Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome President Cerberus

Cerberus \Cer"be*rus\, n. (Greek mythology) A monster, in the shape of a three-headed dog, guarding the entrance to Hades

OK, so this was a weird inspiration after seeing the latest Hypnocrites post, The Puppet Master.

Why the hell would anyone be needed to 'guard the entrance to Hades'? It's not like anyone's trying to get in there, is it?

neil,

Well, according to Greek mythology, Hercules had to capture Cerberus as his 12th and final labor. The Greeks believed that if you could enter the Underworld and learn the secrets of the Eleusinian Mysteries from the priests who founded them the sacred rites that you would have happiness in the Underworld (afterlife).

However, the owners of the three heads on President Cerberus sure seemed to make every effort to enter Hades by a different and less noble route!
