You escaped the shop without paying! You stole 10000 zorkmids worth of merchandise. An alarm sounds! The Keystone Kopts are after you!

No, "Kopts" was not a typo.

Why the hell did Dudley create a shopkeeper in the level if he was just going to steal the wand?

Yeah, the first sentence could have been made different, something that made it clear that Dudley is visiting Egypt.

But I like the rest. :-)

Except the punchline, it make me smile :-)

Lots of horizontal newts...
Btw, Dudley should have negotiated the price. After all, we're in Egypt, and 666 zorkmids sounds fair.

For my first wish! 10,000 zorkmids!

I then pay Asidonhotep 10,000 for the wand of wishing.

:)

My favorite was naming him Asidonhotep.

A Sphinx's Head, you sold it for 50000 zorkmids.

You need 2 wish to get 10K$

Sorceror: The shop's items were generated randomly. He didn't know there was going to be a wand of wishing.

And I agree with LayneRobinson, Asidonhotep is funnier than the Keystone Kopts. The first panel would have been the only one, except I came up with the Kopts earlier and only thought of Asidonhotep at the last second.
