    The popular mock fruit canned drink Tantalize was today banned after the publication of a shock report. In it, government ministers lambasted the effects after several two-headed, eight-armed or three-legged babies were born to mums who had become addicted to the drink. Spokespersons for Tantalize repudiated the claims, saying "two heads are better than one, three legs provide better support, and think what you could do with eight arms". A government spokesperson, invited to comment, said simply "Sick".

  4. Lady Dione’s Vigil

    by Broteas Pleiad

    Since 1253BC, every day Lady Dione visits her husband Tantalus in the Tartarus. She is not able to give him any aid. He never reaches the branches of fruit and the water withdraws. She wonders if she is too part of the punishment now. For her husband can see her but never touch her.

    “He is vexed beyond any tantalizing. I believe is he is mad now.” Lady Dione, her divine face marred by frown lines. Lady Dione had put into Lord Hades to mitigate his punishment, but he is unresponsive.

    When asked for a comment, the Underworld’s judge, Aeacus, replied, “All decision are final. If we released Tantalus, then Ixion will want to come off his wheel and Danaid’s will want to stop filling their basin. If you don’t want the time, don’t do the crime.”
