Strong Bad: (Singing) Itís email time again! Doot doodle-ooh-doo, Doot doodle-ooh-doo, Doot doodle-ooh-doo.

(Reading Email) Dear Strong Bad,

Does Strongbadia have itsí own local news, even? If so, I hope itís better than my local news.

Sincerely, Dan D.

Tallaha-... Tasalan-.. Gainesville, Florida (it says "Tallahassee")

(typing) Okay, Dan, Iím only going to sing this one more time: (singing) Ohhhhhhh If you want it to be possessive, itís just ďITSĒ but if itís supposed to be a contraction then itís I-T-apostrophe-S. Scalawag.

Ahem. Um, of course weíve got local news. Itís the- Itís the greatest! Um... But I- I have to go now... and... do something... completely unrelated to me... throwing together... the aforementioned local news. Hoight!
