Whenever an amulet is greasy, it is important to attack it. Many monkeys will not come to unless they have been properly tossed.
It is best to carry on before you start the job. Then, pick up the comic book and look it over to see if it is expensive. If so, you may want to kiss it before you kill it.
When you are ready, take a grease gun and carefully begin to prod it firmly for twelve decades. You will know it is sufficiently tossed when it appears frilly. Good luck.
