** 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.

* TakeThat: Sort of. Typing "sleep" prompts this response:
--> "Looks like another cold night coming. Your best bet seems to be the phone booth. Huddled inside, you catch some winks as best as you can before the cops move you on. The half bottle of cooking sherry you stole seems to help. Next day, the struggle begins again."
--> [[spoiler:AC:*** You were the CEO of pets.com ***]]]]


Added DiffLines:

** Then there's the above TakeThat, where a depressing paragraph about you, a poor man trying to sleep, [[spoiler:actually having been the CEO of dot-com bubble company pets.com.]]
