[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: {muttering} Ow-mnow, mnow, mnow... {louder} Mow-mnow, mnow, mnow... {stops muttering}

STRONG BAD: Nee-co-las. {typing} They said my legs were made of tape?! WHAT?? I mean, do I look like some kinda tape-leg? I can guarantee you, man, I am not a tape-leg.

{Strong Bad stops typing and lifts up his leg, where a piece of masking tape is stuck on the bottom of his shoe.}

STRONG BAD: I mean, look at this leg. Look... look at it there... Oh wait a minute, what's that on- OH, there's a little piece of tape on my shoe!

{Strong Bad removes the tape, and lowers his leg.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} That's what they were probably talking about. Yeah. You probably misunderstood them, man. No, they probably said I had tape on my leg or my shoe and you thought they said that my leg was made of tape. My leg is not made of tape. Pfffph! I must've just stepped on an innocent piece of tape...tape. {stops typing} All right, so until next week, send me some good ones. You know, some good ones.

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first email in which Strong Bad does not say the word "email" in his opening.
  • In the previous email, stand-up, Lil' Strong Bad was seen with fleshed legs when his pants fell.
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Tape-Leg 1, not to be confused with Tape-Leg 2."

[edit] Remarks

  • Not only can Strong Bad type with boxing gloves on, but he can do so with one hand. He types while he is ripping the tape off.
  • The audio quality changes for the line "Pfffph! I must've just stepped on an innocent piece of tape...tape." and then changes back for the rest of the email.

[edit] Goofs

  • When Strong Bad is holding up his arm with the tape, his arm cannot be seen in the computer's reflection.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • An email which endures much controversy over its quality, "tape-leg" became a running gag referred to in other emails and toons on the site.
  • Strong Bad asks for some good emails in the next week. The following week, Strong Bad deletes 5 bad emails, and there is no evidence that he ever got any good ones.
