A slab refers to 24 stubbies or cans of beer wrapped in an inviting cardboard exterior. Maybe it is a reference to beer as the foundation of modern Australian society or perhaps due to the rigidity and strength inherent in the packaging of beer in this way. Whatever it is, it's dman tasty, dman good.

skulker = S = slack

slab [Apple]

1. n. A continuous horizontal line of pixels, all with the same color. 2. vi. To paint a slab on an output device. Apple's QuickDraw, like most other professional-level graphics systems, renders polygons and lines not with Bresenham's algorithm, but by calculating `slab points' for each scan line on the screen in succession, and then slabbing in the actual image pixels.
