Cupid Fact File #180 — The Society of the Rhyming Dove is a prose story, written by Lupan Evezan. The fourth Cupid Fact File, it features the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids and also mentions the Society of the Rhyming Dove and the Gang of the Green Gorilla, as well as an individual Cupid, Philatel-426.
Like other Cupid Fact Files, the short story purports itself to be a digitized version of a file from the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids' Archives, detailing information about a target that is, or was once, of interest to the Crew. In this case, it is the secret organization known as the Society of the Rhyming Dove — with most of the article taken up by the history of the Cupids' first encounter with the Society.
- The Cupid Intelligence Institute includes a Department of Postal Services, headed by Philatel-426.
- The Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids eventually allied itself with the Society of the Rhyming Dove.
- The Society of the Rhyming Dove are inexplicably enamored with the idea of locating Atlantean artifacts, as shown (and explained) in Hare-Brained Hooligans (2018).
- When referring to the Gang of the Green Gorilla and their rivalry with the Cupids, the article links directly to a previous installment of Cupid Fact Files that was all about said Gang, Cupid Fact File No. 177 — The Green Gorillas (2019).
