STRONG BAD: Man, if I had a nickel for every email I get, I would throw them at people in the food court. From that railing, like up above.

{Starts reading with "Da da da--"}

Dear Strong Bad,
Dude, who cuts your hair? It's
sooo coull. I can't decide what to
do with mine, any suggestions?

Harry Earlenmacherg
Düsseldorf

{Strong Bad pronounces "coull" just like it is spelled, and in place of "Earlenmacherg", he says "ergonomics"}

{typing} I got no hair, Düsseldörke, so I'm gonna have to reach on this one. Now who's got hair around here?

{Cut to Strong Bad and Marzipan by the gazebo. Strong bad is holding scissors.}

MARZIPAN: You've got to be kidding me.

{Cut to Strong Bad and The Poopsmith in the field. The Poopsmith points to one of his hairs.}

STRONG BAD: Uh... never mind.

{Cut to Strong Bad and Marzipan by the gazebo again.}

MARZIPAN: I'm growing it out for charity.

{Cut to Strong Bad and The King of Town by the castle.}

THE KING OF TOWN: Nobody touches the 'stache.

{Cut to close up of Homestar. He's got an angry look on his face.}

HOMESTAR: N O spells no.

{Fade back to show that Homestar is off by himself, talking to no one, while Strong Bad and the King of Town are in the background.}

STRONG BAD: I didn't even ask you, Baldy!

{Homestar looks shocked. Cut to Strong Bad and Marzipan by the gazebo again.}

MARZIPAN: This is a weave.

{Cut back to Strong bad at the Compy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Sorry Ger-man. Looks like I can't practice my barber wizardry, or barbzerdry as I call it, on anybody around here. So, I guess you're on your own. I ghe

{Widen to show Strong Mad standing next to Strong Bad. Strong Mad has a box that says GLUTEMATES (BOX OF 6) very flaintly.}

STRONG MAD: MAKE IT DANCE! MAKE IT PRANCE!!!

STRONG BAD: Uh, I'll make that cardboard box dance and prance later, big guy. I'm in the middle of...

{Zoom in on Strong Mad's eye brows.}

Ah ha! Pay dirt!

{A camera flash goes off and the screen goes white. Fade back to Strong Bad at the Compy. An instant camera type photo of Strong Mad is taped to Compy. It develops as Strong Bad talks.}

Okay, now that I have Strong Mad's image... um... scanned in to the computer, I'll use my cutting art, state of the edge technology to simulate different hairstyles. On his eyebrows. I'll just get out my "LIGHT PEN" here.

{Strong Bad's hand comes up. He has a marker and starts to draw on the picture.}

First, for the Strong Mad who's out on the prowl, no woman can resist the distinguished grace of what I like to call: The "Gentleman Caller".

{Draws Gentleman like eyebrows. "Gentleman Caller" flashes on the screen.}

Or,

{Wipes picture clean. We zoom in a bit on the picture.}

Experience the lightning brows of "Jagged Metal".

{Draws lightning type eyebrows. "Jagged Metal" flashes on the screen.}

Oh, and he's definitely going to need a guitar.

{Draws a guitar. It ends up in the middle of Strong Mad's face.}

STRONG MAD: I DON'T WANT TO EAT A GUITAR!

STRONG BAD: You're not eating it... you're shredding some hot lixxs... with your teeth.

{Strong Bad makes a guitar noise as he draws a whammy bar on the guitar. He then wipes the picture clean.}

Or experience the urban flavor of: "Hammer Pants".

{He draws some funky eyebrows with a fade and adds a comic balloon pointing to Strong Mad's mouth that says "proper!". He then wipes the picture clean.}

And for the Strong Mad who's not so concerned with attracting ladies: "Big Ol' Eyebrows".

{He draws some big ol' eyebrows.}

I should probably go ahead and give him some missing teeth...

{Blackens Strong Mad's upper-right central incisor and upper-left cuspid.}

Acne...

{Draws spots on Strong Mad's face.}

One of them butt chins.

{Draws a butt chin.}

There we go. One hundred and ten percent lady-proof.

{He wipes the picture clean. He then draws a dog and a cat for eyebrows.}

"A Dog and Also a Cat Shaped Eyebrows."

{"A Dog and Also a Cat Shaped Eyebrows" flashes on the screen.}

And a couple of muskrats.

{He adds two muskrats. He then wipes the picture clean.}

And don't forget: the "Ready for Primetime".

{Draws a picture he clearly got carried away with. "Ready for Primetime" flashes on the screen.}

Which I admit I got a little carried away with.

STRONG MAD: SWEETIE CAKES! SWEETIE CAKES!!!

STRONG BAD: Sweetie cakes? What are you ta-- O-oh, yeah I guess it does look a little bit like one of them "Sweet Cuppin' Cakes" guys.

{Draws an "Eh! Steve" looking character.}

Eh! Greg.

{Wipes picture clean.}

{Strong Bad takes the picture down and starts typing.}

So that gives you a lot to choose from, Deutschman. I think you could easily apply all my eyebrow style to your {pauses} headbrow style. So good luck witchasself. I have to use my "LIGHT PEN" on napping Strong Sad. Prreeow.

{Strong Bad gets up and The Paper comes down.}

Transcript

STRONG MAD: HOORAY FOR BOX!
  • At the end, click on 'napping Strong Sad' to see how Strong Bad used the 'light pen' on Strong Sad.

Fun Facts

  • The game(s) in the floppy disk holder are "Tengen Classics." Tengen was a front for Atari, allowing Atari to make games (illegally) for the NES.
  • On the "Light Pen" it says "Fine Tip Permanent Marker".
  • The Deutschman comic book is published by Cheap as Free. The comic is a reference to superhero name.
    • Both comics have a parody of the old Spiderman head that's in the bottom corner of the old Marvel comics (except that it's Strong Bad's head instead of Spiderman's).
  • "Deutsch" is German for "German".
  • Strong Bad's "permanent" marker isn't permanent at all.
  • Here's a list of the different eyebrow styles:
    • "Gentleman Caller"
    • "Jagged Metal"
    • "Hammer Pants"
      • Hammer Pants were those pants MC Hammer used to wear and made famous.
    • "Big Ol' Eyebrows"
    • "A Dog And Also A Cat Shaped Eyebrows" (and a couple of muskrats)
      • The muskrats are a possible reference to cartoonist Don Asmussen's portrayal of George W. Bush's eyebrows in "Bad Reporter": The Politics Of Hair. In fact, the "Gentleman Caller" style looks just like Bush's muskrats.
    • "Ready For Primetime"
      • After Strong Mad talks about "Sweetycakes", Strong Bad draws Eh! Steve and says "Eh, Greg!," contrary to his usual "Eh, Steve!"
  • Strong Bad must have a pretty spiffy keyboard. He can Umlaut his "O"s really quickly. Normally you need to change the language on your keyboard or use alt commands (ö).
  • The box says "GLUTEMATES (BOX OF 6)". (it's faded)
  • A light pen is kind of like the thing that John Madden uses. You know, the "this guy went here, this other guy went WAY around here and BOOM!" thing with the yellow writing on the screen.
  • In the "napping Strong Sad" easter egg, Strong Sad is naming off Smurfs in his sleep. Smurf names mentioned by Strong Sad in his sleep:
    • Jokey Smurf
    • Brainy Smurf
    • "That Carpenter Smurf" (probably referring to Handy Smurf but forgetting his name)
  • Strong Sad goes on to say "Watch out Julian Sands!", referring to a British horror film actor.
    • In Julian Sands' film "Boxing Helena", his character chops off his girlfriend's legs and arms because he wanted to do everything for her. Later, the police sneak up on him and bash him on his head.
  • The face that Strong Bad has drawn on Strong Sad in his sleep loosely resembles "Tendafoot," the elephant he drew in crying which he claimed represented Strong Sad.
  • If Strong Bad really did have a nickel for every email he has done up through this one, he would have $5.15.
    • In fact, he does receive a quarter for each email address he gives Bubs, as per unused emails.
  • Strong Bad says he has no hair, but in theme park he has been working on the theme park as long as he's been "growing his mustache".
  • The hat drawn on Strong Sad looks like Ash's from the [[Wikipedia:Pok�mon | Pok�mon anime series]], complete with hair.
  • When Strong Bad says "prreeow," it's a reference to the sound that The Paper makes.
  • The "Light Pen" Strong Bad uses is left-handed. Many right-handed people don't realize this, but almost all pens and pencils are manufactured for right-handed use in that the text printed on them appears right-side-up when used with the right hand, but upside-down when used by the left hand. (This does not affect the way pencils or pens are used; only the orientation of the text printed on them differs.)
  • Although Strong Bad is using a left-handed marker (since the text on the marker appears right-side-up only when used with the left hand), he is evidently right-handed, since he is only ever shown writing with his right hand (or, more appropriately, right boxing glove).
  • In the top left corner of the comic easter egg, it has The Cheat in a cape and mask- another reference to "superhero name".
