens." {the album art of "Feed The Childrens" appears}

LIMOZEEN SOLO:
Na, na, la la laaaaa,
Hey, hey! Doo doot doo! [1]
Na, na, la la laaaaa,
Hey, hey! Doo doot doo!

LIMOZEEN:
Na, na, la la laaaaa,
Hey, hey! Doo doot doo!

{A record scratches, the song stops, and the album art slides off the screen}

STRONG BAD: Ugh, what were they thinking? More like, "We need to feed our children, so we made this terrible song." And, the Number One item on Strong Bad's Bottom 10 is Th—

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey Strong Bad. {camera zooms out to a two-shot of Homestar and Strong Bad.} What about my bottom—

STRONG BAD: {interrupting} Nobody wants to hear your bottom 10, Homestar.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, no. Not my Bottom 10. My bottom! You know, {singing} butt-dance again, like the rhythm's in your pants now! {Homestar does a butt-dance, and Strong Bad begins to make vomiting noises. Cut to the Lappy, which has the Bottom 10 displayed, where he then vomits onto his keyboard, off camera.}

STRONG BAD: Oooh. Ugh. {weakly} And the Number One item on Strong Bad's Bottom 10 is... Th {typing} cleaning up your own puke off the keyboard. {Strong Bad clears the screen.} Simone, that'll be $7.50. And bring some paper towels. Eww. And some tweezers. I think I see a Fluffy Puff Nibblin in there.

{The Paper comes down. After about twelve seconds, the cursor reappears and Strong Bad continues:}

STRONG BAD: {weakly} No, there's no Easter eggs. I'm not up to it. Go away.
