##  Transcript

STRONG BAD: {singing, types "run Strongbad's__email"} Checkin' my email, checkin' my email, checkin'-checkin'-checkin'-checkin' my email.

STRONG BAD: Oh, come on Tyler! Don't you remember your algebra, man? It's called the {typing} Transitive Butt Property. {stops typing} And it clearly states that the stupidity of somebody's butt is greater than or equal to the stupidity of that person's head.

{He types "stupid (butt) ≥ stupid (head)," then clears the screen to bring up Bad Graphics Homestar.}

STRONG BAD: So, take our friend Homestar Runner for instance. {laughing} Look at his stupid head! {labels Homestar's head "stupid (head)"} Look at how stupid his head is. {stops laughing} Okay, so you can easily infer from this that because he has such a stupid head, that easily his butt is going to be at least as stupid {labels Homestar's butt as "stupid (butt)"} if not stupider. {relabels butt as "stupid/stupider (butt)"} So there you have it. Okay, so until next time, on a scale from one to awesome, I'm super great.

{The Paper comes down}

##  Fun Facts

### Trivia

• This is the first Strong Bad Email to have capital letters in the title.
• This is the first Strong Bad Email to mention Homestar.
• This is the first instance of Strong Bad receiving an email signed "Crapfully Yours".
• The paper at the end is shorter in length than in the first two Strong Bad Emails (likely to prevent covering up the image of Homestar Runner).
• This is the first email to show something on Strong Bad's computer other than text.
• This email marks the first appearance of Strong Bad's bogus mathematical theorems.

### Remarks

• Normally, transitivity principles are used to infer a relation between two variables based on their relations to a third variable. For example, transitivity of "is greater than or equal to" implies that if $a\geq b$ and $b\geq c$, then $a\geq c$.

### Goofs

• For a split second when Strong Bad's text is cleared and Bad Graphics Homestar Runner appears, the text appears outside of the computer screen.
