Jude wants someone talking about himself in third person? Jude gets someone talking about himself in third person!

Thou thy doom master simulates Alda Merck problem power supply.

The name of the speaker was in the original quote (speaking of himself in the third person), but has been mangled significantly in the translation.

Yes to Inanna, and sort of yes to Jude. Melkor somehow became Merck, but the "Alda" was also morphed, from something closer.
