Lol, so true. I wish there was a way to cook your food in NetHack.

Oh well, maybe some day.

Maybe zap a wand of fire at some meat?

I've often wondered the same thing, truth be told. A nethack hero has obviously been through some kind of survival training, as evidenced by the sorts of things he can stuff down... but then to vomit at dog food? It doesn't make any sense.

For reference, in ADoM you can, in fact, cook food by zapping a wand of fire at it. (There's also a skill that will do it, without the risk of burning the food to ash.)

You had me at "ronch".

As you might have noticed I stole the sounds from your brilliant peanut strip :)

sorceror: luckily I didn't read your comment, else I would claim a paradoxon.

xCheckPoint: luckily, I did not read your strip and therefore I will not claim for plagiarism. I will not then plagiarize you saying "Disgusting, but E."
Well E! ;-)

My theory on tripe rations is, it's like Indiana Jones and snakes. Maybe Dudley was just traumatized by it as a child. My own mother never made me actually eat tripe, but she did use to joke around by holding up the packages of suspicious spongy-looking yellow stuff and saying "OOOH, you want to try some TRIPE? It's made from COW STOMACH, YUM!"

#12 Sorceror Wed, 14 Oct 2009 21:16:31
Tripe is so awful that you really would rather eat an uncooked, freshly killed hobbit. Obviously, Dudley is fond of extreme rare.

In fact, tripe can be quite tasty when apropiately cooked. In Spain it is a very popular dish, specially in Madrid and some areas on the north, and it is also prepared in different ways in many Latin American countries. I'm not really fond of it, but is is certainly not vomit-inducing. I'd take it over gray ooze any day.

Oh, and E.

ctaboir: speaking about plagiarism - your strip "http://sadowl.com/dudley/index.php?f=20090929" about this theme almost made me vomit (while laughing, which is a hard thing to do). Now that I can compare them I'm afraid yours is a lot more to-the-point. Obviously we share a certain sense of humor.
