PUTPBAA is a spinoff of the minimalist InteractiveFiction "[[http://wurb.com/if/game/176 Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die]]" and the differently minimalist "VideoGame/{{Aisle}}". Just as in the latter, you can only make one move, and then the game ends. You have a host of other commands to choose from, and each one leads to hundreds of {{Alternate Ending}}s, each one sillier than the last.

*** If you try to Waltz to one of the four main cardinal directions, the text parser itself gets ''offended'' to think the player wouldn't try to elaborate past the two-word entries.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Granted, while there are over 200 endings to the game, the [[http://www.ifarchive.org/if-archive/solutions/putpbaa.sol ending archive]] fails to list the word 'set' as a possible verb.

** If you try to perform an action with a direction, you get creative bug responses. Waltz <direction>, for example, gets you the response, 'Your new name is Waltzes with Bugs'.



* ICantUseTheseThingsTogether: Lampshaded; if you try to perform an action with a direction, you get creative bug responses. Waltz <direction>, for example, gets you the response, 'Your new name is Waltzes with Bugs'.

* IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure: If you try to 'waylay booth', you get a flashback to your 15 years of training in the Terran Galactic Defense Force, where you were apparently motivated by constant threats of kitten-pulverization.
