- Deus Angst Machina: He lost his chances to be a football player, he has a wife that is always asking for sex, two mistakes of nature as sons, a dog that just stays there, a pathetic job, ugly and always complaining customers, a neighbour that hates him and always try to humilliate him, perpetual poverty... and that's just the Status Quo, each new episode provides yet another way of being turned down.
