clue: What is the meaning of the goo game? Page 266.
explanation: Hubbard's book Dianetics was the guide to the Church of Scientology, which he founded. The clue spoofs the famous commercials for that book, which ask in white letters on a plain black screen such questions as, "What is the meaning of life?
