It's an effect, a prerecorded thing that even Guy used in one song of his (go to 3.11):


You might get lucky, now and then

Does anyone know why the victim in this song would give the narrator "arthritis"?

I could see why arthritis would be something Mark is concerned with, but in the context of this story (which I still don't fully understand, anyway), it seems to make zero sense. I'm sure it does, though - I just don't get it.

a) because it rhymes with like this" ?
b) because he is overusing his hands and fingers to get the best possible profit out of the poor "sucker"
He's even grown claws to be able to hold on to his victim more tightly. A dangerous, greedy creature!

Beware the jabberwock, my son, the jaws that bite, the jaws that catch.

Makes sense. And serves as a welcome reminder to re-read Lewis Carrol's poem and Michael Palin's film!
