Divine Administrativia

I have no idea how I got on this particular mailing list (and I suspect something has gone drastically wrong because I have), but this came across my desk today, and I thought I’d share it with all of you.

Potato Goddess Form

There is some comfort, I suppose, in knowing that humans are not the only persons in a polytheistic universe who have to deal with ridiculous bureaucracy.


  1. This is even better than I thought!😀

    Perhaps she’d be well suited as the Goddess of Guinness… If only to ease the stress of years as the totally legit Goddess of Definitely Not Un-Indigenous Irish Potatoes X)

    (boil em, mash em, stick em in a stew indeed!)

    • Glad you approve! 😉

      I’m also happy with myself that I thought to do it this way…

      Certainly, though, being a Guinness deity would be something both useful and appreciated by many other folks as well…

      She could have requested a transfer of location, so she could become the Russian Vodka Goddess, I guess…

      My goodness, my Guinness, eh?

    • I think General Guinness might have something to say about that:

      • Indeed…and, I wasn’t even aware of His Excellency’s existence, so my apologies there!

        That’s a lovely piece, though–I especially liked the lines about the Firth of Forth becoming the Firth of Froth, both as a person familiar with Scottish placenames as well as a dyslexic! 😉

        Thanks for sharing this!

      • That was good! Norse Pumpkin Goddess it is, then X) I think you can make booze out of pumpkins too…

      • I believe, by the phrasing, that Mammy Tater also expressed a desire to no longer be a goddess in this next transformation–though I suppose “Norse Pumpkin Lords” can also wear dresses if they like…who am I to question a Pumpkin Lord?

      • Who doesn’t want to be a Pumpkin Lord?

      • John Boehner and Donald Trump already are, so they don’t want to be; and Snooki is a Pumpkin Lady (or “Pumpkin Dame,” perhaps?), so cross her off the list, too…! 😉

      • Ah yes, now that I read it again it looks like you’re right. But hey, if a Pumpkin Lord wants to wear a dress, it just makes it that much more fun!

        That being said, now I have the urge to watch Rocky Horror (I know Tim Curry is in a corset but it’s what came to mind).

      • You might find the “Modern Dionysian Initiation” ritual that took place at PantheaCon last year interesting in this regard–look it up in the search field above and see what it says!

  2. *facepalm*

    • Indeed–that is Mammy Tater’s preferred mudra.

      (But, the Edinburgh Dindshenchas say that it is not her preferred mudra, but instead that she originated it when she found herself in existence, and couldn’t take her own existence seriously.)

  3. 😀

    • I have my moments…! 😉

      • So funny. And I see possibilities for a sequel.

      • Reams of them…for good or ill…!?! 😉
