Covidicus, Chapter 11 meets Brexodus, Chapter 22
Translator's note: Sometimes we find that two distinct chapters of the Bible are identical: for example, 2 Kings 19 and Isaiah 37 (not to mention the book of Rosica, which is copied from numerous other texts). Here is another case in point. Continued from Brexodus Chapter 21 and Covidicus Chapter 10. 1. In the last month of the year, Bo-sis was ready to sign a treaty with the new Pharaoh, Ursula of Lebanon, so that the children of Bri-tain would finally be able to make peace with EU-gypt. 2. However, the Frenchites, the Spanishites and the Dutchites were very fond of fish, and their fishermen spake out saying "For many years we have fished in the Red Sea, yeah, even in the waters of the children of Bri-tain. Let us continue to do so." 3. "For our starving children ask us for fish, and we have to give them a serpent. (Which, actually, the Frenchites quite like.)" 4. Meanwhile, the plague continued to rage, and even as the mighty vixen began to protect the elderly and infirm, Bo-sis had ill tidings for the people. Indeed the tiers began to flow as never before. 5. For the Londonites were cast into a fourth great tier, where there was a weeping and gnashing of teeth. And there they remained. spake out saying that the aged ones should not go to the temple, but stay at home watching the box that is called Goggle. 10. For it was written, "Your old men shall see tele-visions and your young men shall dream dreams." 11. Moreover, the learned doctor Daw-kins, whose life story is recorded elsewhere, was also wrathful, and he cried out saying, "Bah! Humbug!" which later became the title of his next book on religion. Continued in Covidicus, Chapter 12.
