Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Greek Clods

“Eratosthenes?”

“Hey, Aristophanes!”

“How goes it?

“Good, good. Hey, which one of us is plays and which one is math?”

“Complete honesty? I cannot tell any of us apart.”

“Please don’t–”

“They’re all Greeks to me.”

“–do the bit I think you’re…there it is.”

“Yeah.”

“Whatcha up to?”

“I’m working on a new invention: I call it the triangle.”

“Well, you had a lot of success with the square.”

“Hell, yeah. Square put my kids through gymnasium. What about you?”

“Me and some the guys from the forum on working on this new thing called Democracy.”

“Democracy? What is it?”

“New form of government. Everyone gets a vote. Well, not women or slaves or the poor.”

“That does sound better than our current system of ‘doing what the richest man tells you or he kills you.'”

“It does, but it turns out that nothing much gets accomplished. Apparently, if you tell people their opinions are valuable, they believe you.”

“Even the stupid people?”

Especially the stupid people.”

“I’m sure it’ll fix itself over time.”

“Yeah”

“I’m working on a new thing, too. It’s called the internet.”

“Sounds interesting. How’s it going?”

“Not well. It turns out you need to invent, like, a million other things first.”

“You should ask Archimedes.”

“I would, but I don’t know if he lives in the same century as us.”

“My knowledge of Ancient Greece is surprisingly spotty, too.”

“The very fact that you called it ‘Ancient Greece’ raises SO many questions.”

“Ah, forget about it. Morally acceptable sex with boys?”

“Hell, yeah. I’m buying.”
