“That's silly,' said Martha. 'Friends should always tell each other the truth.”
James Marshall, George and Martha

“This book is a work of fiction that was given to a pirate after it was retrieved from the future by exotically beautiful Eastern European girls. Then diabolical Eastern European scientists worked tirelessly to ensure that every name, character, place, and incident in the world which, even remotely, resembled one within the book was "erased." (How? Ninjas.) If any similarity still exists, it's purely accidental (and suggests you live in an alternate dimension). Any lingering resemblance to actual events, locales, or persons, living, dead, or undead, is entirely coincidental and highly unlikely.”
James Marshall, Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies

“I’m your saviour; I’ve come here to destroy you.” —Guy Boy Man”
