Was bad for his helf…

How Castor and Pollux Came to Be

As a swan, the Greek god Zeus

Gave Leda a goose

But Tyndareus was faster

So he fathered Castor

And, both guys are why

So she took each child’s life

He angrily yelled, “Come back here, Medea!”

And, she replied, “See ya!”

  2. I have a bit of intel
    Some info, if you will.
    I hope that this precipitates
    Some happiness and thrill.
    I’ve named you for a Liebster
    A kind of blog award
    And when somebody gave me one
    I was quite chuffed and floored.

    I hope you find it swell,
    But if you just ignore it
    I’m fine with that as well 🙂


    This is the little write-up I wrote about your blog 🙂

    “…The fourth is quite amusing
    His name is masercot
    And in his blog and comments
    He’s made me laugh a lot.”
