[edit] Transcript

{The scene starts out on a screen that resembles the "Address Not Found" screen of Mozilla Firefox 3. Strong Sad appears from the bottom of the frame, wearing his Deleteheads hat.}

STRONG SAD: {wags his finger} Oh, no you don't! The Deleteheads started—

{The scene shifts to the right, revealing Strong Mad and The Cheat in their Deleteheads hats standing next to a tent and an ice chest.}

STRONG SAD: —camping out for sbemail 200 weeks ago! {points with his thumb over his shoulder} Back of the line!

{The scene shifts further right, revealing that they are the only ones there. A tumbleweed rolls behind them.}

STRONG SAD: {off-screen} But there's really no one else here yet, so {reappears from the bottom of the frame} you can get right behind us. We're gonna play "Name That Inconsistency" later on if you want to join us.

{Strong Sad gets right in the viewer's face, causing Strong Mad and The Cheat to jump.}

STRONG SAD: {angrily} Don't even think about eating any of our Sun Chips! I packed those special!

{The scene shifts back to its original position.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • At the time of its release, this toon was located at the URL "sbemail200.html" for viewers who tried to access the 200th Strong Bad Email early through the URL, following the format of most previous emails.

[edit] Trivia

  • The fake page load error reads:
Address Not Found

The browser could not find the host server for the provided address.
  • Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? Did you grandma?
  • Are you certain this domain name exists? Its registration may have expired.
  • Are you unable to browse other sites? Check your network connection, DNS
    server settings, and self before you riggidy-wreck yourself.
  • Is your computer protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings
    can interfere with Web browsing. Quit touching my stuff!

[edit] Remarks

  • Homsar and the Cinder Block are not with the rest of the Deleteheads.
  • This is the first fake error page to use the Firefox error page. Previous ones have used the Internet Explorer 6 error page.
  • This toon, similar to Sbemail 100 fakeout, used the URL "sbemail200.html" on the Flash website, while the real 200th email had an irregular URL ("sbemailtwohundred.html") like flashback's.
    • This is no longer the case as of the post-Flash site update, with email thunder now occupying the numerical URL for consistency. As a result, this toon is now located at the "sbemail200" URL, without the ".html".
  • Strong Sad claims to have been camping out for weeks, but on the Monday before this toon could be found, the short Place ya Bets! had them betting on sbemail 200 in their normal meeting place.
  • "Name That Inconsistency" would have plenty of material to draw from.
  • This toon had no officially listed title until the post-Flash site update, when the page title listed the toon's name as "Sbemail 200 Fakeout".
