Victor's Victory

Zeus was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.

To amuse himself, Zeus set his eyes on Earth where he found a poor shephard named Victor having drinks with his friends.

They seemed to be having a wonderful time, but when in his inebriated state Victor revealed that he wanted to be a King, Zeus wanted to be a King-maker!


Zeus immediately took Victor and his friends near an ancient pedestal where a sword had been inserted that people claimed could only be removed by a scion of the royal dynasty.

Then to everyone's wonder, with school-boyish spunk, Victor easily pulled out the sword in full view of his friends and the royal soldiers and rested on his laurels when declared King, while Zeus felt better!

  7. The photos are great. It reminds me of the legend of King Arthur, set in a different time, parallel universes.

  8. Such a cleverly twisted tale, with the god bestowing power and honor on a mere mortal, just to amuse himself! I totally enjoyed this and the pictures fit perfectly. :-)
