Contrary to common belief the spleen is an entirely mythical organ. The idea of a spleen was first used by Weetabix.INC in 1934 in a series of adverts, in which a small boy proclaims the legend 'A Weetabix for breakfast keeps the spleen at its bestest'. Interestingly, the word 'spleen' pops up in ancient Greek mythology, where it appears to have been some sort of hideous creature described as a 'double headed alpaca, with scaly wings trimmed with fake fur and the legs of a jam jar'. Modern day etymologists now believe that something was lost or changed in the translation of this script; regrettably the original source of this description has never been located and it is believed to either be a fake, or the scriblings of a mad 13th century artist known as Anthon Corsque.
