Transcript

STRONG BAD: {as if talking into a microphone} Check one, check two. Sibilance. Sibilance. SBEmail.

{While reading, Strong Bad says "Dear Strongbad I was wondering," as one clause, pronounces "dont" with a short O sound (as "daunt"), inserts exaggerated pauses where the ellipses are in the email, and says "somone" as a name.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Well, of course you're not, Somone. Or else you would've fallen prey to Edgar's Baby's Daddy: my Homestar junkmail filter. {clears screen} So what I don't have a candy product. I betcha I will by the end of this email. I'm famous, popular, and chick-magnet enough to have a candy product. Why is it athletes are the only ones with their own candy bars? Shouldn't they have their own brand of, like, jock-strap or divorce lawyer, instead? {clears screen} For my candy bar, we're gonna need a name that's 50% Strong Bad, 50% tooth rot, and 50% ta-dah!!! How 'bou... SBLOUNSKCHED!

{A brown "SBLOUNSKCHED! bar" smashes onscreen, and then disappears.}

STRONG BAD: 'Cuz that's how you're gonna feel when you eat one...like you got SBLOUNSKCHED! {has trouble pronouncing the end} Now we gotta be sure and represent as many of the different states—

{A candy-based periodic table covers the screen.}

STRONG BAD: —of candy matter as possible. We’ll start with a gaseous cloud of marshmallow vapor—

{While Strong Bad says the second sentence, a pile of marshmallows appears from the left and puffs into a shiny, white vapor.}

STRONG BAD: —encased in a globule of semi-solid licorice colloid.

{As this is said, some black goo comes from behind and encases the vapor in a bubbly black sphere. It shrinks while it and many other identical blobs will the lower part of the screen as the next sentence starts.}

STRONG BAD: A bunch of those will be floating in a channel of liquid nougat—

{A wave of white nougat fills the lower half of the screen, and the licorice spheres are floating in the new stream.}

STRONG BAD: —which I recently found out is the candy equivalent of veal. And we roll all that up inside a solid crispety cookety log—

{At the end of the last sentence, a cookie dough log with chocolate chips wraps around the stream and puts it back to the center. It has a small stump sticking out with a leaf.}

STRONG BAD: —and cover it with rich, creamy... pepperoni.

{Seven slices of pepperoni drop along the top of the candy log.}

STRONG BAD: Then sprinkle that with, not just crispy puffed rice, but whole tiny bowls of crispy puffed rice cereal.

{As this is spoken, twelve tiny bowls of chrispy puffed rice cereal drop onto the treat.}

STRONG BAD: And finally, smother that with the ol’ BBC: Boring Brown Chocolate.

{Liquid chocolate is poured onto the candy and completely covers it.}

ENGLISH VOICE: I say...

STRONG BAD: Now that is a confection worthy of the SBLOUNSKCHED name. But I need to think of a better shape than the standard piece-of-crap shape.

{Cut to Strong Bad in the bathroom, reading a newspaper.}

STRONG BAD: I’m talkin’ to you, Baby Ruth.

{Cut back to the Periodic Table.}

STRONG BAD: Lets see... shape, shape, shape, shape, shape—

{The candy rapidly morphs through a series of shapes: a chainsaw, a dollar sign, a thumbs-up, a syringe, a campfire, the state of Indiana, a moustache, and the Van Buren Statue.}

STRONG BAD: —ooh, what about my pants? Everybody knows my pants! And they come with a built-in bite out of them {chomp} for security, ‘cuz who’s gonna steal a pair of half-eaten choco-pants?

{Cut back to computer}

STRONG BAD: {Typing} Man, with a candy bar like that, you could get away with anything!

STRONG BAD: {Singing} You’ve got the munch, the crisp and the crunch, livin’ in the gutter with grandma. When coach puts you in, you gotta go for the win. Y2K turned out all right! SBLOUNSKCHED! You can do it! SBLOUNSKCHED! Crunchy chew it! Who’s got the money?!? You got SBLOUNSKCHED!

TV ANNOUNCER: {speaking very rapidly} Buy one and you can get one free root canal or cavity search.

{The Paper comes down.}

Explanations

  • Although the word colloids has several meanings, in this situation it refers to small particles that are suspended within the substance that contains them.
  • Sibilants (or "sibilance") is a word commonly used when testing microphones to make sure that sibilant sounds ("s", "sh", "z", and "zh") are picked up properly.
  • The date shown on the Tandy 400 is Friday, December 31, 1999. It is possible that Strong Bad was changing the date to avoid the year 2000 problem.

Trivia

Da NewsPapes
Da NewsPapes

World events continued for the 43rd
consecutive day. This is just 3 shy of
the all-time record of 46. Many believe
this to be a sign of things to come. Ed
Bache concurs. "This is a sign of
things to come."

Back Pape

Famous couples were spotted eating,
walking around, and on movie screens
across the country.

Remarks

  • Strong Bad's candy bar comes packaged in two different rectangular shapes — the first resembling the old Choco-Lite bar or a Nestlé Crunch with Caramel, and the second resembling a Kit Kat — in spite of the fact that the bar itself is supposed to be shaped like a pair of pants.

Goofs

  • There is no back button at the end of the e-mail.

Inside References

  • "Re: re: re: resending" is a possible reference to bottom 10, where Strong Bad explains that he hates emails that have more than one Fwd:, or Re: in the subject line.
  • "Draw Trogdor again ;)" is a reference to dragon.
  • This is another example of characters peeking from behind objects in the foreground.
  • One of the rejected forms for the candy bar is the bust of Van Buren.
  • At the beginning of the commercial, small print at the bottom reveals that it is a production of Cheap As Free Foodstuffs.
  • Marshie's creepy voice in the Easter egg is similar to an Easter egg in Pumpkin Carve-nival.

Real-World References

  • The "SBLOUNSKCHED!" commercial refers to ads for candies like Mentos where it is suggested that consumers of the product can do anything at all.
  • Baby Ruth is a popular candy bar 2 oz. in size in a log-shaped form. Strong Bad's allusion to its scatological appearance is most likely a reference to a like-minded gag in the film Caddyshack.
  • BBC actually stands for British Broadcasting Corporation, which may explain why the English voice is offended by Strong Bad's interpretation.
  • "Sibilance," a word describing the "s" sound, was used by Tom Hanks in a Wayne's World sketch on Saturday Night Live in a soundcheck for Aerosmith.
  • The "built-in bite" shape of SBLOUNSKCHED! may refer to Grizzly Chomps, a Hostess-brand treat introduced in 1992. The packaging had two cupcakes with a bite-mark shape, with a cartoon bear saying, "I start 'em, you finish 'em."
