Fun with ancient Egypt!

So, um, I write fanfiction. And I'm reading a history of ancient Egypt so my current fic isn't *too* anachronistic. And guess what I found.



Set the god? Was depicted with the head of a donkey.

SET IS AN ASS. LITERALLY.

It made me smile first thing when I woke up this morning and started reading again after finishing the morning paper. I thought it might make some of you smile, too.

So, is Set (the character) an ass because Set (the god) is an unpopular ass of a god? Discuss all possible implications of this.

That's all. I know, I'm lame.
