In the Sorceress' Hedge Maze, you encounter this hideous golem made out of well-trimmed bushes. You really admire the guy that got close enough to this thing to trim it so nicely.
He kicks you with one of his leafy, thorny feet. You scream in pain with your leafy, thorny throat. Ouch! Argh! Ugh! Ugh! Ow! Ow! Ow!
He smacks you in the <arm> with one exquisitely manicured fist. You appreciate the aesthetics while you bleed. Ooh! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Eek! Ooh! Ooh!
It steps on what appears to be a pile of fertilizer and grows to twice its original size. It rears back a tree-sized fist and coldcocks you. Oof! Ow! Ouch! Ouch! Ugh! Ooh!
He starts to attack, but is distracted by the pale guy with a bunch of scissors for hands who is giving him a manicure.
He tries to smack you with a fist, but notices an ingrown berry and stops to pick it out.
It lunges toward you, but falls flat on its face as one of its legs breaks in half. Termites! (FUMBLE!)

Occurs at The Hedge Maze.
- At first you could not steal a hedge maze puzzle from the golem due to it being a quest item, but now it is possible.
- The "pale guy with a bunch of scissors for hands" is Edward Scissorhands, from Tim Burton's 1990 movie of the same name.
- The fumble message may be a reference to an episode of the TV series Futurama where the character Bender downgrades to a wooden version of himself. During one part of the episode, he attempts to save his friends from a fire only to have his wooden leg snap in half and have termites pour out. This is also accompanied by the phrase "Termites!"
- In Zork II: the Wizard of Frobozz, there is a courtyard area in which, if the player waits for a few turns, the hedges will attack.
