All our lives, we’ve been fed watered-down, PC versions of the classic myths. In reality, mythology is more screwed up than a schizophrenic shaman doing hits of unidentified…wait, it all makes sense now. In Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes, Cory O’Brien, creator of Myths RETOLD!, sets the stories straight. These are rude, crude, totally sacred texts told the way they were meant to be told: loudly, and with lots of four-letter words. Skeptical? Here are just a few gems to consider: • Zeus once stuffed an unborn fetus inside his thigh to save its life after he exploded its mother by being too good in bed. • The entire Egyptian universe was saved because Sekhmet just got too hammered to keep murdering everyone. • The Hindu universe is run by a married couple who only stop murdering in order to throw sweet dance parties…on the corpses of their enemies. • The Norse goddess Freyja once consented to a four-dwarf gangbang in exchange for one shiny necklace. And there’s more dysfunctional goodness where that came from.

This is an absolutely hilarious book! Despite living on the internet, I had never come across Cory O'Brien's website Myths RETOLD - have I been missing OUT! I must admit I'm not familiar with all the pantheons presented. The ones I knew (Greek, Norse, Judeo-Christian and Egyptian - I know, I'm s...

Here's the thing: I am not easily offended. My favorite comic of all time is George Carlin, I have no problems with porn and cursing, I'm crude, etc. So this book was a great read for me. Those who consider myths holy (or are religious) might want to take a pass on this.But for those who read this b...

I think one of the reviews for this one described it as being kind of like listening to a vaguely drunk frat boy retelling myths at you, and that's very much what it feels like. That makes it sounds like I did't enjoy it at all, which isn't true - much like drunk people, it was kind of fun and kind ...
