2 Spanners: No, anything but that. The very idea fills me with dread.
3 Iki Piki: Why?
4 Spanners: It's just too Orpheal to consider.

Orpheus was a guy from ancient Greek legend who descended into the Underworld to rescue his dead wife Eurydice. He would have got away with it too, if not for the typical tragic ending of all such Greek myths, in which, after being instructed by Hades and Persephone not to look back to make sure his beloved Eurydice was indeed following him back to the mortal realm, he succumbed to the temptation to look and check.

Pretty petty of the king and queen of the Underworld, if you ask me.

2014-12-10 Rerun commentary: If you look around you and you find yourself living in a Greek myth, you can pretty much guarantee there is tragedy awaiting you somewhere down the road.

So keep an eye out for men with one sandal, or three beautiful women asking you to judge which one is the most beautiful, or task lists from your boss which include things like catching feral boars and mucking out stables with a deadline of tomorrow.
