Cranial Pounding is a TADS 2 interactive fiction game and is © 2004 by Anonymous. It was a participant in the Speed-IF >= 20 event.
In this very short game where adjectives are used as nouns, you play as someone who accidentally swallowed a truth serum pill instead of a pain relief pill. You need to expel it before your interrogator arrives.

Eating Be Served
This is a public dining room.
> x sitting. x people. stand. n.
Liquidous and saladious serving
This is a self-serve counter featuring soups and salad.
> x all. eat all.
*** You have expelled the truth serum ***
All the items are food at "Liquidous and saladious serving". Hopefully it's obvious that they are all soups except for the "leafy eating", which is a salad. Eat them all.
