Parsing

Found on a random programming discussion board:

And *I* don’t begrudge any penny to a person who manages to correctly parse and decode any incarnation of that badly (if at all) written sentence. Seriously, dude, this is English, not Lisp. I read 18th century theology books, and *I* had trouble with that one.
