It was "No-man" not "No one", so when they asked "Who blinded you?" the answer was "No man has blinded me!". Red thumb me for trying to be a know-it-all douche, I don't care. I shall accept them with grace.

Really? When I read it in English class he said his name was, "Nobody" but it was spelt weird. All that's important is that we understand why it's humorous and not hang onto what it would've exactly translated into to.

I mean honestly, it was originally passed on as an oral tale, it was probably all of the above in at least one translation.

Actually, The Odyssey was written in Ancient Greek, so I would find it quite strange for there to be English words in it.

Odysseus tells Polyphemus that his name is Οὖτις in the original text. Nobody, No One, No Man are all acceptable translations. It depends on who your translator was.

Smartass.

******* chapter eleven of Dorian Gray. The rest of the novel is great, but that chapter is so bloody tedious. It's still written by a god, though.

Well, so far none of the women in a song of ice and fire have dressed up in cow fursuits and been ****** from behind by bulls, so Greek mythology still has quite a bit of a lead.

By "you found" you mean you got it off front page.
That and it's completely unrelated.

Say what you will about the book, I've always loved the part in The Great Gatsby where the the drunk driver crashes his car outside the party and he keeps trying to drive it and the crowd all around him is going on like, "you don't even have all your wheels, old sport."
