Thursday Trivia

Thursday Trivia

It's a little known fact, but the 80's children's cartoon Voltron is based on the life of President Gerald Ford. Most people do not know that Ford was formed by five mechanical lions. Most people thought Ford to be slow-thinking. This is not necessarily true, as his thoughts and actions were the result of the five personalities who drove the five lions. Unfortunately, those five personalities were slow-thinking.

It is also little known that the life of Gerald Ford was, in fact, based on the life of writer, thinker and satirist H.L. Mencken. Mencken was himself the gestalt personification of five goblins.

It should be noted that most writers from the nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century were made up of combinations of goblins, hobgoblins, gargoyles, orks and any number of your lesser imps and demons.
