Some people read the question as "How do I do $step?", infer a most likely goal from the described step, explain why that step isn't optimal in one's own opinion, and propose alternate steps to achieve the same goal.
How do I get a Sluftwaffle Mark II to slurf the gripple?
You'll get better results using a Wafsluffle Mark IV.
I don't have a Wafsluffle.
You should get one. The Wafsluffle supports up to version 4.0 gripples, while the Sluftwaffle can only handle up to version 2.9.
That's okay. All of my griffles are version 2.0.
You really shouldn't be using gripples below version 3.0.
