Is it even possible for a spiritual being to get PMS let alone a male one?

Depends what the "P" and "M" stand for.  <waggles eyebrows>

Anything is possible, especially when deities are involved.   I've had one phone system, a radio, one blackberry, and two computers self-destruct this week for no good reason.  I'm sticking with my theory based on that alone.

Dude, the mortal men in my life get worse PMS than I do, so I wouldn't put it past a deity.

And yes, I believe that it's completely possible and very likely the deities get PMS from time to time. It's the only way I can explain the behavior of the British Columbia Weather Gods of late. Cheesy

I second that!  My daughter's teenage guy friends (not boyfriends! lol she'll make sure you understand that.) have some of the worst PMS I have ever seen.  Though, they do throw chocolate at her and run when she is PMSing. LOL

What I don't believe in is using differences of opinion as an excuse to make attacks on the person themselves.  Unfortunately, some PETA member can't say the same.  I've seen members of PETA use intimidation and fear to bully people, have been subjected to emotional, hate-filled rants by their members, and have been physically assaulted by a PETA member because I was carrying a leather jacket. In public, on a sidewalk.  In the process of trying to take the jacket from me to wave it as example of "bovine genocide", the highly ethical PETA person shoved me, causing me to fall into the street into the path of an oncoming car. Fortunately the driver had time to react and I limped away with a bruised thigh instead of being taken away in a body bag.

Did you punch the "ethical" dip**** in the face? Or have hir arrested?

LOL. Good that they know the appropriate sacrifices to make to appease the PMSing Goddess. Cheesy (Now if only I could get my guy friends to figure out the same...Wink)

I would debate, but I realized that I sometimes act like a bloodthirsty monster every month or so.  All this time I thought I was secretly a werewolf *shrugs*

The Weather Gods of Virginia have been as well.  Earlier this month, we had snow and t-shirt weather in the same week.

We've been having snow and sundress weather in the same day. Either the Weather Gods have PMS, or they're stoned.  Cheesy

I hadn't heard about that, but am totally not surprised.  Privileged assholery, thy name is PETA.

*shrug* When I wondered if my personal pantheon was too male-heavy, They showed me Themselves in flipped genders... So I don't think Mercury's male (or neutral) gender is any obstacle to PMS.

Since I was walking with a plain clothes police officer at the time, he went directly to jail.   I don't think the little PETA protester was expecting to be thrown to the ground and read his rights by 5'3", 125 pound woman.  Smiley Cheesy Grin

Where's Oaksworn and his chocolate cake in a mug?  Cheesy

::waves::  Over here....  Wink

I'll see what I can do though I can't make any promises as Mercury isn't in my personal pantheon.  After today I'm beginning to think that maybe I need to sacrifice a mug cake to whichever god/dess claims record-keeping in Their demesne...

Thank you.  He's not in my personal pantheon either, but that never stopped him from exerting his influence.   Smiley
