Where Is My Slack?

Gather round, children, because the Demolition Squid has a story for you.

One day, Curly lost his slack, so he set off to find it.

He asked a hippy. The hippy said.
"Hey man, just light up and feel your troubles melt away."

It makes everything fuzzy and warm.
Curly said: "This just makes me slow down. This is not my slack."

He asked the spider. The spider said.
"Ssssettle down in front of the TV, your friends and neighbors love it."

It was very comfortable. But it was full of lies.

Curly said: "This makes small things great and great things small. This is not my slack."

Curly asked the politician. The politician said.

"War, fear, hate, issues, change, vote, believe, enemies, paranoia."

And that made no sense at all.

And then Curly realized, why am I asking all these other people anyway? THEY can't tell me where MY Slack is. None of them have even a little Slack of their own!

So Curly went out and tried to find his Slack on his own.

"Is this my Slack?" He wondered.

It is a peaceful protest. It provides a cheerful outlet for security services to watch for potential troublemakers!

"These people are smiling, but there's fear in their eyes." He said. "This is not my Slack."

"Is this my Slack?" He asked.

It is an internet protest.

It accomplishes fuck all!

"What the hell is this shit?" He wondered aloud, "This is not my Slack."
"Where is my Slack?" Curly shouted, getting increasingly annoyed.


"This is madness!" Curly giggled, "This is insane!"


"That's my Slack."

And all was right in the world.

The End.
I had an existential crisis and all I got was this stupid gender.


This is a good illustration of what slack is by actually pointing to it rather than explaining it. Also, I'm glad Curly actually found his slack. :)

I'm a sucker for a happy ending.  :)

I hadn't really considered doing more. Inspiration struck... maybe I will!

Thanks. I was just thinking about going to look for my Slack.

And Breadhat Man is my fucking hero.
