Removed the following:

  • Guide Dang It!: E3M2 - The Cesspool. Figuring out how to lower the bars in front of the blue door to the exit room. LP'er Wicky Doo had to run around the level a couple times after clearing everything else out, speeding up the video on that point.
    • However, it makes sense for the switch to be somewhere close to the exit, or at least somewhere in the area that was only accessible through the green doors, and not randomly placed in the level as Wicky Doo seems to have thought in his mad search.

Not sure if it's an actual Guide Dang It!, given the description, or if the LPer just overlooked a switch.

Temporary removal from Lethal Joke Item, since this doesn't quite fit the description.

  • Being turned into a chicken counts. You have next to no durability, but if you can manage to get close enough to an enemy to peck them, you can one-hit kill them. There is a special humiliating message for getting killed this way in multiplayer. Also, chickens are small, can run very fast, and can glide, which lets you jump through windows you normally couldn't to run away.
  • Getting turned into a chicken also carries a one-in-ten chance of getting turned into a gigantic, uber-powerful demonic chicken.

I'd go for a regular removal, as being turned into a chicken is a negative status effect (and already listed as a Baleful Polymorph). As such, it misses the Joke Item component of Lethal Joke Item.

The fact you can exploit a surprise from such a negative condition is simply an added bonus,

Fair enough. We Are Not Gamefaqs and all that.
