Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, in Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift (also known as Dean Swift) that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature.
The book became popular as soon as it was published John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery"; since then, it has never been out of print.
Gulliver's Travels in Southern VictoryEdit
After Erasmus Fish's store and Cafe closed down, Scipio tried to get his old job back from John Oglethorpe. When he found out what happened to Erasmus, Ogelthorpe revealed that he wasn't a fan of the Freedom Party, calling them "yahoos". This made Scipio wonder if Oglethorpe had read Gulliver's Travels and was comparing them to the behaviour of the Freedom Party or was just using the word as a general term of contempt. Scipio didn't ask so as not to reveal his educated past.

While Vanessa Ferguson and the rest of her salvage crew were working in Fredonia, Kansas, she got into an argument with her supervisor. She thought of him as a yahoo who didn't know what a yahoo actually was, namely as characters from Gulliver's Travels that were described as being filthy and with unpleasant habits, resembling human beings far too closely.
