* TakeThatAudience:TakeThatAudience: Strong Bad reacts to Jamie saying he's "getting bored" of the "NO LOAFING" sign and the blue wall paint by mocking him:
-->'''Strong Bad:''' That's so funny that you should say that (''mumbles the name "Jamie"''), because I was just thinking how bored I am with your butt, and your face, and your snotty nose!


Strong Bad considers redesigning the "No Loafing" sign and painting his computer room.

Strong Bad considers redesigning clears the "No Loafing" "LELLOWTAPE" off the old Lappy and gets an email from "Hom-ee-ay Eric-SON" who announces he's grown a bit bored with the decor of the computer room, with its "NO LOAFING" sign and painting blue paint, to which Strong Bad retorts "I was just thinking how bored I am with your butt, and your face, and your snotty nose!"
->'''Strong Bad:''' I guess the No Loafing sign could take a cue from the fast-food, soft drink, and bad sports team industries and combat sluggish sales and decades of losing with a slick logo redesign.

Strong Bad goes over a quick process to spruce up any logo:
#Squish it, skew it, and turn it all around!
#Make it look fast and slick, like "Flo-Jo in a tuxedo".
#Switch up the colors in a rousing game of "Color Wheel Roulette" (which unfortunately leaves the "NO LOAFING!" sign colored in drab shades of brown, green, and yellow).
#Make it all glossy, like it was "dipped in molten Plexiglass".
#Add blood-tipped fangs.

Strong Bad has second thoughts about the logo, since The Cheat doesn't appear to have a printer (and
his computer room.new [=iMac=] makes it look like someone chopped off the back half of his monitor). It's time for plan B:
->'''Strong Bad:''' Fresh from elementary school cafetoriums and lotto machines comes one of those actually pretty hard-to-read message board signs! Capable of advanced animation, scroll-a botones, and twelve levels of blinkiness. Now we can celebrate the lack of loafing with some fireworks! And a man doing cartwheels! No mortal would dare loaf under the four-colored dotted digital stare of this bad boy! Y'know, unless they looked up too late, and the "No" had already scrolled off, so they thought that it said, "''Do'' Loafing." Or maybe, like, Franklin Delano Loafing, our nation's laziest president.

Strong Bad also has plans to replace the blue paint on the walls with "that magic green screen paint that Hollywood still thinks looks good". With that kind of set-up, Strong Bad imagines such wonders as being able to "frolic through the bread aisle" from the comfort of his home, play video games (like the Videlectrix classic "Sundae Drivin'") on a display where "the pixels are as big as hams", or even "battling Claymation".
->(''cut to Strong Bad fighting a stop-motion Cyclops on a beach'')\\
'''Strong Bad:''' It'll take more than karate pants to keep me from toilet-papering the temple of the gods!\\
(''Coach Z comes in, wearing a necklace where his "Z" logo has been given the same treatment as the "NO LOAFING" sign, only thanks to the green screen he appears to be a disembodied head and feet'')\\
'''Coach Z:''' Hey, Strong Bad! Check it out! I squished it! And skewed it! And turned it all...\\
(''Strong Bad and the Cyclops scream and run away'')\\
'''Coach Z:''' A... round?

Strong Bad gets fed up again, and shows a less ambitious change-up in his style for "Quay-Quay"... or at least the style of the laundry room.
