Chas and Jack were in a taverna in Ancient Greece enjoying the local beer, when six women burst noisily into the bar.

“Ancient Greek hen night I expect!” whispered Jack.

“That’s ‘cocked’ up our quiet pint then!” moaned Chas.

Seeing the lads, the women made a beeline for them, giggling and introducing themselves in turn.

“Theia!” “Rhea!” “Themis!” “Mnemosyne!” “Phoebe!” “Tethys!”

“Buy us a drink boys, we’re short of drachmas and we’re celebrating Rhea getting knocked up by our little brother!”

“Is that legal here?” asked Jack.

“We’re Titans!”

“Bloody tight!” grumbled Chas... adding, “Just the way I like ‘em!”

    A bit of a grubby joke, I fear, but at least it’s educational too! And original.

    Haha! I'll have to look up the official story. My knowledge of Greek mythology is rather vague.

    The myth is true! (🥴). There were 6 female Titans... and those were their names, in birth order I believe. And it’s true (in the myth!) that Rhea got impregnated by her younger brother Cronus (is this where ‘cronyism’ came from?). They didn’t seem to worry about ‘keeping it in the family’ back then... maybe they didn’t know so much about genetics way back then! (Or maybe they didn’t notice how odd they were!😁).

    Just in case it’s different in the US, ‘tight’ also means ‘mean’ (money wise)!
