OK so usually getting the bomb paste is a no-brainer because sticky bombs are superior to regular bombs in almost every respect.

Except...

My usual modus operandi for robbing the market is to go to the top right platform and rain bombs down on the Ankh seller. I have to move down a little for the off-screen thing to kick in but generally I find it's the safest and most effective strategy as it keeps me out of harm's way (I'll also throw a bomb into the top-right shop to get the Shopkeeper to either disappear to the left, or drop down to the Ankh platform).

Trouble is that sticky bombs generally don't drop down without getting stuck to the walls, which makes the strategy all but impossible to implement.

So what's the best way to go about robbing the market with sticky bombs?

There's usually a ledge somewhere above the ankh shop that you can stand on. If you stand at the edge of it so the spelunker starts to flail, you can arm a bomb before it's dropped. That should be a good angle for bombing.

Cool! Always nice to hear from a fan.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who still comes around here regularly. Well, except for hyperme who drops by for the comic now and then. I feel like the sheriff of a ghost town sometimes...
