The light dawns….
So…it’s opposites day at Whimsyworld?
Consider who wrote the code… If anyone could figure out what to do, it is Nick.
It’s the Ghandi bug from the game Civilization; Ghandi’s in-game aggression was set to minimum, so any kind gesture to him would send the value below zero. Except the game didn’t acknowledge negative numbers and treated it as a very high positive number. You would say ‘Hi’ to Ghandi and he would declare all-out war on you in response.
That seems fair enough. Simply by being there, Gandhi denied you the opportunity to work constructively with Genghis Khan.
Ha, clever reference!
Is this like Gandhi in the Civ games, but in the opposite direction?
Exactly my thinking. There’s a reason they had Nick be so good at finding bugs in Whimsy software. This integer overflow was foreshadowed nicely.
My guess is that dinasours like to play rough

Yeah, that’s what I figured too. It got so mad it overflowed and wrapped around to love.
Ah, the sort of thing that worked for Ignatz with Krazy Kat! ^_^
I thought it was a reference to Bongo
Just so long as it doesn’t start humping her leg. Now THAT would be a *bug.*
Well, they are there to find those pesky bugs.
They’re there to find Aimee, but when the bugs are just sitting around waiting for someone to make use of them…
I wouldn’t expect stupid Baron Mistycorn to get the grammar right.
“Every pigeon likes to coo when he says I love you/But a dino likes to say it with a slap”?
Basic integer overflow exploit.
Man, for all that it’s a fully functional VR world with mind control tech, whoever coded this sure is kind of incompetent about the most basic things.
