**Mon Dec 19, 2011 8:47 am**Yes, there were plans for an inconceivable to be thrown out... It also made use of the three door riddle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Hall_problem)

The original idea started with two cups, a princess bride discussion and him knocking over the cups and declaring them both poison.

Then the three cups would be brought out and presented in the same fashion as the riddle linked. Aloysius would have discovered the flaw in Jimmy's logic and switched cups, thinking he had a 2/3 chance to be right.

The problem was Jimmy knew he would figure it out, so he rigged it. By making two of the cups normal (one poison, one regular), and the third an anymug filled with a poison that Jimmy was immune to, he ensured his victory. No matter what Aloysius picked, Jimmy would always end up not drinking the poison.

But then it ended up as that monstrosity
