These are the words spoken by our Lord, Holy Timothy Dexter, and we shall cherish them. The philosopher of legend, Holy Timothy Dexter has so kindly granted us with many valuable an insight, a guide to enlightenment. In his holiness he has imparted upon us great lessons of history, philosophy and personal stories of which to live by. All this complimented by the finest literature and penmanship ever to grace humanity. His masterful sentence structure is imbued with metaphor of such profound and complex meaning that one can spend a lifetime rereading his raptures and gain new meaning each time. Our Lord has subverted the expectations of the normal person and has cleverly reinvented the foundation of fickle ideas such as punctuation grammar and capitalisation, meaning only the Knowing Ones can acquire the pickle, for it is a pickle for the knowing ones. In all His endless generosity, he has bestowed upon us a prayer in his honour, for which we shall repeat until the rebirth and subsequent never ending rule by his majesty. I ask you all to join with me and recite the prayer in the preparation for his arrival upon the Earth once more.
