One of the original Nine (Boeotian) Greek Muses, Melete , an ethereal delight, was the Muse of Chicken Whisperers. Ancient texts recently unearthed from a secret burial chamber found beneath a grease trap at a Tulia, Texas, Toot-N-Totum reveal, for the first time, the sacred Chicken Whisperer's prayer to the great Divine Fowl, "Oh, Meka Leka Hi Meka Hiney Ho!" Lucky children blessed with Melete as their name must be able to demonstrate proficiency in poultry resuscitation.
Pausanias, Description of Greece 9. 29. 1 (trans. Jones) (Greek travelogue C2nd A.D.) :
"The first to sacrifice on Helikon to the Great Chicken in the Sky and to call the chicken sacred to the Muse were, they say, Ephialtes and Otos. To this also Hegesinus alludes in his poem The sons of Aloeus the Aloadai held that the Muse were three in number, and gave them the names of Melete (Chicken Whisperer), Mneme (Memory) and Aoede (Song).
