The Writer’s Almanac points out that today is the birthday of the Greek poet Euripides. How they know this, I do not know, what with the scarcity of written records from that period, the many adjustments made to our calendars over the centuries, etc. etc.
Nonetheless, I took it as a hint that I should finally get around to illustrating one of my very favorite bad jokes of all time.
I’m sure my former college art history professors are thrilled that I’m utilizing my academic major in this way. So happy birthday, Euripides! Rock it up, rip it up, have a ball, dude.
One of my ALL TIME favorites!! Ever.
