I went on my yearly afternoon walk around the lake with the ghost of Walt Disney.

I said, “Ah, the sweet virtues of being lazy and purposeless.”

The ghost of Walt said, “Sloth is one of the seven deadly sins!!”

I said, “Yet it’s been proven that down time is necessary for great creative productivity.”

The ghost of Walt said, “Actually while I was alive, I felt cigarettes provided my inspiration. I even created an animated film called Puffy, about a talking cigarette. It was meant to play in theaters across the country in 1964. Unfortunately the movie was ill-timed as it coincided with the Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health, and Puffy had to be scrapped.”
