  1. I always thought that the Green Man thing developed out of the Greek Hermai (head and genitals of Hermes, on a pillar, placed at boundaries and crossroads, rub ’em for luck, plus they help keep the boundary safe). I realize that I have no evidence for this whatsoever, and it probably is false.But ‘viridios’ sounds like a breakfast cereal. A *green* breakfast cereal.

  2. Hmm. I’m not sure if that supports my pondering or undermines it. Because, again, there’s a head placed in a sacred space. Of course, I keep the heads of men on pikes around my house, but that’s just because Feminism requires it. I hadn’t considered that they might have some sacred purpose.Viridios does sound like a breakfast cereal (and to bring it back to Hermes), the breakfast cereal for the priapicly challenged. Eat Viridios and you won’t need Viagra!
