Stacks in one sentence

A stack is just some rule which specifies a category of “wumbles over X” for every object X in some given site, with the property that both morphisms of wumbles and wumbles themselves can be specified locally on coverings in the site.

Bonus: Drop “and wumbles themselves”, and you get a prestack instead.
