Blargharath 10-6-09 Picture

This was so awesome, and since everyone loved it so much, I just had to put it on here. For honors history class, we had to make up a mythological Greek monster hybrid (or something like that) and mine was a hybrid of the griffin, cyclops, minotaur, and Mars's Stymphalian birds. I give you, Blaraghath. Along with the pictures, we had to write the monster's attributes and a story to go along with them. [Story copied straight from my [link] to follow]

Zeus smashed his spine with his mighy fist, but not before Blaraghath shot his sharp feathers out at Zeus. He got a feather stuck in his side. Blaraghath's eye glowed as he mumbled some random gibberish, before taking his final breath. And now, every Monday, the feather lodged in Zeus's side hurts. And that is why Mondays suck. so. hard.
