When you look at the concluding trial sequence (with Pink on test, and portrayed as being a cloth doll within their cinderblock wall surface), a giant creature known as Judge Arse, whom seemed to be a huge collection of buttocks (topped having a wig) that chatted away from his rectum in a kangaroo courtroom scene; finally ordered and yelled away: “Tear along the wall surface” – in addition to solid wall exploded into numerous fragments to liberate Pink.
