Bathroom Monologue: Fighting For Myths

Zeus turning into a swan to get laid is a myth. Self-publishing being only for hacks is just a lie.

Maui accidentally catching the islands of Hawaii on a fishing trip is a myth. The overbearing Latina Mami is a stereotype.

Loki tricking Baldur into getting shot to death with mistletoe is a myth. A “free lunch” is usually a ruse.

Hercules fighting an infinite-headed dragon for redemption is a myth. 15% off on your car insurance is a promotional exaggeration.

Isis summoning a golden penis out of a catfish pond is a myth, and an awesome one. Clean coal is not.

Anything the speaker disbelieves is called a myth. This is obnoxious.


  1. Vive les definitions! Proper definitions, mind.

  2. I laughed out loud at this one! "15% off on your car insurance is a promotional exaggeration."

  3. Wild applause!

    Now, how about something on the misuse of the word epic.

  4. And, Laurita, when he's done with "epic", maybe "awesome" should be next.
