Either Ore

You wander down a side passage in the Mine and find some kind of Dwarvish game show going on. A genial host smiles blankly at a fixed point ahead of him, while three dwarves stand behind podiums behind him.

"Welcome back to Geo-Parody!" he says. "As a reminder, our prize this evening is one each of all three ores that are mined in this mine! Mind you, the final Geo-Parody question is going to be difficult. Here it is: 'Where are you right now?'"

As it turns out, none of the dwarves can correctly answer the question. It looked like the heavy-set bald guy was going to get it, but it turned out his answer was "I <3 Boobs."

"Well, since none of the contestants could correctly answer an incredibly simple question, we'll just award the ores to a member of our studio audience!"

Since you're the only member of the audience, you get the ores. Lucky you!

Your ten-leaf clover disappears in a puff of smoke.

  • This is a parody of several television game shows, such as Either/Or and Jeopardy!, especially of Saturday Night Live's Celebrity Jeopardy sketches about Jeopardy!.
  • The "I <3 Boobs" line comes directly from the SNL sketches. The impersonated celebrities were supposed to write down where they were. Sean Connery's answer was revealed to be "InDOORS", which appeared to be correct. When the surprised Alex Trebek asked for Connery's wager to be displayed, it was revealed that "InDOORS" was not actually his answer - it was only the top half of the sentence "I ♥ BOOBS".
