a) How appropriate! You fight like a cow!
b) I'm glad to hear you attended your family reunion!
c) So you got that job as janitor, after all.
d) Too bad no one's ever heard of YOU at all.

I think that the answer is : e)Your hemorroids are flaring up again eh?

Mattias Cedervall - Jun 29, 2015 at 15:48
But butt, but butt, but butt, ewww!

Maybe suitable for the different characters in Thimbleweed Park?

a) I see the FBI gave you a toy gun to water plants.
b) A lobster is more of a cirkus clown than you.
c) A tin foil hat to hide the fact your brain is missing?
d) I don't think you can predict what day comes after Monday!

Mattias Cedervall - Jun 29, 2015 at 16:44
e) You would get scared by a hamster's lipstick!

Natalija - Jun 29, 2015 at 17:01

Ron wants to have a full build of the game on display at the Tokyo Game Show in September :D

STOP F*ING the game immediatly. Nothing good will come of that. And besided I'm sure that's a sin on some religion on an another.

How about some Ransom the Clown quotes?

a) I once interviewed to be a mime, I never heard back.
b) The only inflation I can keep up with is the helium in my balloons.
c) The hardest Act I've done all week is pretending I care right now.
d) I've got big shoes to fill, my dad juggled 2 kids and a mortgage and he only dropped me twice!
e) My parents once asked me, what do you want to be when you grow up?
TA-DA! People should not make career decisions at age 7.
f) I just finished a book about a clown, "IT" Did not end well for him.

a) Could afford a better nose, but the kids don't buy enough of my bootleg death metal tapes.
b) Never again facepaint from the hardware store. However cheap!
c) Note to self: Check for Fettucini brothers logo on every human cannon BEFORE, not after. (reference to Monkey Island)
d) I can't see a thing in this mask. (reference to Star Wars)
e) ... Laughing on the outside, raging on the inside.
f) I'm done giving free hugs.

Dominik - Jun 30, 2015 at 07:59
Giving hugs should be in the game!

There could be a "Hug" inventory item and you would use it like this:

GIVE Free Hug TO Dead rat

A good Setup for some brillant reactions from the hug-molested inhabitants of TP!

This was another clown, he is called Dropsy!

Remember Broken Sword 2? You had a prank buzzer with you, and when you talk to anybody, you can ask them if they want to shake hands ;D. And the most hilarious thing is not that you actually electrify them; it's the excuses they make - EVERY single one of them - to not to have to shake hands with you!

Nor Treblig - Jul 01, 2015 at 19:21
Hehe, yes, I remember! I think it was BS1. Talking about clowns...
