There doesn't seem to be any potions missing, unless Gnomely took one from the space the shopkeeper is now on.

Maybe Dudley sold a potion and left it on the empty space.

(Why) is that funny? I'm not getting it at all, but the view votes so far suggest I'm missing something...

It's a reference to the fact that shopkeepers don't do a damn thing if your pets steal something, even if they see it happen.

Well, I'm submitting my first comic tomorrow.

#6 Prefectfordprefect Sat, 18 May 2013 16:14:59
Submitted!

My pet stole a Wand Of Wishing the other day and: The shopkeeper gets angry! I guess that he notices expensive pet-theft.

You feel foolish! You haven't been paying attention!

stupid triple post

@Prefect: Pets can steal anything and the shopkeeper won't notice. Something else must have happened to make him mad. Unlike ADoM, there's really not anything in Nethack that can randomly anger a shopkeeper; and although it's possible to do so indirectly (such as by having him fall into a pit you dug), this is uncommon and you would have noticed it.

I'm guessing what most likely happened is this: Your pet dropped the wand on a square diagonally adjacent to the door, then moved to the spot directly in front of it; then you took the wand, stepped onto that square and displaced your pet, and the shopkeeper got angry. Is that right?

I thought the joke was that he turned on showrace and the shopkeeper didn't notice.

#11 Prefectfordprefect Tue, 16 Jul 2013 20:07:18
Correct Xandersol.
@anther: No, I displaced my pet and the shopkeeper was fine with it. When I left, however, he tried to kill me.
