MYSTERIOUS, adj. A term much favored by religious apologists, as in, “God moves in mysterious ways.” This, however, is a much-abridged version of the aphorism. In full, it reads, “God moves in mysterious ways, much as a wildly hacking, blind swordsman moves through a kindergarten class.”

–from the revised and expanded edition of The American Heretic’s Dictionary, the best modern successor to Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary
