Beelzebozo, the Clown Prince of Darkness, smiles evilly at you from atop his throne of human funny-bones.
"Welcome to my lair, adventurer. Your disguise may have fooled my security system, but it does not fool me. You will not leave this place alive. Do you have any witty last words?"
"Screw you, clown," you reply, wittily.
He tells you the most horribly disturbing joke you've ever heard. It's like "The Aristocrats", but with more necropaedophilia. Ugh! Ouch! Oof! (sleaze damage)
He does a little juggling act with an apple, a bowling pin, and your still-beating heart. Wait, what? Ouch! Ow! Ow!
He holds out his fingers and asks you to pick two. Then he pokes you in the eyes. Argh! Argh! Argh!
He dumps a bucket of water over you, but fortunately it's just confetti -- razor-sharp steel confetti. So I guess what I meant there was 'UNfortunately'. Ow! Ouch! Ooh!
He laughs demonically -- a horrible screeching cackle that freezes your soul right down to the bones. Of your soul. Ouch! Eek! Oof! (spooky damage)
He tells you a horribly disturbing joke, but it's one you've heard before, so it's not very impactful.
He does a little juggling act, but he's no Flying Karamozov Brothers. Not even just one of them.
He tries to poke you in the eyes, but you turn your hand sideways and block him.
He dumps a bucket of water over you, but fortunately it's just confetti. Still, you're gonna be picking that stuff out of your hair for days.
He lunges for your throat, but slips on an inconviently-placed banana peel. (FUMBLE!)
