Zeus grants stupid wishes

Alright guys i know you are itching for a myth
the way a scab itches for some sweet calamine lotion
and i am going to give you one
but since i just drove from pittsburgh to new york city
it is going to be a short myth
and then i am going to fall face down into this couch i am looking at

ok

so Aurora right

she’s some bullshit useless goddess
who happens to have a son fighting in the trojan war
this is not remarkable
EVERYONE has a son fighting in the goddamn trojan war
it is like HEY MOTHERS
DO YOU HAVE SOME EXTRA SONS YOU NEED SENSELESSLY BUTCHERED
TRY THIS WAR

but anyway her kid Memnon dies
due to a common hazard of the trojan war:
achilles
specifically a spear thrown by achilles
and once he is dead
his mom is all BOO HOO HOO I AM SO SAD MY SON IS DEAD
I AM SUCH A USELESS GODDESS WHY DIDNT I SAVE HIM
but instead of like
getting revenge on achilles
like some other much less worthless goddess would have done
aurora decides to go crying to Zeus
all like ZEUS
I KNOW I’M BASICALLY THE AQUAMAN OF THE GREEK PANTHEON
BUT I GIVE GOOD HEAD SO CAN YOU DO ME A FAVOR
and zeus is like i’m listening
and Aurora is like give my son at least some honor
and zeus is like sure ok
can we move on to the blowjob phase of this transaction

so then
right when Memnon is getting cremated
a HUGE AMOUNT OF SMOKE happens
and it fucking blots out EVERYTHING
and then
and then
it TURNS INTO BIRDS
WHAT
WHAT IS THIS
BIRDS?
WHY IS IT BIRDS ALL OF A SUDDEN
WHO THE FUCK KNOWS
IN THE LIGHTNING ADDLED BRAIN OF ZEUS
APPARENTLY BIRDS = HONOR
ok so those birds divide into 2 groups
and then they beat the shit out of each other for a bit
and then they land
and they become known as the daughters of memnon
apparently because he died too early to have real daughters
and then every year they come back to the same place
and peck the fuck out of each other again
it is like a tradition
a very brutal pointless tradition

so the moral of the story
is if you are going to have a goddess for a mom
try to have a less shitty one than aurora
one that can save your life in battle
instead of turning your smoking corpse into some angry birds

THE END

  1. Hey, thank you for doing this. I request more greek myths, seeing as i'm studying them, and you make them more… colorful :D

    Anyway, i just studied Medea, whom i think you'd find interesting, but i <3 greek ones, or any ones you do.

    thank you :D

  2. I have an ex girlfriend named Aurora. We broke up because she wanted to be a mom and I don't want to be a dad.

    I hope she ends up being a less worthless goddess.
