Odysseus’s clan had just finished pwning the Trojans in the Trojan War. After celebrating their victory with large amounts of fist-pumping, Odysseus and his men go trolling in the Cicones’ forum. Unfortunately, the Cicones dislike the newfags, and request that the moderators ban them. Odysseus gets perma-banned from the site, and six men from each squad had their accounts deleted for good measure.
The party then attempts to return to their clan’s homepage, Ithaca.net, but due to a 404 Error Redirect, they land on the site of the Lotus Eaters instead. The Lotus Eaters are a group of lethargic people who enjoy watching optical illusions and double rainbows while snacking on some joints. They manage to persuade a few of Odysseus’s men to sample some Lotus/M. C. Escher, and the noobs get their minds blown and refuse to leave the site with the clan. Odysseus pimpslaps some sense into them and brings them with him anyways, and they web-surf away to the forum of the Cyclopes.
Silly 1500 character count, this isn't even a 1/4th of the story!
An asian retold The Odyssey like this for Bilbo's project.
