I know, I had to show gollum what a taco and burrito were after I got a bewildered response to using the words "Taco Bell". I didn't even go into chimichangas, nachos, or enchiladas.

I took fairest to mean "most appealing/attractive".

The moderator started it.

Back on topic, I voted for the Afro one because I like Phi.

Clearly Hera's more attractive than Aphrodite, because Zeus would have had first choice.




...That just leaves Frigid Athena.

I have to concede: Aphrodite, but I prefer Athena.

Aphrodite, Athena and Artemis were all daughters of Zeus. Apparently the sexual... errrr... liberality... of the Greeks only went so far.

Matrimony? (Which would explain why the Greeks did not consider her the fairest? :wink: )
