Mighty Labors
Dr. Hornschnabel has erected gigantic machines out here on the prairies in pursuit of his newest dream: Extracting energy from gravel. I sure hope it works, 'cause I've got a bunch of it.

His theory is simple: "Gravel" sounds a lot like "Gravity"; Gravity is a Universal Source of Energy; quod erat demonstrandum. When some heckler pointed out that "Grave" is an even closer match, the good doctor muttered something incomprehensible and called an abrupt end to the press conference.
