[edit] Transcript

{Start of the email at the monitor; Strong Bad is absent. The mechanical humming of the Compy 386 can be heard faintly. Footsteps can be heard, getting faster as they approach, and Strong Bad runs on-screen. He notices the computer and screeches to a halt.}

STRONG BAD: Oh! The email!

{He sits at the computer}

STRONG BAD: Uh, look guys. I don't have a lotta time. I'm kind of in the middle of something and I really can't explain. I'll try and do an email {he types strongbad_email.exe} real quick-a-like.

{email pops up}

{reading fast}

STRONG BAD: Uhh, let's see... {typing} Strong Bad with the ladies —Current Status: They all still want me. {stops typing} Y'know, what can I say? I'm a chick magnet. A babe conductor. A... logarithm... for the ladies.

COACH Z: {offscreen} Hey, Strong Bad!

BUBS: {offscreen} Hey, Strong Bad!

STRONG BAD: Oop, gotta go!

{He runs off. Coach Z and Bubs walk in. Their heads have been swapped, and thus are now Coach B and Zubs.} [1]

COACH B: Well... he's not here.

ZUBS: Well, you better find him quick! This crap ain't funny!

COACH B: I'd be hard-pressed to do anything quick in this train-wreck! What've ya been eatin', concrete?

{Coach B walks off.}

ZUBS: Least I don't have no clown feet! I can hardly walk in these things! {Cut to his feet. Shortly after, he walks off} Ronald McDonald, grumble-mumble...

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Footnote

  1. For the purpose of this transcript and throughout the page, it is assumed that Coach B has Coach Z's head and voice, and Zubs has Bubs's head and voice. It has never been revealed whether this is true, or if the opposite is true.

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • At the end, click on the disk on the table. The Compy will create a message that says:

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • A logarithm is a mathematical term that is the inverse of raising a number to a power.

[edit] Trivia

  • The label on the disk in the floppy disk container reads "loom disk 1 of 24".
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Strong Bad is apparently able to switch people's heads in this oft-forgotten sbemail."

[edit] Remarks

  • A disk drive can be heard in the Easter egg, but the Compy has no disk drive to speak of.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Zubs mumbles the name of Ronald McDonald, the clown mascot of the McDonald's fast-food restaurant chain, known for wearing large red clown shoes.
  • This appears to be inspired by such classic Looney Tunes cartoons as Duck Amuck, which features the main characters with the wrong body parts

[edit] YouTube Version

  • The Easter egg plays automatically.
