[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: Oh! Man! Email! Ugh!

{Strong Bad reads "would" as "could"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Look fratty, I'm not comin' to your party. But I do have a pretty good idea for the theme. I think you guys should throw a "FRAT PARTY." {stops typing} Yeah. {typing} And you could all come in baseball hats from the college that you go to. And khaki pants with a tucked-in t-shirt from the party that you threw last month. And at some point get the guy with kinda long hair to whip out his acoustic guitar and play everybody some white blues. {clears screen} And then you could get a couple of kegs of cheap cold ones and invite a buncha skinny blonde girls... Woah. {stops typing} This party's sounding pretty good, actually. {typing} Count me in, bra. {stops typing} So I guess I'm goin' to this frat party. That's pretty hilarious. Well, see ya next week.

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

One, two, three, four
She's spinning me around in circles again
Oh, that skinny blonde girl
Something about the ages
I failed college algebra again
That skinny blonde girl
And the circles and the ages and the ages

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • After the Easter egg song has played, two download links appear. However, these links no longer work. This is probably because the song is now featured on the Downloads Page.
  • This is the last email in which Strong Bad never leaves his chair and the camera angle never changes.
  • This is the shortest Compy email, without factoring in Easter eggs.
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Strong Bad helps so college students with their upcoming party."

[edit] Remarks

  • The tape on Strong Bad's song tape doesn't move or rotate, as it would on regular tapes.
  • When Strong Bad says 'comin' he neglects to put an apostrophe after it to contract the word.
  • After realizing that he would like to attend the party he just described, Strong Bad misspells "Whoa" as "Woah".

[edit] Glitches

  • The T-shirt Easter egg is clickable before Strong Bad even types it.
  • The cassette tape Easter egg cannot be closed; clicking on the tape replays the song instead.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Official college-party T-shirts (especially for fraternity- or sorority-sponsored events) are notorious for unauthorized use of copyrighted characters in their design, such as Calvin from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes.

[edit] DVD Version

  • The version of Circles in this email seems to have been passed through a high-pass filter to make it sound more lo-fi and scratchy.
  • The demo tape song can be listened to by clicking the hidden Strong Bad logo on the bottom right of the Compy screen.
  • All of the other eggs in the email can still be viewed using the angle button on the DVD remote.
