Moussaka Strikes Again

Those of you who followed along with my adventures abroad over the summer will know that I developed a slight obsession with moussaka while I was in France. I mean, moussaka is a miracle. It takes something that looks as unappetizing as eggplant and makes it delicious.

But did you know that moussaka can also help you beat Disney villains?

I was reading the Oh My Disney blog because it is fantastic (as you will see if you go to and take a look) and I stumbled across an article which showed that the character Hades mentions moussaka at the beginning of Disney's Hercules. Specifically, that he once choked on it.

Not believing my eyes, I went to YouTube and found this clip:

So it turns out moussaka has been in my life since I was very young and I didn't even know it. Holy cow. The things you find when you re-watch old Disney movies...

But this really brings to light an interesting point: Hades, the ruler of the Underworld, has gotten moussaka stuck in his throat at least once. It could happen again! If Hades ever starts causing trouble again (and Disney, don't you dare make a sequel about that), Hercules could just arrange for him to eat some moussaka and then take him out while he was busy choking. Day saved.

Well... it would have to be a much more sophisticated plan than that, but you get the idea. You always have to capitalize on your opponent's weakness, and one of Hades' weaknesses is apparently moussaka.

Moussaka: What can't it do?
