“Narcissus” This bold ring was inspired by the myth of Narcissus, a beautiful hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia. The stately 10mm x 20mm gemstone represents the reflective pool that Narcissus gazed into, curling foliage from the narcissus plant surrounds the stone. A horned Green Man figure adorns the sides, giving the ring the charm of a romantic Victorian garden. www.omniaoddities.com

DON’T STEAL ORANGES FROM GIANTS

APONIBOLINAYEN IS ILL. NOT VERY ILL, THOUGH. SHE’S JUST GOT ONE FUCKING HELL OF A HEADACHE. SHE ASKS HER HUSBAND, APONITOLAU, IF HE’LL GO AND STEAL SOME MAGIC ORANGES FROM THE GARDEN OF GAWIGAWEN, THE LOCAL SIX-HEADED GIANT.

APONITOLAU IS PRETTY FUCKING STUPID, BUT HE LOVES HIS WIFE, SO HE FUCKS OFF TO GAWIGAWEN’S GARDEN TO SEE WHAT HE CAN DO. ON HIS WAY, HE GETS STOPPED BY AN OLD WOMAN WHO TELLS HIM TO STOP BEING SO FUCKING STUPID BECAUSE HE’LL NEVER COME HOME.

HE IGNORES HER, AND THEN A ROCK TELLS HIM THE SAME THING. AND THEN SO DOES THE LIGHTNING. AND THE THUNDER. EVENTUALLY, THOUGH, HE GETS TO GAWIGAWEN’S GARDEN, BUT THERE’S A FUCKING MASSIVE WALL AROUND IT. FORTUNATELY, THE KING OF THE SPIDERS WEAVES HIM A ROPE TO CLIMB THE WALL WITH.

WHEN HE GETS INTO THE GARDEN, APONITOLAU REALISES THAT THE ORANGE TREE IS MADE OF MOTHERFUCKING KNIVES. HE CLIMBS THE TREE, BEING CAREFUL NOT TO CUT HIMSELF, PICKS SOME ORANGES, TIES THEM TO HIS MAGIC SPEAR, AND THROWS IT ALL BACK TO THE HOUSE. 

THEN HE FALLS OVER, SLIPS ONTO ANOTHER BRANCH, AND ACCIDENTALLY CUTS HIMSELF TO DEATH ON THE KNIFE TREE. IT’S A FUCKING TRAGEDY.
