Page Title:Lappy 486



{The email begins with a red curtain with "sbemail 200" on it. Then, cut to the Lappy with a pixelated bugle on it. Trumpets begin to play. Pan out to the Computer Room with roses on its floor. The Cheat does a small flute solo, then the Poopsmith begins to sing.}

THE POOPSMITH: {singing} Two hundred sbemails, exhausting just to think about. How can we face two hundred sbemails? The thought of all those sbemails makes me weeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaak!

{During the song, Strong Bad enters the computer room on the red carpet. Coach Z and Marzipan throw roses. Strong Bad continues to approach the computer, showing that the King of Town and Bubs are also in the room. Cut to the singer, who is revealed to be the Poopsmith, as he finishes his song.}

STRONG BAD: PUKE! Please be seated. How about that, Poopsmith? Breaking his vow of silence to perform my two hundred sbemail intro song! I'm almost sniff {voice wavers} not totally disgusted!

STUB'D! This section of the page is incomplete. You can help the Homestar Runner Wiki by expanding it.

Easter Eggs

  • Rolling over somes of the email names at the end brings up a photo of a character that debuted from that email.
  • At the end, click on "legends" to see a scene about The Poopsmith's singing abilities.
    {a tattered scrap of brown paper appears, with The Poopsmith drawn on it, along with the words "200 email curse", "legend tells...", "The Poopsmith", and "old parchment"}
    NARRATOR: Legend tells that every 200 sbemails The Poopsmith would break his vow of silence—
    {the drawing changes to The Poopsmith holding a micrphone and wearing a bowtie. The words "Well, well, well, my Michelle..." are added.}
    NARRATOR: —and croon anew.
  • At the end, click on the "O" in "Strong" to see a scene with Limozeen.
    LIMOZEEN: Congratulations Strong Bad on your {a voice interrupts, loudly saying:} 200th {voice ends} email!
    {slight pause}
    LARRY: {startling the other bandmembers} WE'RE FROM {the voice cuts in again} THE YEAR 2008!
    PERRY: Uh, I think it says that at the top of the screen, Larry.
    {the words "it is 2008!" appear over the Limozeen logo)
    {The band members strike various poses and the frame freezes, as the ending riff from "Brain Sister" plays.}
  • At the end, click on the "A" in "Bad", to see more with Strong Bad's soda.
    {Strong Bad continues to pour Mountain Dew on the Happy. Homestar walks in.}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, cool. How did you get it to do that? USB? Four pins? Eight pins? Firewire? {muddying the word with his speech impediment} Fouloul? I bet it was Foul Owl. {walks out again}
  • At the end, click on the "A" in "Emails" to bring up a pop-up to download the "200 Emails" song by They Might Be Giants.
  • At the end, click on the "S" in "Emails" to see a scene with Strong Sad.
    {Strong Sad is giving a review on his review show, "Review Revue"}
    STRONG SAD: In his shocking 200th episode, Strong Bad turns the entire series on its ear. Will we ever see a 201? Is the reign of HREmails at hand? For the answers to these questions, be sure and not check out my blog. I haven't updated that thing in years!
