** Racing Trilobite: Grilled snail meat and Swiss cheese on rye bread.
** Botched Construct: A chicken salad served on a Kaiser roll.
** Martian Princess: Beef tongue with horseradish on toast.

if de Goot could raise a temple in Mechanicsburg; a promise he lived up to. Then, as icing on the cake, he declares, [[FunetikAksent "Und I vants it to go!"]]go!"]] Old Man Death is so impressed with this level of thought from a [[DumbMuscle Jaegermonster]] that, rather than just giving him some random hat from the shop, he gives Maxim his own prized hat.
