The dictionary tells that the word ‘Corinthian‘ means “involving or displaying the highest standards of sportsmanship” which takes Neil Gaiman’s nightmare character The Corinthian to a whole new level.
See, if corinthian meant nightmare-with-teeth-for-eyes-that-likes-to-eat-eyes, well, that would be clear. With a meaning like “high standards of sportsmanship” it explains a whole lot more about the personality of the character. He is a good sport at and about what he does (eating eyes).
Speaking of eating eyes! Look at the following link!!! with your eye teeth! For only US$165 you can terrify the pants off people. These are contact lenses that are black with white teeth round the edges. Scary – check. Awesome – check.
Now you, too, can be a soul destroying nightmare!
