Real citation: "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Sometimes the giveth seems a little disproportionate to the taketh. There seems to be a lot more takething going on, but there it is.

(Priest Maxi, "Spontaneous Combustion," April 14, 1999, South Park)
Made-up citation: "“If the good lord were takething stuff on The Simpsons, would his holiness be yoinkething as well?”
