    "The Teal Screen Of Near-Death" = LOL.

    I was hoping this actually WAS a two-parter, but apparently they just didn't finish it in time and put it up half-complete. It'll appear in its entirety tomorrow I'm guessing. I'm sure HR Wiki will rip and preserve the half-version.

    So they were the Lappy-nappers? That is just weird! Never thought Lappy-napping would be a legitimate method of getting into retirement.

    I wondered how Strong Bad could answer an email on his shot'd compy but, dang, they had to make THAT a cliffhanger! Is that going to be a trend in Homestar toons from now on or is it just a running gag that won't last long?

    I'm sure it's just a running gag after the "cliffhangers" email. After Lappy is returned (presumably) things should be back to normal. The thing is though I wonder what will happen tommorow. From the close-up on Compy I don't think he's too happy about what happened to Tandy and probably dosen't want to suffer the fate of being ultimatley deleted like that. But I guess we'll see on that tommorow.

    I thought this was very funny, from the Fluffy Puff Marshmellows "who took Lappy" contest, Strongbad's depressment being potato chips, trying to get to the roof, the kidnappers being Strongbad's Old computers Compy and Tandy, the paper translating the computers, and Tandy's last email being the ultimate Deletion. I didn't think there were any easter eggs (even though there were some apparently) but hey even if there weren't this is a special two parter so I guess there wouldn't even need to be.

    I was shocked by who the lappynappers were. It makes total sense too. A real turning point for SBmails. Both of these were really funny too. A++++...

    I think the second was lame and the only reason it was made was to resolve the cliffhanger.
