I can be serious too... (well, sort of):

    "..... the amphibian in his playful nature ought
    to be practiced in amphibious accomplishments.
    Yet reason, in view of the scope of matters, does
    not permit me as need demands, to have a complete,
    but only a moderate knowledge of the various
    intricacies of the technical aspects to which I
    aspire. Hence I beg your pardon my fine finned
    friends and fellow readers of these volumes to
    pardon any explanation that too little agrees with
    the rules of literary art and buoyancy. For it is
    not as a lofty thinker, nor an eloquent speaker,
    nor as a scholar practiced in the best methods of
    amphibious contemplation, but as an amphibian
    who has a mere tinge of these things, that I have
    striven to write these ramblings. But in respect
    to the meaning of my playful nature and the very
    principles which it involves, I hope and undertake
    to expound them with assured authority, not only
    to my fellow amphibians, but also to the lesser
    evolved members of our world."
