Aphrodite At Oxford 

The Greek goddess Aphrodite writing her term paper on the Native American myths surrounding the origins of the North American Plains Buffalo

The Greek goddess Aphrodite had recently returned from the town of Stettler, Alberta, Canada where she had been researching Cree and Blackfoot indigenous myths on the origins of the North American Plains Buffalo.

She was putting the finishing touches on her term paper for the class she was taking in World Mythology and Folklore.

The class was taught by Prof. William Charles an Associate Professor of Mythology, Folklore, Vampirism, Lycanthropy and Paranormal Studies at Oxford.

His class was extremely popular and hard to get into.

Nevertheless the Greek goddess Aphrodite when visiting Prof. William Charles in his office before the start of this semester was able to convince the famed supernaturalist into letting her into class even though she had no previous formal education.

Leopold II Comes Tumbling Down While Abdullah II Warns of Middle East Conflict

June 9, 2020 at 9:49 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, International Intrigue, News, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , )

British MP Renfield R. Renfield was asked to comment on the removal of a statue of King Leopold II of Belgium in the Belgian city of Antwerp.

Gasoline was poured over the statue and it was set aflame during a Black Lives Matter demonstration last week.

Today the statue was taken down and placed in storage in a museum.

King Leopold II was infamous for having conducted a genocide against the people of the Congo in which more than 10 million people died.

Renfield drank a Belgian beer with an unpronouncable name and saluted the removal of the genocidal tyrant’s statue.

“Mr. Renfield, this year 2020 has had the Covid-19 virus which nobody saw coming. A white policeman’s murder of a black man in Minneapolis has ignited a global movement against racism and police brutality that nobody saw coming. In this year of surprises,” a journalist asked the MP, “is it possible that some major event is out there that’s on the brink of happening but yet one could see it happening before hand?.”

“There is,” Renfield nodded, “If Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu goes ahead and annexes large swathes of Palestinian territory in the West Bank around this coming July 1st like he says he’ll do, this will set off a major powder keg in the Middle East.”

“It will?” Blinked the journalist who belonged to that generation that called itself Woke and therefore was asleep and totally oblivious to what was really happening in the current world.

“Yes, King Abdullah II of Jordan has warned of a “major conflict” with Israel if that annexation goes ahead,” Renfield pointed out.

“Why didn’t I know about this?” The journalist seemed perplexed.

“Possibly because you in the mainstream media have been constantly yapping about Covid for the past 3 months and nothing else,” Renfield explained, “It’s only with the Black Lives Movement going global that you’ve finally found another story to cover. 30 years ago, journalists once covered a multitude of stories. Today you people in the media can’t seem to handle any more than 2 or 3.”

“You hurt my feelings by saying that,” the Woke journalist had tears in his eyes, “All throughout my school years, my teachers told me I should always have high self-esteem. How can I have high self-esteem if you point out negative stuff like that? I’m going to send out an angry tweet about this. #Insensitive.”

As the Woke journalist went off to send a whining tweet, BBC News Anchorwoman Geeta Guru-Murthy asked Renfield for more infomation about what was happening in the Middle East.

“Well,” Renfield sipped a brandy, “Netanyahu is working behind the scenes to get Jordan’s King Abdullah replaced as the Custodian and Guardian of the Holy Sites in Jerusalem by Jared Kushner’s good bum buddy the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. Since MbS is a narcisstic and bloodthirsty fellow who’s been conducting a genocidal war against the Houthi peoples of Yemen for the past 5 years (a war totally ignored by the Western news media), it should come as no surprise that he’d be willing to sell out the Palestinians if it would work to his greater advantage and glory.”

. . .

In the Middle East, Dark Side Deep State operatives within Mossad were plotting the assassination of King Abdullah II of Jordan.

The Greek god Ares (Greek god of war) sat outside the meeting and drank a toast.

Aphrodite At Oxford

Aphrodite At Oxford 

The Greek goddess Aphrodite writing her term paper on the Native American myths surrounding the origins of the North American Plains Buffalo

The Greek goddess Aphrodite had recently returned from the town of Stettler, Alberta, Canada where she had been researching Cree and Blackfoot indigenous myths on the origins of the North American Plains Buffalo.

She was putting the finishing touches on her term paper for the class she was taking in World Mythology and Folklore.

The class was taught by Prof. William Charles an Associate Professor of Mythology, Folklore, Vampirism, Lycanthropy and Paranormal Studies at Oxford.

His class was extremely popular and hard to get into.

Nevertheless the Greek goddess Aphrodite when visiting Prof. William Charles in his office before the start of this semester was able to convince the famed supernaturalist into letting her into class even though she had no previous formal education.

The subject Underwater Basketweaving While Emerging From A Giant Oyster Shell On The Beaches of Cyprus wasn’t considered a valid academic course in the view of Oxford University.

Although it was recognized by most American colleges and universities as such in order to get the best high school athletes into their college football and basketball programs.

But after a little gentle persuasion from Aphrodite, the famed supernaturalist let the goddess into his class.

Outside the window of the Greek goddess Aphrodite’s dorm room, the Greek god Ares was endeavouring to get inside as he hadn’t seen his sometime girlfriend ever since she started at Oxford.

It just so happened that strolling along the grounds between the various halls and dormitories was the Celtic stag god Cernunnos with his trusted crossbow and arrow (that he used to kill deer hunters).

Cernunnos was heading to an Oxford artists’ studio where he would be posing as a model and subject for Oxford art students to draw and paint.

The original model scheduled for today’s art session had been an Australian named Uncle Ernie (who had once modelled for Salvador Dali).

But Uncle Ernie had been arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport earlier today for trying to enter the country illegally.

When the totally nude and jock less Uncle Ernie had approached the female UK Customs and Immigration officer and said, “I have nothing to declare”, the agent looking at the body parts Uncle Ernie was trying to cover said that she wholeheartedly agreed but nonetheless facial recognition had determined that Uncle Ernie was on Interpol’s watch list of “characters of dubious reputation and ill repute”.

Within seconds, Uncle Ernie found himself on the floor in handcuffs.

Meanwhile back at the Quad on Oxford, Cernunnos had shot the Greek god Ares in the backside with an arrow.

The resulting commotion and screaming caused Aphrodite to open her dorm window which sent Ares plummeting to the Quad grounds below.

Seeing as how Ares was an Olympian immortal, all he would suffer on this day was a pain in the neck and a pain in the backside.

Aphrodite meanwhile grabbed her finished term paper and headed to Prof. William Charles’ office.

The two spent hours long into the Oxonian night discussing the Native American myth of how the great horned buffalo came to be.

Lepardia Marango and The Outdoor Concert

August 8, 2019 at 10:57 pm (Geopolitics and International Relations, International Intrigue, Romance, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , , , , , , , )

Lepardia Marango and The Outdoor Concert

Lepardia Marango the cultural attaché at the South African Embassy in London checked how she looked before heading out to an outdoor concert at Saint James’ Park in the City of Westminster, central London.

The outdoor concert was being put on by the VW Love Bug Herbies a group of Beatles impersonators.

The concert was to commemorate today’s 50th anniversary of the most famous record cover album photo ever taken – Iain MacMillan’s famous photo of the original Fab Four walking across Abbey Road for the cover of their Abbey Road record album.

Lepardia headed out into the night.

She was to meet British MP Renfield R. Renfield (the Deputy Foreign Secretary In Charge of Geopolitical Intelligence Gathering) at the concert to compare intelligence notes from their respective governments on what was happening in Hong Kong.

Both Lepardia and Renfield had come to the conclusion that the mysterious creature Cthulhu (first mentioned in H.P. Lovecraft’s short stories) and the Black Dragon (supernatural entity advisor to China’s paramount leader Xi Jinping) were both battling for control of Hong Kong as part of each supernatural creature’s geopolitical plan for control of the South China Sea and eventually the entire South Pacific region.

Lepardia arrived at the concert just in time to hear the VW Love Bug Herbies sing “She loves me yeah, yeah, yeah…”

She noticed the Greek god Ares seizing the placard of someone dressed like a 1960s hippy.

The placard read Make Love Not War which was also the motto of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s famous early 1970s Montreal anti-war sit-in and love-in as it was dubbed at the time.

Ares ripped the placard to shreds.

Canadian vampire hunter Dracul Van Helsing noticed the commotion.

He approached the Greek war deity and said, “Hey, Ares, your shoelace is untied.”

Ares (who was wearing Greek sandals) looked down.

That was when Dracul Van Helsing kicked Ares full force in the head.

The war Olympian was knocked unconscious.

Van Helsing noticed Lepardia Marango and waved.

She approached him, “Nice touch using that old “Your shoelace is untied” routine especially on someone wearing sandals.”

“It’s like I commented on someone’s blog tonight,” Van Helsing smiled, “Ares wasn’t exactly the brightest apple on Mount Olympus.”

“Do you know where Renfield is?” Lepardia asked.

“He’ll be here in another hour or so,” Van Helsing replied, “He’s currently interrogating a member of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s janitorial and cleaning maintenance team.”

“That means he might be gone for a while,” Lepardia noted.

“Care to dance?” Van Helsing held out his hand.

“Does this mean, Van Helsing,” Lepardia smiled, “that you want to hold my hand?”.

“It does,” Van Helsing smiled back.

“Well, then, Strawberry Fields Forever,” Lepardia took his hand.
