The Very Saintly Ashiata Shiemash, Sent from Above to the Earth

“I must tell you that when I used to exist among your favorites it was always difficult for me to refrain, as your favorites say, from ‘laughter,’ when one or another of the learned beings there delivered a ‘lecture’ or related to me personally about some past events, of which I had myself been an eyewitness.

“These lectures or ‘stories’ there are crammed with fictions so absurd that even if our Arch-cunning Lucifer or his assistants tried to invent them, they could not succeed.”
