The Haiku Dungeon

You notice a hidden corridor and duck down it.

or

You make your way further down the corridor.

While wandering through the haiku dungeon, you stumble into a small room with a couple of tables, some chairs, an EZ-Bake Oven, and some vending machines. Looks like you've found the Monster Break Room, where the monsters come to unwind in between disemboweling adventurers.

You see a samurai shaking one of the vending machines and cursing. He looks over at you.

"Guess which one I want.
Hit the button and get it.
Guess right and you live."

You look at the items in the vending machine. Looks like it sells everything from used leather-studded boxers to cellphones.


Push the button for ramen.

Oh tasty ramen
does not exist, but this stuff
pleases samurai.

"Fool, I hunger not!"
The samurai draws his sword:
proxy seppuku.

Notes

  • Part of the Haiku Quest. If this is the first or third room you encounter, the correct response is the five-syllable "Buy the boxer shorts." If this is the second room, the correct response is the seven-syllable "Push the button for ramen." Either way, you move on, either to the next room or to successful completion of the quest.

  • Japan, whose culture lends the Haiku Dungeon its haikus and many of the Most Extreme Haiku Dungeon Challenge challenges, is famous for having vending machines with a wide variety of strange items.
