Track Name: Mr. Muscle Brain
Mr Muscle Brain decides to do his laundry. Setting off against a brisk city wind he finds himself at a tawdry infested washing facility. There, standing in front of him, is a machine that boasts a test: Height, Weight, Muscle to Fat Ratio, IQ, Virility, and Reason To Exist. He decides to give it a GO. Producing from his pocket a quarter he runs into his first dilemna. The number of quarters he had allotted himself that day did not exceed the number of quarters needed to wash and dry his unmentionables. Should he use the quarter, neglecting his laundering responsibilities? Breaking it down in his usual way, a mathematical formula takes shape:
The meaning of LIFE over X.
The pungent smell of his socks and undergarments over the allotted quarters.
While breaking these abstracts into numbers consisting of 0's and 1's he stops and spies a shiny object under a plastic chair sat upon by a foreigner with large breasts....a quarter!
Deleting his first equation he begins with the next:
A large breasted foreigner over a plastic chair.
Under the chair a quarter.
Is the quarter under the chair equal to the desire to know the meaning of existence? And, if provoked, would the well endowed foreigner retaliate in some loathsomely physical way? Once again, breaking these factors into numbers he must....DELETE! The foreigner has moved and now there in its place is The Quarter. He picks up the quarter from its location and places said quarter into the correct slot. He waits.
The machine rattles, rumbles, lets out a few squeaks, bleeps and farts and then DIES.
It is the most beautiful music Mr Muscle Brain has ever heard....
