Certainly the funniest comp entry I've played all week. (I must salute the use of Dr. Bronner's soap -- I keep two bottles on my curio shelf -- and the message when you pick up the chicken.)
On the other hand, my inventory says "a eggplant". Bzzt. Also, the spelling needs some work, as does the consistency of line-breaks. These lesser matters, thus, must be considered to cancel each other out. Let us go on.
More seriously, a lot of verbs don't work that probably ought to. "attach X to Y" is not the same as "tape X to Y", even though the duct tape seems to be a standard tool. Touching the toxic substance in the moat is curiously non-toxic. And the dustbuster mysteriously lacks any way to be turned on.
The weapons in the final scene seem to trigger the wrong winning messages in a lot of cases. Annoying, since this is more or less the whole point of the game.
I cavil. It's a one-scene game which got a laugh, which is all its little heart desires.
