If you were Scrooge McDuck-wealthy, you could custom order a badass danger guitar, or build the foundation for your very own A Boy and his Dog underground creep-topia.

Fear the Gelatinous Cube, a monster that you can defeat by...stepping to the side.
"Unless an encounter plays out exactly like the steamroller scene in Austin Powers, we fail to see how the Gelatinous Cube ever kills anybody who's not either glued to the floor or fast asleep."
"There's a protocol we follow when we're trying to save someone's life...Knowing that protocol is how you get certified to do it. And the protocol includes precisely zero steps that involve shouting or running around with your arms flailing about like a panicked Muppet."
"CPR certification courses distribute a list of songs that provide the correct beat for performing chest compressions. Said playlist includes (perhaps appropriately) 'Stayin' Alive' and (perhaps less appropriately) 'SexyBack.'"
