There’s a whole generation of kids who think slime originated with Nickelodeon. Au contraire, mon frere. There once was a toy called Slime. It was a green slimy ooze that came in a trashcan*. It made your hands smell weird. And children played with it.
We were no exception.
*Dramaturgical note: Slime actually came in a green trashcan. I fear this comic may lead you astray since I colored them gray here. But artistic license and all that good stuff.
