Where strange fact and stranger fiction collide

Ode to Pop Culture in the Key of Y.

A friend of mine has a writing project on Facebook. He challenged us to pick a letter and write a poem based on said letter. I chose ‘Y” because will why not? I chose to make it about pp culture figures whose name started with the letter “Y” because well I am me.

You will notice a four out of fourteen are from the Cthulhu Mythos. I am not sure if that is because of the letter “Y” or again because of me. Though in general it is a rather eclectic group, Super Fly, Shakespeare, Lovecraft, Saturday morning cartoon Icons even a Lone Gunman reference.

Surprisingly the ones that should have been no brainers like Yoshi and Yogi Bear came to me at the end. let me know of any you think I missed.

Yogi is smarter than the average bear.
Yorick’s skull Hamlet held in the air.

Youngblood Priest is a cool cat.
Yig is a snake god who knows all that.

Yves Adele Harlow is a mercenary, but not really bad.
Yoda, Luke’s mentor never got mad.

Y’Golgonac, is the most perverse of Cthulhu’s crew.
Yondu is an alien whose skin is blue.

Yellow Kid of the first comic fame
Yin Sid is a wizard made out of Disney’s name.

Yith the great race can travail time.
Yugothian Fungi will steal your mind.

Yoshi a dinosaur you can ride. Color of green.
