Hey, Athens has its own tutelary deity in Athena, so why shouldn’t Venice get one, too? And Mars and Venice are in fact quite different—the metaphor still works after a fashion. Personally, however, I’d rather be from the place women are from. I hear the pasta on Mars is lousy. Examples:
What a bunch of bunk Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venice is.
I also want to suggest you read a couple of books called Wild at Heart and Men are from Mars Women are from Venice. That would give you a bit of a better understanding of a guys perspective.
The strawberry was a symbol for the Love Goddess, Venice.

Julius Caesar claimed that he was a descendant of the Roman goddess Venice, and you know, of course, that Venice can be traced back to the Babylonian Ishtar, who can be traced back in turn to Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod.
