Found an interesting puzzle off an Australian site, thought I'd share ;):

 

 

 

Joe Nobody awoke feeling like a dog, with a strong urge 
to go back to his old family. He went to answer the door, 
where two people were there saying they were his long 
lost parents—but only in order to claim the $50,000 
reward. Joe ran to a nearby trash heap, and then began 
robotically sorting the waste while talking to his 
cockroach friend. Joe was found there, and got into a 
boxing fight, in which all parties were hurt badly, with 
Joe breaking their ribs with two quick jabs but in turn 
taking a lot of damage to his eye, and eventually they 
decided to call it a draw. Joe then phoned home. 
Following their advice, he cut a hole in a metal bucket to 
see out of and stuck it over his head. However, the 
bucket turned out to be full of pig’s blood, and Joe was 
soaked in it, making him very angry. After all his failed 
matchmaking, Joe decided to marry his only critic, 
someone almost twice his age. However, Joe was 
surprised when he was instead insulted and called a 
“lascivious Moor”. He retorted by saying that “stupid” is 
as stupid does.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

I am honestly so lost with where this puzzle goes, but I have to point out that:

Not sure what to do with that.

I can see the latter one now. I think that's the idea - every line refers to a different work with the theme you mentioned.

Probably not. 

A lot of them don't fit with the Odyssey, and I think it's already been shown that the lines have nothing to do with one another. Also, the one about eye damage and ribs fits more with my latest one, though that one wasn't actually a draw...
