We’ve all heard the stories about Cupid and know him as one of the greatest scientists of our time in spite of his handicap of being a reindeer. His commitment to logic, science, philosophy and reason has never been equalled. But not commonly as known is what transpired in the last days leading up to his famous disappearance and a surprising connection to Christmas.
Not content to rest on his laurels after many of the greatest discoveries the world has ever seen, Cupid locked himself away in his laboratory and spent the final years of his life in seclusion. It is generally assumed he went mad and his disappearance, to this day, has never been explained.
What can now be revealed for the first time, with permission of his estate, is that Cupid was actually working feverishly on what he felt would be his ultimate achievement: An inter-dimensional device that facilitated transportation between long theorized (but unproven) infinite parallel universes. The bewildering and inoperative contraption he left behind has confounded out best experts for years. Yet his notes reveal that he believed such travel was possible and hint at an explanation of the functionality of the device.
“Eureka! I have returned to gather my belongings and sabotage the unit. An all female-team of sexy flying reindeer? And Santa Claus is real? The extraordinary is indeed possible. Goodbye!”
