The one formerly known as Dudley hath committed many transgressions against My holy scripture, and shall be reborn as a dog!

@ "Oh come on! Is this because of that tin of nurse meat?"

d "Why is being a dog considered a punishment!?"

The one formerly known as Dogley hath been very patient in dealing with Dudley, and shall be rewarded with the human body for which he wished during life.

d "Oh, sweet!"

@ "This is bull-" ZOT!!!

Excellent! I suppose this Deity doesn't actually speak Shakespearean English, though: "thou art" and "thy" are the older forms of singular "you are" and "your"; for plural I think it's "ye are" and the familiar "your". (Even a nine-lived cat presumably has only one soul, so it would never be "thy souls".)

The gods are actually very well-up on modern jargon and lingo, but they have to at least try to put on a show for their loyal followers. Politics, you know?
