Synopsis: In the new era after Jesus II, the world has discovered the joys of negative, pointless activity, the greatest benefit of which is the disappearance of unemployment. This is not much of a change, though, since nobody seemed to know before why or what they were working for, anyway. So now vacuum-cleaners spit out the dust they have just swallowed, cars puncture their own tyres, and shops immediately give back the money their received for the sale of perfectly useless objects, such as bottomless cups and ink-blot-producing fountain-pens.
