JARI

Wogeo Snake Goddess

Snaky Goddess Surgeon

Daughter of GOGO, a primitive snake Goddess.

She married a being called Snake Man but left in a hurry when he ate her mum. Eventually she found KAMARONG, a Lizard Man who was a bit of a mess, having no backside or penis.

She made him genitals from breadfruit and betel nuts and pierced a hole for the waste disposal. Sorted.

They went on to copulate and populate without ever having to call in a plumber.
