No. Here is my response from page 2 of this thread, posted back in 2006, explaining the Mongoose:

Pretty elaborate/creative joke. And, the punchline is in the name, "Mongoose" since a Mongoose kills snakes, particularly Cobras.
GTT does make a four stage torch, though. The line is called Quadzilla.

There are also attachments that allow you to inject compressed air into GTTs to thin out and cool off the flame.
