This article is about the Strong Bad Email. For the short, see The Interview.

Strong Bad Email #62

Kerrek asks Strong Bad about Homsar.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Homsar, The Cheat



STRONG BAD: many emails, so little good emails.


What's up with Homsar? I know he's
weird and all, but don't you think we
deserve to know a bit more about him?
I think you should do an interview so
we can finally find out what his
deal is.


STRONG BAD: Whoa, that's a pretty cool name! {typing in a Gothic blackletter font} And then Trogdor smote the Kerrek, and all was laid to burnination. {Clears the screen, starts typing normally} My good Kerrek, you might enjoy such an encounter, but I know I can't talk to that guy for more than about 3 seconds before I start thinking that gnawing my own leg off might be a more better way to spend my time...more..more better. {clears screen, continues typing} Let me show you how it would go down with post-its attached to the top of pens.

{Strong Bad ducks his head and brings up two pens with Post-It notes attached to them, one with a crude drawing of Strong Bad, the other of Homsar}

STRONG BAD FIGURE: Alright then. For the record, please. Tell us who you are.

HOMSAR FIGURE: DaAaAaA! I'm a song from the sixties!

STRONG BAD FIGURE: That's just nonsense. Are you trying to make some sense?

HOMSAR FIGURE: AaAaA! Rightio! I think I can twice!

STRONG BAD FIGURE: Homsar, tell us about your childhood.

HOMSAR FIGURE: DaAa! I was raised by a cup of coffee.

STRONG BAD FIGURE: Interesting. So! How did you end up here?

HOMSAR FIGURE: 'Twas the pride of the peaches.

STRONG BAD FIGURE: 'Twas the pride of the peaches, huh? You got any last remarks?

HOMSAR FIGURE: DaAaA! Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk!

STRONG BAD FIGURE: Okay, interview over. Commence beating!

{Strong Bad has the Strong Bad Post-It beat the Homsar Post-It. The doorbell rings.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! That'll be the Cheat with my Thai iced tea! Come on in!

{Cut to the entryway. It is not the Cheat, but Homsar himself.}

HOMSAR: AaAaAaAaAaAaA! Hey Reggie! Is that rhinoceros around?

STRONG BAD: Um... I can only assume you're talking to me and asking about Strong Sad. He's in the basement.

HOMSAR: I'm a song from the sixties.

STRONG BAD: {salting his own leg} If you don't get down there quick, things could get real ugly around here.

{The Paper comes down. The Cheat shows up with Strong Bad's Thai iced tea but he doesn't take it. The Cheat walks away again.}

Easter Eggs

  • Once Strong Bad starts typing and the name Kerrek comes up you can click on it and bring up a Strong Sad drawing of Trogdor smiting Kerrek.
  • Click on Strong Bad's pen-postit puppets to see a few different versions - you can do this for the remainder of this one, when you see them.
    • This also works with Homsar.
  • Once you see Homsar, you can click on the light switches for some cool light effects, like in techno.
  • After The Cheat goes away (or even before he shows up) you can click on the Homsar pen puppet to bring up a funny Homsar Main Page, which is also accessible by clicking the "4" in "2004" on any main page except the Luau Main Page.
    • The original version of the Homsar main page had only the Toons and Games buttons. After it was added as an easter egg on the main pages, it was normalized to fit in (well, more or less) with the rest of the menus.

Fun Facts

  • The Kerrek appears later in Peasant's Quest.
  • The flying Strong Bad is a reference to the Bubble, an enemy from the Legend of Zelda series.
  • This marks the second time Strong Bad talks about salting and eating his foot. In island, he says, while pondering what life on a deserted island with Homestar would be like, "And at some point my foot would look like a sandwich, and i would put salt on it and try to eat it, and it'd be like, 'Ahh, it's my foot!'"
  • One of Strong Bad's Post-it alter egos is his action figure from the email action figure
  • Strong Bad's grammar mistakes are surprising, considering his criticism of others:
    • the "more better" part
    • at the beginning, he should say "so few good emails" (Though this is, perhaps, an intentional error, playing on the expectation that he was about to say "so little time.")
  • Homsar's short, squat, post-it character (click through it a few times) looks exactly like Homestar in In Search Of The Yello Dello DVD. Strong Bad even makes fun of the crude early version in the commentary!
  • "Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk" is something Shaquille O'Neal once said.
  • The Floppy Disk Container displays Rise Of The Dragon: a puzzle game for DOS, Amiga, and Sega CD, released in 1990.
  • Homsar's response to Strong Bad telling him that Strong Sad is in the basement is a reference to Bob Dylan's song, "Subterranean Homesick Blues"

DVD Version

  • To view the easter eggs, use the angle button on your DVD remote. (Except for The Cheat giving Strong Bad his Thai iced tea, which comes up automatically, and the Homsar link, which has been removed.)
