[edit] Transcript

{Pom Pom and Strong Bad are standing next to The Stick.}

STRONG BAD: So I was like, {begins to "shake it" mockingly} "Well, you think you're so hot, but me hot, me hot!"

POM POM: {bubbles, as if laughing}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, that's a pretty good one, huh? Oh crap, I should probably check my email. Hey, let me see your Pom Pilot!

{Pom Pom tosses his Pom Pilot to Strong Bad, with four buttons, Internet, Email, Solitaire, and The Ladies.}

STRONG BAD: {singing as he uses the stylus to bring up the email} Checkin' my email... Here at the stick... That's pretty cool... {clicks Email}

STRONG BAD: Uh, not really, man.

{He holds his hand straight to the front.}

STRONG BAD: I'm flippin' you off right now. Of course there's other ways to give somebody the finger.

{He puts his hand behind him.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, check it out: behind the back.

{He waves his hand in circles.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, around the world. And my personal favorite.

{He holds both of his arms up to the side.}

STRONG BAD: Psssshhh! The Double Deuce! What's your favorite, Pom Pom?

{Pom Pom holds one of his hands up.}

STRONG BAD: Ah, Pom Pom likes the Single Deuce.

{Pom Pom nods. Homestar walks on screen.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, Homestar!

{He flips his hand to Homestar.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, right back atcha, Strong Bad!

{Homestar walks away.}

STRONG BAD: He just gave me the bird!

POM POM: {bubbles, as if laughing}

STRONG BAD: That wasn't funny, man! That'll hurt a guy's feelings. {Brooding} Okay, so until next week, send me your email. I will more than likely flip you off.

{The Paper comes down. After a few seconds, Pom Pom briefly peeks his head out from under it and then straightens back up.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first instance of a character interacting with The Paper.
  • This is the only email set completely outside.
  • This is the first email Strong Bad doesn't answer on his own computer.
  • In the email that Strong Bad received, the "i" inside the word "with" is lowercase.
  • This is Pom Pom's first appearance in a Strong Bad email.
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Strong Bad checks his email at the stick and shares his award-winning flip-offery."

[edit] Remarks

  • Apparently, Pom Pom has Strong Bad's email username and password saved on to his Pom Pilot. Strong Bad didn't even have to log in.
  • The page title is Tandy 400!!!, even though Strong Bad is never at his computer in this email.

[edit] Goofs

  • Strong Bad's right eye (on the viewer's left) is smaller than the other, even when he is facing the viewer, and it has the "gleam" in the wrong spot.
  • Right before Strong Bad gives the Double Deuce, he sets down the Pom Pilot at his feet. Then, when Homestar Runner walks by, the Pom Pilot is nowhere to be seen.
  • Pom Pom and The Stick have a shadow, but Strong Bad doesn't.
  • When Strong Bad gets "flipped off" by Homestar and is saddened, his arms are behind him rather than on his side.

[edit] Inside References

  • Strong Bad receives another email signed with the word crapfully.
  • When Homestar flips Strong Bad the bird, it highlights his lack of visible arms.

[edit] Glitches

  • At the very start of the email, a brief snippet of the music from the Easter egg in little animal (the previous email) plays.
