Aneas Talking to the Oracle

“Facilis descensus Avernus”, or “the descent to [the underworld]” parallels the sentiment in ACDC’s It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll). ACDC also rocked For Those About to Rock We Salute You, which is a play on “Morituri Salutamus”, or “we who are about to die salute you”. I think Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is an homage to Homer.aneas

Eggferno Egglection Eggstravaganza!

Hey there, Adventurers!

We had us quite an election out ol’ San Franciskee way, and I think a lot of us are experiencing an eggs-istential crisis, particularly as Egg Lee has been elected for a second term. So the eggs and I thought that now would be the perfect time for some yolks.

I do love my city of San Franciskee (anyone who says that it is spelled otherwise is liar), but I started to think about how it’ll change and how it has changed. That got me thinking about another place I hold dear in my heart: Hell! I thought, hell, the Eggferno is a great place to depict our beloved mayor.

I was torn between which ring of the Eggferno Egg Lee should visit, but Dante and Virgil cut me a great deal! First the mayor will visit the Avaricious, where he has to charge at others with boulders. Plenty of exercise!

Then he’ll make his way to the thieves section of the Eggferno! Here, a snake bites a thief, and the thief turns into a snake. In order to turn back into a human, the snake has to bite another thief. What a lark!

Finally, ol’ Eggy boy will swing by the frozen lake of Cocytus, where he stands frozen up to his neck for betraying his city. Ahhh, rest and relaxation (I took some liberties, Inferno purists)

Not Feeling Well

Hi there Adventurers,

I’m not feeling super great today, so I will post an egg tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a re-run from my favorite episode of the Eggferno:

Dante and Virgil arrive at ring of fraud, which holds the thieves. Here, a snake bites a thief, and the thief turns into a snake. In order to turn back into a human, the snake has to bite another thief.

I redid this from my Eggferno to look more like a travel poster.
