Oedipus Had Lou Gehrig’s Disease

Oedipus_and_the_Sphinx.jpgDo yourself a favor and read this term paper (click on the image to zoom in).

Among the things I did not know:

  • Oedipus’ mother aborted a kitten in a Denver Denny’s toilet
  • Oedipus had a ‘benzo’ and enjoyed busting caps in ‘flagrants of the under city’
  • Oedipus loved the New York Yankees

Remember: revisionist history does have its place among the learned elite.  And this may be the most epic retelling of Oedipus’ torturous life EVER.

Let us hope that the sacred annals of time are corrected accordingly.

Hate me ‘cuz I fight for the truth, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Did someone actually turn that in?
    I’d kinda liken the dude to OJ Simpson based on the paper, but that’s just me perhaps?

    Jonah — Glad you dug it. If it was a real thing (I hope it was) it was the funniest played out joke I’ve seen in a long time.
