/slop'suhk-r/ A lowest-priority task that waits around until
everything else has "had its fill" of machine resources. Only
when the machine would otherwise be idle is the task allowed
to "suck up the slop". Also called a "hungry puppy" or
"bottom feeder". One common variety of slopsucker hunts for
large prime numbers. Compare background.
