When Ancient Meets Funny
Endeavors in philosophy and mythology immortalized the ancient Greeks, but what you won't find in the history books is their serious love of the funny. The same forefathers who imparted the Socratic Method and the Parthenon also passed on a wealth of filthy quips and goofy wisecracks. Some of these jokes still hit the mark, while others will have you groaning with laughter, even if it is because they're so bad, they're good.
