Odysseus and Company™ in: The Cyclops
Odysseus and Company™ arrive on the coastline of the Cyclopes.
Odysseus takes 12 of his best men along with him to explore one of the cyclopes' cave.
They enter the cave.
"Why not take these cheeses, (...) throw open all the pens, and make a run for it?" [166-168]
The cyclops, Polyphemus, returns. He sees Odysseus and his men.
"Strangers, who are you? And where from?" 
"We are from Troy, Acheaens, blown off course by shifting gales on the Great Sea. (...) Here we stand, beholden for your help, or any gifts you give- as custom is to honor strangers." [204-213]
"Great sir, have a care for the gods' courtesy; Zeus will avenge the unoffending guest." [214-216]
To show his disdain for Odysseus, he swiped up two of his men and ate them.
