Strong Bad Email #159a - Retirement A

YES. i dare say this is comparable to virus.

The new e-mail is part of retirement. Mirror of this segment and more information on the Homestar Runner Wiki

AND JUST WALK AWAY, MOTHER!


Easter Eggs:

1. See the entry on the combined e-mail.

Other Otherness:

1. Oh lord. I wasn’t really ready for Marshie tonight. He makes even less sense than ever this time, but hilarious nonetheless.

2. It’s surprising how many flavour you can give to potato chips. A lot of potato snacks in the UK has begun their “specialty” line, where they imitate flavours of gourmet dishes. It’s a piece of fried potato for crying out loud (having said that, they are quite yummy, but still).
I especially like the special “limited” editions (which ends up staying half of the time). Share with us the best and worst “limited” potato snacks in your experience. My best is the pizza flavoured Pringles, worst is the mix n match Walkers for Comic Relief, Cheese & Pickle flavour.

3. When SB mentioned Hushpuppies, I thought of slushies. I thought that popular slushie company was called Hush Puppies at first, then I remembered they’re called Slush Puppie and I was thinking of the suede shoes company Hush Puppies. I haven’t tried the fried cornbread nicknamed Hushpuppies myself but they don’t sound that appetizing on first impression. A quick trip to wikipedia taught me that the American company The Icee bought the Slush Puppie states division. ECONOMY, EH?
Well, here’s what Hushpuppies looked like:
vs.
vs.



4. “Oh, Child”? Would someone please please explain this to me? I thought it was a pop culture reference that missed me, but I genuinely looked around and nothing returned. It’s not just a silliness I didn’t find as hilarious as the wiki’s forum found it, is it?

5. I thought we were promised the end of BSoD with Windows XP? Oh sorry excuse me I’m not sure where that came from. I’m gonna go lie down soon because obviously I’m going delirious.

5. Hmmm, the magnet isn’t actually tied on a string. There’s a ribbon shape on top of it, but no string around it to hold it up. I’m surprised the wiki’s not all up on it.


6. We have a new game, Mastertype, the wiki didn’t write about it though. What’s with the wiki this time?


7. Seriously, libation seems a lot less exotic now that it’s the Ancient Greeks who did it first ('cording to wikipedia). I thought it was an Asian thing. Damn.
Oh well, who wanna waste perfectly good liquor, anyway?

8. ‘Kay, I’m done. See you tomorrow. Sliiiiiinnnk.
