Chaos Quotes about Oxford English

“If Oxford English had to ascribe to a particular set of beliefs, no doubt it would be chaos magic. It’s rumored that Oxford was actually at the forefront of the chaos magic movement. It started in West Yorkshire in the seventies, and he lived in West Yorkshire in the seventies. Come now: a philosophy merging the ideas of Aleister Crowley and H.P. Lovecraft? That simply reeks of Oxford English’s influence.” Lenora Lindhay (Author of the critically-Ignored book, Chaos Magic: Cult, or Creed?)

“Oxford likes to say he’s a proponent of chaos, but I think he’s just lazy… and perhaps a bit mad. Would it kill him to put a bloody dish in the dishwasher? Doesn’t matter how many times you yell at him for not cleaning up after himself. He’ll just keep saying, ‘Well, dear, I appreciate a bit of chaos in my life.’” Rosaline English (Ex-Wife #13)

“After Oxford got his settlement, I thought it might be a good idea to use some of the money to hire a maid. He certainly won’t clean up after himself, and it’s not my job to tidy up after a grown-arse man. So I hired a housekeeper – lovely woman by the name of Silvia. She did her best; bless her. But as soon as Oxford got home for the day, he’d just be mucking about, spilling drinks on the newly cleaned floor, knocking over table lamps… I think order makes him uneasy. He thrives in chaos, and nothing else.” Hermione English (Ex-Wife #11)

“Oxford is a big believer in chaos theory. It’s in large part because he quite enjoyed that old Aston Kutcher movie, The Butterfly Effect. He starting dropping even more acid than he usually did, claiming it would allow his brain to connect with itself in the past and alter events in the future. Once, when he came down from one of these TTTs – time travel trips, he called them – he said that by tying Winston Churchill’s shoelaces together, he’d managed to trigger the events that led to a cure for impetigo.” Stuart Dunkery (Former Coworker at Clatworthy Faux Fur Mink Farm)
