"Stranger with candy" may be a reference to the sitcom Strangers with Candy

Or perhaps it's just referencing the common "Stranger Danger" warning that parents tell their kids to not trust some guy they just met, even if he offers you candy?--Atlantima 12:25, 1 May 2006 (CDT)

As far as the 'halfling knob polisher', 'polishing one's knob' is slang for fellatio. --Foxy Boxy 00:53, 10 February 2007 (CST)

  • no, it's a masturbation reference. --Evilkolbot 06:07, 10 February 2007 (CST)

demon-eating kitty

may refer to neil gaiman's short story 'the price' where a black cat battles a demon every night for the sake of the humans he protects. --Myst44 09:29, 2 September 2007 (CDT)

mustachioed popcorn vendor

I found this little gem with a mustachioed popcorn vendor. Anyone have more info/background? It looks like an old movie theatre commercial clip...

organ grinder's monkey

  • May be a reference to the novel "The organ grinders" by Bill Fitzhugh, which involves baboons and has a monkey on the cover. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nicoprime (talkcontribs) on 06:44, 21 June 2010
    • hi, and welcome to the wiki. unfortunately a reference must be more than just a coincidence of titles. unless a phrase has a specific origin (search "giggity giggity") then we must assume that there's no reference unless there's more text backing it up. in this case there's just the words "organ grinder" which may have been what was in jick/riff/skully's head, but there's no way of telling that.
    • i'm really upset about "Moveable feast" which is just a title, but which so many people assumed was by hemmingway (he just used a much older phrase) that the bitching on the wiki spilled over onto the radio and skully said that it was a reference. if it was meant as one he should have put more text in. i'm still bitter, can you tell?
    • so, if you think it really is a reference, and unfortunately signs point to no, ask on the radio and maybe you'll get lucky. could be jick's favourite book or something. especially if it has baboons.
    • also, you should sign your posts on talk pages using two hyphens and four tildes like this --~~~~ which will give you something looking like this: --Evilkolbot 07:14, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Items that exist to be Autosold

There are a number of items in game now that seem to have no purpose other than to be autosold. They can't be equipped, fed to a familiar, cooked, crafted, given to someone else to craft, etc. Only considering items that still drop in game, I've come up with this list:

100 Meat
leather bookmark
meat st‰¿bing club
136 Meat
awful poetry journal (formerly useful, but no more formerly needed for quest, now still useful for self-injury)
150 Meat
silver salt-shaker
200 Meat
empty Cloaca-Cola bottle
250 Meat
huge gold coin
300 Meat
pile of gold coins
500 Meat
dollar-sign bag
1000 Meat
commemorative war stein (turn Battlefield loot into Meat)
fancy seashell necklace (turn Battlefield loot into Meat)
handful of confetti (has a trophy use, but isn't used up by that)
massive gemstone
4000 Meat
Argarggagarg's fang
broken carburetor
Heimandatz's heart
Jocko Homo's head
Safari Jack's moustache
The Mariachi's guitar case
Yakisoba's hat
5000 Meat
really dense meat stack
solid gold bowling ball
21337 Meat
Gilded BRICKO chalice
Abridged dictionary

What else am I missing? I think this list should go in a new section on the page when complete. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 19:08, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

I would assert that the poetry journal is useful for beating yourself up in order to test healing items and things that affect the Beaten Up effect, but I'm like that. --Johnny Treehugger (talk) 19:29, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Obscure, but okay. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 19:53, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
  • yu-gi-oh the abridged dictionary counts, i suppose. no sense in sticking around any longer ascension-wise.--The ErosionSeeker (talk) 20:28, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
    • Huh? The abridged dictionary is a quest item with no sale value last I checked. And the dictionary is the same. Then the third form, the facsimile dictionary is still a combat item, and is a meatpasting component. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 00:24, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
      • No it isn't.--Toffile (talk) 00:32, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
        • Sorry, meatsmithing, not pasting. Point still stands that you make the choice between using it for something or autoselling it. It's not 100% autosell material. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 00:45, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
