But Babi could also be helpful to humans. His aggression was considered aspirational by leaders, hopefully minus the entrail-eating, and he could ward off danger, like snakes and rough waters. He was also, in a nod to the infamous sexual appetite of baboons, one horny monkey. Men could petition him to ensure that they'd be able to enjoy sex in the afterlife, and he could supposedly control darkness and the sky because "his phallus is the bolt on the doors of heaven."
Babi's dingus was so important in mythology that he was usually portrayed fully aroused, and his erection was sometimes shown as the mast of the ferry that took the dead through the underworld to their final judgment. And, as a publication that's built a life out of such jokes, we can appreciate any cosmology that says "When you die, you go on a challenging journey to reach a test that determines whether you will enjoy eternal paradise or suffer endless unrest. Also, you have to look at a baboon's enormous turgid manhood the whole time."
