The Household Gods and the Darth Vader Corkscrew Queen Kong. Goddess of utopian desire. Will work for peanuts. Mr Atomic. Powerful, if unconvincingly so to look at. Clockbot. Battery flat. Nonetheless, unlike other gods, he is right about something every day. Twice. Shrine. Evidence of ancestor worship. And wishful thinking. Luke Cage. Guaranteeing sweet Christmases since 1972. Cf. the Man, god of sticking it to. Wile E. Coyote. Spirit animal. The Darth Vader corkscrew. Not a household god or deity of any kind. Just a Darth Vader corkscrew. Photographic evidence thereof, because no one believes me. A Christmas present. A nice try. A miss that is every bit as good as a mile.
