Oh... my... God...! Of such innocent questions is born such blood, fire, destruction and death!
I should have foreseen this. We all should have. Most importantly Art should have. Nothing good can come of the Quinten Quads declaring something "So sad"!
The next running story is pretty much immediately obvious. They are going to modify the Slinky so it can climb back up the stairs. Unfortunately, it is going to work a bit too well. Either it is going to try to take over the world or Jack will get his paws on it and try to use it to destroy the world.
Either way, no good can come of any of this.
