…the ancient Greek myth about Orion (the Hunter). In one version of the myth, Orion boasted that the greatest beast on earth could not defeat him. Angered at Orion's arrogance, Zeus sent the scorpion to sting him to death. So Orion was defeated, not by the greatest beast, but by one of the smallest. He was then placed in the night sky for all to see the consequence of his vanity. (Scorpio, the scorpion, would occupy a place in the sky exactly opposite Orion--so for us, Scorpio is visible in the summer, and Orion is visible only in the winter, and the two are not both visible in the sky at the same time.)

I like to think of Shitgibbon as being so arrogant like Orion, and suffering a similar fate--brought down to humiliating destruction by his own infinite hubris and self-worship. I certainly hope for it.
