Those little doohickeys that stick to your pant legs and eventually steal all your money -- how did they come to be? I had about a dozen of them stuck to me before I got a popup identiying that they were sentient pastries; I originally thought they were some kind of fuzzy cockroach with static cling.

Is alien radiation to blame? Are they attracted to certain types of clothing?

...And why did they steal all my money? :cry:

Just like we have the top hat for bats, we clearly need some kind of pastry repelling pants. Maybe an apron could work.

There really needs to be some sort of immunity thing because a) there are many, many times where they're simply unavoidable or (in the case of diagonal corridors) impossible to see to kill or avoid, and b) once they're stuck on you there's no way to get them off as far as I know. Creampuffs aren't nearly so much of an issue because they're always out in the open where you can see them beforehand.

I'm in favor of the idea, but I feel like I should point out that they're completely harmless if your wallet is empty. In fact, an empty wallet is a good way to bypass a lot of problems. Creampuffs were annoying for me to avoid, so I didn't. I just ran past to where I was going, let them kill me, and then continued on.

I just had a brainwave -- maybe wearing those shorts that the shop in the Mine sells would help? I should test it.

The eclairs only rob you when you go out into the sunlight. Just go to an underground ATM, deposit all of your money, and walk out in the light. They're no problem.

I wish there was a book or something somewhere that lists how Creampuffs and Eclairs work (or maybe there is and I missed it).

Creampuffs aren't that bad, since you can just run between when they drop off and explode.
