The punchline is brilliantly simple. And thank you for not making it a newt.

I would have Lol'd if it was a newt.

It made me smile anyways although something similar has been done before.

It's kind of like those plot devices in movies and on TV. A friend told me that his father, when watching Lost In Space and Doctor Smith had gotten the family in peril once again, would rant "why don't someone just shoot that guy?" Same thing here: why doesn't Rodney just post a powerful guard at the top and be done with it. The answer is that unless someone behaves like an idiot, against his own group's best interest, the plot can't go forward. :)

I just argue that the villains are contractually obligated to lose to the protagonists under certain conditions.

This makes some villains bitter. Others, however, seem to have come to accept it as a nice source of (supplemental?) income, and are perfectly willing to sit down and have a beer with the good guys.

This alternate interpretation, of course, smacks of Punch Clock Villainy: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PunchClockVillain .

WHY did you have to link TVTropes... there went the last 3 hours... ;p

And yes, thank you for not making it a newt joke. Monsters that are supposed to be powerful should actually be powerful, newt jokes are for making fun of Dudley. (and they're overused)
