  From  THE  DEVIL'S  DICTIONARY  ((C)1911  Released  April  15  1993)  [devils]: 
  ZEUS,  n.  The  chief  of  Grecian  gods,  adored  by  the  Romans  as  Jupiter 
  and  by  the  modern  Americans  as  God,  Gold,  Mob  and  Dog.  Some  explorers 
  who  have  touched  upon  the  shores  of  America,  and  one  who  professes  to 
  have  penetrated  a  considerable  distance  to  the  interior,  have  thought 
  that  these  four  names  stand  for  as  many  distinct  deities,  but  in  his 
  monumental  work  on  Surviving  Faiths,  Frumpp  insists  that  the  natives 
  are  monotheists,  each  having  no  other  god  than  himself,  whom  he 
  worships  under  many  sacred  names
