  Church of the SubGenius
   n.
  
      A mutant offshoot of Discordianism launched in 1981 as a spoof of
      fundamentalist Christianity by the ?Reverend? Ivan Stang, a brilliant
      satirist with a gift for promotion. Popular among hackers as a rich source
      of bizarre imagery and references such as ?Bob? the divine
      drilling-equipment salesman, the Benevolent Space Xists, and the Stark Fist
      of Removal. Much SubGenius theory is concerned with the acquisition of the
      mystical substance or quality of slack. There is a home page at http://
