    Easter Egg: Click on the cover of the book to get a close up

    I really liked this one, a lot of references to Homestar Runner's past as well as an orgin story for the cheat! A worthy hunderenth email.

    Mind posting a link, when I go to the site it has #99 as the latest e-mail and when I type in the web adress the 100th e-mail would have Strongbad just comes on telling me to wait and keep my pants on.

    Thank ye Mr. Speedy.

    Anyway the flashback was cute, if not a little odd. I think #99 was better but still this was pretty funny and gave some good back story.

    This was easily my favorite of all the e-mails. It gives proper backstory and shows a good ending to the series of E-mails (Oh come on people you can see it in his eyes :() However Im so sad to finally have to let it go. I really hope I'm wrong but it looks like the Strong Bad E-mails are....well......

    DALEETED!

    Again I still hope I'm wrong but the best episode yet :(

    Not the funniest e-mail ever, but I think that works -- it had a very good feel for either a special or a finale. There was more "big" stuff than actual funny stuff, like the widescreen (which was also funny) and saying "e-mail" 100 times. And the easter eggs were great.

    BTW, I want this to be front page ToonZone news.

    Well, now I feel all nostalgic.

    A great tribute worthy of the 100th e-mail. All the references to the site's past were great (SB's old computer, children's book, the voices, the music)... the congratulations at the end were all good too. The widescreen bit suprised me - I was not expecting the screen to move like that, heh. Cool effect though.

    Kudos to the Brothers Chaps. Keep up the good work.

    If that were truly the last one, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO "CLICK HERE TO EMAIL STRONG BAD" PAPER.

    There, I said it.

    Not as spectacular as #99, but quite good nonetheless. Best moments: The throwback to an earlier e-mail ("How do you type with boxing gloves on?"), the widescreen, Strong Bad saying "e-mail" 100 times, and the live action congrats at the end (who were those guys?)

    That is Limozeen, a band that performs on the Strong Bad Sings album that is available at the site's store.

    they did say who they were:
    "We're the band limozeen!"
    "I think it already says that on the screen"

    Good stuff. The Widescreen joke was among the funniest of the bunch.

    I gotta say this had the funniest e-mail intro ever. Plus, you gotta love how NH means "New Hamsters."

    The only things missing from the e-mail were Trogdor, Stinko Man 20X6 and the Thnikkaman.

    I suppose I should mention the other Easter Eggs that no one else has mentioned yet, especially since they're my favorite eggs of the bunch: click on each of the two fireworks (or the spots that the fireworks explode in) at the end after the glass of water appears.

    Does anyone else think the guy all the way on the left is the Chapman brother who does the voices? Just listen to him; he could so turn into Homestar or Strong Bad.

    Actually, that's just the easter eggs from the Congratulations message that you're clicking on. The LIMOZEEN logo happens to be right on top of it.

    I was thinking the same thing.
