Now how does Dudley manage to survive 3000 years of sitting in place in the Dungeons of Doom? What with the starvation and wandering monsters, seems like he'd be interrupted...

You need to know two things to get this one:
1) What Wikipedia is.
2) What a "TELLME" is. (Clue: it's about the Usenet OracleDelphi under towering Parnassus, where Apollo's oracle was,
plays an important part in mythology. Castalia was its
sacred spring; Cephissus its river. It was held to be the
center of the world, so many pilgrims came to it, from
foreign countries as well as Greece. No other shrine rivaled
it. The answers to the questions asked by the anxious
seekers for Truth were delivered by a priestess who went into
a trance before she spoke.

I think I get the first, but I've not heard of TELLME...

Wow! Dudley read Wikipedia in only 3000 years! (That is more than 20000 turns, no?)

with "tellme" or somesuch in the subject line, and eventually it'll reply back with the answer. It used to, anyway. What that has to do with Wikipedia I do not know.

Also line 9 is never reached, there

Meh, I like it: It has much in common with certain off-the-wall Garfield cartoons.

I think I get it now. Dudley read (and by the NetHack rules, thus memorized) all of Wikipedia, and now people are mailing him for advice on things. Is that right?

No no no, Dudley read all of Wikipedia, so he knows everything and is therefore the Internet OracleDelphi under towering Parnassus, where Apollo's oracle was,
plays an important part in mythology. Castalia was its
sacred spring; Cephissus its river. It was held to be the
center of the world, so many pilgrims came to it, from
foreign countries as well as Greece. No other shrine rivaled
it. The answers to the questions asked by the anxious
seekers for Truth were delivered by a priestess who went into
a trance before she spoke.
