" It is an ancient and venerated custom of people in my country to start a story by praying to a higher power. I guess, Your Excellency that I too should start off by kissing some god's arse.
Which god's arse though? There are so many choices. See, the Muslims have one god. The Christians have three gods. And we Hindus have 36 million gods. Making a grand total of 36 million divine arses for me to choose from."
