Description
Their endeavors in philosophy and logic notwithstanding, the ancient Greeks and Romans also loved a good fart joke. This collection of truly old humor—originally published in Britain as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum—is faithfully translated from the 4th-century Philogelos, by two Greek funnymen of the Roman Empire. You'll find timeless gems that still hit the mark ("A landlord sees that his tenants are really happy. So he evicts them.") as well as groaners that are truly showing their age—or maybe it's all in the way you tell it—including doctor jokes, eunuch jokes, cowards, various foreigners, mean husbands, horny wives, and lots and lots of idiots.
