Aw poor Midas, after getting rid of the golden touch something worse happens to him, something that he could not get rid of.
How dare you not declare me god of awesomesauce!
Now after losing the golden touch, King Midas participated in a little competition (seeing a pattern here?) between the Music god Apollo and a satyr named Marsyas. He was one of the judges along with the muses (who were like the groupies of Apollo). Now after all was said and done, everyone declared Apollo the winner, that is except Midas. You see where this is going do you.
Because the gods have no concept of opinion (much like most people on the internet), Apollo assumed that Midas life should be ruined for not liking his music, so he did what any other reasonable deity would do, giving Midas ass ears, because apparently donkeys have poor taste in music. (Who knew?) In the end, after successfully hiding it for a while Midas' secret was found out and he committed suicide in shame.
More like god of jackasses (GET IT?)
And to close this blog with one last act of douchebaggery, here's what Apollo did to Marsayas after winning.
Maybe you'll learn your lesson next time after you get flayed
