Supreme Ruler Seeks Beautiful Woman (reposted on 5/7, 5/11, 5/20, 6/20, 7/15, 7/20 . . . )
I’m just your average (cough, cough) supreme ruler looking to seduce another unsuspecting woman. Must be
gullible (kinda like me!) and beautiful. Not that I’m superficial or anything . . . I value and demand right action from
everyone. . . except myself that is.
I like movies. Particularly the ones about me. I enjoy long walks on the earth for the sole purpose of admiring
my baes. And I have a lot. I mean, I’m pretty irresistible what with my awesome looking thunderbolt and my affinity
for eagles and oak trees. I am definitely hotter than either of my two brothers.
Worried that my wife Hera might get in the way? Don’t be! She usually doesn’t find out until after and then
she never takes her anger out on me . . . After all, I’m the Lord of the Sky, the Rain-god, the Cloud-gatherer. What
does she expect?
