Recap / Strong Bad Email E 62 Interview

Go To

Airdate: Monday, February 10, 2003

Sender: Kerrek, PA

Kerrek from Pennsylvania wants to know if Strong Bad can hold an interview with Homsar to finally find out what his deal is.

Strong Bad: My good Kerrek, you might enjoy such an encounter, but I know I can't talk to that guy for more than about 3 seconds before I start thinking that gnawing my own leg off might be a more better way to spend my time...more...more better.

Strong Bad instead stages a hypothetical interview between himself and Homsar using crudely-drawn post-it sketches attached to pens (which can be toggled between several different drawings as an Easter egg). From this interview, we learn that Homsar is "a song from the sixties", was "raised by a cup of coffee", and was inspired by "the pride of the peaches" to move to Free Country USA.

Strong Bad concludes the hypothetical interview with a hypothetical beat-down when the doorbell rings. Alas, it's not The Cheat with Strong Bad's Thai iced tea, but the real Homsar.

Homsar: AaAaAaAaAaAaA! Hey, Reggie! Is that rhinoceros around?
Strong Bad: Um, I can only assume you're talking to me and asking about Strong Sad. He's in the basement.
Homsar: I'm a song from the sixties!
Strong Bad: (putting salt on his leg) If you don't get down there quick, things could get real ugly around here...


  • Accidental Misnaming: Homsar refers to Strong Bad as "Reggie".
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: Strong Bad seems to like Kerrek's name enough to name a monster from the Trogdor-verse after him.
    Strong Bad: And then Trogdor smote the Kerrek, and all was laid to burnination.
  • Black Comedy Cannibalism: Being around Homsar for too long apparently makes Strong Bad contemplate gnawing his own leg off.
  • Brick Joke: Strong Bad initially thinks Homsar is The Cheat with a glass of Thai iced tea. If you wait for a bit after the end of the e-mail, then The Cheat actually shows up with Strong Bad's drink.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • One of the alternate forms of the Strong Bad post-it puppet is based on the caricature of him seen in "vacation".
    • Another of the Strong Bad post-it puppets is based on the Strong Badman action figure.
    • Strong Bad first discussed salting and attempting to eat his leg in "island".

  • Easter Egg: Clicking on the sticky note pictures of Strong Bad and Homsar will change the illustrations.
  • Not Hyperbole: Near the end of the e-mail, we find Strong Bad isn't kidding when he says prolonged exposure to Homsar's babbling makes him want to gnaw off his own leg.
  • Raised by Wolves: Strong Bad suspects that Homsar was "raised by a cup of coffee".
  • Shout-Out:
    • During the hypothetical interview, Homsar quotes a Reebok commercial starring Shaquille O'Neal by saying "Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk!"
    • The flying skull version of Strong Bad resembles the Bubbles from The Legend of Zelda.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: One of Strong Bad's lines for Homsar in the fake interview is "I'm a song from the sixties!" Near the end, the real Homsar actually says this.
