STRONG BAD: {singing} Email, check it, come on, come on, ya'll. Email check it, come on, come on, yall.

subject: Overdue rampage
Dear Ong-stray ad-bay,
I thinks it's been entirely too long since you went on a
rampage.
Sincerely Peter,

STRONG BAD: {after reading} ...comma. {typing} Well, Epressing-day Erd-nay, I thinks it's been entirely to long since you consulted your M.L.A. handbook! {clears screen, returns typing} Eh, so maybe it has been a while since my last rampage. But that doesn't mean I'm goin' soft or nothin'. I've just grown more selective of the types of rampages on which I go. Like the other freakin' day: me and Strong Mad went on a Reading Rampage.

{Strong Mad and Strong Bad are seen on The Couch with many books stacked around them. Strong Mad is holding a waffle that reads "BUG" in syrup, and Strong Bad reads "Investing for Jerks". The waffle drips syrup onto the floor.}

STRONG BAD: Man, this book really speaks to me. In like, several different languages, even.

STRONG MAD: THIS BOOK IS TOO LONG!

{Back at the computer, Strong Bad keeps typing.}

STRONG BAD: See? It's not all rampage-stompin'-boy style rampages. The pie's the limit as far as rampages are concerned. Why, ye could go on a regal rampage.

{Strong Bad appears in The King of Town's Castle, wearing a blanket around his neck, holding a staff and wearing The King of Town's crown. The crownless King of Town stands nearby.}

STRONG BAD: {Whacking king with cane} I bequeath thee! Bequeath thee! Bequeath thee!

KING OF TOWN: {While getting whacked} Ow! Ow! Ow! One more!

STRONG BAD: {raising cane} Ye hath quivered me tuppence!

KING OF TOWN: Oops, you lost me!

{Strong Bad whacks King with cane 3 more times.}

KING OF TOWN: {While getting whacked} OW! OW! OW!

{Incomplete}
