Stinky
::::::

(Walking to the left)

Conker: Oh Cack! Agh!

Conker's thoughts: What a stink! I think this calls for my gas mask.

*Conker pulls out gas mask and puts it on*


AND

SACRIFICE!
::::::::::

*Dino stands there looking cute*

Conker: Hehehe. This is gonna be interesting.

*Dino looks up and sees slab just as it starts to fall. It lands as blood
flies everywhere. Conker turns around to see the aligator statue head
rumble*

The God: I am pleased...with your offering

*The head opens and a big long tounge rolls out*

Conker: Oh cack!

*Conker leaps out of the way before the tounge squishes him. A monk then
walks down to the tip of the tounge*


What a weird game. I don't think I've heard the word anywhere else before.

It's one of the many alternatives that British people or those of that area use for the word S*** or crap.

British slang for excrement.

I never knew what the word, “sussed” meant either till I played this game. Conker and the King Bee use it during their first exchange. Not entirely sure if it’s British slang or not, but it’s definitely an uncommon word.

Strange. The UD says it means "cock." Apparently it's pronounced that way with a Boston accent and was popularized by the movie "Good Will Hunting." I watched that movie and don't recall the instance. Oh well.

As for "suss," I assumed it was British slang for "suspect" (the verb, not the noun).

Cack is what comes out of your bowels (from the French 'caca', which has the same meaning).

To suss someone is to see through them/work out what they're really like.

Both are uncommon words, but they do exist (at least here in England).

Wow, and here I thought this whole time that Conker himself actually had the cleanest vocabulary in the game. Lol, egg on my face.
