Research by HGPs Mandrake Chapman has discovered that vacuum cleaners are trying to take over the world.  "Only they’re not vacuum cleaners at all!  They’re creatures from another dimension.  Vacuumians!" says Mandrake. “Everybody knows that space is a vacuum.  These creatures, these Vacuumians, are sucking away all of our oxygen to turn the earth into a vacuum, just like outer space, just like the outer rings of the Hoover Nebula where they come from.  They want to suck away the very breath that we’re breathing!  They must be stopped!”


According to Mandrake, there is only one sure way to stop them before it’s too late, before the earth goes beyond the suction threshold.  “It’s simple,” states Mandrake.  “Everybody!  We have to stop using vacuum cleaners!  Unplug them!  Unplug them all!  Unplug them now!  They’re helpless without their power source.”
