LISTEN

You hear several children around you giggling.

There is a faint whooshing sound over your head.

SWING THE STICK AT THE SOUND

Which sound do you mean, the children giggling or the whooshing sound
over your head?

SWING THE STICK AT THE CHILDREN GIGGLING.

Your stick connects with a sickening THWACK and you hear a child scream
in pain. Large hands pull your blindfold off. As you blink in the bright
light you see the face of an angry father and a fist coming your way.

You have died.

As you say these words, a space-time rift opens in front of you, and your
words float through to a peace conference table where the phrase GET THE
BLOOD is a horrible curse in the tongue of the combatants. That phrase
provokes a war which rages on for centuries, eventually leading to the
complete destruction of their respective home planets.

You should speak more carefully in the future.

It is slippery here.

You put away the stick, and raise your Gatling-style machine gun

> FIRE AT GIGGLING

You hear a burst of automatic-weapons fire, followed by a burst of
anguished screams, followed by a burst of silence.

You are credited with six frags.

But knowing Infocom, wouldn't it be more like:

You hear several children around you giggling.

The smell of burnt flesh permeates the air. The giggling sounds have been
replaced by an eeire quiet.

It is cold.

You hear crunching beneath your feet.

As you bite into the grapefruit, you realize with horror that the fruit

Hey carol! It looks like durian! are catching on in popularity as a
weapon. These people probably need you to train them now.:-)

Michael Jackson continues making unintelligible mutterings, only more so.

Lisa Marie Presley says, "Thank you very much" in perfect Elvis imitation.

The King says, "I don't know what you saw in him, he never could sing."

Lisa Marie Presley smiles.

A large quantity of blood covers the floor.

It is slippery here.

What is a poly-father anyways? Aren't most people annoyed enough by just one?

You see the bleeding carcasses and entrails of several young children
here. They apparently met their demize from the barrel of a large-
caliber automatic weapon, judging from the size and arrangement of
the wounds, as well as the holes in the wall opposite you.

A large quantity of blood covers the floor.

Michael Jackson is here, crying "Oh, the humanity!"

Lisa Marie Presley is here.

The King is here.

Ya! Now Announcing Madame Carol!ova's Gifted Durian! Finishing
School. If you have a durian I'll show you how to use it against
villians and evil-doers. And how to make a tasty durian! shake.

No takers?

*silence*

Oh, well.
