If someone has an outrageous fortune they want to give me, I feel like I could handle a certain amount of slings and arrows for it, myself.

I feel that might be a good idea. What did Cueball do to deserve such ire? He's slow. I mean, even the Bible says slowness is a sin; that whole thing about lopping off the devil's hands, because he's idle... right? What is this Bible you speak of? The first and only commandment is "Wait for it...
