What The Ophiuchus Is Going On ?

w8

Many thousands of years ago there lived in a far middle eastern land ……

w41

…… a wise man ……

w5

…….. named El Ralphio of  WadiPress.

w8

He had 1578 goat herding followers …….

w4

…… and he spent his days consulting the oogle Oracle.

w43

w8

Nights were spent singing traditional goat songs around the camp fire ……

w46

“But, YouTube hasn’t been invented yet !” cried El Ralphio of WadiPress’s 1343 followers.

w8

One day, while loitering on the local mountain side, a flash of inspiration came upon El Ralphio of WadiPress.

w21

The oogle Oracle spoke to him, saying,

“Join the dots……

w42

“But, the pencil hasn’t been invented yet !” cried the 1127 followers.

……and create the Zodiac !”

w45

w2

“But, the car hasn’t been invented yet !” cried the 928 followers of El Ralphio.

w8

But wise El Ralphio of WadiPress wisely wisdomised the meaning of the joining of the dots.

12 groups of lines between stars and the Zodiac was born.

w3

w8

To mark this day of oogle Oracle brilliance, El Ralphio of WadiPress was presented with a new throne from the people of the Like tribe.

w7

w8

” But, the lines for Capricorn don’t look like a goat !” cried El Ralphio of WadiPress’s 553 followers (who are now revolting !).

w33

El Ralphio of WadiPress then spake this immortal word,

” WHAT ??”

and added,

“Thousands of years in the future, people will read their stars in the newspaper. Reading words such as,

“Capricorn ! You are horny and have a great butt !”

w36

“But, the newspaper hasn’t  been invented yet !” cried his 275 followers.

w8

El Ralphio of WadiPress devised a cunning plan to confuse, in thousands of years’ time, his descendant, Ralph of WordPress, who would think he was a Sagittarian as he was born on the 15th of December.

w11

w12

w23

El Ralphio of WadiPress secretly inserted a 13th group of lines into the zodiac and he called this one Ophiuchus, basically a man playing with his big snake.

w17

Ralph of WordPress is totally confused now !

He shouldn’t be as he doesn’t read his daily stars, as there are no daily newspapers in the mountains of southern Spain. Oh, and he’s an Ophiuchan now and who would want to write about a 13th daily star sign !

w28

w18

What does this mean ?

That’s definitely Ralph of WordPress in the video, but he does love cats !

w8

“As well as the Zodiac I have created a land in the west by joining the dots. I’m brilliant !” cried El Ralphio of WadiPress, as his last follower left him.

w32

w8

El Ralphio of WadiPress was last heard of when he wandered off to find Spain with his two cats……

w31

…… while consulting the oogle Oracle on the way.

w43

w8

Nowadays, Ralph of WordPress consults the Google Oracle in Spain with his two cats……

w47

…..while trying to work out how to join dots.

w15

w8

Do you have a wacky ancestor, or are you a wacky descendant ?

I know which one YOU are !

  1. I had a crazy grandmother (not the wife of the Grandfather I refer to in my blog) She used to scare me at night when she came out of the bathroom without her false teeth and with her long flowing grey hair that came down to her knees, wearing a long white night gown. She also scared me during the day when she chased me up the tree waving a large wooden spoon around in a threatening manner. She smoked guava leaves in a pipe and said she saw antelope on the house’s roof (Now I am not so sure they were guava leaves…)

    • Oh boy ! Poor girl ! She would have scared me half to death too Daleen. I’ll have to try guava and see what’s trotting around on my roof, It’ll either be a Sagittarian or Santa Claus late as usual 😉 Thank you for the story of your crazy grandmother my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❤

  2. Wahahahaha!!! God where does your brain get these wonderful stories? Well…I think I had an ancestor that was a red-headed biking pirate. I don’t know why, one day I just sensed it. Btw, I am a Sagittarius too! 😀

    • Viking, not biking! Although…maybe he thought up the bike way before it was actually invented, but he was just was too caught up in piracy to fabricate one…O_o. Could be.

      • You are soooo funny Jami ! I just love the description of your red headed biking Viking pirate ancestor. Maybe he was also engrossed too much in hiking to be much of a pirate. So my take on your ancestor is a red headed biking hiking Viking pirate. Now that would make a good book ! 😀 Ralph xox ❤

  3. Funny Post Dear Ralph!
    I find Ophiuchus to be a bit of a dotted character. “lol”
    It’s inspiring really. Now I”m thinking of a constellation for me! Actually, i see how we can each have our own constellation. Of course there would be crossover stars ⭐ ⭐
    Okay, off to think of a name for my constellation!
    Here’s a “Goat Heard” for you!

  4. I am the wacky descendant.
    Based on genealogical research, when I cared about that stuff, I came to the conclusion that my ancestors were sod farmers, shopkeeps, and all the boring jobs in between, and with little personality to match.

    My ancestors? I come from a long line of very English peasants, land-workers, stone quarrymen…not a drop of any other blood is there running in my veins….

      At least now you have an artist in your family tree unless you are going to take up the family tradition of stone quarrying 😉

  7. What a brilliant idea to have a thirteenth sign of the zodiac. You certainly had your Ophiuchus thinking cap on when you dished all this up. Hope El Ralphio of Wadipress made good use of his amazing new throne (have you inherited it, by the way?) and the pic of the cat with the balloon is a real hoot. I’ve never seen a cat jump so high … and backwards! I can’t say I have any ancestors as amazing as yours, Ralph. You’re a lucky man to have inherited such genes. Do your muscles match up? Great post again. 🙂

  14. Thank you for liking “Dreaming of Spring” and several of my other graphic design posts. I heard about Ophiuchus as the 13th sign of the zodiac on the news. The news made a big deal about it very briefly, and then Ophiuchus fell out of the news cycle. I wondered what happened to it. I don’t think it caught on. Ophiuchus sounds like some kind of disease that was invented by Dr. Seuss. 🙂
