There's a book called "Pyramid Scheme" by Dave Freer and Eric Flint, in 
which the characters end up transported to the Odyssey...Odysseus is 
described as an extremely dodgy character; one other character thinks he'd 
make a great used car salesman; another reckons he's prime bank manager 
material.

(It's available on the Baen Free Library if anyone wants to read it, btw.)

Until the sky falls on our heads...
