F is for Furies


The Furies were the three Underworld goddesses who worked as Hades henchwomen and punished evildoers, in particular, mortals. Their names were Alecto (the unremitting one), Megaira (the envious one), and Tisiphone (the avenger of murder).
Now, in all honesty, who do the Furies remind you of? A trio of gangster flunkies? Assassins in Bill’s Deadly Viper Assassination Squad? The police, henchmen of the government?
Hmmmm......
If you look at Hades as the symbol for “government”, then you might have something there. Think about it. Hades punished the bad people but in turn, demonstrated his talent for being pretty freaking bad himself. Does that not sound like the government to you?
But hey, what do I know. I hate politics and love men in uniforms. Go figure.
