Gozer is in my brain

Certain 24 hour news network people have been playing a game of word association with me all day long. The word is Gozo, which of course is the Island of Gozo, and which I won't even bother saying what the story is with Gozo. I think everyone already knows that.

So, every time they say Gozo, I can't help but think of Gozer, also known as The Goze, Gozey, and, Gozer the Gozerian. Please tell me I'm not the only one associating Gozo with Gozer. Okay, maybe I am. But everyone knows who Gozer is, anyway. Right?

If I recall correctly, Gozer was the Sumerian father of all things evil. One of his several offspring was the equally evil Zuul. It was about 25 years ago when I had my own personal brush with Zuul:

Sorry to everyone who's already heard the story. Feel free to skip it. I know. I need some new stories.

Where I work there is an old computer system called "Keymaster". Everytime I hear that I think of KeyMaster Gozer. Is that the same thing?

I think Gozer bestows keymaster status upon the unwitting. So, yeah, it sounds like Gozer has been to your office. Be careful.
