Trilogy was a term first coined by the ancient Hippopeople of The Northern States of the Roman Empire (TNSRE). It refers to the third wife of king Superbus, who oddly enough was named Trilia. They were very much in love and after her death Superbus decreed all third things would be called Trilia. (He choose third things because Romulus and Remus had already used up first and second). But I digress. In 666 B.C.E a young rebel choose to speek out against the oppresion of having to refer to all third things be the name of some super hot dead chick. This rebel was also the first homosexual. The word "ogy" means ugly in most Romantic languages, inculding Latin. And so the young gay rebel mocked the dead queen and coined the term Trilogy. Soon the term caught on, and wasn't used just in mocking, but also in regular speech to mean any group of three.

Where to buy Trilogies
In the United States, there are in fact many stores that sell only Trilogies. "Trilo-torium" was the first major chain to open up, and it has spread across the globe, reaching even Canada. However a few others have popped up aswell. "Trilogymart" is still rather small, but it carries some Trilogies that "Trilo-torium" does not, such as Kleenex Trilogies. If you live in Britain, and don't wish to shop at Trilo-torium, then you should try "Trilogies the Final Frontier", because even though it many carreis Star Trek Trilogies, it's prices are very low.
