[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: Hello, everybody! This week it's time for some spring cleaning. Ready? Go!

STRONG BAD: Oh, what a good question! Let me think about how I should answer that...

STRONG BAD: {simultaneously} DELETED! Ah ha ha, that felt great. What's next?

{Strong Bad pronounces VA as "Vah"}

STRONG BAD: Ah, now this question is definitely worth my time and consideration—

STRONG BAD: {simultaneously} DELETED! Uh ho ho, this is getting good!

{Strong Bad pronounces Oregon as "Ora-gawn"}

STRONG BAD: Oh, that's a new one. No way do I get this freaking question all the time. I suppose I'll probably answer it right now—

STRONG BAD: {simultaneously} DELETED! {laughing} Oh, who's next man?

STRONG BAD: Oh, I'll totally answer this one because apparently the only thing I'm concerned with is the word crap—

STRONG BAD: {simultaneously} DELETED!! Oh, I'm on a roll!

{Instead of saying "Sue", he says and types "DELETED!".}

STRONG BAD: Ahhh! I feel so cleansed. So fresh and so clean, clean. Okay, so until next time, ain't nobody dope as me.

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Sue, who notes that last week's email was "pathetic," was likely referring to tape-leg, which is sequentially the previous Strong Bad email and is widely considered by fans to be the worst one of all time.

[edit] Trivia

  • This is another instance where Strong Bad checks multiple emails (the first time where they come from multiple fans).
  • This is the first email where the screen flashes DELETED!! when Strong Bad deletes something.
  • This is the first appearance of a "How do you type with boxing gloves on?" email, although he implies that he gets this email all the time.
  • This is the last email where The Paper reads simply, "Click here to e-mail strong bad."
  • When Strong Bad laughs after deleting each email, the reflection of his face on his computer moves, but his actual head doesn't. However, ignoring the facial movements, the reflection of the head and the actual head are in fact synced.

[edit] Remarks

  • The page title reads "Mandy 400!!" instead of "Tandy 400!!!" in this email.

[edit] Inside References

  • Strong Bad's reaction to Chad's going overboard with the word "crap" is the first sign of his displeasure with Crapfully Yours-style signatures.

[edit] Real-World References

  • The last few lines are from a song by OutKast called, "So Fresh, So Clean"; that's why Strong Bad said "clean" twice. The song's chorus goes Ain't nobody dope as me, I'm dressed so fresh so clean (so fresh and so clean, clean).
