Some drops fall from the slime mold as you squeeze it.
R-a green potion.

First vote!

Now nobody else vote, so everybody will know how I voted.

This one's rather clever, I have to say.

#3 mijae Mon, 5 Oct 2009 11:26:01
Just squeezing it yourself sure would be a simpler way to 100% ID fruit juice.

#4 Sorceror Mon, 5 Oct 2009 11:42:49
Not only would Dudley shortly die of starvation, making the ID of fruit juice pointless, but the strip needs some capitalisation!

#5 NobodySpecial Mon, 5 Oct 2009 13:29:01
Messages that start with lowercase letters make me think of Rogue.

#6 ajbRad Mon, 5 Oct 2009 21:17:07
I always seem to find the little mistakes AFTER the strip is scheduled... >_

#7 paxed Tue, 6 Oct 2009 06:19:45
Changed the messages so they start with upper case letters.

#8 Quint Tue, 6 Oct 2009 08:42:52
Nethack needs a way to make fruit juice from your fruit.

#9 solidsnail Tue, 6 Oct 2009 14:41:38
Slime mold gives 250 nutrition. Blessed non-diluted potion of fruit juice gives 30 nutrition. I don't see a gain here. Oh, wait, its Dudley.
Fair

I take it as a parody on all those people who claim to be dying of thirst and yet cannot drink pure water.

#11 ctaboir Tue, 6 Oct 2009 18:26:10
@TJR; I take this for me :-) (IRL) Well, what a pity drinkless (or even drunkless) are not a recognized conducts!

@7aboir: your nick may give a hint about that IRL issue.

#13 Anonymous Tue, 6 Oct 2009 19:33:33
I'd assume you can still eat the slime mold after you squeeze it.

#14 Newtkiller Tue, 6 Oct 2009 23:43:17
@ctaboir : hey, actually, there is, see trick n°7.1.1

#15 Anonymous Wed, 7 Oct 2009 16:49:52
Ah. I saw the lowercase and the reference to "slime mold juice", and just assumed that it was supposed to be a Rogue throwback.

What's the n?
