"A Little Piece of Heaven. This is an illustration of [your-deity-of-choice] disciplining a demon sloth. As you can see, this sloth is guilty of defecating on disabled children and smoking marijuana. The Lamb of God is assisting by biting the sloth with the Fang of Justice. [ed. note: The Lamb of God bears the Twin Fangs of Justice and Karma] The Lamb of God has a jetpack and lovely eyelashes, and is being motivated by the Carrot of Motivation, forged by Hephaestus who can be seen in the background, forging the Carrot of Depression. The Banana of Judgment is hovering overhead, silently disapproving of the sloth, while Lactose the Intolerant pours chocolate milk on the sloth's head. This illustration is widely believed to be the most accurate representation of Heaven ever created, as many artists fail to realize that Hephaestus is an emo hobo."
Lactose the Intolerant has got to be the funniest demigod name ever. I laughed until I hurt. And look at little Hephaestus the emo hobo, hard at work at his anvil. He's so cute I'd like to adopt him.
This one was loosely inspired by a rural home/business/homestead that we spotted while driving with a hand-painted sign that announced:
We wondered how many years they'd been trying to sell their egg. It was a very old sign.
I like the cross-eyed dog with the mustache.
