Sysiphus, you will remember, (those of you who have read your Bullfinch, that is) is doomed to spend eternity in Hades pushing a rock up a mountain only to have it roll all the way down to the bottom so he has to start the whole thankless task over again. In Bristles, Peter the Painter has to paint a house. At certain levels, Brenda the Brat, a rude little girl, comes along and leaves her chubby... [more]
