[edit] Boring Email!

Guys, I gotta level with ya. This is probably...the most boring email rap I have ever heard. No cool rhymes, songs, headbanging, or even silly ditty. Nothin' but "I am going to check my email." Probably on purpose. But I wanted to point it out. --Bellatrix 21:58, 1 Dec 2004 (MST)

This is also the only case where Strong Bad has no unique email opening line.

[edit] Bell vs. Belle

It says in da transcript that Homestar says "I'm a belle", but I always thought that he was saying "I'm a BELL". You know, cuz he's too dumb to know what the term belle of the ball means, so he just thought Strong Bad was talkin' 'bout a bell as in "ding dong". Any thoughts? -I don't feel like typing my name I mean oh wait typing this took longer anyway, bye.

Yeah, uh, random conjecture is bad. There's no reason whatsoever to believe that Homestar is saying "bell" over "belle" - none - so we should keep it consistent with what Strong Bad CLEARLY said. --Jay 18:00, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Since there aren't any captions to go by, I would say there isn't much reason to believe Homestar said "bell" instead of "belle," but I thought that was the joke. I think it's worth debating (on the off chance anyone still visits this talk page besides me). --~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 17:49, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Above all, the homestarrunner website intends to be funny. Homestar saying "I'm a belle" has no significance and is not funny. Homestar saying "I'm a bell" is much more fitting with both his character and the Chapmans' sense of humor. I'm changing it until it's adressed again. -anonymous contributor
I think it's "Bell" also. — Defender1031*Talk 18:12, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
The filename is hs_imabelle.wav. I think that's enüff prüf to go with "belle" and remove the footnote. Besides, I've always thought "I'm a belle" is funny. — It's dot com 17:39, 5 October 2009 (UTC)
Agree with dotcom. I'm tempted to go ahead and change it. - 21:54, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Costume or Not?

It lists this as a costume for Homestar, but Strong Bad says that the final step is to "Get your mom to make you a Strong Bad costume", so should that be removed from the Other Costumes page?

[edit] Weird!

The Email Song in this email shoulda been used for the first email.

[edit] Twine?

Most of the costume made some sense, but the only part I didn't get was the twine. Can anyway make any sort of sense from that? — Scalawag 22:19, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Don't you get it? You have to ask your mom to make you a Strong Bad costume after that part! Star Guy T/C 21:45, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Uh...more frames...?

I was just going through all the sbemails in order (so the "story" will be clearer/because there haven't been any updates for almost 2 weeks now) with the All-in-One H*R Greasemonkey script. When the email was over, I noticed the frame count said "910/916" so I checked here to see if that was an Easter egg. I didn't find anything, so I just checked it out for myself. Turns out the last 6 frames are just white. They're completely inaccessible except by use of a seek bar. Has anyone else found this as well? --Gawaxay 22:12, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Inspiration for Tape-Leg

According to a YouTube commenter, this email served as the inspiration for the infamous Tape-Leg: 6pu1pmbbooc31.jpg
