Reader Phinneas gave me this maddening puzzle that has consumed my days as I pore over it looking for the chicken. Where? Where? Where could it be? Under that tentacle-plant-thing? Under the next? Lurking beyond the frame? Oh, what trickery is this?
"This picture is of my favorites of the game's last few days," Phinneas said with an implied taunt in his voice. "I still hold out hope that it will be resurrected someday."
As I continue to look for the chicken, you can move on to the rest of our week's submissions!
For starters, how do you dust that high and get all of the windows? Just how freezing would that place be in the winter? Would every fart and throat-clearing echo throughout the entire place? Does the staff go to the top and drop pennies down on adventurers?
And then I remember that "magic" is probably the answer for these and get on with my life.
Bug or special feature? If you're in the PR business, you can spin any mistake into an asset!
