[edit] New Name?

Since the main article was tagged with possibly needing a new commando name, I suggest Email Intros Reused. Because that's what the article covers, Strong Bad singing an intro and the intro coming up again in the same email later. — Ngamer01 16:15, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Well, I was the one who made this link, and I didnt realize the link would be the title (cut me some slack, Im new here). I agree the Related to the Email isnt a very good title, and I think Ngamer01s idea is good. I also suggest Intros Used Later On. BanditoDorito

This is a frusterating article as, despite my best efforts, I have yet to come up with a decent name, nor do I think those suggested describe the article particularly well. The most literal name would be "Email Intros Referenced Within The Email, but that's a bit excessive.--Jellote wuz here 04:08, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

"References to Email Intros"? "Email Intro References"? That's all I can think umf tonight. HweEloR.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:55, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
Now that I think about it, "Relevant Email Intros" seems like the best choice. HweEloR.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:42, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
What about "Apparent Precognition"?--JayWTBF 10:31, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
Given that the current title was made such by mistake, and has remained so for almost a decade, I think it's time we decided a title. I still support "Relevant Email Intros". Any opposed? HweEloR.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 19:46, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

[edit] Honorable Mentions

Not sure if these are close enough to count, so I'll jot them down here in case.

  • from work - The intro song is about checking an email quietly, which Strong Bad does because he is at work.
  • what i want - The email is about Decemberween gifts, and the intro song is the intro of Jingle Bells as played by Keyboard Strong Bad.
  • retirement a and b - The songs point out obvious technical flaws in Strong Bad's old computers, which he must work around to check his email both times.
  • modeling - Strong Bad denies that the audience can handle his style, and then proceeds to show off his style by modeling.
  • different town - The email features a song by They Might Be Giants, and the intro song references one of their other songs.
  • the bet - Taken verbatim from the wiki page: "The humor in the phrase 'Big money, big money' lies in the fact that this phrase is often used in casinos or game shows, and the email is about a bet."
  • 2 emails - Strong Bad claims that email brings "a world of hurt". Both emails result in disappointment. The first sender asks for 2 emails, and Strong Bad delivers - but counts that email as one of them, effectively nullifying the request. At the end of the toon, Strong Bad and his guests are all disappointed due to an absence of "the ladies".
