STRONG BAD: {singing} I got an email in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt. {stops singing} Again with the

{reading email}

{Strong Bad reads the name as "B. Ryan Holmes, certified arborist")

STRONG BAD: {typing and speaking like a robot while bobbing his head sporadically}Good question, Brian. I am going to answer this email like a robot. Don't you think this is a great idea? {normal voice} Yeah, sorry, me neither. OK, other days o' the week. Let's see...

{A calendar appears with a heading "A Month" and weeks starting on Monday. On Monday is written "checka my e-mail.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover}On Tuesdays, I check my snail mail.

{"checka my snail mail" gets written in on Tuesday. Cut to Strong Bad at a mailbox that reads "sb_snailmail.exe"}

STRONG BAD: {singing} I got a snail mail in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt.

{He opens his letter and reads it.}

Dear Mr. Bad,
This constitutes your final warning.
Please remit payment of three(3)
dollars and sixty-two(62) cents or
you will be turned over to a "cut off
your toes" -style collections agency.

Bubs' Concession Stand

STRONG BAD: {speaking sarcastically} Oh no, final warning. Is there nothing I can do to dissuade you? Like maybe give you a ride in my BMW?!? {Strong Bad pulls out the BMW lighter and burns the paper, laughing. He then looks around.}WA HA HA HA! Um... Where's my house?

{Cut back to the calendar.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Then to better help folks over the hump, on Wednesdays I give free motivational lectures.

{"give lecture" is written in on Wednesday. Cut to the chalkboard with Coach Z and Strong Mad listening to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: You gots to look inside yourself! Positate the negative. When life throws pies at you, you make yourself a tall, cool glass of piemonade.

COACH Z: I'm a new man!

STRONG MAD: I'M THE HUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

{Cut back to the calendar.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Due to a prior arrest, Thursdays are community service days, so me and the old Cheatasaurus head down to Strong Badia and give the place a firm scrubbin'.

{"community service" gets written in for Thursday. Cut to Strong Badia, where Strong Bad is vacuuming the dirt and The Cheat is washing the Tire.}

STRONG BAD: You know what I always say, The Cheat. Stay smart, vacuum...dirt.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises, sounds like "And wash up the tire!"}

STRONG BAD: Don't forget to wash where the sun don't shine.

{Cut back to the calendar.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Then there's Business Casual Fridays, or as we say around the office, Biz Cas Fri. {"biz cas fri" appears on the Friday box.} You know, because we have to abrev. everything.

{Cut to the office.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That's the day we all wear the free polo shirts we got from various software companies.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, man. Did you play Online Gaming last night? No, yeah, no? I did. I got so many frags.

{Cut back to the calendar.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} On Saturday I certainly don't wake up at 6 A.M., put on a Speedo, and go to swim practice. {"NOT swim practice" gets written in the Saturday box.} No, no, definitely not Speedo. But I do attend: {A flyer for Battle Axe Lessons appears onscreen, "NOT swim practice" is replaced by "BATTLE AXE LESSONS!" in the Saturday box.} BATTLE AXE LESSONS AT THE REC CENTER, with my teacher Dolph Hauldhagen, The Instruc-TOR! And of course, Sunday is the OTHER day I check my email, for our Eastern European viewers across the pond.

{"checka my eastern european emails" gets written in for Sunday. Cut to Strong Bad sitting at a gray computer with the word "BLOCK" in the bottom-left corner.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} I got a Polish e-mail in my pocket, and I think it's starting to melt.

{reading, translator speaks over Strong Bad in Polish: Silne Złe: Proszę rozwiązywać sznurowadło z tyłu głowy. Janusz, Polska}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Untie my shoelace, eh Janus? Your
mother is the speed limit.
Your aspirin,
Strong Bad

{Translator continues: Rozwiązywać sznurowadło, eh Janek? Twoja matka jest ograniczenie prędkości. Z aspiryną, Silne Złe}

{Cut back to Compy 386.}

STRONG BAD: That's pretty much my week. Now time for a refreshing glass of piemonade, or as we say around the office, p-nade.

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

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "brian holmes CA" after Strong Bad says "Certified Arborist" to see B. Ryan Holmes's business card.
    • The card reads: "B. Ryan Holmes, Certified Arborist. Phone:555-XYLM Mobile:coming soon" It has pictures of green trees and says "I think it has to do with trees!" in cursive on the bottom.
  • At the end, click on "my week" to see Strong Sad waking Strong Bad up for swim practice.
{cut to the couch. Strong Bad is sleeping on it, as usual. Strong Sad walks in wearing a pair of swimming goggles and a swimming cap}
STRONG SAD: Strong Bad...
STRONG BAD: Dangit, chrona trigga!
STRONG SAD: Strong Bad, wake up!
STRONG BAD: Chrona trigga!
STRONG SAD: We're going to be late for swim practice!
STRONG BAD: Chrhn—Chrono Trigger!

STRONG SAD: I've got your swim trunks.
STRONG BAD: Magus, I'm gonn... I'll kill you.
  • Also at the end click on "piemonade," to see an advertisement for Piemonade.

Fun Facts


  • On biz cas fri, Homestar Runner wears a shirt labelled 'Diskettes Etc.', while Strong Bad's has 'Micro Palace'.
  • The Battle Axe flyer reads:

Come join
Dolph Hauldhagen
and learn professional
techniques that will
boost your confidence
and deadlines.

Community Rec Center     "The Instruc-TOR"
Sat. 6am-9am             Dolph Hauldhagen


  • Brian Holmes and 'Holmes' (from huttah!) are both from California.
  • Dolph Hauldhagen is just Matt with a viking helmet, nothing else.


  • The calendar starts on Monday, as per some European countries. North American calendars usually start on Sunday.
  • Strong Bad's advice to "make Piemonade" is a reference to the saying "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
  • While talking about online gaming, Homestar Runner says, "I got so many frags". It seems he's been playing numerous first-person shooters, in which a "frag" is a kill.
  • It is interesting that Strong Bad helps people over the hump on Wednesdays, as some people refer to Wednesday as "Hump Day" since it is in the middle of the week.


  • When Homestar says "so many frags" and is looking to the left, his torso is flipped, and consequently the buttons on his collar appear on the wrong side and "Diskettes Etc." appears backwards for a split second.
  • In the "my week" Easter Egg, Strong Sad enters the basement empty handed, yet he somehow produces Strong Bad's swimming trunks from behind the couch.

Inside References

  • This is another instance of Strong Bad's couch mumbling.
  • The Office where "biz cas fri" takes place is the same as in dullard and the Senor Mortgage short, and the conversation is very reminiscient of that from dullard.
  • When Strong Bad mentions having to do community service, it is likely a reference to the Strong Bad Is In Jail Cartoon.
  • You can check out the ol' "Cheatasaurus" in one of the popcorn easter eggs in Labor Dabor.

Real-World References

  • When Strong Sad is waking up Strong Bad for swim practice, he mumbles various things, ranging from "I'll kill you" to the name of the classic SNES RPG, Chrono Trigger. The "I'll kill you" in the swim practice Easter egg might be directed at Magus, a villain/party member in the game. (Also see Inside References.)
    • Also notable is that Magus's true name is Janus, the same as Strong Bad's Polish email author.
  • The name of his other computer, "Block," is a reference to the Soviet Bloc—the group of Eastern European nations which were under communist government.
  • The text on the battle axe lesson flyer which instructs you to bring your own axe and exercise mat is in the same font as Iron Maiden's name almost always appears. One of their first ever songs, "Invasion", released only on a four track album of which 5000 copies were made, was about Viking invaders.
  • Strong Bad's imitation of a robot seems to be a reference to Harry in the documentary "Spellbound," a spelling bee contestant who spontaneously replies to a question from the interviewer in a robotic voice, and finishes off by saying "I-am-a-musical-robot. Do-I-sound-like-a-musical-robot?"
  • "Stay smart, vacuum...dirt" may be based on "Be Smart! Don't Start!", a motto used in a series of '80s PSAs trying to discourage minors from drinking alcohol.
  • The phone number for Brian Holmes, Certified Arborist (555-XYLM), is a reference to xylem, the major water transporting tissue of a tree.
