The pit would give a reasonable man time to consider what his position is right now. Right now, Wizer is in a hole, being punished for having threatened Moo with a stampede of dinosaurs. Wizer is NOT a reasonable man, though, so now he’s threatening the king with worse to come.*********History lesson: Back in that time, kings had absolute power. All Guz has to do is issue the command, and his bodyguard will remove Wizer’s head from his neck. Right about now would be a good time for Wizer to start backing down.
