HOW DID THIS COME TO BE? Know that you were born with Original Slack. But the Conspiracy, of whose overarching existence you are but vaguely aware, eternally seeks to steal this, the Precious Gift of J.R. ‘Bob’ Dobbs from you, and sell you, in its place a Worthless Mess of the Pottage of False Slack. The Conspiracy doesn’t want you to have True Slack. Oh, no– the Conspiracy wants you to work for a living. But we say:

REPENT! QUIT YOUR JOB! SLACK OFF!

SOUND COMPLICATED? IT IS!
