STRONG BAD: {singing} Away you dribble down the court with an email, you leave your dreams at the top of the keeey. {brings up the email}

{Strong Bad says "Another freakin' guy named Daniel" instead of "Daniel" and "not safe, in Canada" instead of "N.S. CANADA".}

STRONG BAD: Oh, Thanks for the tip, Daniel. I'll lay low here in the states for a while until things cool off. {clears screen}

STRONG BAD: Daniel, trading cards are the biggest waste of not a video game on the planet! In fact, I thought trading cards were outlawed the day they invented good graphics. As for the "gum" that comes with them, I'm pretty sure they replaced that with a pink piece of balsa wood back in the ealry 80's and nobody ever noticed. So, no, I shouldn't have trading cards. But most of the other idiots around here have engaged in some form of trading cardery. Let's rag on them, shall we?
