    @monicabilongame's recent thread, which might be pulled at any moment for its obscene content, brought to mind this thought-provoking puzzle:

    Slippery slope.

    A slippery slope to what Vince? More appalling jokes?

    Everything is a slippery slope...

    In an olive oil processing facility!

    Vaseline ... there's a slippery slope.

    And Marlon Brando with butter... just no, avoid ... no.

    As some domestic dogs have evolved from tamed wolves there must have been a reason at some point, although they probably didn't eat cabbages back then.

    You didn't miss anything.
    Those people are correct.
    I would take no action over this.
    This matter also requires no action.
    Honestly I wouldn't worry about it. I don't even remember if I watched it to the end. If I did, I'm fairly sure I watched it at 9 x normal speed after about half an hour, in line with my established tedious-film-video-cassette-recorder protocol. Such a strategy worked well for Three Colours Blue.
