ICTINIKEAlso known as IKTO, IKTOMI, INKTOMI, UNKTOME
Spider Trickster God of War, Treachery and Mischief
Forget Spiderman, meet Spidergod. More like a cartoon creation, he seems to have spent most of his time trying to outsmart the Great Rabbit MANABOZHO. (Spidey meets Bugs Bunny).On one occasion, or should it be episode, he tricked MANABOZHO out of his very skin, and impersonated the lop-eared japester. MANABOZHO had the last laugh as usual by giving ICTINIKE a large cow-hide blanket. What he didn't tell him was that most of it was still attached to a war drum. (We haven't seen the animation so some details are not at all clear.)
Before long there was a frenzy of pounding. Boing! Blam! Whumpetty! Kerplunk! ICTINIKE bounced all over the place. Finally he boinged high into the air, landed heavily on hard ground and broke his neck. Daffy Duck was never like this.
Laugh? You could split your sides. Even the idea of a spider with a neck. We must stop before we have hysterics.
