Satyr Spotting

There he was, a real life satyr on the bridge this morning! Well, except that he had roller skates instead of hooves.

In Greek mythology, satyrs (in Greek, ΣάτυροιSátyroi) are young humans, possibly with horse ears, that roamed the woods and mountains, and were the companions of Pan and Dionysus. In mythology they are often associated with male sex drive and Greco-Roman art often portrays them with erections.
