“””” Rostand, Rostand, Rostand ! Je suis le meilleur choix. Je t’ai choisi comme agence de communication , tu parleras aux nations à travers ta pratique artistique , tu leurs dévoileras et imposeras ma vérité ultime; les clés du bonheur après la mort;Ton budget est illimité.
Tu leur dicteras ma pensée unique en dix secrets …
Ceux qui douteront ou la discuteront se noieront eternellement dans la diarrhée d’éléphants ;
Ceux qui n’appliqueront pas à la lettre mes dix commandements ;seront violés eternellement par des millions d’anges .Leur chien et chat ,enfants et petits enfants seront à leur mort broyer en boucle pour le péché de leur parent jusqu’à la soixante-dix-neuvieme génération.
ainsi soit-il “””
