This is for strictly mildly interesting material. If it's too interesting, it doesn't belong. If it's not interesting, it doesn't belong.

This is obviously an objective criteria, so the mods are always right. Or maybe mildly right? Ahh.. what do we know?

Just post some stuff and don't spam.

Ahh, the husband of Incontinentia Buttocks!

Kind of a long name, do they shorten it to a word or two in daily use or go by the full sentence?

Somehow, I don't think they'll consider them works of art worth preserving.

I'm picturing the god of having little wings growing out of your ankles getting cancelled.

From wiki: "Most scholars derive "Hermes" from Greek ἕρμα (herma),[14] "stone heap."[3]: 177 "
