The rather louche Greek myth of Ganymede has been omitted from the curriculum of fables taught in middle schools today.
However, the tender young Trojan shepherd’s rape and abduction by Zeus metamorphed as an eagle, was deemed appropriate subject matter for a Budweiser ad, circa 1900.
Ganymede was Zeus “piece”at Mount Olympus and enjoyed great popularity as “cup bearer to the gods”.
Hence the forty-ounce!
Doesn’t it look like a Max Ernst collage?
