In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God saw all that he had made, and it was good. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
‘Ooops,’ said god, seeing he had created a fool. But before he was able to remedy his error, man spoke;
‘No backsies!’ he chirped, and scuttled off into the forest.
