The original motherfucker
Those redneck douches over there are real Oedipi (plural for Oedipus)
A character in two tragdies by Sophocles, "Oedipus Rex" and "Oedipus at Colonus." When he was born it was prophesized that Oedipus would grow to murder his father, and marry his mother. His father, King Laios of Thebes, ordered his shepard to kill him, but instead he gave him to the king of Corinth. When he grew up, he learned about his destiny, but belived that his Corintian parrents were his biological parrents, he fled to Tebes. There he ran into his real fother on the road, and after a dispute killed him. However, Oedipus was able to save the city of Tebes from sphynx and was offered his mother's hand in marrige. The play "Oedipus Rex" takes place a number of years after that incodent. Thebes is undergoing a plague Oedipus learns the truth about his heritige, and so his mother/wife kills herself, and he blinds himself, and is baneshed from Thebes. In "Oedipus at Colonus" he is about to die, and is purifing himself, to be buried as a Greek hero. However, civil war has broken out in Thebes between is two sons, and they want to try and get Oedipus' body back to Thebes, so that one of the sons might win.
Oedipus is the ultimate tragic hero. All others, such as Hamelt, or Romeo, don't hold a candle to him.
A man who gives a new meaning to the word "Mother F*cker".
Oedipus was born to Laius (king of Thebes) and Jocasta (queen of Thebes). At birth, it was fortold that he would murder his father and marry his mother. Laius, not wanting this, sent Oedipus into exile. However, Oedipus did not die, instead he was found and adopted by the king and queen of Corinth. Later in his life, he is told that the king of Corinth is not his real father and escapes to Thebes. On his way, he met a traveler. They got into a fight and Oedipus killed him. When he reaches Thebes, he meets a beutiful widow, (who is the queen) and marries her. They are happy together and have four kids. However, this happiness is broken when Odeipus finds out that the traveler he killed was his real father, Laius, and he married his mother, Jocasta. In reaction to this, he cuts out his eyes and sets out in the world. When Jocasta finds out this, she hangs herself. (Or Vice Virsa) All the children are killed.
Happy story isn't it? :)
