Cthulhu’s Minions: Evil Gods for Atheists

After I botched it last night, the Lovecraftians have regrouped and we will be having Cthulhu panel at FtBCon 2. It’s tonight, at 10pm Central (in about 2 hours). Confirmed: Michael Davis, Robert Price, Toren Atkinson, and me. A few others have been invited and might show up. If you’re desperately excited about shambling horrors from the outer darkness and really, really want to join in, email me, maybe I’ll squeeze you in. Also, we might need sacrifices.


And…here we are.

    Notwithstanding Universal’s Despicable Me syndicate, “minion” is the plural of “minion.”

    Ever since learning what Cthulhu was, it always struck me as deeply ironic how people fear and loathe him but have no such feelings about Yahweh. When Cthulhu kills you, you DIE. You stop existing. End of story. Yahweh tortures for all eternity. No one’s ever started a war for Cthulhu.

    Which one is the insanity-causing monster again?

    I was struggling to find the source of my long held error and the best I can come up with is my own confusion over minion and minyan. However, I saw some reference to minyans too, so I’m guessing I internalized an erroneous rule and your challenge caused me to correct it. Fwiw, I’ll stick to a more egregious error later.

    “minion” is the plural of “minion.”

    Huh? Whatever gave you that idea?

    In at least one case, mind, “Minions” is the singular.

    Oops, sorry, you’d already corrected. I really should read to the end of the thread.
