Go Big or Go Home

I think this is my second or third 10-foot-pole joke. To say nothing of jokes made by other web cartoonists. They are pretty ridiculous of an item: a meta creation designed under the assumption you can trigger gotcha! traps from a safe distance via said pole, predicated on the assumption that gotcha! traps are common enough to warrant bypassing and thus require such a pole to be sold in every quartermaster’s shop in the realm. Pants, boots, lanterns, food, and comically large sticks. 

As jokes go, it’s pretty low hanging fruit. I could reach it without the assistance of a pole.
