Aphrodite, Dr. Ja Oui Khan, The Demon Buffalo Head and The Metal Rat

The Greek goddess Aphrodite sitting in an old general store in Stettler, Alberta, Canada reading about Buffalo Lake and the origins of the North American Plains Buffalo not far from the skull of the Demon Buffalo above the store’s back door

Last week, Huawei Technologies in China had unveiled the Metal Rat (a giant robotic metal rat) for this Chinese New Year of the Metal Rat.

Strangely enough, the Metal Rat had the head of a demon buffalo and not the head of a rat.

How this came to be- therein hangs a tail (whether a rat tail or a buffalo tail no one can say for sure).

Huawei Technologies had outsourced the building of the Metal Rat to a freelance sanity challenged scientist who had a laboratory in Havana, Cuba.

The name of the sanity challenged scientist was Dr. Ja Oui Khan (a scientist of German, French and Mongolian ethnic origin).

Dr. Ja Oui Khan had once held a non-scientific job back in 2008 in the U.S. where he had served as an advertising slogan advisor to the Presidential campaign of one Barack Obama.

Dr. Ja Oui Khan was quite successful in building the Metal Rat robot.

He even originally had a metallic rat’s head for the metallic rat.

Sadly for Dr. Khan however, the billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set had recently visited the island for high level discussions on business and commerce with the Cuban President.

And Set had brought along his pet cat the fierce Nefertiti Galore.

Nefertiti Galore had been prowling about just when the Metal Rat was practicing his Chinese New Year Lion Dance and Dragon Dance routine with a member of the Chinese Embassy.

Nefertiti Galore had ripped the rat’s head off and after almost breaking a tooth trying to bite into it had thrown it into the Caribbean where it was eaten by the Caribbean Sea’s resident giant kraken.

Dr. Ja Oui Khan was in a state to find a replacement for the Metal Rat’s head.

It just so happened that Dr. Khan’s friend the Norse trickster god Loki was in Havana so he asked Loki for help.

Loki said that he would keep an eye open for a replacement for the Metal Rat’s head.

In the meantime, Loki went up to the town of Stettler, Alberta, Canada where he had a date with the Greek goddess Aphrodite.

What was Aphrodite doing in Stettler?

Well last year Athena the Greek goddess of wisdom had called Aphrodite an airhead.

Aphrodite resented that so she enrolled to take a course at Oxford University.

She figured that if she could pass a course at Oxford, no one would have the grounds to call her an airhead.

She started out by taking a course in World Mythology and Folklore.

For her term paper, Aphrodite decided to write about the mythological origins of the North American Plains Buffalo.

The Plains Buffalo were said to have originated from the waters of Buffalo Lake (a lake that was actually in the shape of a buffalo).

According to Cree and Blackfoot tribal folklore, it was Napi (the Old Man) who had called forth the first buffalo out of Buffalo Lake.

Napi had been a Cree and Blackfoot equivalent of the old Demi-Urge of Plato and Neo-Platonism.

Napi had been created by Gitche Manitou (the Great Spirit) at the beginning of time and Napi then went around creating other creatures.

Aphrodite was reading about Napi and the origins of the first Buffalo as she sat in an old country store in the town of Stettler, Alberta, Canada which was just south of Buffalo Lake.

Not far from where she was sitting was the skull of a Demon Buffalo who had emerged from Buffalo Lake the night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on the evening of April 14th 1865.

The demonically possessed Demon Buffalo was shot and killed by Gabriel Dumont (December 1st 1837- May 19thย 1906) the great Mรฉtis leader and general and buffalo hunter (considered by Canadian historian George Milner to have been along with Napoleon Bonaparte one of the two greatest military geniuses of the 19th Century) in July 1869.

The Demon Buffalo’s skull eventually wound up in this old country store in Stettler, Alberta.

The date between Loki and Aphrodite came to an end after Aphrodite poured an ice cold cup of Dr. Pepper down the front of Loki’s pants.

After Loki did an impromptu rain dance (which caused a massive snow storm in the area), the Norse trickster god grabbed the Demon Buffalo skull and took it back with him to Havana where it wound up as the head of the Metal Rat robot.

    Aphrodite as an airhead seeking education at Oxford is quite nice.

      Yes, it’s quite a different twist.

      Something that came to me at the last moment just before writing this chapter.

      Yes, Loki’s impromptu rain dance ended up with snow fall. โ„๐Ÿ˜‚

        No wonder you’re good at it ๐Ÿ™‚ and it’s hard learning something if its boring. Salute to you and your dad ๐Ÿ˜€

    Reblogged this on Dracul Van Helsing and commented:

    A vampire novel chapter I wrote last year which ties in with the theme of some recent chapters I wrote.
