Oh, I dunno if I can do this game justice; you have to play to believe it. (This game obviously inspired a small part of Emily Short's "Savoir-Faire", plus the 2002 April Fool's prank on the ifMud.)
>i. x list. x shop. x pot. z. (repeat waiting about 10 turns, until the sky stops raining things.)
The various items will be randomly scattered between the game's three locations. Don't bother examining any of them. However, you can't pick them up in any order you like; some items require you to hold other items first, eg: you need the banana before you can take the monkey. If you don't want to be bothered figuring out the relationships, just do TAKE ALL at each location and then again, until you've got all the items.
Or, visit the three locations and pick them up in this order: potato, corn (for) banana (for) monkey, tongs (for) octopus, pepper (for) cabbage, magnet (for) paperclips, tomato.
Then return to "Outside SHOP":
>put potato in pot. put monkey in pot. put octopus in pot.
>put cabbage in pot. put paperclips in pot. put tomato in pot.
>z. (repeat waiting and wandering until a safe falls on a clown.)
>look. take mystery. put it in pot.
