->'''Joe-Kage''': Personally, I don't see what's so important about [[AbridgedSeries a bridge]]. I mean, come on...

->[[AsTheGoodBookSays To paraphrase the Holy Bible]]:\\
"In the beginning, God created a whole lot of stuff. Then God made all this stuff differentiate into different kinds of stuff. Then God instilled a seed of life into a certain type of stuff. Then God instilled a seed of intelligence into a certain type of life. But the rareness of the event of this seed of intelligence coming to full fruition ensured that [[TakeThatAudience there'd always be a lot of simple, gullible people to be manipulated by more insightful individuals]]. God had also designed intelligence in such a way that as soon as the seed of intelligence sprouted in a form of life, so would develop a concept of pleasure; and pleasure would become a purpose in and of itself. Thus God ensured the existence of an entertainment industry. Following from all this, it was inevitable that a few relatively smart people'd figure out what kind of franchise would catch on with the masses. As such a franchise spread across the globe, it would become equally inevitable that a number of funny people would simultaneously start abbreviating, [[BetterThanCanon enhancing]] and [[AffectionateParody ridiculing]] the series in question. The result of this practice would come to be known as "abridged series" and it is this magnificent product of billions years of divinely ordained evolution that constitutes the ultimate reason for this universe's existence."
