Notes

  • May 2007's item of the month from Mr. Store.
Its in-store description: +5 lbs of familiar, does lots of neat flowery stuff in combat.
  • Equips on any familiar except for the Comma Chameleon.
  • Can drop a flower and give one of the flower-smelling effects after the same combat.
  • There may be a random daily limit on flower drops. Currently the range seems to be 5-10 per day. It is also theorized that the flower drops follow a pattern similar to Oyster Eggs, dropping less and less frequently as more adventures are spent in a day. Whatever the case, the counter resets at ascension.
  • The sword behind inappropriate prepositions has no effect on the Bouquet's combat messages.
  • First prize in The Raffle House on January 16, 2008.

References

  • The description refers to the joke: Q. "If April showers bring May flowers, then what do May-flowers bring?" A. "Pilgrims."
  • This is a meta-reference to the voyage of the Mayflower ship. Their "compact" nature refers to the Mayflower Compact they signed before disembarking from the ship.
  • The message talking about the "best things in life" and the "birds and bees" refers to the song "Money (That's What I Want)", by Barrett Strong.
  • The message talking about the "fresh, clean scent" may be a reference to advertisements for the soap Irish Spring.
