The Fourth Terrace

In Dante's Divine Comedy, Dante and his guide Virgil see the slothful in the Fourth Terrace Of Purgatory.
The slothful are purged by continually running. Those who were slothful in life can only purge this sin by being zealous in their desire for penance.
Sloth is our Doodle Sin for Wednesday, September 24th.

The poor sloth is the coolest looking monkey thing and it got named after a sin. Isn't that sad?
