Yeah, it's supposed to be more descriptive than a title. I may be changing it to "corrupt amulet" instead.

I must not pay attention to detail very much... I miss all this stuff.

That's why I'm an engineer-wannabe instead of a coder. LOL

I've won the 100k DD bet so many times, I should have the title "Mr. Luck"

From the second visit to "Susan Novak's Campus Office"

There's one thing thing that's particularly, and I'll get to that in a moment.


I think it should be "thing that's particularly intriguing".

In a message from the auction house:
You recently were outbid for an item at the auction house which was for a positronic computer.

One solution: "You recently were outbid for an item in an auction which was for a positronic computer."

Intribued, fill out, and the auction house awkwardness (have I told you about my new band, Auction House Awkwardness?) have been fixed?

When using a pinata with a baseball bat equipped.
Then you remember you've got a baseball bad around somewhere.

If you buy more than one Mister Tea at a time, it calls them "Misters Tea". Also, if you bet more than you have at the casino, it'll say "Somebody is going to take your kneecaps".
Can someone please remove these cutleries from my knees?

Pretty sure that's not a typo...

Somebody taking your kneecaps is a joke. Just a silly variant on the cliche of breaking them.

And if you've got Mister G. Bush and Mister G. W. Bush, you've got Misters Bush. That's how it's said. Plus, it's funny. I mostly leave the plurals to KoL, but I'll sneak on in here or there where appropriate. Especially when it's an actual valid quirk of linguistics.

No, dollars are the "official" currency. Chips just get you a lot farther in the underground world than do dollars, so you use them instead.
Have a nice day.

Actually, chips are the official currency now, according to Ryme. That's how corrupted the city is.

Okay, then the dude's a tourist, and was carrying dollars.

You need to hand over at least 21 logos. Pentacron won't take less than that.Pentacron says, "All right, fine, you're ready for training to level 55.
And, I'll throw this in here too. After leveling up, it incorrectly reports the number of logos left. Until you leave the page and come back, or try to submit the form with some logos.

It's a Simpsons quote. I knew it would get a lot of reports, but I couldn't think of a way to make it obvious it's a joke.

Okay, so I just had my "duh" moment for the day. I've totally got a definitions system to handle this. "Modren" has been linked appropriately, and while I'm not going to fix the existing skis message, all future ones will be linked appropriately to a thing that will tell people it's a joke and not a typo.

Yay for using old functionality in the way it was intended!

No, no, I LOVE the definitions. Problem is, I can't come up with useful ones very often. Sometimes I go sifting through the game looking for things to define, and nothing comes to me.
