Beelzebub being busy

Beelzebub in action! This one took me quite long to come up with. What the hell would Beelzebub do with a flute, a white flag and a one hundred yuan bill in the palace? But I think I found a story how everything fits. Like in , "-ai" in the pronunciation "bai4" is represented by the palace, and the fourth tone is represented by "in the bathroom" of the location. Can you see the flags float by, changing into these sweet, sweet bills? The devil is a genius.

We'll see the one hundred yuan bill, or , reappear in all the characters where serves as building block.
