|2 Especially aZeus, who was the king of all the Gods and lived on Mount Olympus,
3 bSo he could be near his Chosen Tribe, the Greeks.
4 And cZeus worked hard at setting an dexample for the apes who worshiped him,
5 Although he didn't give them any ecommandments.
6 Instead he fell in love a lot,
7 And had many children,
8 Including fArtemis, gAries, hApollo, and a bunch of others,
9 Including some whose names didn't begin with the letter "A,"
10 Even though the Greeks were pretty proud of the letter "A,"
11 It being the ifirst letter of the jalphabet,
12 Which the Greeks had invented.
13 Zeus was married to kHera,
14 Who often got jealous of the way Zeus played around,
15 And so she had a child of her own,
16 lAll by herself,
17 Which made Zeus mmad,
18 Causing the baby to be thrown off the top of Mount Olympus,
19 Which is how nHephaestus came to have a bad foot and a limp, and had to get a job making armor for the other Gods.
20 Nor was this all the Greeks believed.
CHAPTER 51 oThe Greeks believed that the Gods ran everything,
2 Which is probably why there had to be so many of them.
3 There were Goddesses called the pFates, who were in charge of ending Greek lives,
||4 With a pair of scissors,
5 Which cut off the thread of life,
6 Whenever the Fates felt like it.
7 And then there were three qFuries, who were in charge of making the Greeks feel guilt and pain and suffering,
8 Which are absolutely necessary and required by Gods,
9 Except for rheathen barbarians, of course.
10 And there were three sGraces, who were in charge of something else,
11 Something too complicated to remember.
12 And there were nine tMuses,
13 Who were in charge of helping the Greeks create uthings,
14 vSuch as poems about the Gods,
15 Which are called myths.
16 The Muses did such a good job that there are more Greek myths than you can shake a pointed stick at.
CHAPTER 61 For example, there were myths about Gods who fell in love with female Greeks and had children called demi-Gods,
2 Which means half-Gods,
3 wAnd which shows just how Chosen the Greeks must have been.
4 There was a demi-God called xHercules,
5 Who was very strong and had to do twelve labors,
6 yFor some reason.
7 There was a demi-God called zTheseus,
8 Who was very smart and had to do some labors of his own,
9 Including finding his way through the aamaze with a ball of string,
