an Infocom game in which the hero has to fight his/her way through several provinces of english puns. some of these include jackville, in which all the puzzles involve words beginning with jack (jacket, jackknife...); shake a tower, which is all spoonerisms (can of peas => pan of keys, shoving leopard => loving shepherd); and buy the farm, in which all the puzzles involve common aphorisms (make a mountain of a molehill, don't cry over spilled milk)

it has been brought to my attention that i neglected to mention the fact that the game comes with a small booklet of far side style comics illustrating many punnish sentiments and cliches that did not make it into the game.
