"Whats up with the name The Glass Onion?
Originated from the Beatles song "Glass Onion" from their white album. It means to overanalyze something that is not intended to mean anything more then what it is. The entire point of the Glass Onion song was to poke fun at all the people who had looked for deep messages in previous beatle songs. It also is the name for a small window in a sarcophagus, as well as large hand blown glass bottles used aboard sailing ships to holdwine or brandy. For increased stability on rough seas, the bottles were fashioned with a wide-bottom shape to prevent toppling, thus making the bottles look somewhat onion-shaped. In England, a monacle is also referred to as a "glass onion". But I just used it because I like The Beatles and it had the word "glass" in the title."
