Yes, the mind flayer's tentacles most certainly do suck.

#2 Quint Fri, 5 Mar 2010 04:49:24
E for not one but two (thanks to Sorceror's comment) nice pieces of humor.

#3 xCheckPoint Fri, 5 Mar 2010 08:02:43
Hasn't this been done before? -> "http://alt.org/nethack/dudley/?329"

#4 Sorceror Fri, 5 Mar 2010 10:41:17
NO! MINE IS COMPLETELY ORIGINAL!

Sersiously though, I had a feeling that it had been done before, but I couldn't be bothered searching for it. I feel mine does have some fresh takes:
1) Demonstration that Dudley is an idiot (falling for a knock-knock joke)
2) Dogley's rather sudden change in loyalty when he realises that Dudley doesn't know why the mind flayer dies (also note, in my version, this is not Dudley killing the mind flayer, but more like the mind flayer inadvertently commits suicide)
3) The footnote: "Yet another stupid survival" is in fact a reference to Dudley surviving because he's stupid.

I think I may do a sequel to this, actually ...

I'm going to try to work the word "Fuzbuckle" into a sentence today.

#6 Dav Fri, 5 Mar 2010 15:11:06
It's been done before and done better. M.

#7 NobodySpecial Fri, 5 Mar 2010 15:44:51
I'd say this is better than #329.

#8 Orl Fri, 5 Mar 2010 20:33:12
Dav's comment shows that whether your arguments are good or poor, whether you believe strongly in the joke or not, whether you insist much or less, the reader decides.

And I as reader decide a P.

Dav will no doubt rate my sequel P.

NobodySpecial: thank you.

Orl: whether you know the difference between a castrated male sheep [wether], the ambient temperature and barometric pressure [weather], and a word used to introduce alternative possibilities [whether] or not, the Phantom Tollbooth is an awesome book.

I liked it more too.

…the Phantom Tollbooth is an awesome book.

I concur.

#12 mijae Sun, 7 Mar 2010 14:55:32
The mind flayer joke might be old, but I really like the image of Dudley standing by a door doing a knock-knock joke.
