In the beginning there was only darkness. The Creator said “Let there be light” – and there was light, and it was glorious. The Creator said “Let the beasts roam the earth, and let the birds fill the sky” – and all manner of creatures sprung forth from the loins of the earth, and they were magnificent. The creator then created man to bask in the splendour of this world. All was well. Aeons passed. Karl was born. The creator said “Maybe I was too quick to give man free will…” Karl said “No take backsy’s”, and slapped the Creator’s foot-long sub out his hands. The Creator, Ranch dressing dripping down his robe, sighed to himself and thought, “Time to start over”.
