    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.

    Tickle Yourself With Ancient Quips, Such As:

    Hairdresser: How shall I cut your hair, sir?
    Client: In silence

    An idiot hears that a crow can live for up to 200 years, so he buys one to see if it's true.

    An Abderite owes someone a donkey, but doesn't have one. So he asks the guy if he can repay his debt in two installments.
