She shall be great, and shall be called THEATRE GUIDE DOG IV, and she shall reign over Cambridge theatre for ever, and of her kingdom there shall be no end. Amen.
And there was in the same country techies abiding in the field, keeping watch over their props by night. And, lo, the reviewer of The Tab came upon them, and the glory of The Tab shone around them: and they were sore afraid. And the reviewer said unto them: ‘Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all thesps. For unto you is born this day in the city of Camtown a Saviour, which is THEATRE GUIDE DOG IV. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in scandalous opinion, lying in a manger.’
And suddenly there was with the reviewer a multitude of the heavenly host praising The Tab, and saying, Glory to The Tab in the highest, and in the comments-section peace, goodwill toward anonymous cunts.
