Ye approacheth yon INTERSECTION. Obvious exits are NORTH, SOUTH, and DENNIS.

Dennis is a name frequently used, especially in Thy Dungeonman. The Brothers Chaps also pay homage to the comic strip Dennis The Menace in many toons, and reveal it in their commentaries. Dennis is sometimes used as one of the "obvious exits" in the Thy Dungeonman games, its opposite being "Not Dennis". In Thy Dungeonman he wears a sporty frock coat and a long "jimberjam" (which he purchased on sale at a discount market), and he enjoys pacing around nervously. Thy Dungeonman thinks Dennis is boring to have a conversation with. To win the first Thy Dungeonman game you must give Dennis a trinket, after which he tells you what parapets are, allowing Thy Dungeonman to leave thy dungeon. In Thy Dungeonman 2, Dennis has a significantly smaller role as an Easter egg. Typing "dennis" will give you the message "Ye hasn't seen Dennis in a fortnight. Maybe luck is on your side." Dennis was later seen in web comics in "The Animated Adventures of Thy Dungeonman" as a cartoon form of the word "Dennis" chasing "Ye Flask" for unknown reasons. In Trogdor!! The Board Game, there is an item called "Ye Flask of Dennis".

Outside of Thy Dungeonman, several other line drops in the Homestar Runner body of work have surfaced from time to time, but it isn't always clear whether or not the Dennis mentioned is referring to the same Dennis in Thy Dungeonman. In the old Message Bored, Matt Chapman used an avatar that cycled through several actors named Dennis. In 8-Bit is Enough, clicking on the pennants in Extended Play will show a fake credits sequence that mentions Dennis as "Best Dennis".
