Subject: RE: BS: First joke thread for the year 500bc
Sorry guys, but for a joke to be funny it has to have some basis in reality. By 500 bce (as bc is now commonly noted in scholarly circles) grunting as language and dinosaurs were long gone. By 500 bce, Greek city-states had been formed. Egyptian an Mesopotamian civilizations were already thousands of years old. Writing and sophisticated art were common.
Big thud here guys.
