Ahhh...Paradise. by Wildforge Ahhh...Paradise. by Wildforge
There are few who know of Bacchus' twin brother Burpus - opulent deity of Carbonation. Burpus was more beloved by the gods - so his intoxicatedly jealous brother demonized his carbonic ways, making them out to be distasteful to the other gods. Overnight, burping went from being an expression of contentment...to a disgusting habit. Burpus was banished from Olympus, but he retired to Pepperland with a smile on his face...happy to live as his brother should have: Eating, drinking and being merry.

Aaahhh very perceptive of you! Yes there are few who know of Bacchus' brother. And you noticed that unlike his all too often drunken twin, Burpus tends to keep his cloths ON...A sure fire way to differentiate them indeed. Burpus was more beloved by the gods - so his intoxicatedly jealous brother demonized his carbonic ways, making them out to be distasteful to the other gods. Overnight, burping went from being an expression of contentment...to a disgusting habit. Burpus was banished from Olympus, but he retired to Pepperland with a smile on his face...happy to live as his brother should have: Eating, drinking and being merry.

That IS Burpus, the toga gave it away! He and Bacchus were conjoined at the cheek when they were infants and separated right there with Burpus' tremendous belch-power.

Burpus needs a descriptor like "...the Cocaphonic" tagged on the end
